Steak Marsala Recipe

As you know, I just returned from an amazing vacation in Myrtle Beach.  While there we ate at this place called Angelo's Steak & Pasta that we had heard about on the closed circuit t.v. in the hotel room.  Their signature dish is the Twin Fillets with a Marsala Sauce

It was CRAZY good and I knew in an instant I HAD to recreate this dish at home.  It took me a while to figure out, what I think, was in the sauce. But once I did...OH MAN!  I am so excited about this recipe so...

Let's Get Started!
Steak Marsala:
*Prep Time:  30 min.  *Cook Time:  12 min.  *Difficulty:  Easy  *Servings:  4 Fillets 


A picture of the ingredients for the steak Marsala.

  • 4 6 oz. Fillets
  • 1/2 c. Butter
  • 1/2 c. Heavy Whipping Cream
  • 1/2 c. Marsala Wine
  • 4 large Cremini Mushrooms, sliced
  • All Purpose Seasoning
  • Salt and Pepper 

Sliced mushrooms on a cutting board.

To begin, you will need to slice the mushrooms.

An empty skillet sitting on a stove top.

Then place a skillet over medium/high heat and add 2 tbsp. of butter.

Once the skillet is hot and the butter has melted, add the mushrooms.

Fully cooked, sliced mushrooms, in the skillet.

Cook until the mushrooms are soft and tender, about 4-5 minutes.

Remove from the pan and place in a dish on the counter.

Add the rest of the stick of butter to the pan and let it melt.

Then add the Marsala wine.

Then the heavy whipping cream.
I never said this dish was healthy.  It is EXTREMELY indulgent, but you have to treat yourself sometimes!

Whisk it all together and let simmer until it thickens.

Season with salt and...

 A little pepper.

Return the mushrooms to the pan.
Stir and sit to the side.

Two fillets on a cutting board with salt being sprinkled on them.

Now it is time to focus on the steaks.

I used a 2 in. 6 oz. fillet for this, but any steak will do.
However the cooking times will vary if you use a different cut.
You always want to cook your steaks at room temperature, so about 30 minutes prior to cooking, set them out on the counter.

Once at room temperature, you will want to season them.
I start with salt and pepper...

Two fillets on a cutting board with steak seasoning being sprinkled on them.

Then a little of my homemade All-Purpose Seasoning...

A steak with seasoning being rubbed into it.

I gently rub the seasoning into the fillets.

Two steaks on a grill.

Then I take them out to my preheated grill.
I cook them over a medium/high heat for 5-6 minutes per side.
I know that seems like a long time, but remember, this is a THICK steak.
This will yield the PERFECT medium steak.
Cook a little longer for well done, a little less for medium rare or rare.

Once the steaks are done, remove them from the grill and let them rest for 10 minutes.

The steak Marsala on the plate, with a section revealing a perfectly medium steak, served with mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables.

Now serve with creamy mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables, pour the luscious Marsala sauce over the steak, and you are ready to eat!

This Steak Marsala Recipe is perfect for ANY special occasion or if you just simply want to treat yourself.  And let's face it, you DESERVE to treat yourself from time to time.
