Do you like fantasy football, frisbee golf, and Dad joke-esque word puns? You might just be a fun guy, or “fungi.” Ha, we've been waiting years to write that joke, and we saved it for a truly delicious meal. Potatoes and parsnips combine for a sweet and soft side, along with a succulent steak. (Alliteration is a kind of pun!) But the star is the porcini cream sauce, a rich bath of umami and creamy goodness, just perfect for "fungis," or any guys who enjoy easy and delicious meals.

Before You Cook
Prepare the Ingredients
Add ¾ cup boiling water and mushrooms to a mixing bowl. Set aside at least 10 minutes. Discard any remaining boiling water. Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
While mushrooms soak, trim ends off parsnip and peel. Cut into ½" dice.
Cut potato into ½" dice.
Trim and thinly slice green onions. Keep white and green portions separate.
Pat steaks dry, and season both sides with a pinch of salt and pepper.
Cook the Vegetables
Place a large oven-safe pan over medium-high heat and add 2 Tbsp. olive oil. Add potatoes and parsnips to hot pan and stir occasionally until lightly browned, 4-6 minutes.
Stir in ½ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper. Place pan in hot oven and cook until vegetables are tender, 10-12 minutes.
While vegetables roast, cook steaks.
Cook the Steak

Add steaks to hot pan and cook until steaks are browned and reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side.
Remove steaks to a plate and tent with a foil.
Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Make the Sauce

Add strained mushrooms, white portions of green onions, and wine to hot pan and stir occasionally until wine is evaporated, 1-3 minutes.
