Michael Jordan’s 23 Delmonico Steak

23 is Michael Jordan’s famous restaurant in Chicago. This is a reproduction of their recipe for the Delmonico Steak, which is a fantastic grilled rib-eye.

This recipe serves 4.


  • 4 14 ounce rib-eye steaks
  • 2 portabello mushrooms, stems and gills removed
  • 12 sun-dried tomatoes
  • 4 fresh rosemary sprigs
  • salt and pepper to taste

Steak Sauce:

  • 1 cup beef stock
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup shallots, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup carrots, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup celery, finely chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste


1 Combine the ginger, shallots, carrots and celery in a saucepan over a medium-high heat. Caramelize the sauce (which means sauté until browned slightly).

2 Slowly pour in the balsamic vinegar, stirring the sauce. Reduce by 1/2 and add beef broth. Bring to a boil. Add salt and pepper to taste.

3 Place the steaks on the grill. Season the mushrooms with salt and pepper and place on grill. Grill steaks to desired doneness and the mushrooms until they are tender. Remove everything from the grill.

4 Cut the mushrooms into small triangles. Skewer the mushrooms pieces with sun-dried tomatoes onto rosemary sprigs.

5 Place each grilled steak on a plate. Top with rosemary skewers and sauce before serving.
