Burrata and Steak Crostini
Burrata & Steak Crostini
This: burrata and steak crostini recipe is the ultimate appetizer. (I would have a whole platter for dinner as well, though) One of my favorite burrata recipe ideas. Creamy burrata on top of garlicky sourdough toasts, and perfectly cooked hanger steak topped with pepper flakes, chives and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar – name me a better appetizer? I’m waiting…
I love the way this comes together! All the flavors together work so well together, and it’s a really low effort appetizer that reaps a high reward, and looks SO impressive.
What ingredients do you need to make this steak crostini?
Hanger steak: We are using hanger steak for this recipe, I just love how tender it is and I feel it pairs really well on toast, but, you can also use any steak you have available like beef tenderloin, sirloin steak, filet mignon or a boneless ribeye steak. I would just recommend getting boneless.
Sourdough sliced baguette: Toasted baguette is the vessel for this recipe. I like the sour tang from the sourdough paired with the burrata and steak, but you can opt for any baguette that is your favorite.
Creamy burrata cheese: Creamy burrata, yes please! If you don’t want to use burrata, you can opt for mozzarella, or even a horseradish sauce would be great if you don’t want to put cheese.
Fresh herbs: We are using fresh chives, but fresh rosemary, fresh basil or thyme work as well.
Finishing spices: Kosher salt or sea salt, black pepper, garlic, olive oil, mushroom seasoning and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar.
Instructions to make this recipe
Preheat your oven
Begin by preheating your oven 350 degrees.
Season and cook your steak
Season your steak with salt and black pepper, char on all sides on medium-high heat (I’m using a cast iron skillet) and place in the oven for that final cook (more directions with the printable recipe below) for medium-rare.
Assemble your crostini
Slice and toast your baguette and assemble with your burrata, chives, and steak (I like mine medium rare, but you can cook however you prefer). Finish with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar, or balsamic glaze.
Tips, Tricks and Substitutions
BIG TIP for flavors on the bread: After removing from toasting, take your garlic clove and run it against the toast. This makes it super creamy + garlicky, it comes out super strong this way.
BIG TIP for cooking steak: Bring to complete room temperature: 45-1hour depending on the size of the steak. This allows an even sear with the cooking process, allows for a bigger char, and allows all those flavors to really come through.
I’m literally obsessed with this recipe, and it is going to be SO great and impressive for the holiday season.

Another great way to use burrata is with heirloom or cherry tomatoes, cherries, pasta, with pesto on a crostini, in an arugula salad, with roasted red pepper and peaches, too.

Burrata and Steak Crostini
- 1 pound hanger steak
- 1 sourdough baguette sliced in 1 inch pieces
- 8 oz burrata
- 1 tablespoon mushroom powder optional
- 2 garlic cloves
- olive oil to season
- salt and pepper to taste
- top with chives and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Bring your steak to room temperature, we are using hanger steak here, but ribeye will work just as well. Season with salt, pepper and your Spice Tribe Porcini Paradiso seasoning.
- Slice your bread in about 1/2 inch pieces - it should make around 20-24 slices. Place on a sheet tray and toast (about 5-10 minutes).
- In the meantime, heat a cast iron with a drizzle of oil until piping hot. Add your steak and sear for 2 minutes on all sides for medium rare. Transfer to the oven for another 1-2 minutes until your desired cook time. Remove from the oven and let rest for about 15 minutes. Thinly slice and set aside.
- Once your bread is toasted, take a garlic clove and spread it against the toast. Top with burrata, then your steak. Top with chives, flakey salt, pepper and balsamic vinegar. Serve!
What would you recommend using if hanger steak is not available? Flank?
Any other steak that is accessible to you will work just as great! Flank works!
What spice can I use as a sub to Spice Tribe? I can’t get it in time for Christmas 🙁
Any other mushroom spice will work great! Or you use any of your favorite spices, I’ll sometimes do garlic powder and paprika with salt and pepper. Totally up to you! Definitely recommend this Spice Tribe Porcino spice in general because it is SO good!
Where did you find the burrata at ? Or any suggestions where I can find it ? Thank you I’m advance .
Hi Alannah! Burrata should be at most grocery retailers as far as I’ve seen – Whole Foods, Ralphs, Vons, Trader Joes, etc! If you can’t find it, buffalo mozzarella will also work with this.
Thank you so much! These were a hit at Christmas. I used filet and found a mushroom umami at Target that went perfect. 100 stars
That sounds fantastic! I’m glad you enjoyed. Have a wonderful New Year!
Working on my holiday menus tonight. These look amazing!! Will definitely give them a try ????
Yay! This will be a hit!
What a delicious looking appetizer. Can’t wait to try this.
Thank you Mary, enjoy!
This was excellent, thank you!!
I’m planning to make it again for an upcoming party, would it still be good if I prepped and cooked the steak in advance? Do you have any suggestions?
Thanks so much for your review, Jen! If you want to prep the steak ahead of time, you can warm it/keep it warm in a low temp oven before you’re ready to assemble but it may not stay medium rare or as tender, but that is an alternative option!
Bland and underwhelming.
Looks delicious, can this be served at room temperature?
Yes! Can be served room temp. Just don’t let it sit out for more than 2 hours at room temp (for safety!) (or 1 hour above 90° F in the space) per USDA!
