  • 1 pound piece beef tenderloin or top sirloin, trimmed, sliced ¼- thick, and cut into 1-inch pieces. See Gr8 Tip
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 - 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • ½ cup minced shallots or onions
  • ¾ pound cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup beef stock or store-bought broth
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Dash ground red pepper
  • ½ cup sour cream, at room temperature
  • ½ - 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • Buttered wide egg noodles, mashed potatoes or rice, for serving
  • Chopped fresh dill or minced fresh parsley, for garnish


  • Dry all surface moisture from steak strips with paper towels and season with salt and pepper.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon butter and 1 tablespoon oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat.
  • Add beef in 2 batches and cook, turning once, until browned on both sides but still pink inside, about 1 minute.
  • With a slotted spoon, transfer to a plate.
  • Reduce heat to medium and add remaining butter and oil.
  • Sauté shallots or onions with mushrooms until translucent and tender, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Transfer to the plate with the steak, leaving as much butter and oil in the skillet as possible.
  • If necessary, add butter to make about 2 tablespoons, then blend in flour and cook until frothy, stirring.
  • Add beef stock in a slow stream, whisking constantly, for 2 minutes to make a roux.
  • Add Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper to taste and red pepper. Simmer and stir until thickened and smooth.
  • Add beef, onions or shallots and mushrooms to sauce and heat through.
  • Remove from heat and blend in sour cream and mustard.
  • Warm to serving temperature and serve over noodles, rice, or mashed potatoes.
  • Garnish with dill or parsley.


Gr8 Tips: 
  • You can substitute ground beef for beef strips and yogurt for sour cream.
  • It helps to cut thin strips of the beef by first putting the meat in the freezer for at least 20 minutes.
