Winter is a time to ditch the cold salads and opt for something hearty yet healthy. Slurping on soups, casseroles, and oven bakes is heart-warming. Here are two dishes that will help to keep you warm this winter. 

  • 1 lb top sirloin steak thinly sliced into strips
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil 
  • 2 Tbsp butter 
  • 1/2 medium onion finely chopped 
  • 1/2 lb brown mushrooms thickly sliced 
  • 1 garlic cloves minced 
  • 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup beef broth 
  • 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream 
  • 1/4 cup sour cream 
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce 
  • 1/2 tsp mustard 
  • 1/2 tsp salt 
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper 
1. Place a large deep pan oven over medium-high heat and add oil. 
Once oil is very hot, add thinly sliced beef strips in a single layer and cook for 1 minute per side without stirring. 
Cook until until just browned and no longer red. 
Sear beef in 2 batches so you don’t overcrowd the pan. 
Remove beef to a plate and cover to keep warm. 
2. Add 2 Tbsp butter, chopped onion and sliced mushrooms. 
Sautee 6-8 minutes or until liquid has evaporated and onions and mushrooms are soft and lightly browned. 
3. Add 1 minced garlic clove and sautee 1 minute until fragrant. Add 1 Tbsp flour and sautee another minute stirring constantly. 
4. Pour in 1 cups beef broth, scraping any bits from the bottom of the pan then add 3/4 cup whipping cream and simmer another 1 to 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir a few Tablespoons of the sauce into 1/4 cup of sour cream to temper it so the sour cream doesn’t curdle then add it to the pan while stirring constantly.Stir in 1 Tbsp Worcestershire, 1/2 tsp dijon mustard, and season with 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper, or season to taste and continue simmering until sauce is creamy. Add beef with any accumulated juices back to the pan and bring just to a simmer or until beef is heated through.
