  • 3 pounds beef sirloin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • canola oil
  • 1 can (8 ounces) whole mushrooms, drained
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup table cream


  • Cut the beef across the grain into 1/4-inch thick slices.
  • In a bowl, season beef with salt and pepper to taste.
  • In a wide pan over medium-high heat, heat about 1 tablespoon oil. Add mushrooms and cook for about 30 seconds. Remove from pan and keep warm. 
  • Add another tablespoon of oil to the pan if needed. Add beef in a single layer and sear for about 2 to 3 minutes per side or until lightly browned. Do not overcrowd pan, cook beef in batches as needed. Remove meat from the pan and keep warm.
  • In the pan, add the butter.
  • When melted, add onions and garlic and cook until softened.
  • Add flour and continue to cook, stirring regularly, for about 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Gradually add broth, whisking regularly to prevent lumps.
  • Add beef. Bring to a boil, skimming scum that floats on top. Lower heat, cover, and simmer for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours or until meat is fork-tender. Add more broth or water in 1/2 cup increments if the liquid is getting too thick before the meat is fully tender.
  • Add all-purpose cream and stir to distribute. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Add mushrooms. Continue to cook for another 1 to 2 minutes or until mushrooms are heated through. Serve hot.



  • For a more tender chew, slice the beef across the grain. You can freeze the meat for about 20 minutes or until partially firm to make slicing easier.
  • For extra depth of flavor, use condensed cream of mushroom soup. Reconstitute a 10-ounce can with the beef broth and omit the cream.
