Tiras de carne - Beef tips with mushroom and Onion sauce

Another simple but delicious Portuguese recipe.

The key word here is simple because with the addition of a mushroom and onion soup mix, you create a gorgeous looking meal with a thick gravy that is perfect for drizzling over rice or mashed potatoes.


Tiras de Carne com molho de cogumelos e cebola
{Beef tips with mushroom and onion sauce}

1 lb beef strips (sometimes I use leftover steak that I slice into strips)
1 garlic clove, smashed
olive oil
1 packet of mushroom and onion gravy
2 tbsp flour
2 cups of water

In a big skillet, add a bit of olive oil, about 2 tablespoons, and fry the garlic for a minute or two, don't let it burn. 


Add the steak strips and cook until brown and done. Add in the packet of mushroom and onion gravy.


Sprinkle on the flour and give it a good stir so all the meat is covered.  Then pour in the water, stir well and cook for a few minutes until the sauce thickens.


You can sprinkle on some fresh cut parsley if you wish.  Serve immediately.
