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.
1 lb beef strips (sometimes I use leftover steak that I slice into strips)
1 garlic clove, smashed
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.
