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

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.

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.
