This was dinner last night – and it was delicious! I used sirloin steak – this will be even better if you use beef tenderloin. It takes a little time to prepare, but honestly – the effort is well worth it. And really – as much as Sunday dinner may traditionally be the ones you take more time to prepare and Monday is usually reserved for leftovers – making this fresh for Monday dinner really starts the week off well!
- 2-3 lbs. of sirloin steak (you can use beef tenderloin – it works great)
- 1 small onion
- 2 garlic cloves – smashed
- 2 cups of mini button mushrooms
- 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 2 cups of fresh baby carrots
- 1-1/2 cups of pearl onions (sweet pickled)
- 4 tablespoons of butter
- 1 cup of sour cream
- ½ lb. of bacon, cut into ½ inch pieces
- Salt and freshly ground pepper
- 2 cups of beef broth
- Heat olive oil in a pan, add beef, cut into strips about 2 inches long and ¼ thick
- Add finely chopped small onions and smashed garlic and season with salt and fresh ground black pepper
- Brown all pieces of meat evenly
- Add mushrooms and carrots and sauté for about 5 minutes
- In a separate pan, melt butter and add pearl onions
- Saute onions until they start turning golden brown
- Add pearl onions to meat mixture
- In a separate pan, cook bacon pieces until crisp – drain fat
- Add to the meat mixture along with beef broth and mix well
- Place mixture into a covered glass dish and place into oven, preheated to 350F
- Cook in the oven for 1 – 1-1/2 hours – check meat for tenderness before removing from oven
- Just before serving, spoon in sour cream and mix well
- Serve with rice or over pasta
