Comfort food. That's what this is to me. Noodles. Savory Gravy. Mmmm.
Begin by sauteing 1/2 lb. of mushrooms and a medium onion, thinly sliced, in 2 teaspoons of olive or canola oil.
Meanwhile, thinly slice 1 lb. of boneless beef sirloin. As you can see, mine is not boneless. I work with what I have. It you've been reading long you know that my beef is from "back home" and it's free. FREE! Can't beat that. Beggars can't be choosers, right? And honestly, there is pride in knowing where this beef came from. So anyway, trim off the fat (and the bone, if needed) and slice it up.
Then remove the onion and mushrooms from the skillet and keep them warm.
Now toss that beef into the same skillet that you cooked the onion and mushroom and cook until no longer pink. I gave mine a good salt and pepper too.
This next step ain't pretty, nor is it gourmet. Oh well. Add a can of low fat cream of mushroom soup, fat free milk, and 2 tablespoons of Dijon mustard.
Cook the mixture, stirring occasionally until it thickens.
Now serve it over egg noodles or rice and be happy. : )
