  • 1 1/2 lb thick sirloin steak cut in large chunks
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms optional
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tbs finely chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup Madeira wine Marsala may also be used
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 recipe Herb Sauteed Potatoes


  • Melt butter and oil over high heat. Pat meat dry and brown meat on all sides; remove to a plate and cover to keep warm.
  • If using mushrooms, add them to the same skillet and cook until they are beginning to brown; remove them to the plate with the meat so they stay warm.
  • In the same skillet, add the onion and cook for about a minute to soften. Deglaze the pan with the wine, letting it reduce a bit--maybe 25%. Then add the cream and cook until slightly thickened.
  • Add the meat, the sautéed potatoes and mushrooms (if using) back to the pan. Stir to combine and heat through.
