Ingredients and Preparation

Ingredients Measures
Linguini 4 ounces
Olive oil 2 teaspoons + 1 tablespoon
Top-loin strip steak ½ pound
Salt ¼ + ¼ teaspoon
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Garlic clove, thinly sliced 1
Wild mushrooms (eg, crimini or shiitake), cleaned and sliced 6 ounces
Low-sodium beef broth 8 ounces
2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with 4 teaspoons water
Directions
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and oil. Drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper to taste over beef, and then add to the skillet; cook for about 1 minute on each side, until nicely browned. Transfer to a plate.
  3. Reduce heat to medium and add the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil to the skillet. Add garlic and cook until just fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add mushrooms and sprinkle with ¼ teaspoon of salt. Sauté for 2-3 minutes, until mushrooms are soft.
  4. Increase heat to medium-high and add the broth and cornstarch mixture. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat and simmer for 1-2 minutes.
  5. Return beef to pan and cook for about 3-5 minutes per side, depending on desired degree of doneness.
  6. Slice beef and serve with mushroom sauce over the pasta.
