Bistro Beef Steak
Quickly stir-fried strips of tender beef steak are served atop sautéed onions and drizzled with a simple red wine pan sauce. If you like mushrooms and bell peppers, sauté some with the onion for added flavor, color and texture. Complete this simple, yet elegant dish with steamed red potatoes.
1 pound boneless beef top sirloin steak, cut 3/4-inch thick
2 tablespoons chopped fresh Italian parsley leaves
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 large red onion
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 cup dry red wine
1 1/2 pounds new potatoes, steamed
- Cut steak in half lengthwise and then crosswise into 1/2-inch thick strips. In medium bowl, combine beef, parsley, garlic and pepper; toss to coat. Set aside.
