400 g beef, top sirloin, cut into 1x5 cm strips    
3 tbsp cornstarch   24 g
2 tbsp canola oil   30 mL
1 onions, finely chopped   200 g
2 tbsp margarine non-hydrogenated   28 g
1 cup beef broth   250 mL
16 button (white) mushrooms, thinly sliced crosswise   220 g
2 tbsp tomato paste   30 mL
1/4 cup creamy soy preparation for cooking   65 mL
10 drops Tabasco sauce   0.63 mL
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Cut the meat into 1 X 5 cm strips, then coat them with flour.
  2. Heat the oil in a frying pan over medium heat. Sauté the finely chopped onion a few minutes until traslucent, then take it out of the pan and set aside on a small plate.
  3. Turn the heat up high, add the margarine, and brown the pieces of meat in the same pan, until nicely colured, about 5 min. For large quantities, avoid crowding the meat in the pan and work in batches. Add the warm broth to deglaze the pan. Put the onion back in and season with salt and pepper. Start cooking gently, covered, for about 20-25 min.
  4. Add the thinly sliced mushrooms, then continue to cook an additional 10 min.
  5. In a small bowl, mix the tomato paste with the soy preparation and Tabasco sauce. Add to the pan and cook over very low heat 3-5 min. Serve on the warmed plates.
