By: Chef Lee Hilson
• 1 1/2 pounds beef tenderloin, sliced into thin 2-inch-long strips
• 2 finely chopped onions
• 4 ounces butter

• 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
• 1/2 cup beef stock
• Pinch dry mustard
• 1 tablespoon tomato paste

1. Season meat strips with salt and pepper. Saute onion in butter until translucent. Add mushrooms and saute about 2 minutes or until collapsed. Add meat and saute for 5 minutes. Stir in flour.
2. Mix stock with mustard and tomato paste and pour into the pan. Bring to a boil and simmer on low for no more than 15 minutes (or until beef is to your liking).
