**Prep Time:** 15 minutes 

**Cook Time:** 20 minutes 

**Servings:** 4

**Ingredients:**

– 3 tablespoons butter

– 1/2 pound mushrooms, cleaned and sliced

– 1/2 cup finely chopped onion

– 2 cloves garlic, minced

– 1 pound beef tenderloin, sliced into bite-size strips

– 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided

– 1/4 teaspoon salt

– 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper

– 2 tablespoons olive oil

– 1/3 cup good quality red wine

– 1 14-ounce can of beef broth

– 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

**Instructions:**

1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, melt the butter. Sauté the mushrooms until they achieve a light golden brown color. Remove the mushrooms from the pan and set aside.

2. Add the onions to the skillet and cook until softened, about 3-5 minutes. Reduce the heat to low, add garlic, and return the mushrooms to the pan; sauté for an additional 30-60 seconds until the garlic becomes fragrant. Remove the mixture from the skillet and set aside.

3. In a large bowl, combine the slices of steak, 2 tablespoons of flour, salt, and pepper. Stir to coat the steak slices evenly.

4. Heat the olive oil in the skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steak and cook until browned; then, remove from the skillet and set aside.

5. Reduce the heat to low and deglaze the skillet with red wine, scraping up the brown bits from the bottom. Pour 1/2 cup of beef broth into a bowl and set aside. Add the remaining beef broth and Worcestershire sauce to the skillet. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

6. In a small bowl, whisk together the reserved 1/2 cup of beef broth and 1/4 cup flour. Whisk this flour mixture into the skillet with the wine and beef broth mixture. Cook for 2 minutes until slightly thickened.
