Recipe by PanNan
READY IN: 50mins




  • Combine the beef broth and dried porcini in a small saucepan.
  • Bring to a boil, remove from heat, cover, and let steep for 30 minutes.
  • With a slotted spoon, lift the porcini out of the broth, chop coarsely and set aside.
  • Strain the broth through a sieve and set aside.
  • Heat 1 tbsp of the oil and the butter in a large skillet (not a non-stick) over medium high heat.
  • When the oil is hot, add the cremini mushrooms and saute, stirring often until they are browned, 5- 6 minutes.
  • Transfer to a bowl.
  • Season the beef strips generously with kosher salt and pepper and dredge in the flour.
  • Add 2 tbsp oil to the pan and heat over medium-high heat.
  • When oil is hot, add the beef, spreading it in a single layer.
  • After about a minute, turn each piece to brown the other side.
  • Don't overcook!
  • Work quickly, the whole process only takes a couple of minutes.
  • Remove beef to the same bowl with the cremini.
  • (Work in smaller batches, if you prefer).
  • Melt the remaining 3 tbsp butter in the pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add the onion.
  • Saute, scraping up the browned meat bits at the bottom of the pan.
  • When the onions just start to brown (about 4- 5 min), pour in the reserved porcini soaking broth.
  • Stir in the mustard, Worcestershire sauce, porcini, cremini and beef, along with any accumulated juices.
  • Bring to a simmer while stirring.
  • Cook just until the sauce thickens slightly, 1- 2 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to low and stir in the creme fraiche, just until it's incorporated and heated through.
  • Taste, and adjust seasonings.
  • Serve over cooked noodles, sprinkled with parsley.
