Beef and noodles
This hearty beef and noodles dinner features tender chunks of sirloin steak smothered in a luxurious brown gravy and placed on top a bed of egg noodles.
- 1.5 pounds sirloin steak (cut into 1" chunks)
- 2 tablespoons cooking oil
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1/4 cup butter
- 2 cups beef broth
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 teaspoon soy sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper to taste
- 5 leaves fresh sage
- salt to taste
- 12 ounces egg noodles
While preparing gravy and searing sirloin, prepare the noodles according to package instructions.
Add cooking oil to a large skillet set over medium high heat and sear sirloin chunks until well browned and beginning to char slightly. Remove from heat and set aside.
In a medium sauce pan melt the butter over low heat and sprinkle in flour to form a roux. Mix continually to prevent the roux from burning and begins to turn nutty in color, approximately 3 minutes. Slowly dribble in beef broth while continuing to stir, ensuring it fully incorporates before additional liquid is added. Continue to add liquid until all beef broth, Worcestershire, and soy sauce has been added. Add fresh ground pepper and sage leaves to the gravy and let gently simmer for 10 minutes, or until it has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon. The sage leaves can be removed.
Once the gravy has thickened to your liking, taste for salt and adjust if needed. Add sirloin chunks to the gravy and stir to combine.
Serve by placing a bed of egg noodles on a plate and top generously with sirloin chunks and gravy.
Tip: Deglazing the searing skillet with a couple splashes of beef broth and pouring that into the gravy while it simmers will add additional flavor.
