IngredientsMeasures
Linguini 4 ounces
Olive oil2 teaspoons + 1 tablespoon
Top-loin strip steak ½ pound
Salt ¼ + ¼ teaspoon
Freshly ground black pepper to taste
Garlic clove, thinly sliced 1
Wild mushrooms (eg, crimini or shiitake), cleaned and sliced 6 ounces
Low-sodium beef broth 8 ounces
2 teaspoons cornstarch mixed with 4 teaspoons water
  1. Directions
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and oil. Drain and set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle ¼ teaspoon salt and pepper to taste over beef, and then add to the skillet; cook for about 1 minute on each side, until nicely browned. Transfer to a plate.

  6. Return beef to pan and cook for about 3-5 minutes per side, depending on desired degree of doneness.
