Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter or ghee
  • 2 pounds sirloin steak cut into cubes (you can also use beef stew meat)
  • 1/2 diced onion
  • 6 ounces white mushrooms sliced
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups beef broth
  • 6 ounces cream cheese cubed
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 4 ounces sour cream

Instructions

  • Heat butter or ghee to medium-high heat in a large skillet.
  • Season the steak with salt and pepper.
  • Add the meat to the pan, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, until browned. Remove from the pan and allow to rest.
  • Add the onion, mushrooms, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper to the pan. Cook for 5 minutes, until the onion has softened.
  • Reduce heat to medium.
  • Add broth, cream cheese, coconut aminos, and Dijon mustard and cook for 5 to 8 minutes, until thickened. Whisk as needed to help the cream cheese melt.
  • Return the beef to the pan, and simmer for 5 more minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in sour cream.

Notes

Variations
  • Add in 1 tablespoon of cooking sherry.
  • For a richer dish, add 1/3 cup heavy cream when you add the broth
  • Add 1/2 teaspoon lemon juice when you add the sour cream for a bright pop of flavor.
  • Add 2 tablespoons coconut aminos.
  • I think that the sauce is thick enough as is, but if you prefer a thicker sauce you can add in 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon of xanthan gum. I recommend adding 1/4 teaspoon at a time, because it is very easy to over-do it with xanthan gum.
