First, slice the sirloin into strips. Then season it with salt & pepper.

Heat the olive oil and 1 tbsp. butter in a heavy skillet over medium high heat. Lay the steak strips down in a single layer. Flip after 1 minute and sear them for another 2 minutes. Transfer the steak to another plate.

Add 2 tbsp. butter and cook the onions until they become translucent about 2-4 minutes. Then add the mushrooms and some salt. Cook for about 5 minutes. Then add the garlic and cook until it is fragrant.

Deglaze the pan by adding the brandy. Scrape off the browned bits. Let this cook for 2-4 minutes.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the beef broth, soy sauce, mustard and cornstarch. Wait until smooth then set aside.

Add the broth mix into the skillet. Stir until combined. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes.

When it has thickened, add the sour cream until everything is nice and combined.

Finally, return the steak to the hot pan and cook 2 minutes.

Serve the steak and sauce over cooked and buttered egg noodles.

When you get to taste this, you’ll enjoy the tang from the mustard. It gives it a delicious kick that adds depth to the flavor.
