Servings 6 people


  • 1 pound beef flank steak trimmed and cut across the grain (diagonally) into strips
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/4 teaspoon olive oil
  • 3 cups sliced onion
  • 16 ounces mushrooms sliced
  • 1 cup low sodium beef broth
  • Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped fresh parsley
  • Paprika to taste
  • 10 cups chopped spinach


  • In a large bowl, combine beef strips and cornstarch; toss well.
  • Heat the oil in a skillet with a tight-fitting lid over medium-high heat; add steak strips and sauté for 5 minutes; add onion and sauté for 1 minute. Add mushrooms.
