How good does this sound? Steak Tips with Peppered Mushroom Gravy. Cooking Light has delicious and healthy recipes for when you need some comfort food.

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups uncooked egg noodles
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 pound top sirloin steak, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped shallots
  • 1 (8-ounce) package presliced baby bella mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 tablespoon lower-sodium soy sauce
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups fat-free, lower-sodium beef broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (optional)
 Preparation:

1. Cook noodles according to package directions, omitting salt and fat; drain.
2. While noodles cook, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add steak; sauté 5 minutes, browning on all sides. Remove from pan; cover.
3. Melt butter in pan over medium-high heat. Add shallots and mushrooms; sauté 4 minutes. Add garlic; sauté 30 seconds. Stir in soy sauce. Sprinkle flour over mushroom mixture; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually add broth, stirring constantly. Add pepper, salt, and thyme sprigs. Bring to a boil; cook 2 minutes or until thickened. Return beef to pan; cook 1 minute or until thoroughly heated. Discard thyme sprigs. Garnish with thyme leaves, if desired.
Note: Briefly cooking the gravy with thyme sprigs saves the time of stripping the tiny leaves from the stem, but still gives you the herb's woodsy flavor.
