- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 10 ounces beef tenderloin, thinly sliced and cut into strips
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 2 teaspoons unsalted butter

- Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Season beef tenderloin strips with salt and black pepper. Add beef to skillet and brown 1-2 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.
- Add 1 teaspoon butter to pan. Add the mushrooms and brown, stirring often until softened and browned, about 2-3 minutes. Transfer to plate with beef.
