In this recipe I’m using beef fillet. You can also use sirloin or prime rib as long as it is well aged, meaning that 10-15 days should have gone by in the meat market before you buy it!
- Cut the meat into 1 cm slices.
- Place a 30 cm nonstick pan over heat and let it get hot without adding any oil.
- Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil to the meat and season with salt and pepper.
- When the pan is very hot, add the meat and sear for 2 minutes on both sides, until golden.
- In the meantime, thinly slice the onion and quarter the mushrooms if large or cut them in half if smaller.
- Remove the meat from the pan and set aside.
- To the same pan, add 1 tablespoon olive oil, the onions and mushrooms.
- Sauté for 3-4 minutes, until the mushrooms shrink in size.
- Add the sugar, mustard, tomato paste and flour.
- Stir with a wooden spoon until all of the ingredients are completely combined.
- Add the wine and stir, then add the bouillon cube and last add the water.
- Lower heat to low and cook for 7-8 minutes.
- Fill a pot with water and bring to a boil.
- Add salt and the pasta. Boil for 8 minutes.
- When ready, drain and set aside.
- Place the pot back over heat, add the butter and wait until it starts to sizzle.
- Add the meat to the pan, let the sauce come to a boil and add the thyme.
- Add the pasta to the pot with the butter, turn off heat and toss to coat the pasta with the butter.
- Remove pan with sauce from heat and add the yogurt. Stir well and add the parsley. (The yogurt is added at the end so that it doesn’t split.)
- Serve pasta with sauce and add your choice of herbs.
