Pilsner Steak Tips with Herbed-Pecan Orzo And Shiitake Mushroom Sauce

Serves 4

Sirloin Steak:
1 ½ pounds beef sirloin tips
1 cup Pilsner Beer
1 cup beef broth
2 TBLS Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp red hot pepper sauce
1 tsp Kosher salt
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper

Herbed-Pecan Orzo:
1 cup orzo pasta
1 tsp Kosher salt
2 TBLS butter
½ tsp freshly ground black pepper
2 TBLS rosemary, chopped
2 TBLS parsley, chopped
1 TBLS thyme, chopped
½ cup chopped pecans

Shiitake Mushroom Sauce:
1 TBLS olive oil
1 TBLS butter
1 shallot, peeled and finely chopped
2 cups shiitake mushrooms, stems removed and sliced
¼ cup Pilsner Beer
½ tsp Kosher salt
2 TBLS flour

Place sirloin tips in large zipper top plastic bag. Add to bag one cup of Pilsner Beer, beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, red pepper sauce, one teaspoon Kosher salt and one-half teaspoon of black pepper. Marinate in refrigerator or on counter top for at least 20 minutes.

Cook orzo according to package directions. Drain and toss with two tablespoons of butter, one teaspoon of Kosher salt and one-half teaspoon black pepper. Stir in rosemary, parsley, thyme and pecans. Cover with foil and set aside.

In large heavy skillet over medium high heat, warm olive oil. Remove sirloin tips from marinade, reserving marinade. Add meat to the pan and cook 3 – 4 minutes on each side, until lightly browned. Remove meat to plate and cover with foil to keep warm.

In same pan, melt butter. Add shallot slices and mushrooms; sauté two to three minutes or until just tender. Stir in one-fourth cup of Pilsner Beer and cook until beer is almost completely absorbed. Sprinkle one-half teaspoon of Kosher salt and flour over the mushrooms in the pan, stirring to coat. Pour in reserved marinade. Bring to a boil and cook for one minute, then reduce heat and cook, stirring frequently, for an additional five minutes or until liquid is reduced by one-half.

Return meat to the pan and cook an additional four to five minutes for medium rare, or until desired doneness.

Arrange Herbed-Pecan Orzo on serving platter. Fan sirloin tips over orzo and top with sauce to serve.
