Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Red wine — Use a dry red wine, such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot, for the best flavor.
  • Dijon mustard — If you don't have Dijon mustard, you can use whole grain mustard or regular yellow mustard instead.
  • Beef sirloin — Make sure to slice the beef thinly against the grain for the most tender results.

Tips & Tricks

  • For a spicier version, add some red pepper flakes to the marinade.
  • Serve with a side of French fries or roasted potatoes.
  • You can also use chicken or pork instead of beef.
