- 1 sirloin roast (top sirloin) 2 inches (5 cm) thick (about 3 lb/1.5 kg)
- 1 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
- 12 oz shitake mushrooms
- 12 oz shitake crimini mushrooms
- 1 1/4 cup beef stock (approx)
- 1 onion finely chopped
- 4 cloves garlic minced
- 3/4 teaspoons dried thyme
- 3/4 cups red wine
- 1 1/2 teaspoon balsamic vinegar
- 1 1/2 teaspoon red wine vinegar
- 2 tablespoons butter cubed
Trim all but 1/4 inch (5 mm) of fat from roast; wrap kitchen string around edge and tie tightly to hold shape. Rub roast with 1 tsp (5 mL) of the pepper. In large ovenproof skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; brown roast on both sides. Drain off any fat. Roast in 375°F (190°C) oven, turning once, for 45 minutes or until meat thermometer registers 140°F (60°C) for rare or until desired doneness. Transfer to cutting board; tent with foil and let stand for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, remove woody stem from mushrooms; slice caps. Strain pan juices into measuring cup; skim off any fat. Add enough of the beef stock to make 1-1/2 cups (375 mL). Set aside.
Return skillet to medium heat. Add onion, garlic and thyme; cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until softened. Add mushrooms; cook, stirring, for about 8 minutes or until browned. Pour in stock mixture, wine, balsamic vinegar and remaining pepper; bring to boil, stirring to scrape up brown bits from bottom of pan. Boil for about 5 minutes or until slightly thickened and spoon scraped across bottom of skillet leaves trail that fills in slowly. Remove from heat; stir in butter until melted and sauce is glossy. Slice roast thinly; serve with sauce.
