 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1      pound         beef top sirloin, boneless -- cut 3/4 inch thick
    2      tablespoons   Italian parsley -- chopped
    2      cloves        garlic -- crushed
      1/2  teaspoon      pepper
    1      large         red onion
    1      tablespoon    olive oil
                         salt -- optional
      1/4  cup           dry red wine
    1 1/2  pounds        new potatoes -- steamed
 
      Trim fat from beef steak. Cut steak lengthwise in half and then crosswise 
 into 1/2-inch
      thick strips. In a medium bowl, combine beef, parsley, garlic and pepper; 
 toss to coat.
      Set aside. 
 
      Cut onion into 1/4-inch thick slices; separate into rings. In a large nons
 tick skillet, heat
      oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add onion, then cook and stir 3 to 5 
 minutes or
      until crisp-tender. Remove to serving platter; keep warm. 
 
      In same skillet, add beef and stir-fry 2 minutes or until outside surface 
 is no longer
      pink. Season with salt, if desired. Place beef on top of onion. 
 
      Add wine to skillet; cook and stir until browned bits attached to surface 
 are dissolved
      and liquid thickens slightly. Pour sauce over beef. Serve with potatoes.
 
      Cook’s notes:
 
      In France, bistro cooking is casual, home-style food bursting with hearty 
 flavors. Steak
      and steamed new potatoes with a red wine sauce brings bistro fare to your 
 table.
 
      To steam new potatoes, place steamer basket in 1/2 inch of water (water sh
 ould not
      touch bottom of basket). Place 10 to 12 new potatoes (about 1 1/2 pounds) 
 in
      basket. Cover tightly and heat to boiling; reduce heat. Steam 18 to 22 min
 utes or until
      tender.
