  5. Heat 1 tbsp of the oil and the butter in a large skillet (not a non-stick) over medium high heat.

  7. Transfer to a bowl.
  8. Season the beef strips generously with kosher salt and pepper and dredge in the flour.

  21. Bring to a simmer while stirring.
  22. Cook just until the sauce thickens slightly, 1- 2 minutes.

  24. Taste, and adjust seasonings.
  25. Serve over cooked noodles, sprinkled with parsley.
