Hands-on time: 20 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes


  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 12 oz top sirloin steak, trimmed of visible fat and thinly sliced against the grain
  • 1/3 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tbsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tbsp sherry, optional
  • 2 tbsp tapioca flour
  • Olive oil cooking spray
  • 4 cups trimmed oyster mushrooms, broken into rough pieces
