How to make your beef tender like takeout beef?
I’m betting that when you order takeout, the beef is the most tender and softest meat you have ever eaten? They are not using the best and most expensive beef to get this super tender meat. They are using a cheaper cut and making it tender themselves! And it is a trick you can use at home!
The process is called velveting, and it makes the meat very soft and tender, almost like velvet.
There are a couple of ways to do this, but the easiest, and my favorite way, is to use baking soda.
Baking Soda is also called Bicarb, Bicarbonate of Soda, or Sodium Bicarbonate.
It is the white powder that you often use in baking. BUT don’t get it muddled with baking powder, that won’t tenderize your meat and will make everything slimy.
To tenderize your beef, you sprinkle it with baking soda, stir to coat and then let it sit for 15 minutes. Then really rinse the beef well under cold running water. You want to remove every trace of baking soda.
After that, pat the beef dry, and you are ready to start.
Beef with mushroom recipes.
1. Beef in Creamy Mushroom Sauce.
Beef in Creamy Mushroom Sauce with fork-tender beef and a delectable mushroom gravy that’s delicious over steamed rice, mashed potatoes, or egg noodles. Easy to make and cooks in one pan!
The recipe starts with dredging the beef cubes in seasoned flour and then pan-searing until lightly browned. The meat is then simmered in a thickened broth until fork-tender and the sauce is finished off with a generous addition of table cream for an extra dose of yum.
2. Easy Stir-Fried Beef With Mushrooms and Butter Recipe.
It may not be traditional in the strictest sense of the word, but the combination of soy sauce and butter is quickly becoming a favorite both in Asia and here at home. One of my favorite ways to combine them? In a stir-fry, like this simple recipe with marinated flank steak, stir-fried with mushrooms.
Why this recipe works:
- Butter and soy sauce are a great combination that brings out the meaty richness of the meat while emulsifying into a creamy sauce.
- Cooking the meat first, then removing it from the wok while the mushroom liquid reduces ensures that everything ends up perfectly cooked at the same time.
3. Beef and Mushroom Stir Fry.
These past couple of weeks, I have been going back to my roots in terms of cooking. I have been trying recipes that combined what I have learned from my mom and dad. This stir-fried beef with mushrooms recipe is a product of those experiments. I used sirloin beef and mushroom because they are my family’s favorites and they only take minutes to cook. Marinating the strips of beef in lemon juice and soy sauce is my mom’s way of marinating any meat.
Pork chops, chicken legs, and liver are some of the few that she uses this marinade for. Flavoring the stir-fry with oyster sauce, on the other hand, is my dad’s influence. I always love my dad’s version of adobo with oyster sauce. I have cooked it many times for my family and it has since become one of our favorites. This sirloin beef with mushrooms is another favorite. The beef was so tender and tasty and goes well with the mushroom. Together they taste great!
4. Savory Beef With Onions and Mushrooms.

BEEF, MUSHROOMS, OR BOTH!
I used half ground beef and half mushrooms to stretch my pennies a bit further, but you could do all mushrooms or all beef if you prefer.
If you’re doing a vegetarian version with all mushrooms, use mushroom or vegetable broth to replace the beef broth.
TIPS FOR “ONE POT” SUCCESS
One-pot recipes can be a bit tricky for some, so here are some pointers:
- Use heavy, thick cookware to make sure the ingredients heat evenly.
- Make sure the liquid is simmering the whole time the pasta is cooking. If the heat is too low, the pasta will just get gummy.
- Stir the pot to prevent sticking, but not too often or your risk breaking down the pasta.
- Use your judgment. If your pasta looks close to being cooked through, but there is too much liquid left in the skillet, let it finish simmering with the lid off. If the liquid is gone but your pasta is still not tender, add a splash more and continue to simmer.

Can this Beef Roast be made ahead?
Yes! You can either cook it all the way until the last step, then let it cool and refrigerate until ready to use; then cover with foil and reheat in the oven at 350F until heated through. Add some beef stock if there’s no liquid at the bottom, to help with preventing the drying out of the beef roast.
Or, you can keep everything cut up and ready to go when you’re ready to cook. Just toss the meat with seasoning and carrots, then cover with foil and refrigerate. Cut the mushrooms and onions separately, cover, and refrigerate until ready to cook.
