    2 tablespoons olive oil
    1 1/2 pounds top sirloin steak, diced
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    1 medium sweet onion, diced
    3 medium carrots, peeled and diced
    2 celery ribs, diced
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    2 cups sliced mushrooms
    1/3 cup dry red or white wine

Heat olive oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium heat. Season steak with salt and pepper, to taste. Add to the stockpot and cook, stirring occasionally, until evenly browned, about 6-8 minutes; set aside. Add onion, carrots and celery. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and mushrooms, and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and browned, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in wine, scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the stockpot.
