In a hot saute pan, add the extra virgin olive oil. Season the beef with salt
and pepper and add it to the oil. Brown the steak, about 2 minutes per side. Add
the mushrooms and the onions, and season with salt and pepper. Remove the pan

    Bupu, you have been a good and true friend to me. You saved my life and the lives of those I care about. Now you will do one last thing for me, little one. Go back. I must travel roads that will be dark and dangerous before the end of my long journey. I can not ask you to go with me.
