  1. Soak the porcini mushrooms in 11/4 cups boiling water for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over low heat. Add the onion, and sweat gently for 5 minutes until soft. Season with sea salt and pepper.
  3. Drain the mushrooms (reserve the liquid), and add to the onion, along with the beef. Pour the mushroom soaking liquid through a fine nylon sieve, and add to the pan with about half of the stock. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Add the cream and hot red pepper flakes, and simmer gently for about 20 minutes, adding more of the stock as needed.
  4. Taste and adjust the seasoning as needed, and serve hot with some fluffy white rice or noodles.
