Prepare the Ingredients
Cut mushrooms into ¼" slices.
Separate steak strips into a single layer and pat dry. Season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Coarsely chop.
Make and Bake the Puff Pastry Strips
Remove puff pastry from refrigerator. Remove paper, if necessary.
Cut pastry into four equally-sized strips. Top with 1 tsp. olive oil, half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for garnish) and a pinch of salt and pepper. Gently press cheese into pastry.
Holding a strip by the ends, gently twist and press ends into prepared baking sheet. Repeat with remaining strips, keeping 1" space between strips.
Bake in hot oven until pastry puffs and cheese melts, 8-10 minutes.
While puff pastry bakes, start stew.
Start the Stew
Add root vegetable medley to hot pan. Stir often until lightly browned, 3-5 minutes.
Add ¼ cup water. Cover, and cook until water is mostly evaporated and vegetables are tender, 2-3 minutes.
Stir in mushrooms, ½ tsp. salt, and ¼ tsp. pepper until mushrooms are coated. Then stir occasionally until mushrooms are lightly browned and tender, 3-5 minutes.
Brown the Steak Strips
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Let heat, 5 minutes.
Add steak strips to very hot pan and cook undisturbed, 2 minutes.
Remove steak strips to a plate. Keep pan over medium-high heat.
Finish the Stew
Add flour to hot pan and stir until no dry flour remains in pan.
Add 1½ cups water and bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir in demi-glace, steak strips, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally until no pink remains on steak strips and steak strips reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 2-3 minutes.
Stir in truffle oil (to taste). Remove from burner. Rest, 3 minutes.
