Add broth, cream, Worcestershire sauce, and bay leaf; mix to combine and bring to a simmer. Cook until reduced, about 6 minutes. Return beef to skillet; cook over medium-low heat until sauce is thick and creamy, 8–10 minutes (see notes). Taste and adjust season with salt and pepper, if necessary. Turn off the heat and whisk in sour cream and mustard; mix until well combined.
