Beef Stroganoff 2 Print Email

Do not overcook the meat - it will toughen.

1 1/4 pounds sirloin steak, cut into 2" x 1" x 1/2" strips
salt and pepper
2 tablespoons canola oil
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup finely chopped Spanish onion
1 cup small white mushrooms
1/4 cup dry red wine
1 cup reduced sodium beef broth or 3 tablespoons demi-glace mixed with 3/4 cup water
1/4 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard

1. Heat oven to warm setting. Sprinkle meat with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Brown meat in batches, about 1 minute per side. Transfer to a platter and place in oven.

2. Melt butter in skillet; add onion and cook 3 minutes, until softened. Add mushrooms. Cook 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mushroom liquid evaporates. Add wine; cook 5 minutes. Stir in beef broth and cook 10 minutes, until mushrooms are coated with a thick sauce.

3. Stir in sour cream and mustard. Add meat and accumulated juices. Reduce heat to low and cook 2-3 minutes, until meat is heated through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve with wide egg noodles (diCecco recommended) or a wild and brown rice medley.
