Uncle David's Special Beef Stroganoff Recipe
Healthy, hearty and nutritious.
Beef stroganoff is wonderful Russian dish that originated in the Tsar’s royal kitchen in the 19th century. Often confused with “beef tips and noodles,” the poor man’s version of this dish, stroganoff is indeed a meal fit for a king.
- 2 lb beef (visit Jimmy the Butcher at Cut Rite for some sirloin, round or a higher grade steak to your taste)
- 20 medium sized mushrooms (some sliced, some whole)
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 bag broad egg noodles
- 2/3 cup sour cream
- 1/3 cup red wine (optional)
- Stroganoff sauce mix
OR (make your own sauce):
- 1 can beef broth
- 4 tbsp all purpose flour
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp mustard
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp Thyme
Cut meat into thin strips about one-half inch in width and 2-3 inches in length;
Place meat in skillet with temperature on high until meat is well-browned on all sides;
Pour in 2 cups of water and reduce temperature to low, place lid on skillet;
Place cut mushrooms in a second skillet with olive oil and sauté gently for about 10 minutes;
Combine mushrooms in skillet with beef and let simmer for at least 30 minutes (a full 60 minutes for less tender cuts of meat);
If using prepared mix, after simmering meat, pour in sauce mixture and stir until consistency of sauce is no longer watery, add sour cream to taste. If making your own, put beef broth, flour, mustard, pepper in Thyme in a separate sauce pan and heat until thickened and again add sour cream.
Add red wine (optional) and stir.
Boil about half a pot of water and add about ¾ of a bag of egg noodles. Pour noodles into strainer when noodles are limp. Pour sauce over noodles and drop a dollop of sour cream on the side. Serve with a vegetable like broccoli or carrots.
