Beef Stroganoff

We love pasta.  This dish is an easy variation of the mid-19th century Russian classic.  You can make it low-fat by using low or non-fat milk and sour cream.


Add a salad and you have a great, easy, week night meal!

You don’t need much, 

What you need:

  • 1 # sirloin steak
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 cups sliced mushrooms (I like to use crimini)
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup chicken stock
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 2 Tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 12 oz package of egg noodles prepared as package directs

How to Do it:

Slice the beef into thin strips.  If the beef is still slightly frozen, it is much easier to cut thin.


Mix the flour, salt, pepper and garlic powder in a large bowl.  Put the meat in and toss, making sure all of the meat is covered with the flour mixture.


Melt the butter in a large kettle on medium and add the garlic and mushrooms.  Gently cook until the mushrooms are starting to get tender.  Remove from heat and set aside.


Add 1 Tablespoon of the olive oil to the kettle and heat on medium-high.   Cook the meat and flour until it begins to become golden brown.


Stir in the chicken stock and de-glaze the pan (loosen all the flour and meat particles that have stuck to the bottom).  Add the mushrooms and simmer on low for about 5-10 minutes.

Add the milk and stir, gently, until the sauce is beginning to thicken.  If it becomes too thick you can add a little more water or milk.

Just before serving, stir in the sour cream and cook until it is heated through.

Toss the noodles with the remaining olive oil and a pinch of salt and serve with the sauce over them and the parsley to garnish.


Serves 4
