Yummy Beef Stroganoff

Thursday, January 13, 2011

I looked in my fridge last week and saw two lonely ribeye steaks staring back at me.  What was I going to do with them?  I didn't want to do a traditional steak and a potato.  So what...  What, what, to do??  I have no idea where the idea for Beef Stroganoff came from, but there it was in my head.  So I searched for a good recipe, that had most if not all of the ingredients I had on hand...

And I found a really yummy one, courtesy of Paula Deen...  How can you go wrong?

Beef Stroganoff

Here's what I used:

1.5 lbs cubed round steak (I cubed my ribeye steaks
All-purpose flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1 medium onion, sliced
8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can beef broth
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
Salt and Pepper
Garlic Powder
1 cup sour cream
1 bag egg noodles

Here's what I did:

Set a large stock pot to boil with enough water to cook egg noodles.  Season water with salt once it reaches a boil.  Add noodles and cook until al dente.  Set aside.

Season the steak strips with salt, pepper and garlic powder, then dust with flour. In a large nonstick pan,  brown them on both sides in the olive oil and butter. Remove the steak from the pan. Add the onion slices and mushrooms to the pan drippings. Saute for a few minutes, until the onion is tender. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon flour. Put the steak back into the pan with the onion and mushrooms. Add the mushroom soup and beef broth. Cook over low heat for about 30 minutes, covered. Adjust seasoning to taste, adding salt and pepper, as needed. Stir in the sour cream the last few minutes, right before you serve. Serve over cooked noodles.

This was a big hit.  For an extra burst of flavor, a little shredded parmeson on top is, how you say, magnifique.  ;)
