Subj: Beef Stroganoff Recipes
BEEF STROGANOFF - A SLAM-BAM-SAM ! Prep time about 15 mins
1 1/2 lbs Beef Tenderloin, round steak, stew meat (cooking times vary to
1-2 TBLS Salt-free Butter, if you substitute Margarine you have to use more
and it won't brown as well.
1 1/2 Beef broth..Make your own stock or open a can.
2 TBLS Catsup
Garlic - 1 clove or 1/8 tsp granulated minimum. I use both sometimes and
more. We like it.
1/2 pound Mushrooms, sliced. I use more or less according to availability.
1 onion, small medium. Chop it fine.
Flour or Corn starch to thicken
1 Cup dairy sour creme (any, lo fat or ?)
Now you can "dress up" this recipe or "dress it down" - for cost. Stew meat
(cut 1/8 inch slices) takes
longer to get tender and of course Tenderloin is much faster. I always use
round steak since we like the
flavor. 10 mins to tender or thereabouts.
Cut the meat across the grain in 3 inch X 1/4 inch strips. If you don't have
a kitchen shears toss the
meat in the freezer for 1/2 to an hour and use a knife. Cut off all the fat.
Brown the meat in the butter. I like to use Wok. 12 inch skillet or ? OK
I season the meat with granulated garlic.
Broth - set aside 1/3 cup for flour or cornstarch later (to thicken). Make a
mix adding Catsup, chopped
(if desired) fresh garlic clove(s) and salt 1 tsp if desired.
Add broth mix to meat. Cover and Simmer until meat is tender. Stew meat
will take 1 or more hours,
other beef 10 mins or more.
I like to saute (little butter) my chopped onion and sliced mushrooms aside
but you can just add them as
is when meat is tender. Simmer until onion is tender. I think mushrooms
need a little salt.
Use the reserved broth to dilute your thickener. Add to boiling meat mix
.Attend until thickened.
Reduce heat and stir in Sour Creme.
We like Egg noodles but you can serve poured over anything. I've used
Brown meat and season
Add most of the broth with Catsup and fresh garlic.
Cover, Simmer to meat tender.
Add onions & mushrooms, simmer until onion tender
Add sour cream, HEAT THRU
STROGANOFF-1 - Sumptuous beef Stroganoff
This easy recipe can be served either on steamed rice or on
INGREDIENTS (Serves 4)
1 1/2 lbs round steak or other beef fillet
8 oz canned sliced mushrooms
12 oz sour cream
4 oz white wine
2 Tbsp chopped onion
2 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp nutmeg
1 Tbsp chopped chives
1 tsp minced garlic (or more to taste)
pasta or steamed rice
(1) Cut meat into 1/2-inch thick by 2 inch long
(2) Saute the onions in butter until brown.
(3) Place meat in pan with onions. Sear quickly in
frying pan along with onion. (This seals the
juices inside.) Avoid overcooking the meat.
(4) Add mushrooms, and stir in the wine, chives, and
garlic for about 5 minutes.
(5) Finally add sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, and
chives, and simmer until it almost boils.
(6) Serve on noodles or steamed white rice.
You may want to vary the thickness of the sauce. I do this
by adding sour cream to thicken, or adding wine to lighten.
RATING Difficulty: easy. Time: 30 to 45 minutes cooking. Preci-
sion: approximate measurement OK.
