Beef Stroganoff


This is another favorite comfort food I love to make, the weather has been cold and it sounded good. It is easy and filling.


Ingredients

1 lb beef, top round or whatever cut you like
1 can beef broth
1.5 tbl Dijon mustard
1/3 cup fat free sour cream
1 family size can Cream of Mushroom Soup, I use the low fat one
1 cup sliced mushrooms (any kind you like)
1/2 large sweet onion, sliced
2 tbl butter
1 package noodles, I use the "No Yolks" brand

Method

*Put your meat in the freezer for about 20 minutes, remove and cut into strips on the bias (freezing will make it easier to slice)
*Heat a Dutch Oven or any high sided pan on medium heat, add olive oil and cook the onions until slightly browned, remove to a bowl
*Now get your pan smoking hot and add oil (I used peanut)
*Quickly sear the meat on both sides, you may need to do it in two batches
*Put the seared meat and onions back into the pan
*Add 1 can of beef broth and gently simmer for an hour

Start the water for your noodles

Add the mushrooms, sour cream, Dijon, cream of mushroom soup and salt and pepper to your pan. Simmer together until your noodles are done, drain and return to the pan, add a pat or two of butter or margarine to your noodles and you are ready to serve.

Place your buttered noodles on a place or in a bowl, and scoop as much of the sauce mixture on as you would like.

Garnish with green onions and more mushrooms if you wish.
