Homemade Beef Stroganoff

I know most people do recipes on Friday (Foodie Fridays) but I follow my own drum. Plus I have always loved to cook on Wednesday. It is the middle of the week which is great time to do something different if you are having a bad week or even a good week. So this week I decided to make beef stroganoff but I didn’t know how. So Google came to my rescue. After about twenty minutes of looking at different recipes, I liked pieces of different ones. Not one stood out, so I decided to make my own up.

1 lb of sirloin peite steak, cut thin

1/2 lb of sliced mushrooms

3/4 of a medium onion, thinly sliced

1/4 flour

1/2 cup of beef broth

seasoning of your choice

3 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 cup sour cream

In a large skillet, saute mushrooms and onion with olive oil. After 10 minutes, add meat to skillet. When meat is medium well, add flour, beef broth, sour cream. Cook for another 5 minutes. Serve with eggs noodles.

Step one: cook mushrooms and thinly sliced onions.

I am digging this Olive Oil right now. I love the easy pour top. 

I added this along with garlic. We really like the favor this brings to the dish.


Yumminess in the making. Meat added. 

If you look at the bottom of the container, you will see there is very little garlic left. I guess it is time to get more. Maybe I can talk Hubby into a date night and go get more. (We buy in bulk with seasonings and we have to go to a different town to pick it up.) 

Add your flour. 

It makes a great roux. I had to add more since mine was a little thin.

Add your sour cream and beef broth.  I had to get Glitter Bug out of the kitchen cause she kept asking if she could just have a little bit. 

I ADORE funky measuring cups. This one is 1/4 cup but works great because it is like a giant spoon. 

This is in my flour jar. Glitter Bug and I found them at a second hand shop. 

I love this dishes. They come in small, regular size plates, cups, and bowls. 

      There was just enough left for lunch today. I always feel supper is successful if Glitter Bug eats it. In this case she asked for seconds. Score one for me! 

    What is the new thing you have tried? I would love to hear about it.
