Classic stroganoff is easy, quick

By
Published:

Stroganoff is an old Russian classic.

The mixture of mushrooms, tomato paste and mustard gives the stroganoff sauce a tangy blend of flavors and a creamy texture.

Helpful Hints:

• Diced fresh onions can be found in the produce section of the supermarket.

• Any type of mushrooms can be used.

• Use a skillet that is just big enough to hold the meat in one layer. The sauce will boil away in a larger skillet.

Beef Stroganoff

Yield 2 servings. Recipe by Linda Gassenheimer

1 teaspoon olive oil, divided

1/2 pound beef tenderloin, cut into 1-inch cubes

1 cup diced fresh onion

1/2 pound sliced button mushrooms (about 3 cups)

11/2 cups fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth

1/2 cup water

2 tablespoons tomato paste (no salt added)

1/4 pound flat egg noodles

2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

3 tablespoons nonfat sour cream

Freshly ground black pepper

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Heat oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Brown beef on all sides, about 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Add onion and mushrooms to the skillet. Saute 2 minutes. Add broth, water, tomato paste, mustard and noodles. Mix thoroughly. Bring to a boil, lower heat to medium, cover with a lid and simmer 10 minutes. Reduce heat to low and return beef to the skillet. Simmer 2 to 3 minutes. Taste. You may need to add a little more mustard. There should be a delicate blend of flavors. Stir in sour cream and add black pepper to taste. Mix thoroughly. Divide between two dinner plates and sprinkle with parsley.
