Beef Stroganoff


2 pounds beef tenderloin cut into bite sized pieces
2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 - 16 oz. (2 cups) container sour cream
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup dry red wine (optional)
1 - 14 oz. can beef broth
Salt and pepper to taste


Lightly coat tenderloin pieces with flour and salt and pepper. In a large saucepan, saute beef in butter with onions, mushrooms and garlic until meat is browned and onions and mushrooms are tender. Add Worcestershire sauce and beef broth and cook over medium heat for 10 - 15 minutes. Stir in sour cream and wine and heat for about 5 minutes. Serve over hot cooked noodles.

Variations and Tips:

Beef Stroganoff is real comfort food. The tender beef and gravy has a wonderful flavor that is traditionally served over noodles. Use the wide egg noodles rather than thin pasta-type noodles. If you don't like noodles, then you can serve this dish over rice.

The Skinny: Use light sour cream and low fat or fat free beef broth. If you don't want the red wine just leave it out.
