"One of my son's favorites, when I taught him to cook, we made it often. It's important to choose a nice cut of beef, because the beef is essentially stir-fried, rather than slow cooked. I like to use brown cremini mushrooms in this, but button mushrooms will also work just fine. It's important to use low-sodium broth, to prevent the finished sauce from becoming too salty. Serve over noodles or rice."

Step 1

Slice the steak into 2"x1"x1/4" pieces. Heat oil in large skillet and brown beef in single layer (make two batches if necessary). Remove beef from pan and keep warm. It's important to remove the beef as soon as it's lightly browned - don't worry about cooking through, because it will cook through when returned to the sauce.

Step 2

In same pan, saute onions, mushrooms, and garlic. Cover if necessary to keep pan from drying out. When vegetables are tender, deglaze pan with chicken broth and wine. Reduce heat to low. Add worchestershire sauce, ketchup, pepper and parsley. Stir, and taste sauce for salt - you probably won't need any due to the salt in the other ingredients. Return beef to skillet, and stir to combine.

Step 3

Place sour cream in a small bowl, and add 3 T. of the hot pan sauce, one tablespoon at a time. This warms and thins the cream so it doesn't curdle when added to the pan. Meantime, the sauce in the pan should have reduced, and just barely coats the beef and mushrooms.

Step 4

Add the sour cream mixture to the pan, and stir to combine. Sometimes, the sauce will look a bit "grainy" at this point - just increase the heat and reduce a little, and it'll become creamy again.

Step 5

Serve over rice or noodles

Delicious and full of flavors we love! I added more mushrooms and it just made it better. I served ours over zucchini noodles. The little ones loved it!

Great recipe that went over very well. I used NY sirloin steak. It was tender and really tasty. With winter coming I will keep this recipe handy to make again. Such a great comfort meal and great with thin noodles.

This sounded too good to pass up and I was right, it's delicious over wide egg noodles!
