By Danielle Singh
Ingredients: 8-ounces sour cream, reduced-fat 3 tablespoons no-salt added tomato paste 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce ½ cup all-purpose flour ½ teaspoon sea salt ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 2 lb. boneless sirloin steak, cut into (2-=inch) strips 1 tablespoon butter ¼ cup onion, chopped ½ cup dry sherry 1 (14-ounce) can less-sodium beef broth 2 cups mushrooms, sliced Chopped fresh parsley 8 cups whole wheat egg noodles, cooked (about 7 cups uncooked)
Directions: 1. In a medium bowl; combine the first 4 ingredients and set aside.
2. In a large Ziploc bag; combine flour, salt and pepper. Add beef, seal bag and shake to coat beef with flour mixture.
3. In a large nonstick skillet melt butter over medium-high heat. Add onion to pan and sauté
2 minutes or until tender. Add beef and flour mixture to pan and sauté 3 minutes or until beef is browned. Gradually add sherry and beef broth, scraping pan to loosen brown bits. Add mushrooms then cover and cook 5 minutes or until mushrooms are tender.
4. Reduce heat to low, gradually stir in sour cream mixture and cook uncovered for 1 minute until heated; do not boil. Stir in parsley and serve over egg noodles (¼ cup beef mixture over 1 cup egg noodles or serve over brown rice if you need to substitute for noodles).
Tip: To maintain a creamy consistency be sure to not bring the sauce to a boil once you stir in the sour cream mixture. #BeefStroganoff
