Recipe: Beef Stroganoff

Hey cupcakes! As I mentioned in another post, I absolutely LOVE The Pioneer Woman on Food Network (see that post here). I thought her recipe for Beef Stroganoff sounded really tasty, so I made it for my family before I left for college. It was quite easy, so I wanted to share it with you all!

Find original recipe here

What You Need
-1 pound sirloin steak (cut into cubes)
-Salt and pepper to taste
-2 tbsp olive oil
-1/2 diced large onion
-2 diced whole carrots
-8 oz white button mushrooms (stemmed and halved)
-1/2 cup brandy
-2 1/4 cups beef stock
-2 tbsp cornstarch
-1/4 cup sour cream, room temp.
-1 tsp dijon mustard

1. Season the steak with salt and pepper. Heat half of the olive oil in a heavy skillet over medium high heat, add half the meat to the pan and brown it quickly (about 2 minutes).

2. Remove the first batch of meat to a bowl and cook the rest. Remove and set aside.

3. Add remaining olive oil to the pan and add onion, carrots, and mushrooms. Cool until mixture is golden brown (about 5 minutes).

4. Turn off heat and add the brandy and 2 cups beef stock. Stir, scrape the bottom of the pan, and turn the heat to medium-high. Cook to reduce the liquid by about a third (about 3 or 4 minutes).

5. In a small bowl, make a slurry by mixing 1/4 stock and cornstarch witha a fork. Pour into the skillet and cook until the sauce thickens (about 1 or 2 minutes).

6. Turn off the heat. Stir in sour cream and mustard.

7. Add the beef and stir over low heat until the mixture is nice and hot.

8. Serve over cooked noodles! :)
