This Saturday on the Weekend Morning Show - Beef Stroganoff
(Beef Stroganoff - not so easy to photograph well.)
This morning on CBC's Weekend Morning Show with Kerän Sanders, I had the pleasure of presenting a classic Russian dish, Beef Stroganoff (see also Stroganov). Give this recipe a try on a cool evening or when you are craving some nice comfort food.
1 1/3 lb beef, cut into strips against the grain
2 red onions, thinly sliced
1 tbs butter
1 tbs olive oil
1 tbs flour
salt and pepper
1 green pepper, chopped
1-2 cups sliced button mushrooms
1/4 - 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
1 cup white wine
1 cup cream (I used sour cream)
Toss sliced beef with seasoned flour and set aside. Sauté onions in butter and olive oil until transluscent and add the beef. Brown beef and add mushrooms. Add green pepper and spices. Add cream and bring to a simmer. Add white wine and season to taste. Flour must simmer for at least one minute to remove floury taste.
Serve over egg noodles.
