The Insider’s Guide to Healthy Hawaii: An Easy Beef Stroganoff Recipe for Valentine’s Day

The Insider’s Guide to Healthy Hawaii: An Easy Beef Stroganoff Recipe for Valentine’s Day

Get an easy, delicious and nutritious recipe for beef stroganoff with mushrooms from HMSA.

Whether you’re dining alone or with someone else, make this simple, quick beef stroganoff to nourish body and mind. If it’s just you, there’ll be enough leftovers for a lunch or two. Or, pack a serving, take it to work and give it to a coworker. They’ll love you for it.

Some tips before you get cooking:

  1. Slice beef into strips. Not too long and not too skinny.
  2. I don’t like sliced mushrooms in this dish, so I rough-chop them. It’s a whole lot quicker than slicing.
  3. Working in two batches, brown the meat quickly. I mean, really quickly. Takes about one or two minutes.
  4. The meat is done and waiting on the sidelines. Sautee mushrooms and onions in the same skillet.
  5. Add beef broth and bring to a boil. When it boils, add flour and water mixture. Stir constantly until thickened.
  6. Take skillet off the heat to stir in sour cream and mustard. The relatively small amount of sour cream makes this stroganoff a little indulgent without going overboard.
  7. Serve with egg noodles. If you live in Hawaii, you might want it with rice.

This is one serving. Just for you, because you love you. Have a happy Valentine’s Day!

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 pound sirloin steak, sliced into strips 
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/2 onion, finely chopped
  • 14 ounces can reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 8 ounces egg noodles, cooked according to package directions

Heat one tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Season meat with salt and pepper. Add half the meat to skillet and stir to brown it quickly. Remove meat from skillet and set aside. Brown the remaining meat and set it aside with the first batch.

Add remaining one tablespoon olive oil to skillet. Sautee mushrooms and onion until onion is translucent. Add beef broth and bring to a boil. Allow it to boil two to three minutes to reduce it slightly. In a small bowl, mix flour with water until smooth. Pour mixture into skillet and cook and stir until sauce thickens. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream, mustard and beef. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. Serve with egg noodles. Makes four servings.
