Last night I helped my Dad make dinner. I always love cooking with him. My mom even suggested that my dad and I open a restuarant together. Who knows, maybe it will happen in the future.
We made my favorite dinner. I always like to have it on my birthday, unless we go out to a Japanese Steakhouse. It is very rich and comforting to me. While it sounds like a fancy meal too, it is very easy to put together.
- 1 pound beef tenderloin or sirloin steak, about ½ inch thick
- 2 tablespoons butter
- ½ mushrooms washed, trimmed and sliced
- 1 medium onion, minced (about ½ cup)
- 1 can condensed beef broth (9 ½ ounces plus 1 ounce white wine)
- 2 tablespoons catsup
- 1 small clove garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup dairy sour cream (room temperature)
- 3-4 cups hot cooked noodles
- Secret ingredient 😀
- Cut meat across the grain into ½ inch strips, about 1 ½ inches long. Melt butter in large skillet. Add mushrooms and onion; cook and stir until onion is tender, then remove from skillet. In same skillet, cook meat until light brown. Reserving 1/3 cup of the broth, stir in remaining broth, catsup, garlic, and salt. Cover; simmer 15 minutes.
- Blend reserved broth and flour; stir into meat mixture. Add mushrooms and onion. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Reduce heat. Stir in sour cream; heat. Serve over noodles.
