Beef Stroganoff

This is one of my tried and true dishes to take to friends who are down in the dumps.  It's easy and just about everyone loves it.


4 tablespoons Butter (or other) Olive Oil, divided
1 1/2 lb. thinly sliced steak (or ground beef)
Salt and pepper
1 medium onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 lb. fresh mushrooms, cut in thick slices
1/2 cup white wine
1 1/2 cups beef broth
1 tablespoon Neapolitan Herb or Traditional Balsamic Vinegar
3 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 cup Greek yogurt or sour cream
1 lb. egg noodles

Saute the beef in 2 tablespoons of the olive oil until done, 5-7 minutes.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Set beef aside.

In 2 tablespoons olive oil, saute the onions about 5 minutes.  Add the mushrooms and garlic; saute until the mushrooms are cooked, about 5 minutes.  Season with salt and pepper.

Combine the wine, broth, vinegar, flour and thyme in a cup.


Add the beef to the mushroom and pour in the sauce.  Cook until thickened and bubbly, about 5 minutes.  Taste for salt and pepper.  Remove from the heat and stir in the sour cream or yogurt.

Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add in the noodles.  Cook according to package directions.

Serve the meat/mushroom mixture over the noodles.
