3tablespoons flour, all-purpose
1 1/2teaspoon salt
1/4teaspoon black pepper *
1teaspoon paprika

1tablespoon ketchup OR tomato paste
1teaspoon worcestershire sauce
1/2cup sour cream
1x chives OR parsley, chopped, for garnish, if desired*
* not incl. in nutrient facts

Directions

Trim excess fat from meat. Cut meat in thin strips. Combine flour with salt, pepper, paprika and mustard. Toss meat with seasoned flour.

Melt 1/3 of the butter in large heavy skillet. Add garlic; sauté until golden. Remove; set aside. Melt 1/3 more butter. Saute onions for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove; set aside. Heat remaining butter. Saute meat strips until browned; add the beef stock, onions and garlic.

Stir to dissolve browned bits in bottom of skillet. Simmer, uncovered, 10 to 15 minutes, until meat is tender and mixture is thickened, stirring occasionally. Add tomato ketchup or paste, worcestershire sauce and sour cream. Heat gently.

Serve over egg noodles or rice.

Sprinkle top with chives or parsley and a good dose of fresh ground black pepper, if desired.

Makes 5-6 servings.

Notes: Always stir sour cream into a hot sauce or soup just before serving. Heat it gently and only until the mixture is warmed through. Allowing the mixture to boil will cause curdling. Milk products won't separate as easily in flour-based mixtures. This dish comes together rather quickly, and is so good! Beef strips simmer in a richly flavored sauce. Serve it with rice or warm, crusty French bread to take advantage of the super yummy sauce!

It's nice to see good flavor-building techniques used in this simple and quick weeknight meal. And flavor it delivered. The browning of the onion and garlic, seasoning of the beef, then reduction of stock to pick up and concentrate every bit of flavor from simple ingredients. We served atop a bed of egg noodles and then topped with some slice scallions. The sauce was rich, creamy and packed with flavor. Make sure to use low-sodium beef stock or just leave out the salt called for in the ingredients.
