Steak Strips and Onions

Steak Strips and Onions

Beef steak strips simmered in a richly flavored sauce. This dish comes together rather quickly, and is so good!















1 ½ pound beef, sirloin steak
or even round steak cut into thin strips
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon dry mustard
4 tablespoons butter
or margarine
2 garlic
cloves, minced
1 cup onions
red, sliced or chopped
1 ½ cup beef stock
1 tablespoon ketchup
or tomato paste
1 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
½ cup sour cream
or parsley, chopped, for garnish, if desired


Trim excess fat from meat. Cut meat into thin strips.

Combine flour with salt, pepper, paprika and mustard. Toss meat with seasoned flour.

Melt ⅓ of the butter in a large heavy skillet. Add garlic; sauté until golden. Remove; set aside.

Melt ⅓ more butter. Sauté the onions for 5 to 6 minutes. Remove; set aside. Heat remaining butter.

Sauté meat strips until browned; add the beef stock, onions, and garlic. Stir to dissolve browned bits in the bottom of the skillet.

Simmer, uncovered, 10 to 15 minutes, until meat is tender and the 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 healthy dose of fresh ground black pepper, if desired.

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 may 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 simmered 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.

Can you substitute regular mustard for dry mustard?

Use both dry and pre-mixed mustards for a different hit....

Excellent recipe. I made it once with tomato paste and once with ketchup. I recommend the paste. I also used shallots instead of onions and added mushrooms. Delicious.

Such a good recipe! So glad I came across it, although I put all dry ingredients including onion and garlic in a bowl (then mixed up) to marinate while I was out. Later added beef stock and sour cream while cooking. Loved it! No butter for me. I used grapeseed oil. Very surprised by all the flavor.
