Braised Beef Strofanoff


Cook Time: 2 hours

Prep Time: 1 hour-ish

Braised Beef Stroganoff
serves 4 to 6

Vegetable oil or clarified butter
2 pounds braising beef (Sirloin steak tips)
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup red wine
2 cups unsalted beef broth
4 tablespoons butter
1 onion, diced
1 pound mushrooms (I used oyster, shitake, and cremini), cleaned and sliced
1 (8-ounce) carton sour cream (I used light)
Kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Cooked pappardelle
Flat leaf parsley, to garnish (optional)

Preheat the oven to 300°.

    1. Freeze the beef for 20 mins. Then dice into 1 inch cubes.  Pat dry
    2. Salt and pepper the beef, allow to rest for a little while.
    3. In the All Clad (or a dutch oven) Melt 3 Tbsp butter on high heat. Add the beef and braise for about 3-5 minutes (DO NOT COOK ALL THE WAY THROUGH). Work in batches if necessary, but add all the beef back once done with this step.
    4. Add 3 tbsp of flour and stir till it’s mixed entirely, about 1 minute.
    5. Add wine to deglaze then allow to reduce by half, about 10-15 minutes.
    6. Add the beef broth and bring to a boil
    7. Once at a boil, cover and place in the oven for 1 hour 30 mins (if using steak tips; longer 2:30 mins for crappy steak). Basically until the meat is very tender.
    8. Allow to cool for about 15 minutes then season with salt and pepper to taste.
    9. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat butter over medium heat. Saute the onions until softened.
    10. Add the mushrooms and cook until golden brown and tender, about 12 minutes.
    11. Add the mushrooms and onion to the beef sauce.
    12. In a medium bowl, stir one cup of the beef sauce into the sour cream.
    13. Fold the sour cream mixture back into the rest of the beef sauce.
    14. Season to taste.
    15. Gently reheat over low to medium-low heat if necessary.
    16. Serve over Papperdelle noodles.
