Dad’s Beef Stroganoff


This is one of my favorite recipes my Dad makes, when I was young (and picky) I would just pick at it and load up on the sides-it’s funny how that works…

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 15-20 min

Serves: 4


  • 1.5 lbs of sirloin steak, cut into strips
  • 1/2 of a large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 container of sliced and washed mushrooms (about 1.5 cups or so)
  • 1/3 cup red wine
  • 16 oz light sour cream
  • 2 TBS butter
  • Sea salt, freshly ground pepper, and garlic powder to taste
  • 1 bag of “broad” Egg noodles (I use No Yolk)


  1. Heat skillet on medium high with 1 tbs of butter, cut up produce and add to hot skillet cook for 5 min.
  2. Add 1/3 cup of wine and cook for 5 more min.  Cut up steak while the produce is cooking.
  3. Transfer produce and juice into medium bowl and return skillet to stove and turn up heat to high with 1 tbs of butter.  Get water boiling for noodles.
  4. Add steak to skillet and cook until medium rare, turning to brown on all sides. Sprinkle with garlic powder.
  5. Add produce mixture to skillet and turn burner off and let it cool down for about 5 min.
  6. Add 16 oz of sour cream to skillet and mix well, add salt and pepper to taste.
  7. Serve steak mixture over a bed of noodles.

*It’s important to not add the sour cream when the skillet and mixture is too hot or the sauce will get runny.

About zestybeandog

I live in Austin with my wonderful husband, dog Ginger, and cat Skiddy. We are a pretty laid back group (except for Ginger). When I'm not teaching yoga, personal training, or dog walking... I'm in the kitchen. I'm always experimenting with new ingredients and thinking of ways to prepare fresh foods in a unique way. I hope to update the blog 4-5 times a week. I've had several friends, family, and clients inquire about my recipes so here it goes. What to expect: Healthy recipes that are good for you, some classics (that have been spruced up), some not so healthy recipes (still made with quality ingredients that can be enjoyed in moderation), and beer and wine parings/reviews! I hope you enjoy, cheers!
