Ingredients
  • 3 pounds boneless top sirloin
  • Salt and fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 small onion, diced (about 1 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 2 cups beef beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 12 cremini mushrooms, sliced (about 2 cups)
  • 1/3 cup reduced fat or regular cream cheese
  • 1/3 cup light sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons corn starch
  • additional salt and fresh ground pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  • long grain white rice, prepared according to package directions
Instructions
  1. Trim edges of sirloin of any excess fat. Thinly slice the meat and then slice each piece in half again lengthwise. Slices should be about 1/2 inch thick by 2 or 3 inches long.
  2. In a large skillet over medium high heat, melt the butter with the vegetable oil. Brown the beef strips quickly in batches, seasoning with salt and pepper as they cook. Be generous with the pepper. Remove beef from pan to a dish and repeat with remaining beef.
  3. Once all the meat is cooked, add onions and garlic to beef drippings in empty pan.  Cook and stir for a couple of minutes. Add wine and cook for a minute or two. Add beef broth, Dijon mustard and Worcestershire sauce and cook and stir for another minute. Add beef strips and combine well. Bring to a low boil, reduce heat to low, cover pot and simmer for an hour.
  4. After beef has simmered for 1 hour, remove some of the cooking liquid from the beef stroganoff to a small bowl.  Add cornstarch to the liquid and mix till cornstarch has dissolved. Pour the cornstarch slurry into the beef stroganoff and cook and stir for a minute or two as sauce thickens slightly. Add sliced mushrooms and allow to cook, stirring occasionally about 10 minutes. Add cream cheese and sour cream, stir to combine and allow to cook another  5 minutes. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper if needed. Sprinkle with fresh chives and serve over rice.
