Smoked Beef Stroganoff for #SundaySupper

This week’s #SundaySupper theme is near and dear to my heart.  Cooking with Wine! When I cook with wine, I tend to make a very elaborate, time consuming dish.  Today, I am opting to feature one of the most basic yet elegant staples of every cook’s kitchen– Smoked Beef Stroganoff!

When searching, you may find numerous versions of Beef Stroganoff.  There are perhaps as many versions of this dish as there are varieties of wine!  Some recipes call for white wine and other versions use red wine.  We like our meals to be more earthy rather than light and fruity, so we were perfectly happy using our normal recipe for Beef Stroganoff.  It only takes about 30-40 minutes from start to finish, so it’s super impressive when you’re in a rush!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound of beef, sliced very thin or cut into small cubes (I recommend strips)  Use a high quality beef or your meat could be “tough”
  • 4 Tbsp of butter
  • 2 Tbsp of all purpose flour
  • 1 medium yellow onion, sliced into strips
  • 1 medium white onion, sliced into strips
  • 8-12 oz of crimini mushrooms quartered (unless you have mushroom haters, go with the 12 oz)
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • 1 Tbsp paprika
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 cup red wine (recommend using a Bordeaux, Merlot or an earthy Cabernet Sauvignon)
  • 2/3 cup of sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp worcestershire sauce
  • Kosher salt to taste
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Parsley (optional)

Directions

In a dutch oven, heat 2 Tbsp of the butter.  Add the garlic and both onions, and saute for 10 minutes.

When the onions turn a light golden color, add the flour to the onions and mix until onions are coated.  Immediately add the beef broth and wine and stir until all the lumps are gone.

Pour yourself a glass of wine to drink while you continue to cook. This is also where I’d recommend starting the water for the pasta.  The rest of the cooking process is going to go very fast, and you’ll want your pasta ready when you’re done with the stroganoff.

Continue cooking the mixture over medium heat for about 4 minutes.  The mixture will become thick.  Remove the dutch oven from heat, and empy the onion and sauce mixture into a large bowl and set aside.  Wash out the dutch oven so that you can use it for the rest of the cooking process.

Season the beef strips with the paprika, salt, and pepper.  Melt the remaining butter in the dutch oven.  When the butter is hot, add the quartered mushrooms and cook on medium-high heat until the mushrooms just start to brown up. (about 3-4 minutes)  Add the seasoned beef strips and cook until most of the pink is out of the meat. (about 4 minutes)  Add the onion/sauce mix back to the dutch oven.  Mix in the sour cream and worcestershire sauce.  Remove from heat.  Serve over noodles or rice and garnish with parsley. (optional)
