Use your meat tenderizer to pound the beef until it is tender and thin.
Slice beef into thin 1 inch (2cm) length strips.
In a skillet over medium flame, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil (approximately 2 minutes).
When the olive oil is very hot (but not smoking), add the beef strips for searing. That is, cook them VERY quickly (eg, 30 seconds) on one side, then turn them to sear the other side.
Remove beef from skillet and sit aside to rest for a few minutes. The beef is not yet cooked, but the flavor has been sealed in.
Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and heat.
Add onions (and any vegetables from the 'options' section below, if using).
Stir and cook for 3 minutes.
Add mushrooms and garlic.
Continue to stir for a further 2 minutes. (You may need to add extra oil since mushrooms tend to soak it up.)
Add tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, seared beef strips, salt and pepper and stir well.
Pour into a casserole dish and cover with foil.
Bake in oven at 360 degrees Fahrenheit (metric: 180 degrees Celsius) for 30 minutes.
Remove beef stroganoff from the oven and take off the aluminium foil
Stir in the sour cream.
Serve over rice, pasta, or mashed potatoes.
Garnish with a sprig of parsley.
Beef stroganoff is delicious, but can be calorie-heavy - especially when added to rice, pasta, or mashed potato. If you're looking for a lighter alternative with all the great taste, check out the 'options' heading (below).And always consider adding a side salad to complement a meaty main meal. :)
