Dinner was yummy!!

So tonight I was feeling sick but dinner must be made. So I made this delicious beef stroganoff served over garlicy cheesy fries.

Beef stroganoff Recipe

  • 1 lb file mignon
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1 medium onion
  • 2 Tbsp of flour (optional)
  • 1 tsp of corn strach
  • 1/4 cup of cold water
  • 1 cup of tomato sauce (see the list of ingredients below)
  • 1 cup of sour cream
  • 1/2 cup of heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 Tbsp salt
Ingredients of the tomato sauce:
  • 1 cup of pure tomato juice
  • 1/4 cup of crushed walnuts
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup of mixed herbs (dills and cilantro), chopped
  • 1 tsp of salt

Cut filet mignon in 1 inch thick steaks and using a meat tenderizer flatten the meat. Sprinkle a little bit of black pepper on the meat and cut the meat into 1 inch thick strips. Set aside until needed for frying.

Meanwhile, prepare the tomato sauce for the Beef stroganoff. Mince greens and cloves of garlic, chop walnuts, add all of them to the tomato sauce along with salt and mix all the ingredients together. You can also add a little cayenne pepper. Set aside until needed.

Cut onions in thin half-circles. Dissolve starch in cold water.

On high heat, warm-up the skillet with oil. When well-heated, add the meat and fry until golden. Add onions, saute until onions turn slightly golden. Add tomato sauce, turn the heat down to medium-low and let the meat cook in the tomato sauce for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, heat heavy cream in a small sauce pan on medium heat and add starch water. Keep stirring the heavy cream until the starch is well incorporated. Add Sour cream and saute for another 2 minutes.

Take down the cream from the heat and pour it on top of the meat mixture and cook for another 10 minutes.
Serve beef stroganoff with a side of vegetables or mashed potatoes. I usually make home-made crispy fries. Add some minced garlic and freshly cut dills. Yummy!!!
