Simply, Sirloin Stroganoff

I grew up in a Swedish community - and my comfort foods usually include cream, butter, or some other splendidly fattening ingredient. As I am consciously focusing on preparing healthy meals for my family, I am learning to substitute these ingredients for other (flavor FULL) options. Here is a new family favorite. We served it over a platter of brown rice; however, you could easily use egg noodles or any other type of pasta.

Sirloin Stroganoff
1 # Sirloin steak, sliced thinly
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/4 tsp salt
2 T. wheat flour
1 T. olive oil
1 head of broccoli florets, broken into approximately 1" pieces
10 oz fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 cup beef broth
1 cup water
1/4 cup fat free sour cream

Place sliced steak in a bowl and season with paprika, garlic powder, pepper and salt. Toss to combine well. Add the flour and toss to combine.

Heat oil until it is hot. Add the seasoned steak and stir-fry for about 3 minutes. Add the sliced mushrooms and continue to cook until they start to soften. Add the beef broth, water and broccoli florets and cover to cook until the broccoli is tender. Remove 1 cup of the broth and add the sour cream to it. After combining well, add back to the main pot. Let heat through.

Serve over your favorite starch: brown rice, pasta, potatoes, etc.

It was simply delicious! The boys ate it well - and I am looking forward to enjoying the leftovers.
