The Fifth Day of Christmas...

Today was the first day that I had the chance to cook foods that we really wanted to eat! After a huge grocery trip with Little Man, we made one of our favorites, Beef Stroganoff. Here's the recipe, adapted from Joy of Cooking:

1 to 1 1/2 pounds of beef tenderloin
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 stick of butter
3 T. all-purpose flour
3 c. beef stock heated to a simmer
1 medium onion
9 T. sour cream
3 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 box of mushrooms
egg noodles

Cut beef tenderloin into thin strips. Dice onion. Melt 1 T. of butter in a pan and add beef tenderloin, onion, and salt and pepper to taste. Cook the meat as desired (our family cooks it all the way through). Clean and slice mushrooms. Melt 1 T. of butter in another pan and saute. Melt 4 1/2 T. of butter in saucepan. Whisk in flour and cook for 2 to 3 minutes. Add beef stock and and whisk constantly for 3 -4 minutes to prevent lumps. Simmer until sauce is smooth and thickened. Add 9 T. of sour cream and whisk. Put in the Dijon mustard and whisk. Add sauteed mushrooms and beef tenderloin and stir. Prepare egg noodles according the the package directions. Put a bed of noodles on each plate and spoon beef stroganoff on top. Serve hot.
