French Onion Beef Stroganoff

I am going to attempt to share more recipes, be it ones I've created myself or ones I've found! My usual go-to place for recipes these days seems to be Pinterest. So it's really no surprise that I found this one on Pinterest a few weeks or so ago. I love onion soup...however, I am the only one who would eat it. Well, I take that back...Victoria might eat it, she's come to love onions but still...anyways I digress...so I stumble upon this French Onion Beef Stroganoff and I am instantly intriqued. I admit openly I am not a stroganoff fan usually but this was different. So a few nights ago I made it and it was a hit with adults and kids alike! Top Mommy Blogs - Mom Blog Directory

French Onion Beef Stroganoff

INGREDIENTS
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter
  • 3 onions, French-cut
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 sprig thyme
  • 6 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1.5 lbs round steak, cut into chunks
  • Kosher salt and black pepper
  • All-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup red wine
  • 1½ cups beef broth
  • ½ tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 3 cups egg noodles
  • ⅔ cup sour cream
  • 1- 1½ cups grated Gruyere or Swiss
  • Parsley, to top
DIRECTIONS
  1. Melt the butter in a large, high-walled and heavy-bottomed pan over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, bay leaf, sprig of thyme, and a sprinkle of salt and pepper and cook until the onions are soft and nearly caramelized, about 20 minutes. Add in the mushrooms (with a little more butter, if necessary), and saute until the mushrooms are soft and slightly browned and the onions have caramelized, about 5 more minutes. Discard the bay leaf and thyme and remove the onions and mushrooms to a bowl.
  2. Heat a tablespoon of oil over medium-high, and sprinkle the steak with salt, pepper, and flour. Saute until browned, about 3 minutes. Remove the steak and set in the bowl with the mushrooms and onions.
  3. Deglaze the pan with the red wine. Add in 1½ cups beef broth and ½ tablespoon Worcestershire sauce and bring to a low simmer. Add back in the steak, mushrooms, and onions and let simmer, covered, until the broth reduces slightly and the steak is cooked, about 8 minutes.
  4. As you wait for the broth to reduce, cook the egg noodles according to the package. Drain and set aside.
  5. Remove the beef mixture from the heat and add in the ⅔ cup of sour cream, stirring well. Mix in the cooked egg noodles.
  6. Top with 1 to ½ cups grated Gruyere. If in a ovenproof pan, put under the broiler until cheese is melted and slightly browned. If not, leave the pan on the burner on medium-low, cover, and heat until cheese melts.
  7. Top with torn parsley and serve.

Here are some pictures I took while cooking: 









One thing I didn't do was cook it in a pan that I could put in the oven at the end to melt the Swiss cheese and brown it a bit - I totally forgot and used my nonstick pan. Oops! That said, it was still delicious! 

Side note - as stated before I don't cook with wine, so I subbed beef broth in this recipe for the wine.
