WebMD Recipe from

Our version of beef Stroganoff tops seared flank steak with a rich-tasting sauce made with a touch of cognac, reduced-fat sour cream and plenty of portobello mushrooms. Serve over whole-wheat egg noodles.

Prep: 40 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes
  • 2 teaspoons plus 1 tablespoon
    canola oil, divided
  • 1 pound
    flank steak, trimmed
  • large portobello mushrooms, stemmed, halved and thinly sliced
  • large onion, sliced
  • 3/4 teaspoon
    dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    freshly ground pepper
  • 3 tablespoons
    all-purpose flour
  • 1 14-ounce can
    reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons
    cognac, or brandy
  • 1 tablespoon
    red-wine vinegar
  • 1/2 cup
    reduced-fat sour cream
  • 4 tablespoons
    chopped fresh chives, or parsley
  1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a large skillet over high heat until shimmering but not smoking. Add steak and cook until browned on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes per side. (The meat will be rare, but will continue to cook as it rests.) Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 minutes. Cut lengthwise into 2 long pieces then crosswise, across the grain, into 1/4-inch-thick slices.
  2. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the pan over medium heat. Add mushrooms, onion, thyme, salt and pepper and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables are very tender and lightly browned, 8 to 12 minutes. Sprinkle flour over the vegetables; stir to coat. Stir in broth, cognac (or brandy) and vinegar and bring to a boil, stirring often. Reduce heat to a simmer, and continue cooking, stirring often, until the mixture is thickened, about 3 minutes. Stir in sour cream, chives (or parsley), the sliced steak and any accumulated juices. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring, until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes more.
