1. Put on the water for the noodles. Bring to a boil. Dissolve the
beef bouillon in the wine.
2. Prepare the meat by removing any silverskin, fat or whatever.
Slice the meat across the grain into 2- 3" strips. Then, in a medium
skillet, sauté the meat using 2 tablespoons of butter till the meat
is just browned but still rare. (DO NOT OVERCOOK, it will be tough!)
Remove from skillet, reserving all juices.
3. With two tablespoons of butter, sauté the onions, garlic and
mushrooms until the onion is just tender/crisp. Add the reserved
juices, flour, salt and pepper. Stir until smooth. Blend the
wine/bouillon mixture into the onion, garlic and mushrooms. Add the
catsup and sautéed meat. Bring to boil over medium/high heat while
stirring. Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 10 to 15 minutes to
thicken sauce and tenderize meat.
4. Cook the noodles per directions and drain. (approx.. 10 minutes,
do not rinse) Add 2 Tablespoons butter, stir until coated. Or omit
the butter and stir the stroganoff mixture directly into the noodles.
5. Fold the sour cream into the sauce mixture and heat through. Do not
allow to boil.
6. Serve over buttered noodles with crusty bread and one or two of the
following: steamed broccoli, grilled zucchini, pickled beets, chilled
Suggested Wine: Whichever was used for sauce
Serving Ideas : Steamed broccoli, grilled zucchini, pickled beets,
NOTES : You may use your own preferences whether to use butter or
oil. You may use 1 to 1-1/2 pounds of any whole or ground meat or
make it vegetarian with no meat. The meat flavor strength goes up as
follows, Elk, beef, bear, venison. Use a wine that corresponds in
flavor strength to the type of meat. The wine chosen will also affect
the sweetness of the dish. I.E. Venison and Burgundy, Elk and
Madeira. You may need to increase the cooking time a bit to tenderize
the meat or to thicken the sauce prior to adding the sour cream. See
"Hamburger Stroganoff" for a non-wine, creamy sauce. Recipe
