Not a “family” recipe except in our immediate family. A favorite request for birthday dinners served with a big salad, good bread and Carrot Cake.

  • 2 lbs (or more) round steak or stew meat
  • 1 onion
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 8oz fresh mushrooms
  • 2 cans beef bouillon
  • ½ cup catsup
  • 8oz sour cream
  • 1 cup wine (optional)

Cut meat in bite-sized pieces and brown in a small amount of olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper, barely cover with water, bring to boil and simmer for 1 hour, checking water. Add bouillon, catsup (and wine).
In frying pan, saute onion and sliced mushrooms in small amount of olive oil until onion is softened. Add to meat mixture and cook for 10 minutes or so. Thicken with flour and water ’till like gravy. Just before serving, gradually add sour cream, stirring in rapidly. Serve over rice, noodles or mashed potatoes.
