Beef Stroganoff

We did a lot this weekend- girls night/boys night out on the town including dining by the fire and sipping on wine all night with some new and old friends, tried out a new church, went rock climbing, went to an amazing tapas mexican restaurant with hubs and enjoyed some people watching, bought some new records, but alas we decided to leave the camera at home for all of it. But I do have this awesome recipe for these rainy days we've had rolling in...

When it starts getting cold outside all I really want is a dinner that makes me feel full and and warm. For some reason my mind wandered to this. And it really hit the spot. It was a lot lighter than when you make it in a crock pot but still filling.

1 tbs olive oil
10 ounces beef sirloin; cut into strips
1 tbs butter
1 onion; diced
2 cloves garlic; minced
9 ounces crimini mushrooms; halved
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 tbs tomato paste
1/2 tsp thyme
1/4 tsp chili powder
3/4 cup beef stock
2 tsp flour
1/4 cup sour cream
egg noodles

serves 4

1     place oil in pan over medium heat, once it is hot add a layer of the beef strips
2     cook them through and transfer to another bowl, do this with all the strips
3     then melt the butter in the same pan and add in the onion, garlic, and mushrooms
4     saute until onions start to brown and mushrooms are cooked through
5     transfer the vegetables to the bowl with the meat
6     in the same pan add the wine and scrape any of the juices off the bottom of the pan and stir them in
7     cook until the almost all the liquid is gone
(at this point put on water for the egg noodles and start to cook them)
8     add in the tomato paste, beef stock, thyme and chili powder
9     cook until this has reduced by half
10   meanwhile mix the flour and sour cream together in a small bowl until there are no lumps
11   then reduce the heat to low and stir a few tbs of the hot liquid into the sour cream mixture
(you do this so it doesn't curdle)
12   then pour the cream mixture into the pan, mix well 
13   add back in the beef and vegetables and make sure they warm back up
14    serve over egg noodles
