Beef Stroganoff

2 teaspoons vegetable oil
3 tablespoons butter
1 1/2 pounds thinly-sliced steak 
fine sea salt and freshly-cracked black pepper
1 small white onion, thinly sliced
1 pound sliced mushrooms 
4 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1/2 cup dry white wine
1 1/2 cups beef stock
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons dried dill
chopped fresh parsley 


  1. Heat pan with vegetable oil. Add the steak in a single layer, seasoned with a few generous pinches of salt and pepper, and let it cook undisturbed for about 3 minutes to get a good sear. Flip the steak, and cook on the other side until browned, another 2-3 minutes. Then remove steak from pan with a slotted spoon, transfer to a clean plate, and set aside. (If your pan is not big enough to fit all of the steak in a single layer, cook half of the steak. Then repeat with a second batch.)
  2. Add the butter to the sauté pan. Once it has melted, add the onions and sauté for about 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and sauté for an additional 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the mushrooms are cooked and the onions are soft. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Then add the white wine and deglaze the pan by using your cooking spoon to scrape the brown bits off the bottom of the pan. Let the mixture cook down for an additional 3 minutes.
  3. 3. While the wine cooks down, whisk together the beef stock, Worcestershire sauce and flour until smooth in a separate bowl. Pour the beef stock mixture into the sauté pan, stir to combine, then let the mixture simmer for at least 5 minutes, add dill and stirring occasionally. Stir in the Greek yogurt (or sour cream) and cooked steak until combined. Taste and season with additional salt and pepper if needed. Serve with egg noodles or rice.
