- Butter and/or olive oil for frying
- 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
- 2 medium onions, diced
- 1 (20-ounce) sirloin steak, cut into 1-inch strips
Flour for dredging
- 1/2 cup red or white wine, plus more for deglazing pan
- 16 ounces beef stock
- 1 pint sour cream
- 1 tablespoon Worchestershire
- Salt and pepper
- Egg noodles or rice as an accompaniment
- Garnish: parsley
In a hot saute pan melt butter and saute the mushrooms first then add the onions. The mushrooms take a little longer. In a separate pan brown strips of sirloin that have been dredged in flour. Set aside. When the onions and mushrooms are done, deglaze both of the pans with a little white or red wine and combine all ingredients into one pan. Add 2 cups beef stock, white wine or water and 1/2 of the pint of sour cream. Simmer for 30 to 45 minutes. During the cooking the sour cream will separate and some of the butterfat will become visible. This is normal, just stir the pot. Just before serving add the balance of the sour cream, stir to combine. Serve over noodles or rice pilaf and garnish with parsley.
- 1 1/2 cups water
- 1/2 cup amaranth
Combine water, the amaranth, and a pinch of salt in a small saucepan, bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cover and cook over low heat for 25 minutes or until the water is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Makes about 1 cups.
Variation with Mixed Tiny Grains: Mix teff, amaranth, and quinoa, the latter thoroughly rinsed, and cook as described.
