  • 1 lb egg noodles
  • 2 lbs flank, skirt or strip steak cut into thin strips
  • Fresh ground pepper and kosher salt to taste
  • 4 tbsp butter divided
  • 1 small white onion sliced thin
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lb baby bella mushrooms sliced
  • 1/2 cup red wine cabernet or pinot noir
  • 1.5 cups beef broth
  • 1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp corn starch
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • Fresh parsley for garnish chopped


  • Sprinkle steak with salt and pepper to taste. Heat water to boiling for the noodles. Meanwhile, heat 1 T of butter in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Once the butter has melted, add sliced steak in a single layer in the skillet. Cook for 3 minutes to sear the steak, then flip and let it cook 3 more minutes. Remove from skillet, add 1 T of butter and repeat for remaining steak.
  • Once the steak is fully cooked, return pan to heat and reduce heat to medium. Add butter if needed. Once butter has melted, add sliced onion and saute for about 3-4 minutes. Add mushrooms and garlic, stir. Saute for 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until mushrooms are cooked through.
  • Deglaze the pan with red wine and scrape the brown bits off the bottom. Allow to simmer and reduce for 3-5 minutes. Meanwhile, mix Worcestershire sauce, beef broth and cornstarch in a separate bowl.
  • Place egg noodles into water and cook according to package directions. Add the broth mixture to the skillet, stir to combine and simmer to reduce for 5 minutes. Add in heavy cream and cooked steak. Stir to combine.
  • Serve steak and sauce over egg noodles. Garnish with fresh parsley as desired.


I prefer a less creamy beef stroganoff. You can add more cream as desired, or substitute sour cream or plain Greek yogurt. 
Beef stock or white wine can be a substitute for red wine.
