Many stroganoff recipes call for butter, olive oil, cream and sour cream. Stir-frying lightens the dish without sacrificing flavor or richness.
Ingredients

uncooked lean and trimmed beef flank steak

¾ pound(s)

dry sherry

2 Tbsp, divided

low sodium soy sauce

1 tsp

cornstarch

1 tsp

table salt

¾ tsp, divided

peanut oil

2 Tbsp, or vegetable oil, divided

canned beef broth

3 Tbsp, reduced-sodium

Dijon mustard

2 tsp

uncooked red onion(s)

½ cup(s), sliced, thinly sliced

cremini mushroom(s)

1 cup(s), or button, thinly sliced

uncooked bell pepper(s)

1 cup(s), thinly sliced

reduced-fat sour cream

¼ cup(s)

fresh parsley

2 Tbsp, minced

Instructions

  1. 1. Cut beef along grain into roughly 2-inch-wide strips. Cut each strip across grain into ¼-inch-thick slices. In a medium bowl, combine beef, 1 tablespoon of sherry, soy sauce, cornstarch and 1/2 tsp of salt until cornstarch is no longer visible. Stir in 1 teaspoon of oil. In a small bowl, combine broth, mustard and remaining 1 tablespoon sherry, until mustard is dissolved.
  2. 2. Heat a 14-inch flat-bottomed wok or 12 inch skillet over high heat until a bead of water vaporizes within 1 to 2 seconds of contact. Swirl in 1 Tbsp of oil, add onions and stir-fry 10 seconds or until fragrant. Push onions to side of wok and add beef and spread evenly in one layer in wok. Cook undisturbed 1 minute, letting beef begin to sear. Stir-fry 30 seconds with onions or until beef is lightly browned but not cooked through.
  3. 3. Swirl in remaining 2 teaspoons oil into wok, add mushrooms, bell pepper, sprinkle on remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and stir-fry 30 seconds or until just combined. Swirl broth mixture into wok, and stir-fry 30 seconds to 1 minute or until beef is just cooked through and vegetables are tender-crisp. Remove from heat. Stir in sour cream and parsley.
Notes
Make sure you cut the beef slices across the grain. If you cut the slices with the grain the meat will be tough.
