  • 1 pound Sirloin steak
  • 3 tablespoons Flour
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon Black pepper
  • ¼ cup Butter
  • ¼ cup Onion finely diced
  • ½ pound Mushrooms cleaned and sliced
  • ¼ teaspoon Worcestershire
  • 1 cup Sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon Pepper
  • 8 ounces Egg Noodles


  • Sandwich steak between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound with a mallet until it is an even ½ inch thick. Alternatively, if you have a thick piece of steak you can cut the steak in half widthwise to create two thin pieces of steak. Cut the steak into ½ inch wide strips about 3 inches long.
  • In a large bowl mix flour, salt, and pepper together. Toss steak strips in the flour mixture. Set floured steak aside.
  • Add half of the butter to a large skillet and heat over medium high heat until melted
  • Place half of the floured steak to the skillet and brown for 1-2 minutes per side. Set browned meat on a clean plate.
  • Add the remaining butter to the pan followed by the remaining beef and finish browning the meat. Add browned beef to the plate as well.
  • Add onions and cleaned sliced mushrooms to the skillet. Cover and cook slowly for 7-10 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • While the sauce simmers, cook the egg noodles according to the package instructions.
  • Stir in the Worcestershire and sour cream and cook with the mushrooms and onions for 2 minutes.
  • Add the beef to the pan and continue to cook for 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Serve over cooked egg noodles.
