Yeah, me too, BT. Seriously. It's never anywhere near as exciting without them in the picture.

I expect the series with Clevland to be a tough one.

This weekend, Boston teams play Dallas and Cleveland.

It's a Cowboys and Indians weekend!

thanks everyone, for your replies , as well as your sympathy.

qsis, what can i say? we may not have hit bottom yet. if the boss fires torre, i think there'll be a mutiny.

andy, the meat is very lean, so i was pretty wary of long cooking methods.
can stroganoff made quickly, or does it require a long braise? i've never made it before, but must have eaten it a thousand times.

aera, some kind of fresh red sauce, lika a pizzaola might work. good one.

college cook, thanks for the idea/info. i'm definitely going to make the shiitake butter, yum.
i hadn't thought of using it in a pasta dish as pasta is ever-present at our meals - as a side, but rarely as a full course. i have some fresh criminis at home, so they may be destined for this dish later this week.
you've given me another idea: to sear it, then toss with fusilli, oil, hot pepper flakes, and evoo.

auntdot, the stir fry, like steak kew, is a great idea. so is a cottage pie, or the hash. thank you!

jeekinz, steak and eggs it is! oh man, i'm drooling for it now. i'm working 'till 8am, so the house should smell good by 9-ish, tomorrow morning.


thanks again everyone.

BT, stroganov is a quick recipe intended for lean tender meat.


Beef Stroganov

1 T Powdered mustard
2 tsp Sugar
2 tsp Salt
4 Tb Oil
2 Tb Butter
4 C mushrooms - sliced thin
4 C Onions - sliced thin
2 Lb Tenderloin or Sirloin
1 tsp Black pepper
1 Pt Sour cream

Trim all fat from the beef and slice into strips 0.25 by 1.

Combine the mustard, half the sugar, and a pinch of salt with a Tb of hot tap water and stir to form a paste. Let it stand for 15 minutes.

Heat half the oil in a large fry pan or skillet. When the pan is hot, add the mushrooms and onions and stir. Cook covered over low heat for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Drain and discard the juices.

Place the remaining oil and the butter in a hot fry pan or skillet. Brown the meat rapidly over high heat. Cook the meat in several small batches to ensure rapid browning.

Return all the meat to the pan along with the cooked mushrooms and onions. Add the remaining salt, pepper, sugar and mustard paste.

Add the sour cream a spoonful at a time and mix in gradually until it is all heated through.

Serve over buttered egg noodles or rice.

This is supposed to be the classic recipe created for a Czar of Russia when he visited Siberia. All the meat was frozen solid and the chef could only break off small pieces. This dish was created to present those scraps of beef in the best possible way.

thank you very much, andy. that's exactly the kind of thing i was looking for. copied and printed for a future attempt, hopefully soon. i especially like the little added historical blurb at the end.

and thanks for the ideas, jeff. hmmm, steak and shrooms? there used to be a deli across from my job that made a sammich called a giacomo: hot roast beast, griddled onions and mushrooms, gravy, and cheese on a baguette. i could go for one right now.


i'm thinking i may need to buy another whole tenderloin soon. i'm going food shopping in the morning on the way home, back to the market where i got the first one at such a great price. if they're still on sale, i'm going to pick another one up, and then have to find room in a freezer to stow it.

Ah, no We called it that in MI where I grew up and I hear it here in VA, too.
