This recipe stretches 1 pound of beef to a satisfying meal for 4.

- 1 lb medium-size mushroom
- 1 medium onion
- 1 tablespoon salad oil
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can beef broth
- 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon sugar
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
- light sour cream (optional)
- Place beef in freezer to make it easier to slice.
- Prepare egg noodles according to package directions; drain, butter, and keep warm.
- Meanwhile, take beef out of freezer and cut steak lengthwise in half.
- Then, with knife held in slanting position almost parallel to the cutting surface, slice each half across width into 1/8-inch thick slices.

- Spoon beef mixture over noodles.
- Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
- Pass light sour cream to spoon over each serving.
I was impressed at how quickly this went together for a tasty version of a classic dish. I did need to add a little cornstarch as it would otherwise have been a little too runny, and I also added a little papprika for extra richness of flavour. Very nice; thanks hudelei!
