Top Review by LifeIsGood

If me going back for thirds is any indication, this recipe is excellent! My 91 year old mom, who has shrunk down to 86.5 lbs, actually had seconds! That is a huge feat, as I have been working every day to help her gain weight. I think I may be cooking this recipe a lot. I used about half the amount of meat and noodles, but kept the other indredients the same. It made for a great sauce to mix in with the noodles. Thank you! Made for the International Agents of QUEST for Culinary Quest's Russian region.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add the sirloin, browning it (in batches if necessary). Remove and set aside.
  2. Place the caraway seeds (if using) and onion in the Dutch oven. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is transparent, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook until soft, another 8 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste, paprika, and salt until well blended. Add the sirloin and broth, stirring to combine.
  3. Simmer until the meat is very tender and about half the liquid remains, 10 to 15 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat and stir in the parsley and sour cream. Serve over the egg noodles.
