DIRECTIONS

  • Note: A suggested variation is to add 1 tablespoon of brandy to the cooked shallot or onion and reduce it to nothing before adding the garlic and paprika.
  • Trim the meat of any fat and sinew, then cut it into strips about 1 1/2 inches long and 1/4 inch thick.
  • Finely chop the shallot or onion.
  • Crush the garlic.
  • Melt butter in a skillet, add the shallot or onion and cook over low heat for 5 to 7 minutes, until soft and translucent.
  • Stir in garlic and paprika.
  • Cook for 1 minute, stirring.
  • Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Add oil to pan and heat it over high heat.
  • When it sizzles, add beef and toss for 2 to 3 minutes, until beef is browned.
  • Stir in shallot mixture and salt and pepper to taste and heat through, stirring.
  • Swirl in sour cream and serve immediately, topped with pickle strips and parsley.
  • Note: The cookbook suggests serving the beef with rice and a salad of mixed greens.
