Ohhhhhh… sometimes I hate our internet… I had already written this cute little post with pictures and everything only to have our internet glitch and lose EVERYTHING!
So here we go again…
Today was a
bit extremely hectic and I really didn’t feel like cooking want to cook but the little humans who had been EXTREMELY loud and crazy today were really getting on my nerves and Mr. Awesome had only asked me a few times what we were having for dinner so I figured that I should probably go ahead and get dinner started.
(Those freezer meals I put together the other day were really tempting me but Mr. Awesome had already seen ‘steak’ on the menu so freezer meals were ruled out.)
The complete recipe is down below along with a link to a printable recipe. I apologize in advance as the pictures are not the greatest as our lighting is not very good in this little cabin but maybe one-day things will improve.
I always think this meal is going to take forever but it really does come together quite easily… a lot easier than this post has come together tonight.
The first thing was to grab my favorite cast iron skillet and heat the olive oil and get the meat browned:
As the meat was browning I went ahead and got the broccoli on to steam and I put on a pot water for the noodles:
Once the meat was browned I removed it from the pan and set it to the side. I added the mushrooms and onions to the pan minus the bell peppers as Mr. Awesome really doesn’t care for them too much:
Once the veggies were slightly tender I added the 1/3 cup of broth… I actually used chicken broth this time because I already had some open in the fridge.
By this time the noodles were boiling away and the broccoli was steaming. The house was really starting to smell pretty good too!
I let this simmer for about 10 minutes and then added the flour and seasonings… yours may look a little different as I don’t always measure things out exactly… I just kind of throw them in and taste it as I go.
I let this cook for another 3-4 minutes and then added the tomatoes and the remaining broth. I turned up the heat and let it come to a boil and then turned it down to a simmer.
After this simmered for about 10 minutes it was time to pull it all together so I could feed all of these starving people.
My pan was a little small, or maybe I just added too much broth as I was trying to use it all up, but I added the cooked steak and the sour cream.
Time to eat…
Mr. Jacob was ready to eat so he helped by getting the plates out for everyone.
Voila! Dinner is served…
This picture doesn’t really do it justice. I think I need to invest in a better camera… one day.
Mr. Awesome really enjoyed it and asked for seconds. He made sure to tell me that he liked this meal and that it was really good so I knew I needed to share it with everyone.
It was so good that there wasn’t anything left over for my lunch tomorrow… sniff, sniff. All in all, it took me 30-40 minutes to throw together which wasn’t really too bad.
Here’s the recipe that I promised!

Steak Paprika Over Egg Noodles
- 1 T. butter or olive oil
- 1 1/2 pounds beef sirloin steak, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
- 1/3 c. beef broth
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 large green bell pepper, cleaned and chopped (optional)
- 1 pound mushrooms, sliced
- 2 T. flour or glucomannan mixed with a little water
- 2 T. paprika
- 1 t. caraway seeds (optional)
- 1/2 t. dry mustard
- Pink Himalayan Salt and black pepper, to taste
- 1 can Italian-style diced tomatoes
- 2 c. low sodium beef broth, or use homemade broth
- 1 c. low-fat sour cream or Greek yogurt
- Cooked egg noodles or brown rice
Heat the oil or butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
Brown the beef and then remove from skillet and set aside.
In the same skillet, add the 1/3 c. of broth and quickly whisk up all of the browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
Add onion, bell peppers and mushrooms and cook for 10 minutes.
Quickly stir in flour and seasonings, cook for 3-4 more minutes.
Add the diced tomatoes and the remaining broth.
Bring this mixture to a boil, stirring constantly, reduce the heat and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes.
Add the browned beef and stir in the sour cream just before serving.
Serve hot over noodles or brown rice.
We like to eat this with some steamed veggies on the side.
