This recipe is one of our favorites. Its a Brazilian traditional dish, easy to make, and result is yummy! Anyway, there is also a chicken version of it, which of course, is only by replacing the beef for chicken, but having tried both, the beef is the winner! I have another type chicken recipe for it which I will post later on, but for now, you definitely should try this, NOW.
4 tbsp of butter
1kg of file Mignon cut in thin strips
2 chopped onions
Half tsp of salt
Pinch of black pepper
200gr of sliced mushroom - you can use either in can or fresh, I like fresh more
3 medium sized tomatoes - peeled and chopped, you need to remove the seeds as well
2 tbsp of ketchup
1 tbsp of mustard
1 can of Nestle cream
1/2 cup fresh cream
Add the remaining tbsp of butter and fry the onion. Once browned add the beef again. Season with the salt and pepper. Add sliced mushroom, and cook for 5 minutes. Then add the diced tomatoes + ketchup + mustard, mix and cook for 8 minutes at low heat. Then finally add the Nestle cream and fresh cream and mix, 2 minutes and turn off heat. Keep the strogonoff pan closed to cook by itself.
Serve with white rice and chips strips (like the ones in the picture can be found at the chips section in the supermarket - in Brazil they are called batata-palha).
