Beef Stroganoff

2 pounds beef tenderloin
Butter or margarine
1 tablespoon flour
1 cup beef stock or bouillon
½ pint sour cream
3 tablespoons tomato paste
¼ cup grated onion
1 teaspoon salt
⅛ teaspoon pepper

Cut the beef in ¼ inch slices with a sharp knife. Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large saucepan. Add and stir in the flour. Cook and stir, over low heat, until mixture bubbles and is smooth. Slowly add and stir in the beef stock. Cook and stir until the mixture begins to thicken, then boil 2 minutes. Add sour cream alternately with tomato paste, a little at a time, stirring constantly. Simmer mixture, without boiling, about 10 minutes, stirring often.

Meanwhile heat 3 tablespoons more butter in a large skillet. Add the beef and brown well, turning to brown evenly. Add the onion, salt and pepper. Cook 10 minutes longer, stirring occasionally. Add the meat mixture to the cream mixture and simmer 3 to 5 minutes longer. If desired, serve the Beef Stroganoff with Kasha (buckwheat groats) or rice. Makes 6 servings.
