  • 10 ounces beef round steak
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 onion - chopped
  • 1 clove garlic - minced
  • 1 can (10 oz) cream of mushroom soup
  • ½ teaspoon paprika (not spicy)
  • 1 cup sour cream (see below Tips)
  • ½ pound noodles - precooked
  • salt and pepper


  • Slice beef across the grain into very thin slices.
  • Boil the beef in water (about a cup) in low heat for at least 30 minutes or until it is tender.
  • In a skillet over medium heat, cook onion and garlic in butter until tender. Add beef and cook until browned.
  • Pour in the soup and paprika. Cook for 2-3 minutes stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Add sour cream and mix. Add salt & pepper as desired.
  • Serve over noodles.


Freeze beef before cooking to make slicing or cutting easier.
Instead of a can of cream of mushroom, you may use the powdered mushroom soup by dissolving 3 tbsp in a cup of water. This is usually already salted so no need to add more.
You may also add Champignon mushrooms after step 2 if desired.
This has a hint of a sour taste because of the sour cream, but for others who prefer it to be creamy but not sour, then use Cream cheese (Frischkäse) instead. Or just use All-purpose Cream (Sahne) and add it together with the soup.
