  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 7 ounces cremini mushrooms sliced
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 pound extra lean ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1/2 cup sour cream (full fat)
  • Salt & pepper to taste


  • Add the oil and butter to a skillet over medium-high heat. Once the pan is hot, add the mushrooms and onions. Sauté, stirring occasionally, for about 7-10 minutes or until the water has been released from the mushrooms and it cooks off and they get a nice sear. Remove the mushrooms/onions from the pan and set aside.
  • Add the ground beef to the skillet and cook it until browned (about 8 minutes), breaking it up with your spoon as you go along. Once the beef starts cooking a bit, stir in the garlic. If there's a lot of excess fat (there shouldn't be if you used very lean beef), spoon most of it out once the meat is done browning.
  • Sprinkle the flour over the beef and stir it in. Let it cook for about a minute (stir it a few times).
  • Add in the Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, and broth, and cook for another 1-2 minutes, stirring until the flour & mustard have dissolved and it's heated through (also be sure to scrape the bits from the bottom of the pan). I like to add more Worcestershire sauce and Dijon mustard than suggested, but I left it fairly mild on purpose so you can easily build on the flavors if needed.
  • Add the mushrooms and onions back to the pan (stir them in).
  • Take the pan off the heat and stir in the sour cream. Season with salt & pepper as needed. Serve immediately over buttered egg noodles, mashed potatoes, or rice.


  • If the sauce ever gets too thick (like when you're reheating it), add a splash more beef broth or even a dollop more sour cream.
  • This is the cast iron Le Creuset pan I use. Any skillet is fine, but I do love the sear you can easily get with cast iron.
