Healthified Beef Stroganoff

While desperately searching for something delicious and not uber fattening to cook for my darling husband I came across this Healthified Beef Stroganoff recipe on Eat Better America. The recipe was pretty simple and J went as far as to say it was "the best thing you've ever made." Not so sure about that...but it was delicious. 
Here's the recipe and, of course, I am sharing it on Pinterest as well. 

-1 1/2 lb. boneless beef sirloin steak {I just used stew beef, cutting raw meet grosses me out}
-2 tsp. Canola Oil
-1 large White Onion
-1 tsp. finely chopped garlic
-2 cups Beef Broth {I used Low Sodium Progresso}
-4 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
-1 tsp. Dried Basil Leaves
-1/2 tsp. Salt
-1/4 tsp. Pepper
-1/4 cup Flour
-1 Jar (4.5oz) Sliced Mushrooms {drained}
-1 tbsp. Ketchup
-1 cup reduced-fat Sour Cream
-6 cups hot cooked Egg Noodles

*Start by chopping your onion.
I really only added this as a step so I could show you this sweet picture...yes, those are onion goggles! My best friend got them for me as part of a shower gift and while they are completely nerdy, they are totally AMAZING!
I get serious eye-watering-issues while onion chopping but these bad boys block it out completely. 

*If you get a sirloin, cut the beef with the grain into 2-inch strips, then cut the strips against the grain into 1/8-inch slice {this is precisely why I just bought stew beef}. In a 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add beef, cook 4-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until brown.

*Add onion and garlic to skillet; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally.
whoopsies! finger! 

*Stir in 1 1/2 cups of the broth, the Worcestershire sauce, basil, salt and pepper. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is tender. 

*In a small bowl, mix flour and remaining 1/2 cup of broth with wire whisk until blended. 

*Add mixture to skillet. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir for 1 minute. 

*Stir in mushrooms and ketchup; cook until thoroughly heated, stirring occasionally. 

*Remove from heat and stir in sour cream until well blended. 

*Serve over warm noodles.
