Stroganoff is a flavorful dish that typically includes beef and a creamy mushroom sauce. This version swaps the beef for pork loin steaks and uses some unconventional ingredients with flavorful results. It may sound like an odd combination, but Lambrusco wine, yellow mustard, and sour cream give amazing dimension to the mushroom sauce.

If you don't cook with wine, substitute beef or chicken broth but be aware that it will lack a bit of depth. Serve the quick and easy dish over noodles or as a main entree with more Lambrusco. If you do not eat pork, substitute beef loin with equally satisfying results.

  • If you substitute steaks for the pork, cook the steaks to just below your desired doneness (preferably medium-rare or medium). Add at the end just to warm through.
  • If you don't have Lambrusco, try substituting another red wine.
