Step 2: In the same pan, add shallots to cook for a few minutes and then keep them with the meat.
Step 3: Now comes the part to cook the mushrooms. Melt another three table spoons of butter in the same skillet and increase the heat adding the mushrooms in the pan.
Step 4: Stirring occasionally, cook the mushrooms for at least 4- 6 minutes. while the mushrroms are getting ready, add some tarragon and nutmeg to the mushrooms and lower the flame.
Step 5: Now add the sour cream to the cooking mushrooms in the pan.
Step 6: If you feel that the sauce needs to be thinned then add a little water (may be two table spoons) to the pan. Make sure the sour cream gets mixed with the mushrooms properly without simmering. Now put the shallots and beef in the pan and add some pepper and salt to it.
