  • 4 green onions
  • 8 ounces boneless beef sirloin steak
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms

  • 1 cup halved and thinly sliced yellow summer squash and/or zucchini
  • 3 cups fat-free milk
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoons light sour cream

Slice green onions, keeping white parts separate from green tops. Set green tops aside. Trim fat from meat. Cut meat into 1-inch pieces.

Using a slotted spoon, remove meat from saucepan.
Add mushrooms and white portions of the green onions; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add broth and salt; bring to boiling. Add potatoes. Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 to 12 minutes or just until potatoes are tender. Stir in squash.
In a medium bowl, whisk together 1 cup of the milk and the flour until smooth; add to potato mixture. Add the remaining 2 cups milk. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Return meat to saucepan. Cook and stir for 1 minute more.
