I just LOVE beef stroganoff! The recipe I use is from an old compilation of recipes, "Among Pork Chops and Other Things, Navy Supply Officer's Wives Cookbook, Vol II" and was my grandmother's book. This poor old spiral bound book is falling apart, but has the very best recipes in it! This recipe was submitted by Judi Kern from Charleston, SC. Thank you to Judi, wherever you are now!
Beef Stroganoff (Old Time tweaks in parentheses)
1 1/2 lb round steak (or beef cubes or ground beef)
1/4 cup butter (or tallow)
4 oz can mushrooms (I use 8 oz fresh mushrooms sliced)
1/2 cup chopped onion (1 small onion is fine)
1 clove garlic -minced (I like a big one or 2 medium)
12 or 13 oz beef broth
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup flour
dash of salt & pepper
Cut beef into thin strips and dust with flour. In a large skillet, brown beef in butter. (If using ground beef, brown & crumble the beef then add the flour and cook about 5 more minutes until flour starts to turn to a more golden color - make sure to stir often).
Add mushrooms, onion & garlic - brown lightly. Add beef broth, salt & pepper. Cover and simmer about a hour stirring now & then. Stir in sour cream, cook over low heat for 5 minutes.
Serve over egg noodles, rotini, rice, baked potatoes or biscuits. YUM!!
Here is a good recipe for homemade egg noodles!
