Notes from the Test Kitchen:
Paired with a nice red wine and you have a meal fit for a king or a queen! Hearty, creamy and so flavorful. This impressive dish would be awesome to serve to dinner guests or as Dee said, for Fathers Day.

I used sirloin in this recipe as Filet Mignon wasn't available, but I can imagine it would put this Stroganoff over the top!
