I've always loved any kind of stroganoff -- it's one of my comfort foods. This is my go-to recipe. I generally make it with ground beef, because it is a little more forgiving in the cooking: leftovers tend to be a little dry when you use stew meat or stir-fry beef. You can also substitute chicken and chicken broth, or go vegetarian and use just mushrooms and vegetable broth!
