Beef Stroganoff

Julia Ferguson


My mother use to make this when I was a kid. I absolutely love it, but the hubs, not so much. He would rather eat a hamburger instead of something with sour cream in it.
My mom always served it over fluffy white rice.

This recipe is from a cookbook my mother used often. Margaret Mitchell's Mealtime Magic Meat and Poultry Cookery, published by Wear Ever, copyright 1951
