beef stroganoff

This is a recipe my mom used to make, and the family has always enjoyed it. Perhaps "Southern" in style, but technically, it's a Russian dish. I won't vouch for how Russian my version is though! It's easy to make in whatever amount you choose, and ingredient amounts are flexible as well. Any steak sort will work, including cheaper round steak. Some like it with a little onion, though we prefer it without. If you want that, perhaps a half cup finely chopped and added with the mushrooms, or just a dash or two of onion powder, if you prefer. Nice and filling dish, great for cooler nights.

Ingredients For beef stroganoff

  • 4 lb
  • 1 pkg
    white mushrooms
  • 8 oz
    sour cream
  • 16 oz
    egg noodles, uncooked
  • 1-2 tsp
    black pepper
  • 1 dash
  • 1 c

How To Make beef stroganoff

  • bite-sized steak pieces
    Cut steak into bite-sized pieces, trimming off excess fat.
  • chopped white mushrooms
    Wash mushrooms, and chop into small pieces.
  • flour and cornstarch mix for coating the steak
    In a medium bowl, blend the flour and cornstarch. You can use just flour but it takes a little longer to thicken.
  • browning breaded steak
    Coat the steak in flour, and brown in vegetable oil in a large skillet.
  • added mushrooms, covered in water
    Once the meat is browned through, add the mushrooms, and cover with water. Add a dash of salt and pepper to taste. I use a decent amount of pepper, but it's a personal preference.

    While this cooking, boil water for egg noodles. When they are done, drain and add in around a tablespoon of stick butter/margarine, and stir so they don't get sticky.
  • piping hot stroganoff
    Stir the stroganoff occasionally as it cooks. When thickened, remove from heat and stir in sour cream. Serve over egg noodles.
