How To Make beef stroganoff

  • 1
    Combine 2 T. flour and salt. Cut steaks into cubes or strips. ( I like bite size pieces). Dredge meat in flour.
  • 2
    melt butter in stock pot. Brown meat, add mushrooms, onion and garlic. (my husband doesn't the pickled onions so I just use some of the juice and add 1/4th of a real onion.
  • 3
    Remove meat and mushrooms. Add the other 2 T. of butter to pan drippings. Add tomato paste. Whisk until thickened and bubbly.
  • 4
    Return meat and mushrooms. Stir in beef broth, sour cream and wine. Cook slowly on low until hot. Don't let it boil because sour cream will curdle. YOU COULD ADD SOUR CREAM AFTER YOU TAKE IT OFF THE BURNER RIGHT BEFORE SERVING IF YOU'RE WORRIED ABOUT THE SOUR CREAM CURDLING. Add tomato sauce if you need to make more gravy.

    I serve with rice. But my husband likes egg noodles. either one is fine.
