This is the perfect meal to serve for Fathers Day or any other special occasion. This has always been a winner with my family. This recipe has been in our family for more than 80 years.

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! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
