i use a very easy recipe. here it is. round steak cut into pieces, small container of sour cream, one envelope of onion soup mix, sliced or whole canned mushrooms w/ juice, 2/3 c water.
brown the meat with a little oil in a pan. add the soup mix, water and mushrooms w/juice. simmer covered for one hour or until meat is tender. fold in the sour cream before serving.
this is so easy and very tasty!!!

My mom's recipe for stroganoff is my very most favorite in the world. Purists turn up their noses at a stroganoff recipe that doesn't get its color from paprika, but despite its lack of that essential element, this meal tastes like home to me.

Beef Stroganoff

1 1/2 lb lean beef, cut in strips
Salt & pepper
2 T butter
1 c. sliced mushrooms
1 medium onion, sliced
2 T flour
2 c. beef broth
3 T sherry
2 T tomato paste
1 t. dry mustard
2/3 c. sour cream

Dust the meat strips with the salt & pepper and set aside in the fridge for a few hours.

Melt butter in a large skillet and saute the mushrooms until they start to sweat. Remove mushrooms from pan.

Place sliced onion in pan and saute until golden. Remove from pan.

Add a bit more butter and brown the beef strips on all sides, working with small amounts at a time. Remove from pan.

Add the flour to the pan and stir/brown in the butter to make a light roux. Add beef broth and stir until thick. Add sherry, tomato paste and dry mustard and blend well.

Then put the mushrooms, onions and beef all back into the pan and simmer for 20 minutes. Five minutes before serving, stir in the sour cream.

Serve over noodles or riced potatoes.

What makes a big difference in any strog recipe is to up the grade of meat from round steak to a sirloin or tenderloin etc. The cheaper cuts are tough and not as tasty no matter how much delicious sauce is on it.

NOT TRUE!! the round steak will get very tender if you simmer it on low long enough. and because you're simmering it with the onion soup mix the flavors get in the meat and it's quite good. and if you're on a budget, you can't beat it!!

OK, its better if you are on a budget, but I will take the sirloin over round any day.
