Classic beef Stroganoff

    15 min

    Stroganoff is a wonderful last-minute dish for guests; it is rich and creamy, but is simply and quickly prepared. Traditionally it is served with a rice pilaf, but is equally good over egg noodles.

    Something else. I gave this recipe an excellent rating because with a little modifying- Sue's recipe is just the start of a terrific stroganoff. * Substitute veg. oil for butter * I used a sirloin steak. I partially froze it to make slicing strips thin and easy. * Fresh mushrooms are a must!! Crimini will do. * A splash of dry sherry adds wonderful depth of flavour *Beef stock will remove the coveted brown bits from bottom of the pan. *225ml of soured cream is sufficient *Add Paprika, freshly grated black pepper & salt to season dish to perfection. My food critics, a husband and five kids, loved it. Thank you, Sue for the beginnings of a mouth-watering dinner.  -  24 Jul 2008


    Used different ingredients. This recipe does not do Stroganoff any justice. It is supposed to be a dish for Russian royalty! Use evenly cut fillet steak strips, mushrooms, shallots, paprika,salt, brandy, butter and soured cream.  -  02 Nov 2010


    Altered ingredient amounts. Add some mushrooms. I also like to put a little brandy to the steak and ignite before adding the cream, just for the extra flavour  -  24 Jan 2009
