In *real* beef stroganoff, high quality beef is cut in very thin slices and simmered in red wine or sherry with mushrooms and garlic, salt and pepper. The beef is served in one dish, the sour cream in another, and the noodles in a third. Each diner layers the three separate parts according to his/her own taste. This is *not* beef stroganoff.

A friend brought me a printed copy of this recipe over a year ago and I have been making it since then!! My family loves it!! I add just a bit more sour cream but, beyond that, follow this recipe to a T!! I prefer to serve over white rice rather than noodles, though, and it gives it a different taste that highlights the sauce. Thanks for sharing!! :)

I think this is the recipe I've been looking for. My partner makes Beef Stroganoff with hamburger,and I think it's awful! His birthday is this week and I want to make this recipe to impress him. Wish me luck!

AWESOME! I made it for my boyfriend, my dad, and I. We all loved it. Used fresh mushrooms instead canned though, delicious!

pretty awesome and wholesome meal! I had never cooked stroganoff (other than hamb. helper) and this was top notch! I used fresh mushrooms and garlic and minced onions as my fresh ones had turned on me. I think the only way I can improve upon my cooking it will be to have fresh onions in it as well next time. I substituted the sirloin for top round that i had in the freezer, I think most cuts of beef would do very well with this recipe!

Best stroganoff I've ever eaten. The recipe was easy to follow and turned out great, though we liked it a bit better with a little more salt and pepper and a dash of paprika on it. I am so happy to have found a tasty stroganoff recipe that doesn't use canned "cream-of" soup!

This is a very good base recipe - quick and easy to make. I did make a couple changes. I doubled the mushrooms, added a bit more beef broth and sour cream (we like a lot of sauce), and threw in about 1/4 cup of cooking sherry. I also used 4 cloves of real garlic in place of the garlic powder. Next time I will add even more mushrooms as we really like lots.

I had onions, mushrooms and a Angus beef roast from another recipe. So I used those to make this. I only had 8 oz of beef broth so I added a little red wine to make the full amount needed. I also had to use light sour cream, as that is what I had on hand. Everyone enjoyed this so much more than the original meal I had bought the main ingredients for.

This was lovely and creamy with great flavour. The only change I made was to serve over rice as that's how I've had it my whole life! It was quick to make and came together well, I did slightly less meat as there was only 3 of us, but we like it quite saucy so it turned out perfectly!
