I had just returned from the hospital after surgery and needed to reassure my kids that everything was, thank G-d, alright. We needed comfort food in a big way. We had some beef waiting for me in the fridge, and I wanted something utterly wholesome and natural, but still yummy. Stroganoff sang to me. We don't mix meat and dairy in my house, and I don't like using cans of soup concentrate, so I had to be a little creative. This was the result; a big hit. It is creamy, light, delicious. I am putting it on Zaar so I don't forget to make it in the future. Hope you enjoy it too.
