Joyce Lamont's Ground Beef Stroganoff

Total Time

My grandma Lorraine Stromgren would listen to WCCO Radio's Joyce Lamont as she broadcasted a daily recipe. My grandma would sit by the radio with pencil in hand to write down those recipe favorites! A cookbook was published in 1979 after 10 years of recipes being broadcasted. Of over 2,000 recipes that had been broadcasted, the cookbook has the recipes that were the listeners' favorites. "Inexpensive, but gourmet fare!"

I'm glad you had this one on Zaar. I made this last night did not add the almonds (didn't have any) and did not use brandy. We all enjoyed this very much and will most certainly make again. Thanks for posting!

This is a 5 star recipe to mom said 3 star, dad said 6 star, and my son "said it's good, mommy, but I thought we were having sketty." So, with their picky natures....5 indeed!

I did make some fairly big changes. I didn't use brandy, because I don't cook with alcohol. I made a big assumption that by brandy, I should sub grape juice. I diluted it a bit in case it was wrong. I used it to add moisture when frying the onions...only way my son will eat it. I added some finely chopped broc. stems, which I get away with with my son, by calling it herbs. :D Didn't use as much mushrooms as called for, because I can only get away with about 1/2.
