My Very Best Beef Stroganoff

READY IN: 4hrs 30mins
Recipe by HeidiSue

My good friend Melissa used to make a wonderful beef stroganoff a long time ago and all I could remember is that her secret ingredient was gingerale. I know that sounds weird, but it was very good so I came up with this recipe and it just turned out great. So easy and so good!

This was good and easy. I was afraid of the mustard - it just seemed out of place in this stroganoff. Other than that, it was fine and we liked it. Will try again without the mustard next time. Thanks, HeidiSue.
