READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Caroline Cooks

Easy, fast, and delicious! Basically from the Food Network, "Calling All Cooks", I've modified somewhat. Dimetri is the featured chef; his comment was"...Stroganoff is Russian COMFORT food, like Meat Loaf to Americans." Thanks to Dimetri for this great recipe! Try it, bet you and yours will love this rich sauce! (Will post photo when published.)

This was simple and good. I added a table spoon of hot Hungarian paprika to my dredging flour and doubled the mushrooms. I also cooked it in a pressure cooker 20 minutes and used a large chuck steak instead of sirloin.
