Stroganoff (1953)

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Chocolatl

This is one of a number of historical recipes I am posting from my cookbook collection. It is adapted from the 1953 edition of Adventures in Good Cooking, by traveling salesman and food critic Duncan Hines, and featuring recipes collected from around the USA. This is his own recipe. I believe that this would be better if the sour cream were added at the very end and not allowed to boil, but have posted it as he made it. He suggests serving this with rice and buttered Melba toast, but I prefer egg noodles.

Wonderful beef stroganoff!! I made this with a couple of changes, based on what I had on hand. I used a good sized piece of top sirloin and used a combination of water and "Better then Beef Bouillon" for the consomme, otherwise, followed as written. Served it over some egg noodles along with fresh corn on the cob and blueberry muffins for one wonderful dinner!!! Thanks for sharing this great recipe. Made for "Cake Pops on Parade" for the Culinary Quest Event.
