Great beef stroganoff recipe. Yummy served over egg noodles, or whatever you please! At our house this recipe has a bit of a legacy. When my husband and I were just dating. we were having dinner at my parent's house--beef stroganoff. My husband leaned over and whispered (please note, this is a man who doesn't whisper well :)) "This looks like dog food"! Can you believe it, anyways, my mom heard and thank goodness she has a sense of humor. But to this day, my dear, dear husband has not lived it down!

I'm not rating this because I didn't find the instructions quite clear and the beef was still tough. I think I should have disregarded step 2. The sauce was very tasty. When I make the recipe again, cooking the beef longer, I'll come back and rate the recipe.
