This recipe came from a friend of my mom. Her friend indicated that the recipe came through her family via a farm in Iowa. Use the larger amount of sour cream for a richer sauce. I serve the sauce over egg noodles.

We liked this just fine but my family said it didn't taste like stroganov. It had a creamy tomato flavor which made it taste more like a tomato soup than stroganov. It could use some more spices to give it more flavor and with the long cook time it's just not a must make for my family. Oh, I did cook it for 1 1/2 hours and the beef was tender.
