Very Special Beef Stroganoff and Poppy Seed Noodles

Recipe by ejdowa

This is my version of Cleora Butlers Beef Stroganoff. Cleora cooked for my husbands family when his mother was a child in Tulsa Oklahoma. When I think about this very special yummy meal, my mouth waters. Use fresh ingredients. It's well worth the time and effort. Makes wonderful leftovers.

Love this! The taste buds are dancing! The beef was perfect with the noodles. We're mushroom fans so I added a few more than what was called for. Very much a comfort food. Needed a extra large skillet to cook it in. Thank you ejdowa and Cleora for this recipe.
