This was a recipe my mother used to make for special occasions and around the holidays. I'm not sure where she found this but it was always a favorite and often requested. It is on the order of a stroganoff but has an incredible distinctive taste all its own - which I like to call "come back" flavor. It is great served over broad egg noodles and a nice dinner salad which is sure to impress almost any guest. People think you have been slaving in the kitchen all day but if truth be told, it is relatively easy to make and the beauty of this dish is -- it is made ahead of time and you can actually enjoy your company and not spend all your time, last minute, in the kitchen cooking. I suggest you use and electric skillet/dutch oven if you have one since you have a more even heat control. If not, this still can be done on top of the stove with a little closer monitoring so it doesn't burn. Hope you enjoy as much as we have.
