  1. Silky , smooth and velvety sauce poured over buttery egg noodles and served with a salad along side ! This was perfect on a cool fall day !!! I used the ketchup (out of tomato paste) and the sauce was the best we have had in a long time ! Thank You for sharing your recipe Caryn !
  2. This is my FAVORITE recipe from this cookbook that I have in paperback that I inherited from my Mother. This is a hit every time!!
  3. This is a very good recipe to use as a base for this dish. We then used fresh mushrooms, less onion and sour cream, and more beef broth. Also, we mixed a teaspoon of concentrated tomato paste with a drop or two of worchestershire sauce and some beef broth (to make it easier to blend in), but then added it to taste and didn't use it all. DH can be pretty fussy about this type of food, but even he loved it! Thanks for the recipe, Caryn. KK
  4. my husband fell in love with this, he asks me to make it all the time. i do serve it with mash instead of noodles, but its lovely. it's better than resturant stroganoff.
  5. We have nearly the same recipe, also from a Better Homes & Gardens cookbook, except our version uses fresh mushrooms and sherry instead of white wine. It is my husband's favourite meal. True comfort food!


  1. This was delicious. I used rump steak as that is all I had, browned it in the frying pan with onions and fresh mushrooms. I didn't have any beef stock so I used beef gravy mix (Bisto) and boiling water instead of the extra butter and flour and stock. I just sprinkled the dry gravy mix over the meat mixture, combined well and then poured on some boiling water. I don't use alcohol so I added some balsamic vinegar and I used ketchup instead of the tomato paste like you suggested in the intro. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. It was quick, easy and most delicious! I know I will make this again! Thanks!
  2. I liked the ease of this recipe.I did substitute fresh mushrooms for the canned,and added basil and black pepper.Delicious!


I live in to Jacksonville, FL with my husband, 2 daughters (17 and 11), 4 cats, and 2 dogs. My favorite things to make are cookies/bars and pound cakes. I have had a great time cooking since discovering Recipezaar January 2002. This is a picture of my youngest cat, Lily. She is my sweet sweet little baby.
