"Stroganoff is a wonderful dish for guests; it is rich and creamy, but is simply and quickly prepared. Traditionally it is served with a rice pilaf, but is equally good over plain rice or egg noodles." — Sue Kerr

I gave this recipe an excellent rating because with a little modifying- Sue's recipe is just the start of a terrific stroganoff.
* Substitute veg. oil for butter
* I used a sirloin steak. I partially froze it to make slicing strips thin and easy.
* Fresh mushrooms are a must!! Baby bellas or crimini will do.
* A splash of dry sherry adds wonderful depth of flavor
*Beef broth will remove the coveted brown bits from bottom of skillet.
*8 oz of sour cream is sufficient
*Add Paprika, freshly grated black pepper & kosher salt to season dish to perfection.
My food critics, a husband and five kids loved it. Even the vegetarian high school senior loved the mushroom loaded sauce. Thank you, Sue for the beginnings of a mouth-watering dinner.
DO NOT use Fat Free Sour Cream!
One of my favorite quick dinners, so much better than overpowering good beef with cream of mushroom soup! I saute mushrooms along with the beef and onions and add 1/2 teaspoon of paprika before adding the sour cream. 16 oz of sour cream is too much however, I think 8 oz is about right. Make sure you don't overcook the beef and be very carefull after adding the sour cream, if you bring it to a boil it will curdle, just let it warm up and serve immediately.
I thought this recipe was great!! Only change I made was that I added 2 big scoops of sour cream instead of the whole container. Thanks,Sue!!!!
I have made another stroganoff from this site and it was amazing...and this one just didn't wow me like the other did. It turned out very runny and truly didn't taste very well. All the same, thanks for posting.
I followed every instruction and would NEVER make this again. The sauce did not turn out very smooth. My advice is this - do not try to make a stroganoff dish without the cream of mushroom soup!
It WAS easy....but it turned out quite soupy. Once I put the sour cream in, it never got creamy. I wouldn't make this again.
I recently made this dish for my husband and my self. Neither one of us enjoyed it. It tasted like you were eating a tub of sour cream. I would not make this dish again.
