I am working with a small budget and trying to stretch my money so I used a cheaper cut of meat--stew meat--in place of the beef loin steak. Because I used the cheaper cut of meat, I had to let it simmer a while so it would become tender. I sauteed the mushrooms, onions and meat until browned (adding fresh ground pepper), then added the other ingredients, brought it up to a boil, then covered and reduced heat and let it simmer for an hour or so. I left out the lemon juice because I was a little skeptical only because I didn't want the sauce to be too sour with the burgundy AND the lemon juice......I know.....shame on me. After tasting the stroganoff, I added a teaspoon of dried basil and dried oregano. I also tossed the buttered noodles with a little fresh ground pepper and some dried parsley. We really thought this was quite good, you couldn't even tell I used a cheaper cut of meat. My kids especially liked this with the buttered egg noodles. I'll make this again. NO leftovers.
