"This is a fairly lean version of beef stroganoff, as most recipes call for more cream. This is something you can easily adjust to your tastes. I like a little thicker version, with just enough sauce to coat the meat and noodles." — Chef John

salt and pepper to taste

1 1/2 tablespoons

I cannot afford beef chuck roast right now, I used beef stew meat instead. I also did not have creme fraiche, I used sour cream instead. You could not tell that I used beef stew meat, the meat turned out very tender and juicy. My family all said that this is their favorite stroganoff yet. I served the boys' portions over buttered egg noodles, I ate my portion over steamed garlic broccoli as I'm trying to watch my carb intake.
I followed this recipe exactly and I was very disappointed. I've been making the Betty Crocker classic beef stroganoff recipe for years, but thought I whould try a more sophisticated recipe. Well, this is one of those times that I was wrong. Very shallow flavor, I'll go back to Betty.
My family loved this! I didn't have time to make creme fraiche so I used sour cream. Next time I would like to make it using the creme fraiche. Don't forget to butter your noodles. This is so much better than my recipe using cream of mushroom soup. Highly recommend! You will not be disappointed.
I can't believe no one's rated this yet. I've made this a few times and I love it! I buy mushrooms with this in mind. I don't always use exact measurements, but kind of eyeball it. It is soooooo good!!
Fantastic and very easy. I bought and used the creme fraiche because I wanted to try this just as the Chef wrote it, but I think in the future I will use sour cream. I didn't like the runny consistancy that I got with creme fraiche. The flavor of the dish is absolutely perfect!
Fabulous Recipe.. make as written you cant go wrong. Creme Fraiche seals the deal! Cant wait for company to make it again.. Thanks
OMG this was to die for yes it is that good and I like medium noodles it was awesome like all your recipes I also so made your molten lava cake for after dinner well the hubby would nott stop eating it sohe had no room for dessert and he loves dessert but he loved the stroganoff more I was very suprised the power of meat and noddles and yes I made my own creme fraiche come on people it is so easy to make save your money and make it
Wonderful stroganoff. I used sirloin steak since that's what I had on hand, but a chuck roast would certainly work fine too since it's slow simmered for awhile. It was incredibly tender and the flavor was spot on. I also used red wine instead of white, since that's what I drink, and sour cream instead of creme fraiche. Served over egg noodles and scaled to serve 4 people, which 2 of us gobbled up like we hadn't eaten in years. It was THAT good. The SO said he doesn't like stroganoff but he clearly loved this one. The chives were a nice touch and I enjoy being able to use things out of our garden.
