Glad to see that your recipe finally got published, Cindy! I grew up with Mom making something like this when I was little, so this is total comfort food. Sometimes, I'll change the ingredients up and instead of beef broth and milk, I use lemon-lime soda. This is also good with a mixture of Campbell's french onion soup, Campbells beef broth and cream of mushroom soup. I also use fresh mushrooms, whatever I have on hand. If I think of it, sometimes I'll add a few spices, a bay leaf or two. It's really good. This is also very adaptable for the crockpot. Just brown the meat like the recipe states, then layer it in the crockpot with the other ingredients. I like this best over mashed potatoes but my boys like it best over steamed rice.
The meat was very tender, but the sauce was fairly bland. I used more meat than the recipe called for and there was still way too much sauce. The only thing that made this special was that I served it over spaetzle. Sorry, but I won't be making this again.
While this is certainly not a 'fancy' recipe I'm giving it a five because of the ingredient/result ratio. This is an excellent 'poor man's stroganoff'. You get the same flavor as using a more expensive meat cut, but the seasoning and the slow simmer allow you to use stew meat and get a tender and flavorful result. The gravy cooks down beautifully and is nice and beefy without being overly salty. I used a bit more of the seasonings than was called for (personal taste) and also used an 8 oz package of fresh baby bellas instead of canned mushrooms. I followed the cooking directions faithfully and this turned out beautifully. Thanks Cindy!
Cindy, what an awesome recipe! Made this over the week-end and it was a great hit. I added some sour cream at the end and served it over egg noodles. My family loved it. Thank you so much for the great recipe that will be a regular at my house time and again.
Tons of flavor + easy = 100% awesome! I did mine in the slow cooker. Don't skip the pan frying! It really keeps the juice locked into your stew meat and helps hold the pieces together over the 7-8 hour cooking time (on low).
Wow, I am finally published!!! Check out this great recipe.. makes me so happy! The picture that is added right now by me is from tat2whttrsh aka Lambchop's Mom (thank you so much tat!)
Ahhh-MaZinG! Thanx for sharing such a great comfort food recipe. I simplified by using the crockpot after browning the meat.
This was great. I didn't have any mushrooms so I left them out. Next time I think I'm going to try using a homemade soup mix instead of the cream of mushroom but that's just a personal preference of trying to not eat prepackaged food. Thank so much Cindy!
