When I was a youngster both my parents worked full time.Since they were so busy, many nights we had quick weeknight meals of the boxed variety. One of my favorites for years and years was Beef Stroganoff. I loved the meat flavors with the egg noodles, and that creamy gravy. Although it was out of a box, it was one of the meals I always looked forward to.
A few weeks back I had bought some boneless top sirloin roast steak and I’ve already posted one recipe that I made them with, this is the other. I’ve been wanting to try to make my own Beef Stroganoff for a while now, and figured this would be a great time! Of course I typically make most things myself, so I’ve done some studying through the years on how to make an authentic stroganoff. Well, there was no time like the present, and it was a hit! This is a great, hearty meal, and the man in your life will love it.
Now, for those that may not know what Beef Stroganoff is, here is a definition I found on dictionary.com
[straw-guh-nawf, stroh–] noun, Cookery.
And that’s basically it! There’s many variety and techniques, but that’s the beauty (and art) of creating dishes, there are so many approaches to making one single dish. It’s all in the interpretation. This is why I love to cook! Something about seeing single, simple ingredients come together to make a sauce, or icing, pudding, whatever it is. It makes you feel so powerful! And knowing that you are feeding something you created to your family, the most important people in your lives. That’s pretty powerful stuff! Hope you enjoy.

Like you I grew up the same, parents at work and whatever from a box for dinner. And maybe once in a while it would get dressed up with some frozen vegetable thrown in. I look forward to trying your Beef Stroganoff recipe it looks really good.

This is almost identical to what we used to make when we I was a kid. We used the sour cream to make our sauce. I remember loving this recipe. Thanks for the trip down memory lane, I have some beef in the fridge, might just make this tomorrow 🙂

Thank you for posting this recipe. My mom used to make this from scratch. I was just asking her the other day if she had the recipe and she cant find it. I will try yours. If you like this type of dish you should try beef burgundy. You might like it. Have a good week!
