Mom’s Beef Stroganoff

One of my husband’s favorite meals is beef stroganoff. Like most everything else I cook, I use my mom’s recipe. When the boys were younger they weren’t fond of stroganoff, but that changed. I made it tonight and Bill had to go to a meeting. “I’ll eat when I get back home,” he said.

Not a good idea when there are so many boys around. If I hadn’t hid him a plate in the microwave he wouldn’t have gotten any!

What to buy at the store…

one package wide egg noodles

two or three large sirloin steaks boneless (it takes this for a large family, a smaller one could use less)

one can mushroom soup

one large carton of sour cream (I use fat free)

one package dry onion soup mix

What you do….

Brown your steak and chop into bite sizes

put it in cast iron skillet, sprinkle dry onion soup mix and then pour can of mushroom soup over meat

Cover with alumninum foil and put in oven on 350

bake 45 minutes

Boil noodles and drain

Take skillet out of oven and set on stove eye on medium

Add sour cream and stir and mix it all up

When it’s mixed well and bubbled a little spoon over noodles

Feeds four normal people….I have to add more and then hide a plate in the microwave because I feed an army!

I served it tonight with garlic bread and broccoli and cheese

    I cooked this last night using Elk steak rather than beef. Purely because we didn’t have any beef steak. And I didn’t have any onion soup, so I used ranch dip mix. It was a huge hit at our little gathering! We fed 6 adults and one very picky almost-two-year-old, with enough left overs for lunch today! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Sounds yummy!! We used to buy the packaged noodles romanoff when we were in the military. Used it for a fast meal after work. Use chicken, tuna or hamburger. We’ve not used it for years. One time I decided to buy it for old times sake. It was ok but after eating less packaged meals and more homemade, we couldn’t believe we actually liked the stuff back then! Memories! Thanks!
