If you can get the best cut of meat at the resonable price that is the way to go, but for my family (7) plus price of kosher meat it is never reasonable, so I usualy end up with some cheap cut.

Just curious Charlie, what do you do for the sour cream to keep it kosher?

Beef Stroganoff may have started out as a Russian recipe but it is now popular over most of the world with many variations, so IMO there is no longer any single correct recipe for this dish. About all we can say for sure is that it requires beef, requires sour cream, and is usually served over something (noodles, fried potatoes, mashed potatoes, rice...). Anything after that is IMO regional and individual preferences.

Hi amy. Welcome to DC.

If this is a Stroganov recipe, there should be sour cream.

There is a vegan product made out of soy. A far cry from real thing, but works with the right amount of seasoning.

By all means, add some sour cream if you like. The creamy potato soup replaces the sour cream for this recipe. If it's not an official stroganov recipe then I guess it can be an imitation stroganov because it tastes just like it. I often add beef broth if I want the sauce a little thinner. I'm sure sour cream will give the same creamy result but just more of it :)

The mouth feel of creamy potato soup is very little like that of sour cream, even if you ignore the fact that sour cream tastes sour and potato soup doesn't.

However there is no official or standard Beef Stroganoff recipe. Anybody is free to do their own interpretation of this or any other recipe, and the only really important thing is that they and their guests enjoy whatever was served.

Actually mixture of cream and potato soup sound interesting for me, becasue of kashrut issues. I may have to try it. Of course first i would have to learn how to make potato soup.
