Beef stroganoff

This started out as another Betty Crocker recipe.
I'll put my changes in red. ( sorry it's late!!!!)

1 1/2 - 2 pounds stew meat ( sometimes I use round steak)
2 tablespoons butter ( I use three)
1 1/2 cups beef broth
3 tablespoons catsup ( I some times us tomato paste instead)
1 small clove garlic minced ( I use three or four nice size cloves)
1 teaspoon salt
8 oz sliced mushrooms
1 medium onion choped ( I slice mine and use a large onion)

3 tablespoons flour
1 cup sour cream
3-4 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Brown meat in the butter.
Stir all but 1/3 cup of the beef broth in with the beef. Set the 1/3 cup to the side. ( I also add the garlic and about 1/2 cup of the onion now and the Worcestershire sauce now) Heat to boiling and then reduce heat, cover and simmer until the meat is nice and tender about 90 minutes.

Stir in mushrooms and onions.
Cover and simmer until onions are soft.
Shake reserved broth and the flour in a tightly covered jar.
Then slowly add it to the meat mixture. Heat to boiling. Sirring constantly. Cook for one more minute.

Reduce heat and stir in the sour cream.

Serve over rice or noodles.

I sometimes find that I have to add more beef broth.
The Worcestershire can me added, left out or doubled depending on your taste.

ENJOY!

I don't see why not.... I might not simmer it for the whole 90 minutes though.

This sounds so good. Unfort., DH doesn't care for Stroganoff. I've thought about making it for myself but never get around to it. Maybe once my kitchen is done and my girlfriends and I get together for a cook together day then I'll suggest we make this and pig out. Thanks pds!

Unfortunately I made this for DH once using filet mignon which was on sale really cheap at our QFC - Now he's hooked on that so he only gets this once in a blue moon!

sizz, in that case... take the portion you want to eat and add a spoon or two of the sour cream. Hubby can eat it with out. Really... it's good with and with out. ( I don't like sour cream either...ICK but I love this dish...go figure)

This recipe sounds very good, thank you! I've made beef stroganoff using hamburger and that's good, too. What I call a "hungry boys" recipe, a cheaper and faster alternative for the weary cook who needs to feed teenagers or a crowd.
