Well, I haven't even recorded how I make Beef Stroganoff. So, I'm going to try to remember how I made it last time.

1 Beef round steak, partially frozen and cut into thin strips
salt and pepper to taste
vegetable oil
4 oz sliced mushrooms
1/2 c finely diced onions
1/2 t garlic, minced
one can Cream of Mushroom soup
1 1/2 c milk, or to taste
1/2 t worcestershire, or to taste
1 bay leaf
sour cream, to taste
Hot cooked rice or pasta

Heat a large skillet with the oil. Season the steak strips with the salt and pepper. Brown the beef, in batches if needed. Remove and keep warm. Add the mushrooms, onions, and garlic, with a little more oil if needed, and saute until the onions begin to turn translucent. Add the milk, cream of mushroom soup, worcestershire, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil while whisking smooth. Add the beef, cover, and simmer for 30 minutes. When done, add sour cream to taste. Check the seasoning. Serve over cooked rice or pasta.

Sizz, I'm not sure if it would freeze well. I've never attempted to freeze it, as it always gets eaten, since I'm feeding 6 right now. Once Ellie starts on solid food, I'm going to have to increase my yields (again).

This is how I make mine....

1-2 pounds Stew meat, cut in to thin pieces
2 TBS butter
1 1/2 cups beef broth ( home made is better but, I use canned)
3 cloves garlic , chopped( recipe calls for one but...one is never enough)
1 tsp salt
10 oz sliced fresh button mushrooms ( can use canned if you want)
3/4 cup onion, diced into medium sized squares
3 TBS flour
1 cup sour cream
2 TBS catsup
2 TBS worestshire sauce


Cook and stir beef in 2 TBS butter until browned
Reserve 1/3 cup of the beef broth.
Stir remaining broth, catsup, worestshire sauce,garlic and salt in with the meat.
Heat to boiling
reduce heat and cover and simmer until beef is tender. ( about 90 minutes)

Stir in mushrooms and onions. Cover and simmer until onion is tender.
Shake reserved broth and flour in tightly covered container, stir slowly in to beef mixture. Heat to boiling, stirring all the time. Boil and stir for one more minute and then reduce heat. Stir in Sour cream and heat through.

Serve over rice or wide noodles.

Thanks AllenMI.........I think I'll just plan on making the whole batch and leaving myself out enough for several helpings and take the rest to a friends house for them to enjoy also.

Thanks everyone else for your recipes also.........they sound delicious!

Try this variation. Add sour cream for the last step, 30 minute simmering, the meat becomes super tender.

30 minutes after you add the sour cream?

The last step in the original recipe is "30 minute simmer..." so you add sour cream and simmer the meat for that 30 minute period already with the sour cream.
