Beef Stroganoff

I’m sure you all have your holiday fruit cakes started, so we’ll take a dip into another comfort food from my childhood: beef stroganoff. I remember having this dish and my mother served it over noodles, although I liked my noodles plain and on the side. I also have a distinct memory of asking my mother to make stroganoff and of her telling me it was too fattening for us. I loved my mother’s cooking and it shows, heh.

I can confidently say that I’ve never used marjoram in the past, so maybe I’ll make this recipe and cross that spice off my “unused” list.

Beef Stroganoff (Bingham Collection)

1 1/2 lbs gr meat or steak

4 tbsp butter

1/2 c chopped onions

2 tsp dry mustard

1 (10 1/2 oz) can condensed bouillon

2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1/2 pt sour cream

  1. I just going through my e-mail inbox and discovered I had flagged this. Guess with cooler weather coming up (it is coming, isn’t it?) I should find a good stroganoff recipe since Grant loves it. Have you made this one yet and is it worth it?
