From Scratch Beef Stroganoff

I loved stroganoff as a kid, but as a working mom I found it tough to cook after work. This recipe works well with ground beef for weeknights or cubed chuck for weekends, when there’s a little more time to cook.

Yield: 4 to 6 servings


  • 2 pounds cubed or ground beef
  • flour, salt, pepper to dredge meat
  • 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 cup milk or cream
  • black ground pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 bag wide egg noodles
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine to coat noodles after they're cooked.


10 inch or larger fying pan.

Meat cubes in 1/2 inch cubes or less.

Mix flour, salt and pepper in a zippered plastic bag. Add meat and shake until well coated (or, if using ground beef, brown in skillet).

Coat frying pan with olive oil and heat until a drop of water spits. Add onion and saut

Additional Notes:

If using ground beef, adjust cooking time so tastes are blended well but meat doesn't get too dark.
