Beef Stroganoff or Beef Stroganov is a Russian dish of sautéed pieces of beef served in a sauce with smetana. From its origins in mid-19th-century Russia, it has become popular around the world, with considerable variation from the original recipe.

Here is one way that it can be done:


1⁄2 cup minced onion

1 cup sour cream

1 garlic clove, minced

1⁄4 cup butter

1 lb ground beef

2 tablespoons flour

1 teaspoon salt

1⁄4 teaspoon pepper

canned mushroom stems and pieces, 2-3 cans, drained

1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup (I always use the top name brand)

1 (12 ounce) bag egg noodles, cooked


Sauté onion and garlic in butter over medium heat.

Stir in ground beef and brown stir in flour, salt, mushrooms, and pepper cook 5 minutes, then stir in soup. Simmer uncovered 10 minutes.

Stir in sour cream until heated. Serve over noodles.
