My Grandma's beef stroganoff is by far the best I've ever had. It is rich, tender, and just really delicious. In addition, it can also be very healthy. It freezes well, too. I love serving it over brown rice, with steamed broccoli on the side.
3 1/2 lb. Beef round sliced in 2"strips.
1 cup butter
6 tablespoons flour*
1 1/2 cups onions**
1 1/2 tablespoons tomato paste
2 cups water
1 1/2 cups mushrooms
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 teaspoons Worstershire sauce
2 cloves garlic
3 cubes buillion***
3/4 cup sherry
Optional: 1 1/2 cups cream and 3/4 cups sour creamBaste meat with lemon juice, roll in flour and fry in 1 cup butter until brown. Add the onions and saute until golden. Add the rest of the ingredients and cook until tender.
*I use Spelt flour and it works fine
**I leave the onions out because hubby doesn't care for onions. I think they are a wonderful addition, though.
***I make it with stock instead of water, leave out the bullion, and add a little extra salt.
