Beef Stroganoff

Andrew made this delish dish completely from scratch, he used Amy's (stepmom) recipe as a baseline but of course added a few things here and there. He promised to make me some stroganoff sunday evening right before dinner with Scott and Kirsten, and even after they made stroganoff (completely by chance) as well! Both versions the brothers concocted were spectacular but due to loyalty issues I have to take the side of Andrew, he is my husband after all!

Ingredients Included: 

1/2 onion chopped
2 tbs melted butter
1.5 lb of beef sirloin tip *or any beef really*
Sautee together and add 2 tbs of flour, cook until brown

In a separate pot add:

1/4 cup butter 
8 ounces of fresh mushrooms and 1/2 tsp of dried thyme.
Sautee mushrooms until fragrant *totally the word Andrew used* 
Then add 1/2 cup of flour continually stir until brown. 
2 cups of milk- add more if it seems to thick- then 1 1/2 tsp of chicken bouillon 
and 1/2 tsp of ground onion. 

Add sauteed beef and onion to mushroom mixture, then add 1 1/2 tsp of paprika
and let simmer for 10-15 minutes

in the meantime cook some pasta!

Just before serving stir in 1 cup sour cream 

Pour over noodles add salt and pepper to taste!

  1. Mine would have been better if I'd had mushrooms. It was just the lack of mushrooms, I swear...
