Mother's Day: My Grandmother's Beef Stroganoff


I'm not huge on red meat. I'm not really a big 'meat' fan. I never have been, and I certainly don't like it when it star's in a dish, but for some reason, I have always loved this version of Beef Stroganoff. Maybe it's b/c I grew up with it (via my Grandmother's recipe), but I doubt that b/c I spent more time resisting the meals my Mom made when I was little as opposed to embracing them. When I requested a dish, this was one of the two I always asked for when I was younger, when I came home from college, and on the occasional special occasion when my Mom brings her pots and pans out of retirement. I don't like any other version, but I like this one, though I still like a little beef with my noodle platter. The rest of my family would have the reverse of my plate, so it all evens out in the end!
BEEF STROGANOOF RECIPE
Ingredients: 1 lb. ground beef, 1 onion, chopped, 1/4 c. butter, 2 T. flour, 1 t. salt, 1 t. garlic salt, 1/4 t. pepper, 1 can cream of chicken soup, 1 c. sour cream, 1 package egg noodles, cooked as directed.

Beef stroganoff is my all-time favorite meal. We have it like every other week. The only real difference between yours and mine is that I use beef broth instead of cream of chicken soup and onion powder instead of an actual onion. Love it!
