Chef Mom

I've collected these recipes from family members, out-of-print cookbooks, magazines, and the backs of food cartons. I've modified quite a few of them and, I think, made them even better. I only put my family's favorites on this site, because I'd like for my friends to have as many good food memories as we do. Enjoy...

Company Beef Stroganoff

I've tried about five beef stroganoff recipes and every one of them sucked. But I kept looking- I knew that somewhere, somehow, I was going to find a good, nay, a great Beef Stroganoff recipe. And here it is. The best Beef Stroganoff- ever.


1 pound beef tenderloin, cut into thin, bite-sized pieces (I used thinly sliced sirloin tip).
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup minced onion
1 can beef consomme
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 minced garlic clove
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup sour cream


-Melt butter in pan. Add mushrooms and onion. Cook until tender (about 5 minutes). Remove mushrooms and onion.
-Add beef and brown.
-Reserve 1/3 cup consomme. Add to pan remaining consomme together with ketchup, galic and salt. Stir. Cover and simmer 15 minutes.
-Add remaining consomme and flour. Stir.
-Add onion and mushrooms. Heat to bubbling, stirring constantly for one minute. Reduce heat to low.
-Stir in sour cream. Keep on low so sour cream does not bubble.
-Serve over rice or noodles (I used a bag of egg noodles. Delish).

I like to make this lo fat and use light butter and light sour cream. This doesn't change the flavor one bit although the sauce is just a little bit thinner. But when you put it over noodles or rice who cares. Thanks for the recipe, I continue to make it over and over.
