Stroganoff Recipe

Growing up, one of my favorite dinners was my mom's stroganoff recipe.  In fact, it was always my birthday dinner request. It's the perfect balance of creamy and savory.  Melt in your mouth beef and tender mushrooms make for a dinner that will satisfy even the pickiest eaters.  Plus, it's unbelievably easy to make. You throw everything in a crockpot or a dutch oven, cook until tender, add some sour cream, sauté mushrooms, and serve over noodles.


Weeknight Dinners

Because of the ease of this stroganoff recipe, it's perfect for busy parents. If you don't have a crockpot, I suggest making this recipe on Sunday in your oven and then you can eat the leftovers for Monday dinner. That way dinner is all done for the beginning of the week.

If you're not a mushroom fan, then leave them out. However, if you're like my mom and me and love mushrooms, then I suggest doubling the amount of mushrooms. Since this entree is on the rich side, I suggest serving with an Italian salad or a mixed greens salad with a balsamic vinaigrette.


This was always my birthday dinner request growing up. It's meaty, savory, creamy, and truly hits the spot. Luckily for my mom, it was a very easy birthday dinner to whip up!
