If you have a hard time trying to think of meals for your family, well I am right in your pasture with ya!
Beef Stroganoff has been around for many years and my mom used it as a stapler all the time. Hence, I did the same as my family was growing up. It is so fast and simple and everyone loved it.
Over time I made some changes.
This recipe is one I have added to over and over making my own tastes and herbs we love around the ranch. Of course using the herbs we grew over the summer make it fresh and special.
One note to make… in other recipes they use canned mushroom soup. We really try and stay away from canned items and instead make homemade thickeners. As well as the beef stock, I make my own by adding a gravy thickener.
The first time I made this I accidently used stew meat. DON’T do that! The meat takes 3-4 hours to get tender. Unless you put this mixture into a crockpot and cook for that time frame it will be delicious. Especially for you busy moms that would be an awesome way to make this recipe.
Comfort food this meal is for sure! I hope you find it as delightful as my man does! Keep it fresh!
