Beef Stroganoff by Helen M. Radics

Hello Everyone!beef stroganoff 3mami christmas

As I always mention we don’t only make Hungarian dishes in my family.  I like every kind of  dish that takes my fancy and if I enjoy it, it stays in my family recipe group.  So, this is another recipe that my family always enjoys whenever I make it.  I hope you will also fall in love with this simple, elegant tasty goodness.


Use a non-stick pan as the bacon tends to stick to the bottom of the pot.


1 slice of beef steak, sliced into ¼ wide strips garlic 2
(about ½ lb)
1 large onion, peeled, chopped
1 cup of mushroom, peeled, sliced (remove and dispose stems)
½ tsp. ground black pepper
½ cup of dry white wine
½ tsp salt
1 tsp unsalted butter
½ cup of cooking cream
½ cup of sour cream
1 tbsp. mustardhagymacska
1 tbsp. flour
2 cups of beef broth or water (I used water as I like to control the salt)
1 pack of pasta (your favorite)
5 strips of bacon, cut into ¼ inch wide strips (optional, I like to add it)
1 bell pepper (cored and cut into strips)
1 tsp dry thyme
1 tsp olive oil


Use a non-stick pan as bacon tends to mess up your pot.


Place bacon in a large stockpot and cook until golden. Toss grease and continue cooking baking for another 5-10 minutes, add bthymeutter and teaspoon of olive oil, also add meat and flour, continue cooking for another 10 minutes; add mushroom, peppers, onion, thyme, black pepper, salt and continue cooking for about 20 minutes.

Add mustard, wine, broth or water and continue cooking until beef is tender. You may need to add a little more water as beef takes a while to cook. When desired tenderness is reached, mixed together sour cream and cream; add to the dish and cook until you get a thick sauce about 10 minutes.

At the time when you add the sour cream mixture, in a separate stock pot bring to boil 6 cups of water, then add 1 tbsp. salt and the pasta. Cook according to the package instructions, drain and serve either mixing together with Stroganoff or by placing a ladle of Stroganoff on top to each serving of pasta.
