Yummy Beef Stroganoff: another Auntie Karen special

Years ago, Auntie Karen passed this recipe along to me. I never liked beef stroganoff (I had some stroganoff baggage in my life having to do with liver stroganoff. Don’t ask.) before I tried this one. I was amazed at how delicious this dish is.

Auntie Karen’s Beef Stroganoff

  • 2 pounds beef tenderloin (I usually use London Broil. When it’s on sale, I stock up.)
  • 1/4 c. butter
  • 6 ounces mushrooms
  • 21 ounces condensed beef broth (approx. 2 2/3 c.) (I use whatever broth I have on hand…sometimes even bouillion cubes in water.)
  • 1/2 c. onion
  • 1/4 c. ketchup
  • 1 1/2 T. garlic salt
  • 1 t. minced garlic
  • 1/3 c. flour
  • 2 c. sour cream

Cut the meat across the grain. Melt butter in a skillet and stir sliced mushrooms in. Brown mushrooms. Remove and set aside. Brown meat. Reserve 2/3 c. broth and stir the rest in. Add onions, garlic, ketchup, garlic salt and cover. Simmer for 15 minutes. Blend flour and the rest of the broth. Stir into meat. Add mushrooms and boil, stirring constantly for 3 minutes. Take off heat. Stir in sour cream.

Serve over noodles or rice.
