Recipes: Beef Stroganoff

Vickie’s Beef Stroganoff

This is not your traditional stroganoff… it’s better!

I’m not sure where I got this recipe. But I’ve had it since the 1980s. Everyone has their favorite dinner, and traditional Beef Stroganoff has always been mine.

It’s simple and easy to fix. It doesn’t take a long time to prepare and there’s not really a lot to it. If you can dice an onion, you can make this dish.
