Creamy Beef Stroganoff {Granny's Recipe}

1:47 PM
This beef dish is elegant as well as a classic comfort food, which may account for its popularity during the 50's.  Creamy Beef Stroganoff is that kind of dish!

My Creamy Beef Stroganoff recipe is my Mother's creation, consistently delicious.  I mean, you never wonder if it is going to be good.  Don't you love recipes like that?

Mother made it often as it was one of our favorite dinner meals.  Who can resist a creamy delectable beef, mushroom, peppers, onions, and sour cream sauce smothering egg noodles?

Remember to take the skillet off the heat when you add the sour cream last, because you do not want to boil it!

Beef Stroganoff is such a crowd pleaser. It is so easy to make the beefy sauce ahead of time and refrigerate it or freeze it minus the sour cream.

When I have company coming, I make the sauce a day or two ahead and refrigerate it, and when they arrive, I heat it up while I am cooking the noodles and add the sour cream.

 Plan ahead and you are ahead!

In a large skillet brown ground beef; add salt and pepper and just before beef is done add onion and bell pepper and cook until tender.
