This is a very old recipe given to me by a family friend. Her name was Deanie…
I have always loved her name. She had a very traditional first name that she did not care for. Her middle name was Dean (after her Father) and she chose to use that name. Of course her Mother added the “ie” to make it sound more like a girl’s name and it stuck.
I like stories like that….;)
Deanie gave me a lot of recipes including an Old World recipe for Kolache, which came from her Czech grandmother! I will share that recipe at a later date. For those of you who do not know what a kolache is…it is a soft pastry of yeast dough with a “thumbprint” or small hole in the center, which is traditionally filled with a sweet cheese or fruit. They are so good that they just melt in your mouth. I promise that recipe is coming soon. This wonderful recipe came from Czech immigrants…. and I want to show you step by step.
I like stories like that too!!
This Stroganoff recipe also came from Deanie’s Grandmother and is more of a humbleized version of beef stroganoff. Is humbleized even a word? I doubt it! I like to make up words…I am weird and quirky… I know! 🙂
This strogganoff is made with ground beef and sour cream and served over noodles, mashed potatoes or rice.
Below is the printable recipe.
- 1 small onion chopped

- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 pound ground beef (lean)
- 4 ounces baby portabellas or white button mushrooms, sliced

- 1 cup beef broth
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 tablespoon spicy mustard
- 8 ounces of wide egg noodles
- 1 teaspoon chopped dill
- Melt butter in large saute pan on medium high heat

- Stir broth slowly into beef mixture and add sour cream and mustard...reduce heat.
