*[This recipe can be a good use for leftover beef]
The best beef Stroganoff simply starts with good ingredients, like grass-fed (free of hormones, steroids, and antibiotic) or organic beef… sautéed with onions, mushrooms and sour cream.
Beef is the best source of iron and vitamin B-12, which aids the metabolism of every cell in your body.
For this recipe I use common white button mushrooms.
Just trim the stem ends and wipe the caps clean with a dry towel.
Note – when sour cream is cooked it must be heated slowly over low heat or it will separate. Do not allow it to boil. Also, be careful not to over stir sour cream because it can thin and curdle.
Serve over buttered noodles.
Topping with a dollop of sour cream…optiinal 😉

2 lbs of medium to rare cooked lean Roast Beef (or more) 😀
Dash of salt (or to taste, which you do thru-out cooking) 😉
