Homestyle Beef Stroganoff Michelle Losey's Style
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 nice roast beef (not to much side fat or too much marbling) fresh or unfrozen
  • 4 cups of water
  • 4 Beef bullion cubes
  • Dash of worchester sauce
  • Garlic powder
  • Butter
  • 4 cups of sliced button mushrooms (or more depending on the size of your roast)
  • 4- 5 yellow cooking onions cut in 1/4's
  • Pepper
  • Cornstarch
  • At least 1 1/2 cup sour cream (depends on your families taste but personally I add more)
  • Wide egg noodles
DIRECTIONS
  1. Your gonna cook your roast the day before you make the stroganoff!
  2. Put Your roast, water. worchester sauce and bullion cubes in large roaster
  3. Sprinkle w/ a lil garlic powder
  4. Cover with tin foil w/ a few fork holes in it to vent
  5. Bake in low 325 oven for 1 hr
  6. Remove tin foil and throw away and flip over roast
  7. Continue baking Flip over as it starts to brown
  8. Add water if it gets to low (doubt it will though)
  9. Just before roast is done remove from oven and cut in bite size chunks or slices (whichever you prefer)
  10. Return beef to roaster and bake 'till done
  11. Cool slightly and put in a large bowl broth and all cover and put in fridge overnight
  12. Next day:
  13. Put Roast pieces and broth in big enough pan on stovetop and reheat
  14. Taste broth if its too salty add a lil water (if not salty enough add more beef bullion)
  15. Caramelize onions in butter and add to broth
  16. Add mushrooms to broth
  17. A few shakes of pepper
  18. Simmer until mushrooms are done
  19. Put couple TBS or more of cornstarch in a cup add water a lil at a time to make a thick paste
  20. Drizzle cornstarch into broth stirring constantly (if you put it in too fast or don't stir fast enough you'll get chunks in your gravy!!!)
  21. Add until you get a thick gravy
  22. Shut off heat and let cool a little before adding sour cream (If its too hot the sour cream will curdle but you do want it hot enough to heat the sour cream)
  23. Serve over cooked noodles:
