Here's a great recipe for beef stroganoff filled with plenty of that mushroom and onion flavor. It's interesting to note, though, that the earliest versions of the recipe, (dating back to the 1860's) didn't have onions or mushrooms like most of us today would expect.Instead, the dish was traditionally cooked with mustard and bullion.
This recipe, however, is based off that 1950's-style dish that includes beef strips and a mushroom, onion, and sour cream sauce. Serve it over a bed of egg noodles, and garnish the dish with fresh dill to really make the flavors pop. Since this is a slow cooker recipe, you can prepare it the morning of, or even the night before and get home to a perfectly cooked meal. Keep reading below for our beef stroganoff recipe…
