Beef Stroganoff

Beef Stroganoff is a Russian dish that features sauteed cubed beef in a sour cream based sauce served on noodles. Over the years it has spread in popularity around the world and there are countless variations. In this version I use ground beef, a few vegetables and egg noodles. I love how tender egg noodles are and they also can go great in chicken noodle soup! The wonderful thing about this dish is that it can feed a family at a low cost, so if you are on a tight budget, this is a great meal to add to your rotation!
