In the dead of winter, everyone needs some good ol' comfort food. And this classic beef stroganoff is it! This could be served over mashed potatoes or another starch, but the silky egg noodles are just perfect when the creamy sauce coats them! Thinly sliced tender beef and hearty mushrooms are the star of this dish, swimming in a lovely bath of rich beef stock sauce made creamy with the addition of tangy sour cream. You could even make this vegetarian by using all mushroom and skipping the meat completely! But if you try this method, be sure to use a variety of mushrooms like crimini, shiitake, white button, and even portobello. It will make the dish much more interesting and you won't even miss the meat!
