    Stroganoff -

    Slice beef into small strips. (I usually use something like sirloin tips or an inexpensive steak.) Clean and slice mushrooms into quarters. Peel onion and slice thinly. Saute beef in oil or butter until almost done. Remove beef to plate. Without cleaning out pan, saute onion and mushrooms until done. Add beef back to pan, season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low, add sour cream. Heat until the sour cream is heated through. Serve over cooked noodles.

    How much of each ingredient? However much you want for however many people you are serving.

    Leif:

    Here's another version for stroganoff -- this one produces more sauce than Lee's version:

    Slice beef and onions thinly; Slice or chop garlic & slice mushrooms into thick slices if large, or quarter if small. Saute beef, onions and garlic in oil or butter until meat is no longer pink and onions are soft; add mushrooms and saute some more. Add beef stock (and perhaps a splash of wine) and bring to a simmer; thicken slightly with flour stirred into cold water and added to beef mixture. Adjust seasonings (more garlic, pepper, etc. & salt if you must). Simmer until sauce reaches desired consistency If the sauce gets too thick, I like to thin it down with a little more wine. Remove pan from heat and stir in sour cream. Serve over noodles, rice, potatoes, etc.

    Thanks to both you and Lee. My first attempt this weekend, combining both your tips (and a little artistic licence), was more than edible <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Trial & error is my favorite cooking method. Once you have the basics down, artistic license (almost) always adds a delicious touch. I usually follow a new recipe pretty closely the first time, but after that it's open season.
