So I usually just make my own cream of mushroom soup and it works wonderfully all the time.

Beef Stroganoff made Easy

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 3
 
Ingredients
  • 300g beef round steak
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • ½ tsp. paprika (not spicy)
  • 1 cup sour cream (schmand in German)(see below Tips)
  • 250g precooked noodles
  • Salt & Pepper
Instructions
  1. Slice beef across the grain into very thin slices.
  2. Boil the beef in water (about a cup) in low heat for at least 30 minutes or until it is tender.
  3. In skillet over medium heat, cook onion and garlic in butter until tender. Add beef and cook until browned.
  4. Pour in the soup and paprika. Cook for 2-3 minutes stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Add sour cream and mix. Add salt & pepper as desired.
  5. Serve over noodles.
Notes
Freeze beef before cooking to make slicing or cutting easier.

Instead of a can of cream of mushroom, you may use the powdered mushroom soup by dissolving 3 tbsp in a cup of water. This is usually already salted so no need to add more.

You may also add Champignon mushrooms after step 2 if desired.

This has a hint of a sour taste because of the sour cream, but for others who prefer it to be creamy but not sour, then use Cream cheese (Frischkäse) instead. Or just use All-purpose Cream (Sahne) and add it together with the soup.
