Beef Stroganoff with Mushrooms and Cream

This recipe features a small modification to the beef stroganoff recipe I posted earlier, but a good one: a cup of cream and cremini mushrooms give this dish a very rich taste.

Field mushrooms will also work good in this recipe, but cremini are the best.

As usual, I suggest serving beef stroganoff with a side of boiled buckwheat, it tastes great with mushrooms and cream and, of course, beef.

Happy New Year Julia! Made this last night, very tasty! I was wondering though, we didn’t have heavy cream back in the day, what did people use for the recipe? Sour cream? Milk? Also, I noticed some recipes include cognac and beef broth, have you tried it? Does it really alter the taste much?

This recipe is also fabulous with wild game.

I think this looks really yummy! This is beef stroganoff like my Mom makes it. My husband is completely averse to mushrooms so I don’t get to make it with mushrooms.
