    Beef stroganoff is one of our very faves! I usually take the crockpot route, although I have made it in my instant pot. This version sounds fantastic too. Thanks!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh thanks so much!

  2. J. Sweet

    sounds like a great idea for dinner!!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes, yum! 🙂

    I love to use leftover roast and gravy and chip up the roast add a can of mushrooms and a small carton of sour cream a boil my egg noodles then pour over the noodles and enjoy. This is a awesome dish to make when you do not have enough roast to feed everyone but will go a long way in stroganoff. I use to cook at a tea room and this is how we used leftover roast and gravy.

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Oh I love that idea!! Great tip Nicole!

  4. Jen

    OMG! Thank you so much for this series! I am so over cooking and never know what to make and normally end up making all the same things, which is BOORING!
    Thanks again!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Aw thanks so much Jen!! <3

  5. Just passing through

    Those mushrooms look soooo good! No one but me enjoys them 😔

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Aw Thanks! Yes, I have one kiddo that picks them out, and told him to put them right on my plate! LOL YUM.

    I love stroganoff! My version is virtually identical to yours, except that I don’t add Worcestershire sauce. I’ve also made it using ground beef that I browned up well, and once I even made it w/ beef bacon (we don’t eat pork). Not authentic at all perhaps, but those versions worked really well in a pinch!

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      Yes love the ground beef version as well! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by! <3

    I make this in my Insta Pot all the time and it makes the beef stripes soooo tender, plus it is all in one pot.

    Where does the last of the 3 tablespoons of butter go? It doesn’t mention it

    • Lina D (Hip2Save Sidekick)

      About 3 for browning all the meat, and 3 for sautéing mushrooms and onion. Hope that helps!
