Beef Stroganoff is a very popular dish of Russian origin that has evolved into many different interpretations. It is a easy to prepare dish that is a classic comfort food. In this recipe, I have combined great flavor combination for a very tasty dish. Spicy paprika and Dijon mustard give the dish an extra flavor boost. In the traditional recipe, there is only beef, and no mushrooms or onions. So if you prefer, you can omit the mushrooms and onions. When choosing the beef for this recipe, make sure to get a very tender cut, such as top sirloin. You can also substitute ground beef for a quick and economical alternative. This recipe is easily repaired on a busy weeknight. Serve over egg noodles, rice, or any type of other pasta.
