I miss my Russian grandma's barley porridge and Beef Stroganoff, so I combined the two dishes. Cook the barley using the risotto method to keep the grains whole and irresistibly chewy. —Tatiana Kireeva, New York, New York
This lightened-up Stroganoff from Beth Bries of Farley, Iowa is sure to become a family favorite. The tender strips of beef, sliced mushrooms and onion are coated in a pleasing sauce made with fat-free yogurt and served over noodles.
Doris Heath of Franklin, North Carolina shared this out-of-the-ordinary Stroganoff, made with snap peas and a mild blue cheese sauce. “You can use any kind of pasta you wish…even leftovers,” Doris notes.
This homey recipe of steak and egg noodles in a creamy sauce is just like what we had at my gran's house when we'd visit. It's one of my favorite "memory meals," as I call them. —Janelle Shank, Omaha, NE
"This is a super-fast way to prepare Stroganoff without all the extra simmering involved," writes Mary Wilhelm of Sparta, Wisconsin. "For a change of pace, I use boneless chicken breast strips instead of beef. Served with a salad and dessert, your meal is complete."
This slow cooker recipe makes a traditional dinner completely fuss-free. Tender sirloin steak with a flavorful gravy is served over noodles for a home-style meal. Your whole family is sure to request it time and again. —Lisa VanEgmond, Annapolis, Illinois
This recipe has fed not only my own family, but many neighborhood kids! They come running when I make this supper. It's one of those things you throw together after work on a busy day because you know it works. —Julie May, Hattiesburg, Mississippi
"This is one of my husband's favorite dishes," relates Carmen Edwards of Midland, Texas. "I like it because it has meat and vegetables, and the flavors work so well together. Sometimes we serve it over rice and add steamed asparagus or a salad for a great meal."
