Beef Stroganoff

You'd never guess this creamy, full-flavored Stroganoff is actually light! It's very meaty and features a thick tomato sauce that makes it look so impressive.—Rebecca Baird, Salt Lake City, Utah

    I first used this recipe to use up leftover beef pot roast. It was great! It was a very unique recipe! I left out the mushrooms and used butter instead of oil. 14 oz. of beef broth is about 1 3/4 cups. The beef I used was probably a little over a pound- because it easily served our family of 6. I would suggest cooking about 4-5 cups of medium egg noodles to serve 6 people.

    I was sceptical, but it was really yummy! I added a little extra worcestershire sauce for more flavor, and added a touch more broth as it began to thicken more than I like.My husband turned up his nose at it until he tasted it "WOW! This is really good!" :)
