HOLLY’S BEEF STROGANOFF RECIPE

This super easy and wonderful recipe for Beef Stroganoff from my friend Holly at Life in the Lofthouse has been making an appearance at our dinner table for a long time. Actually, it was a favorite meal her Mom would make them growing up. There is something just so darn comforting about this creamy beef mixture served over egg noodles.

    My fiancé loves stroganoff and for the longest time we would just get the hamburger helper kind. I wanted to start making it myself so when I found this recipe I made it that night. We LOVE this and make it almost every week.
