I made this cake for my husband’s birthday this month & it is delicious!  I first tried it back in college, my roomie’s mom made it for her birthday.  I’ve been hooked ever since and now it is a family favorite all throughout the generations of my family, too.  Thanks Kerry & her mom for introducing this to us!

Jennifer’s Beef Stroganoff


This is what I’m eating tonight for dinner thanks to Jennifer from the freezer co-op!  Its a favorite among the group.  Enjoy!


Beef Stroganoff

To cook the beef:
1 lb. trim stew beef
1 pkg Lipton onion soup mix
2 or 3 cups water, depending on how rich and oniony you want your sauce
salt, pepper, and garlic powder to taste

Put all ingredients in crock pot and cook all day (8-10 hours)  It will remain soupy – hold on to this broth to use in the sauce.

Sauce ingredients
8 oz. fresh mushrooms (optional)
2 cloves minced garlic
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp red wine vinegar or more to taste (Do not omit lemon juice and vinegar.  They add lots of flavor and balance the richness of the sauce)
1/2 to one cup sour cream

Saute mushrooms and garlic in butter until tender and fragrant.  Add flour to form a roux, stirring constantly for 1 minute.  Start adding broth from crock pot a ladle full at a time, stirring to incorporate before adding more.  When sauce is the desired consistency, remove from heat.  Add beef from crock pot.  Stir in lemon juice, vinegar, and sour cream to your taste.  Serve over egg noodles, rice, or mashed potatoes.
