In all honesty this recipe caught me by surprise. I love beef stroganoff and all of the gloriousness that comes along with it...and I thought quite honestly, Paula Dean's recipe and uh not a lot of butter...Love you Paula, honestly I do, but you're known for butter and let's face it, only 2 tbsp makes one feel not representing Paula.
Anyway, on to the cooking...
First order of business is slicing up the cut of beef into manageable strips. I say manageable because you want to be able to eat this without a knife.
Next mix up the House Seasoning. It seems a bit odd to do something like this, but it's a really wonderful smelling blend that smells and tastes yummy.
Two swirls of Olive Oil and 2 tbsp of butter melted in the pan, before adding the beef to brown. Remove beef after cooking through
Depending how you like your onions, slice or chop them large or fine, then add them to the already heated pan that you just removed the beef from.
Add your 8 ounces of fresh mushrooms. I did Portabella mushrooms as I adore them. However you can use any mushroom that your heart desires.
After adding the steak back in to the mix. You'll add your beef broth and mushroom soup. I used garlic mushroom soup instead of plain cream of mushroom.
Finished Product! Need I say more :)
