Beef Stroganoff is my favorite dish when it comes to fine dining... but I was wondering what if I don't have the money to go to a fancy restaurant, how can I cook Stroganoff in the most CHEAPEST, QUICKEST and TASTIEST way? Care you help me myLotters? (I'm from SouthEast Asia and I don't know if all ingredients for stroganoff are available in my country for a cheap price)

Hello ben and welcome to my lot. To make stroganoff you need some flat or curly egg noodles, sour cream, and hamburger or beef, or ground chicken or turkey and cream of mushroom soup. Brown the meat and drain off any grease. Boil the noodle and combine the noodles, meat, mushroom soup and sour cream. You can put in the oven to heat it in the oven or on top he stove and serve. Hope you can find these ingredients.

Wow this is amazing. Thanks for sharing your recipe. But I have one question though, is there something that can be a replacement for sour cream? Is there a non-dairy product that can substitute the sour cream but still would make the dish taste almost the same?

I usually stock up on a few beef chuck roasts and cut them up into 1-2lb pkgs when they are on sale. So then I defrost one pkg, brown it in a skillet w/ some cooking oil. Then I use a packet similar to this http://www.amazon.com/McCormick-Stroganoff-Seasoning-1-5-Ounce-Packets/dp/B0012OV5PM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=grocery&qid=1281654360&sr=8-1-spell but not slow cooker version, a tub of sour cream, a clove of garlic minced and a can of mushrooms to a boil. Then I either used packaged noodles or home made egg noodles, cook them and then pour the contents of the skillet over & your are done. I've never heard of chicken stroganoff? Hmm... may have to try that one. Especially since chicken is cheaper than beef here.

Interesting. I've never steamed chicken before.... or thought about it. The seasoning is best to stock up on sale as they can get pricey to use a packet for one meal. In cooler weather I can find them on special for under $1 a packet.

Chicken strogranoff... uses steamed chicken fillet. Thanks for the tip 3SnuggleBunnies. I'll try to find that seasoning in our local grocery.

Stroganoff is an easy meal to prepare. You will need to saute onions, garlic optional, mushrooms, meat of choice (beef, chicken, or ground beef), then deglaze the pan with stock, and add a tablespoon or two of tomato paste. Depending on the cut of meat, it shouldn't simmer in the sauce much more than 20-30 minutes. At the last, add some sour cream for YUMMY taste. I can also be made without meat, just mushrooms and noodles and can also be served with rice. Inexpensive, quick, easy, tasty.

Really?? No meat? Just mushroom and noodles... wow... you've just made my day. Right now I'm on a diet and as much as possible I'd like to minimize eating meat but I want to eat great tasting food, well I guess this is the answer to my stroganoff craving. Thanks epicure35.

I don't know if it is available in your area, but "Hamburger Helper" makes an awsome Beef Stroganoff dish, that comes out perfect every time I make it. The box itself costs about $1.50 USD, and from there all you need is milk/cream and meat (beef/chicken). Good luck!

Thanks cbar86, I'll try to look for it in our local grocery store.
