A note about serious food allergies

Though the dish was initially intended for royalty in 19th-century Russia, beef stroganoff is the perfect bowl of creamy comfort that's surprisingly simple to recreate, even for us non-royals. The sauce is composed of tart sour cream, fresh herbs, garlic, red wine, earthy mushrooms, and lean beef accented with freshly ground black pepper. Ladled atop al dente noodles to sop up all of the luxurious sauce, this dish will have everyone asking for seconds (or thirds).

    Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Put a colander in the sink. Add the egg noodles and cook for 11–13 minutes, stirring occasionally, until al dente. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop the cooking process. Drain well and set aside until ready to serve.

    Heat a large pan with 1 tsp. of olive oil over medium heat. Add the beef and cook for 8 -10 minutes, or until browned and no pink remains. Drain some of the fat from the pan. Slowly stir in the flour until incorporated. Transfer the cooked beef to a bowl and keep warm.

    In the same pot the noodles were cooked in, heat 1 Tbsp. of olive oil, onion, and garlic over high heat for 2-3 minutes, or until onions are translucent. Reduce heat to medium and add mushrooms, thyme, and half of the parsley. Cook for 3-4 minutes, or until mushrooms are fork tender. Add the red cooking wine, reserved beef broth, and cooked ground beef and bring to a simmer. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Remove from the heat and slowly stir in the sour cream. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.
