9 Beef Steak Stroganoff: Using My Canned Beef!

I'm standing in the kitchen, looking at my oldest son, who is wondering what's for dinner.

"How does stroganoff sound?"

He immediately pulls a face..."Uh.....mmmmm....(mumbling something about a box).... 

Oh, honey, it's not coming from a BOX.  It's going to be better.  It's HOMEMADE.  I'm using REAL beef (holding up my canned beef).

Uh....mmmmm...I don't know.....

I had to think fast.  Up the ante.

I'll even put it on HOMEMADE noodles.....


He still didn't sound sure, but I went ahead anyway.

I'm glad I made this recipe.  Thanks to Norah's Recipes, it was the BEST stroganoff we have ever had.  

No box.  No canned cream of something or other.  

The REAL DEAL.  Ready?  Here's what I did:

Scraped the semi-solid fat from the top.

There was only a small amount.

Drained the broth.  

Looks like a little over 1/2 cup.

Set this aside.

Dumped my meat out.


Wiped a tear.  


Made some chicken broth with McCormick's Chicken base...

Added it to the beef broth with brown sugar...

Squeezed in some tomato paste.

Yeah, you heard me right.  Squeezed.  

This lovely tube of tomato paste was given to me by Norah.

Yeah, of Norah's Recipes!  Thanks, Norah!

Ooooh.....just had an idea of what to do with the left over tomato paste.

Stay tuned for a kitchen tip....

Added all purpose flour.

I can do this because the broth is cold....

Stirred out all the lumps...

cooked it until it was nice and bubbly.
Tossed in some mushrooms.

These have been pre-cooked and kept in my freezer.

Added sour cream and beef.

Stirred until warmed through.

Served over hot, buttered homemade noodles.

Look at this piece of tender meat....

I can't wait to make this again ~

Beef Steak Stroganoff


  1. Frieda--you are quite the cook! I love it that you know where your beef has come from. I will have to try the recipe for stroganoff--unfortunately, not with home canned beef. Looks yummy! Joni

  2. Thanks for letting me know you posted about the canned beef. I just linked it to my ward blog! Thanks again...

  3. I need to come over when you cook this...I love it, Paul does not. =)

  4. Wow! Pressure canning meats - so hard core. I am impressed by your ambition!

  5. making my mouth water @ 5:15 am (-:

  6. Looks delicious! I'm also impressed you made your own noodles!

    I look all the time for the tomato paste in the tube but still cannot find it in my area.

  7. OK... so much to comment on here!

    First of all, I think you've talked me into getting a pressure canner/cooker. Your canned meat looks fabulous.

    Second: I love, love, love tomato paste in a tube. It's hard for me to find sometimes, but Meijer stores usually have it and I've also ordered it from Amazon. Just squirt out what you need and keep the rest in the fridge. It's brilliant!

    Third: I had no idea you could freeze mushrooms!

  8. Mags, Let me know when you get your pressure canner. There's a couple of sites that have great prices.

    You love tomato paste in a tube? Then you're going to love my next kitchen tip even better...

  9. Okay I may just have to try canning my own meats cause your beef looks amazing.
    Love the tip on freezing cooked mushrooms and will be doing that in the future.
    Thanks so much for the mentioning of my blog! I love your blog too.
