Stroganoff has many variations, some more sophisticated than others. Most of my stroganoff memories involve uninspired combinations of ground beef and cans of cream of mushroom soup. This is quick and filling, but forgettable. This week, I found a way to combine a version of a Cook’s Illustrated mushroom sauce, Instant Pot pork butt, and egg noodles (or rice). The results? Not Your Mama’s Stroganoff Recipe.
This updated Stroganoff recipe also worked for my family because the meat created a broth that kids could substitute for the mushroom sauce if they won’t eat “fancy” food – dinner win! This is not a super quick dinner, but most of the time needed is in the sauce. The meat needs time in your Instant Pot (about 2 hours if you include preheating, cooking, and natural release), but no supervision. The noodles boil while you make your sauce. Buy pre-cut mushrooms to save time. With a little planning, your family can enjoy Not Mama’s Stroganoff Recipe any night.
