Step 2: Get the Water on the Stove!

If your stove is anything like mine, the water will take a while to boil. This way, it'll be boiling around the time everything starts coming together!

You'll want to use quite a bit of water - in my case, I filled the stock pot about halfway. This will give the pasta room to move as it cooks and keep it from sticking.

Add a couple of generous pinches of salt to season the water. :D

Once the pasta is cooked, drain it and let it hang out in the colander until the sauce is done!
I read through all of your steps and I am definitely going to try this. I once had a pretty lady friend from Germany make this for me and it was out of this world; Unfortunately, I was never able to reproduce what she had one made for me. To make matters even more daunting I have no idea how to reach her anymore.... <br>Thanks for the post <br>Jeff
&gt;Egg noodles<br><br>So I assume I'll be needing four tons of egg noodles for this dish? I'm not sure I have that much.
Hahaha... yes. 4 tons.<br><br>I actually use about half of the normal sized bag when I make this. :)
Egg noodles come in 8, 16, and 24 oz bags. Which one do you consider &quot;regular?&quot;<br><br>Also, in this step you say to use half a cup of sour cream, but in Step 7 you say to use a whole cup.<br><br>I think you need to go through your instructions and clarify/correct them to make sure they're accurate and precise.
I've never seen anything but a standard 16 oz. bag in my grocery aisle - I double checked my cabinets to see what size what &quot;normal&quot;. <br><br>Though, really, it is the amount of noodles YOU like, because some people like all the sauce to be soaked up by noodles, and some people like to sop up the leftovers with bread. It's all down to personal preference. :)<br><br>Also, it is one cup of sour cream.
Jessy, this is my favorite dish <em>ever</em>. Nice job! 5/5 *s.<br/>
LOL mine too but my mom doesn't make it much cause it makes my dad sick.....btw my mom makes it better cause she uses shrooms and cream of mushroom soup
I refuse to use cream of anything soup in my food. :P
yay! thank you for that. someone tells me they use a can of &quot;cream of&quot; whatever in a recipe and I start to twitch...
LOL I just ate a cream of mushroom soup and French fried onions on top it was the best
Add green beans.
Thank you! :D
mmm that looks good i never thought to use mustard i use a can of cream of mushroom soup amd it makes the sauce thick i will have to combine recipes now mmmm
Yay i love beef stroganoff !!! My mum makes the beef and the sauce and then serves it with mashed potatoes and peas+sweetcorn ..yum :D
Mom makes it better!!!!!!!!!!!! Here's a tip....use "grandma's noodles"
Just made this with New York Strip Steak and mushrooms, taste good, i am going to take some to school for lunch.
Mushrooms go good it it too
use egg noddles instead of plain wheat pasta. add a slosh of soy sauce and Worcestershire sauce. sliced deli roast beef (or burger) makes it easy to eat.
<em>&quot;Food porn&quot;</em><br/><br/>Hahahhaahah<br/>:D<br/>
It is the best thing ever. :D
Looks yummy, though it's different than the version I'm used to. I wish my family liked Stroganoff better. Maybe they're prefer your version. (though I'm requested to make onion pieces "either too small to notice, or big enough to pick out." Sigh.)
You could always just use garlic and peppers. That tastes really good too! Well, unless they don't like peppers. :( Or grate the onion! That's another good trick. :D
That looks amazing! im gona try it. Easy instructions to follow also.
