It's hearty and warming just how a good stew should be. So when you are tired of the old turkey or ham then "Go To" Mister Stroganoff.

1 large yellow onion, thinly sliced
1 pound mixed mushrooms, sliced
1 tablespoon plain flour

1/2 tablespoon sugar

  1. Cut the meat into strips and season well with salt and pepper.
  2. Heat the butter in a large skillet and brown the meat in batches; remove meat when cooked.
  3. Add onion and mushrooms and sauté the mixture over medium heat until onion becomes soft.
  4. Stir in flour.
