Modern Beef Stroganoff with mushrooms.
Recipe by:  Ms. M. Stevens
This recipe was given to me by a Hungarian American editor, named Ms. Stevens, when we had travelled to Buda and Pest, Hungary two years ago who was staying at our hotel.
We had enjoyed it very much, and thus, I am posting it on FOW for all of you.
beef stroganoff with wild mushrooms and white vermouth or sherry ...
1/4 stick butter ( 2 tblsps. )
5 tblsps. Evoo
1 pound assorted wild local mushrooms ( chanterelle, shitake, boletus eduli, trumphets, crimini or oyster )
1/4 cup dry white vermouth or Sherry
1/4 cup crème fraîche or heavy cream
One 1 1/2 pound Tri Tip roast or beef tenderloin, excess fat trimmed and meat cut against the grain into 1/4 inch thick slices at 3 inch lengths
1 cup or 5 minced shallots

10) scrape up brown bits and simmer until sauce thickens slightly about 2 1/2 mins.
11) season the sauce with sea salt or kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
12) remove from heat; cover & keep warm.
13) meanwhile preheat the broiler and whisk remaining 3 tblsps Evoo and 2 1/2 tsps. tomato paste in a small bowl and blend
14) arrange the bread slices in a single layer and spread the mixture on the bread slices, both sides

Good Evening Kelly, 

Welcome to Fotw.  

I am sorry, I have not had Beef Stragonoff since I was in Budapest several years ago.

This recipe I had posted was simply lovely and the lady who gave it to me was delighting. 

It would be a good idea, to go to the Member´s Lounge Forum and introduce yourself .. 

Perhaps, there are some Hungarian Americans or Hungarians on FOTW who have some information on recipes.  

This is the only one I had ever posted.   

Have a lovely evening and all my best.
