Beef Stroganoff

Have you ever tried to find a recipe online for Beef Stroganoff?  What an adventure!  No two recipes are the same, and I am not just talking about the amount of ingredients, but what ingredients to even use!  So, with that in mind, here is what I settled on, combining several recipes, and arriving at a passable meal.  There were no leftovers to be sure.  Also, I used beef tips instead of cutting steak into strips.  I like the more substantial feel of the beef tips.  The recipe went well, but one of the kids had turned my burner to the simmer setting, which I did not discover until well into cooking.  As a result, I don’t think the sauce thickened as well as it should.  I’ll try it again sometime with proper settings on the stove!  You will want to make sure you have some egg noodles to serve with this!
