Notes

  • Try browning the cubed beef in batches to ensure they get a nice brown color. If you overcrowd the pan, the beef doesn't brown as well. Just remove the beef to a plate once browned, and add a new batch.  You may need to add more oil to the pan too.
  • If you have either dried oregano or dried basil, but not both, just double the amount of the one you have. 
  • Cover the pan, and cook on low, letting it simmer slowly. Stir occasionally.
  • When you first add the sour cream and other ingredients to the beef, it will be very thick.  It will form it's own gravy as it cooks. 
  • Serve over mashed potatoes, rice or buttered noodles. 
  • This recipe can be made in the Crock Pot too.  After browning the cubed beef and mushrooms, add all ingredients to the slow cooker insert, cover and cook on low.
