For an easy family meal, look no further than a classic stroganoff dish, which incorporates meat, pasta and a hearty sauce.  This classic Beef Stroganoff recipe uses ingredients commonly kept on hand, such as egg noodles, dijon mustard, beef broth, and garlic, for an easy and delicious family meal. For an extra addition and an added boost of flavor, this dish can be garnished with plenty of dried dill, although freshly chopped dill works just fine as well. 


4 servings (serving size: about 1 cup stroganoff and 1/2 cup noodles)
