Original recipe by Grammy (Trudy Henley) and shared by my mom, Angie Fryer. Grammy’s original recipe called for a packet of onion soup mix, I prefer using a chopped onion instead.

This is Clara Ward’s version of Beef Stroganoff, which Shelly likes in part because it includes Worcestershire sauce. She has more butter in her recipe, which always makes things more rich! Consider trying different elements of both versions of this recipe. Both are fantastic.
