Beef Stroganoff (Home Cookin’)

For Valentine’s Day this year we wanted to do something low key at home, rather than going out to a fancy restaurant. It’s freezing cold and snowing outside, so what’s better than meaty comfort food like beef stroganoff with egg noodles? :)  I searched online for a while and finally settled on Tyler Florence’s recipe — it requires the beef to cook for a good two hours, unlike many other recipes that are 30 minutes or less. I like my beef to be melt-in-your-mouth tender! This dish was incredibly hearty and cozy, kind of like a warm blanket of meaty, noodle-y deliciousness. Happy Love Day to all!
