Mom's Take on Beef Stroganoff

Growing up in the 70's there was a favorite Beef Stroganoff recipe that my mother prepared.She did this on a budget, and the secret to having tender meat, and a rich sauce. The Beef was on the stove in the morning, and by mid-afternoon she added the sour cream and let all the flavors meld together. At supper time, she boiled the pasta, toasted the garlic bread, and we had a hearty, home cooked meal.
