Beef Stroganoff

Creme fraiche is similar to sour cream but milder and sweeter, with a touch of nuttiness. Unlike sour cream, it can be simmered in sauces without curdling. Look for creme fraiche at well-stocked supermarkets or at gourmet food stores. To make your own, combine 1 cup of nonultrapasteurized heavy cream and 1 Tbs. buttermilk in a saucepan and heat over medium-low heat until just lukewarm. Pour into a bowl, cover loosely and let stand at room temperature until thickened, 8 to 48 hours or more. Chill before using.

I made half of this recipe for two. It was very simple and fast even for a week night. I used sour cream instead.

Absolutely delicious. I did have to cook my mushrooms longer to get them browned, but it may be because I added twice as much as the recipe called for.
Pros: Kid-Friendly, Will Make Again

Vegetarian Version
February 21, 2012
After reading these reviews and those of the vegetarian stroganoff on the William-Sonoma site, I decided to use this recipe as my basis. I added one minced shallot and sauted with the leeks, subbed 1C wine, 1.1/2 C vegetable broth for the beef broth, used 2lbs total of mushrooms (crimini, button, shitake) in place of the beef and mushrooms, and a total of 8oz creme fresh (yummy stuff). Turned out fantastic with a "make again" vote from my husband.
Pros: Quick, Easy, Appearance, Adaptable, Will Make Again
