Tips to make the best stroganoff recipe:

Mushroom: Get a fresh and tender mushroom for the best results. Wash the mushrooms and dry them well. Cut them in half, then in quarters and then cut them.
While the button mushrooms/portobello mushrooms are delicious in a creamy sauce, try shiitakes for different flavours!

Onions: Cook the onions in butter till the onion turns a light golden colour.

Spices: There are no fancy spices have added! Then basic mixed herbs, oregano and pepper powder are enough to make this recipe delicious.

Dijon mustard: Adding this one epic ingredient to mushroom stroganoff gives you adorable flavours.

Cream/sour cream: Traditionally sour cream is used, I have used fresh cream that elevates the taste and texture of the recipe.
