Stroganoff is generally a quicker-cooked dish with a more tender cut of beef. If you use the round, you might need to re-engineer the method a bit, searing and braising the beef first, then going back to create the sauce and finish the dish after the beef is tender. The beef is classically cut into strips (1/2" x 2"). If you seared in an oven proof pan then covered with beef broth and transferred to a 250F oven for about an hour, I think you'd be all set to then use the simmered broth with sour cream/creme fraiche et al to create the sauce. This recipe is closest to what I normally do. Hope this helps! http://www.epicurious.com...

Thanks Susan, That's about what I did, adding sour cream, off heat at end....................... not bad. The roast needed to be used up, and some bunny (DH) needed comfort food. :)

Dunno all the particulars but I think the classic is chuck, not round, even though round might do.

I always use new York strip. Regardless what recipe you use, good tasting meat is good tasting.
I like to cut a dill pickle into julienne strips and add at the last minute - as taught to me by my Ukrainian relatives.

I actually use beef tenderloin, sliced very thin, cooked quickly in some butter. Lift it out and jeep warm on a plate while cooking the mushrooms, onions, etc. and finishing with beef broth and sour cream, thickened with a roux if necessary. Delicious.

Whoops--typo above. Keep warm, not jeep warm!
