Author Notes: Where most stroganoffs are rich messes of overcooked meat in goopy sauce, this mushroom version is light and fresh with bright, floral notes from the sherry and a little bit of spice. A dollop of sour cream added to each diner’s plate adds a touch of creaminess without thickening the sauce too much. —HealthyDelicious
