Jane’s Beef Stroganoff

This recipe comes from a good friend of my Mom’s. It is very dated we are guessing from the 60’s. However my Mom swears it is the best she has eaten and has been making it for years. It is pathetic that I love stroganoff but always make with ground turkey and the Mccormick packet blend. I find some of the techniques also very dated and plan on making it to the recipe exact and then refining it to more modern techniques and seeing if the changes hurt or hinder the results. Adding onions and mushrooms without sautéing seems really odd. I also would like to see if using less expensive cut of beef might work as well. If you cannot find Burgundy wine, which is very likely unless you live in Florida, Pinot Noir is good substitute.
