BEEF STROGANOFF INGREDIENTS

A tray of food, with Beef Stroganoff

You’ll need:

  • 1 pound top sirloin cut into thin strips
  • salt and pepper to season steak
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • ¾ pounds mushrooms, sliced thick
  • ⅓ cup chopped onion
  • 2 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1½ cups beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • ½ tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 12 ounces egg noodles, cooked according to package directions

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

MUSHROOMS: You can use fresh or canned mushrooms for this easy recipe. You can also change up the variety of mushrooms you use. White mushrooms work fine but what about cremini mushrooms? Use a clean damp soft cloth or a dampened paper towel and gently wipe the dirt off of the mushrooms. Don’t rinse mushrooms under running water. If you are not a fan of mushrooms, you can certainly leave them out.

NOODLES: If you want to skip the egg noodles, you can also serve this over creamy mashed potatoes or rice.

BEEF: This recipe calls for top sirloin steak cut into thin strips. We’ve found this to be the best cut of meat because it’s easy to lock in its juicy flavor with a quick sear. The beef in this recipe sears for about a minute, so you’ll want a cut of steak that’s thin and quick to cook.

Other similar cuts of meat that are still tasty include boneless ribeye, beef tenderloin, or Filet Mignon tips

SOUR CREAM: Greek yogurt would work just as well as the sour cream in this delicious recipe.

HOW TO MAKE THIS BEEF STROGANOFF RECIPE

STEP ONE: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Season beef strips with salt and pepper. Once oil is heated add the strips of steak and cook beef for less than a minute on each side just to get a quick sear. (Do this in batches to not crowd the skillet). Remove meat to a platter and cover with foil to keep the meat warm.

PRO TIP:

Searing the beef first helps to lock in moisture and flavor giving you tender, juicy meat for your dish.

STEP TWO: Reduce the heat in the skillet to medium. Add the butter to the skillet then saute the onions, mushrooms, and garlic until tender.

STEP THREE: Sprinkle the flour over the bottom of the pan and cook for one minute stirring constantly.

STEP FOUR: Gradually add the beef broth.

STEP FIVE: Stir in the mustard, Worcestershire sauce and sour cream until blended. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for 5 to 7 minutes to thicken the sauce.

PRO TIP:

If you find your sauce is too thick, you can add a splash of water to thin it out a little bit.

STEP SIX: Return the beef to the skillet along with all the juices on the plate and simmer for one minute. Remove from heat and serve over cooked egg noodles.

HOW TO SERVE

This recipe is best served over egg noodles, mashed potatoes or even cauliflower rice. Add a Caesar salad and dinner rolls on the side to scoop up all that tasty gravy.

STORAGE

IN THE FRIDGE: Store your leftovers in an airtight container in your fridge for up to 3 to 4 days.

IN THE FREEZER: Store in your freezer for 2 to 3 months. When it’s time to defrost your leftovers, reheat them in a skillet on your stove. 

REHEATING: To reheat frozen beef stroganoff, cook on medium heat for about 30 minutes, until heated through. For refrigerated leftovers, reheat on medium heat for 10 to 15 minutes.

PRO TIP:

Store your stroganoff sauce and noodles separately to help preserve their texture and flavor.

MAKE-AHEAD: This recipe is easy to make ahead of time if you want to make a second batch for later. The key is to keep your sauce and noodles separate.

Cook the beef and sauce according to the recipe. Refrigerate (or freeze) the sauce in an airtight container. When ready to serve, reheat your sauce in a skillet on the stovetop. Cook egg noodles separately according to package instructions. Serve beef and sauce over egg noodles.

Try this beef stroganoff once and it will be a meal that your whole family craves. Beefy, creamy sauce make this recipe the ultimate comfort food.

    This was a very good recipe. I had to make it twice, the beef for me need to cook longer. I prefer fall apart beef no matter the cut.
