Beef Stroganoff Ingredients

  • Beef: This recipe quickly sears the beef to keep it juicy and tender. Ribeye has great fat and flavor, while sirloin is more affordable and still tender. You can also use leftover steak or beef tenderloin.
  • Onions/Mushrooms: Onions and mushrooms add a rich, rustic flavor. Cremini mushrooms are my first choice, but any kind will do—try portobello or button mushrooms.
  • Broth: Use beef broth or stock in this recipe. If using low-sodium you may need to add extra salt.
  • Sour Cream: Sour cream is traditional and turns the gravy into a creamy mushroom sauce. Replace it with full fat Greek yogurt to add protein and reduce calories.

How to Make Beef Stroganoff

  • Brown the beef in small batches, if you add too much to the skillet it will steam instead of brown.
  • The beef is steak, so it can be a little bit pink inside.
  • For the best flavor, ‘deglaze’ the skillet in Step 6 by scraping up the yummy bits and stirring them into the sauce. You can use a splash of dry white wine if you’d like!
  • Thicken sauce by mixing a 1:1 ratio of cornstarch to water (this is called a slurry). Pour a little bit at a time while stirring the sauce in Step 6.

How to Store Beef Stroganoff

Store leftover beef stroganoff separate from the noodles in an airtight container for up to 4 days. Freeze portions without the noodles for up to a month and thaw in the refrigerator.

Reheat on the stove or in the microwave, adding a little milk if needed.

  • Pat the steak dry with a paper towel and cut it into ½-thick strips or 1-inch cubes.

  • Season the beef with seasoned salt and pepper, then toss with 1 tablespoon of flour. Shake off any excess flour.

  • In a large skillet or Dutch oven, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Brown beef in small batches for about 1 minute on each side until lightly browned. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

  • Reduce the heat to medium. Add butter and onion to the pan, cooking until the onion is softened, about 4-5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and garlic, continuing to cook until softened, about 4 minutes.

  • Add the remaining 2 tablespoons of flour to the mushroom mixture and cook for one minute.

  • Add the broth, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, and thyme. Bring to a boil, reduce the heat, and let simmer uncovered for 5 minutes.

  • Add the browned beef and any juices on the plate to the pot with the sauce. Cook for an additional 2 minutes or until the beef is heated through.

  • Remove from the heat and stir in sour cream. Season with additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve over egg noodles and garnish with parsley if desired.

  • For the most flavorful dish, choose striploin or ribeye. Any variety of steak will work.
  • Brown the beef in small batches for the best browning. Do not cook it all the way through; it’s steak and can be a little bit pink inside.
  • For a thicker sauce, make a slurry with equal parts cornstarch and water (start with 1 ½ tablespoons each). Whisk it into the boiling sauce a bit at a time until it reaches the desired consistency.
  • Don’t boil the sour cream or it can curdle.
  • Leftovers can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 4 days or the freezer for 4 months.
