This Easy Beef Stroganoff recipe is done in 30 minutes and is a comforting classic dinner option for any night of the week! Delicious served over a steaming pile of egg noodles or mashed potatoes.
Beef Stroganoff (or “frogasnoff” as my little bro used to call it) was in our dinner rotation when I was a kid and I was always super excited when my stepmom told us it was stroganoff night. It’s the best of all the dinner worlds! It is meaty, creamy, comforting, hearty and satisfying. It is the ideal fall and winter meal!
Making Beef Stroganoff should be easy! Here’s how:
What cut of beef is best for stroganoff?
Round steak or rump steak are classic options for this dish, but don’t feel limited if you have another cut on hand. Use the beef you have on hand, even if it is ground beef.
How do you make beef stroganoff with ground beef?
This is definitely an option! Replace ground beef with the steak, ensuring that you do not break the meat up into small pieces. You’ll want to keep the meat in the dish chunky, so bigger chunks of beef is better.
What should I serve with beef stroganoff?
Beef stroganoff is typically served with pasta (egg noodles are a favorite because of their thickness), but mashed potatoes or rice are tasty options, as well.
How do you spice up beef stroganoff?
Add extra garlic for a spicier meal or add a few splashes of your favorite hot sauce at the end. A pinch of cayenne pepper would add great spice addition, too!
A few extra notes about Easy Beef Stroganoff:
I always like topping beef stroganoff off with fresh green onion slices, but fresh parsley is a great topping, as well. Don’t forget one last dash of salt and pepper before diving in!
For a healthier meal, use low-sodium beef broth, replace the sour cream with Greek yogurt and serve the meat over brown rice or quinoa.
For a gluten-free meal, serve over rice and replace the flour with cornstarch. Also keep an eye on the labels for the broth and Worcestershire.
I’m sad because my leftovers are gone, so back to boring salads for me today. I hope you enjoy this yummy recipe as much as I do! Have a wonderful week!
