HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE BEEF STROGANOFF

You'll love having a quick and easy comfort food perfect for the weeknight dinner rotation!

STEP 1

Add a 12-ounce package of egg noodles to boiling water and cook till al dente. Drain the cooked noodles and rinse them in cold water. Meanwhile, heat the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the strips of beef and cook for 3-4 minutes. Remove the meat from the pan when the centers are still pink. Cover to keep warm and set aside.

STEP 2

Add olive oil to the pan if needed. Heat to medium in the skillet and add the mushrooms, onion and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the veggies are soft and fragrant, about 3-4 minutes. Add the flour and whisk until mixed together. Add the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, salt, pepper and stir in the sour cream. Simmer until mixture is thick, about 5 minutes (simmer longer, if needed).

STEP 3

Add remaining steak back to the pan and cook until it is completely heated through. Serve immediately over the cooked egg noodles. Top with sliced green onions and season with salt and pepper!

RECIPE TIPS

  • I enjoy topping the beef mixture with sliced fresh green onions, 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 sauce.

  • Add 1 tablespoon of dijon mustard along with the beef broth mixture for an extra splash of flavor.

  • Throw the leftovers (if there are any!) into a mushroom soup the following day. Beef and mushrooms make the best meals!

  • Mushrooms and beef stroganoff are made for each other! Add a can of cream of mushroom soup to the sauce mixture if desired or add mushrooms (extra!) to the recipe.

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 because sirloin steak is good too. Use the beef you have, even if it is ground beef.

HOW TO MAKE BEEF STROGANOFF USING GROUND BEEF

Making beef stroganoff using ground beef is definitely an option! Use ground beef in place of steak, ensuring that you do not break the meat up into small pieces. You will want to keep the meat in the dish chunky, so bigger chunks of beef is always better.

WHAT TO 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 TO ADD SPICE TO BEEF STROGANOFF

Add extra garlic for a spicier meal or add a few splashes of your favorite hot sauce toward the end of cooking the meal. A pinch of cayenne pepper would be a great spicy addition, too!
