Beef stroganoff is quite a special dish for us. It's was my Hubby's favorite thing to cook before we met and he is the one who taught me how to make it! It's one of our favorite dishes and we always make it together. Over the years, we perfected it and learned a few tricks that help. We are about to show you how to make the best beef stroganoff right in your kitchen and in just 20 minutes!
Ingredients Needed (your shopping list):
- olive oil
- 1.5 lbs beef sirloin
- baby Bella mushrooms
- beef stock
- salt and pepper
- Worcestershire sauce
- all-purpose flour
- sour cream
- wide egg noodles
Season beef with salt and pepper and stir to coat.
Add beef to hot skillet and cook for 1 minute on both sides. Remove onto a plate.
To the same skillet, add onion slices, garlic and mushrooms. Stir and cook.
Sprinkle flour over vegetables and stir in until there is no flour visible.
Drizzle in the beef stock and Worcestershire sauce. Stir until combined.
In the meantime, in a stockpot bring water to boil. Add salt and noodles. Cook until done. Drain, set aside and keep warm.
When the vegetable sauce is thick, add back cooked beef and stir in. Add sour cream and stir until combined and the sauce is creamy.
Serve sauce over noodles. Garnish with chopped green onions or parsley.
Can I make this dish ahead of time?
If you need to make it ahead of time, I suggest making the beef with sauce and store in a fridge. Cook the noodles just before serving. Noodles do not refrigerate well.
What cut of beef is best for this dish?
For this recipe, I used boneless beef sirloin and cut it into thin strips. You can also use beef tenderloin or beef rib eye.
What is stroganoff sauce made of?
The stroganoff sauce is made with meat juices, beef stock and sour cream. It should be creamy and flavorful.
- ground beef: use 1 lb of ground beef in place of sirloin
- gluten-free: use gluten-free noodles and use cornstarch instead of flour; make sure the Worcestershire sauce is gluten-free
- slow cooker: cook browned meat in the slow cooker on HIGH for 4 hours, then add sour cream and noodles.
How to lighten up this dish?
To make this dish even lighter, use cornstarch in place of flour (use only 2 Tablespoons) and Greek yogurt in place of sour cream. Beef stroganoff is at the top of our pure comfort foods list and we want you to love it too!
