How To Make Beef Stroganoff

Start by cutting your steak thinly against the grain into strips, to ensure a tender bite.

PRO TIP –freeze the steak for about 15 minutes prior to slicing to get a good thin cut.

Season the steak strips with salt and pepper, then quickly sear the steak strips in a hot skillet. Make sure you don’t over cook the steak!

Sauté the onions and mushrooms in the same skillet with some butter until tender.

Make a quick gravy in the skillet and then add the steak strips back in.

What Type of Beef to Use for Beef Stroganoff?

For this recipe I’m using a Boneless Beef Sirloin Steak. You can also use these other types of steaks, but just make sure you cut against the grain so the strips are nice and tender!

  • Boneless Beef Sirloin Steak
  • Ribeye Steak
  • Beef Tenderloin Steak
  • Sirloin Steak Tips
  • Ground Beef –Yes, you can use my Ground Beef Stroganoff Recipe using ground hamburger!

Can You Freeze Beef Stroganoff?

Yes, you can definitely freeze this recipe, which is great for making ahead and serving later.

Just make sure you reheat slowly to not overcook the steak strips.

Tips and Recipe Variations:

  • My #1 tip is to make sure you cut your steak AGAINST the grain. This will make sure you don’t end up with chewy beef strips.
  • Pound your steak thin, then slice into thin strips. This will help again with the tenderness of your steak.
  • If you’re not a fan of mushrooms, you can leave them out, but they are one of the classic ingredients in stroganoff.
  • You can swap out the sour cream for plain Greek yogurt if desired.

  • Season beef sirloin steak strips with salt and pepper. Heat a large skillet over high heat and add 1 tbsp of olive oil. Sear half of the strips for 30 seconds on each side, then promptly remove from the skillet. Repeat with the remaining olive oil and steak strips.

  • Add 2 tbsp of butter to the empty skillet and add in the onions. Cook for 1 minute, then add in the mushrooms. Cook until tender, about 5 minutes.

  • Add in the garlic power, flour and paprika, stirring until thickened, about 1 minute. Splash in the dry sherry, scraping off any browned bits on the bottom of the pan, and cook until liquid is evaporated.

  • Gradually stir in the beef broth, then whisk in the sour cream and stir until combined and sauce begins to thicken.

  • Add the steak strips and any plate juices back to the skillet and remove from heat. Garnish with freshly chopped parsley and serve over hot cooked egg noodles. Enjoy!
