Beef Stroganoff Recipe

There are 2 critical factors for beef stroganoff: (1) quick searing of high quality beef and (2) the right proportions of sauce ingredients for a balanced sauce that makes the beef really shine.

What is the Best Beef for Stroganoff?

This recipe relies on a quick sear (1 minute per side) so a high quality, tender steak is critical for best results. A poor quality steak will be chewy and tough. My old Russian Cookbook (circa 1990) recommends a filet mignon but it also works very well with:

  • Top Sirloin (be sure it says “TOP sirloin”)
  • Boneless Ribeye steak
  • Beef Tenderloin
  • Filet Mignon tips
  • If you are looking for a less expensive alternative, some have reported good results using ground chuck beef.

What is Stroganoff Sauce Made of?

Although this recipe calls for a high quality steak, stroganoff sauce has humble ingredients that produce rich and memorable flavor. The original sauce has been modified as it has traveled the world. Some have added wine (like this slow cooker stroganoff) and a variety of seasonings, but the base of a good stroganoff sauce is simple:

  • Broth (we use beef broth)
  • Whipping Cream
  • Sour Cream
  • Mustard

Ingredients for stroganoff with beef, mushrooms, broth, mustard, sour cream, whiping cream

How to Serve Beef Stroganoff:

Beef stroganoff is packed with flavor from it’s creamy mushroom sauce so pair it with simple grains or starches that won’t compete with the sauce, such as:

Who Invented Beef Stroganoff?

Beef Stroganoff was invented in Russia in the early 1800’s. Count Stroganoff was a dignitary in the court of Alexander III. Count Stroganoff’s chef (who was likely French), created the dish and named it after Stroganoff. I found a picture of Count Pavel Stroganoff, but wish I could find the chef as well! The earliest known recorded recipe was published in this Russian cookbook published in 1871.

Ingredients

For the Beef Stroganoff:

To Serve:

  • 1 Tbsp green onion, to garnish
  • 8-12 oz egg noodles, to serve

Instructions

  1. Place a large deep pan or dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add 2 Tbsp oil and once oil is very hot, add thinly sliced beef strips in a single layer, cooking 1 minute per side without stirring. Cook until just browned and no longer red. Sear beef in 2 batches so you don't overcrowd the pan. Remove beef to a plate and cover to keep warm.

  2. Add 2 Tbsp butter, chopped onion and sliced mushrooms. Sautee 6-8 minutes or until liquid has evaporated and onions and mushrooms are soft and lightly browned.

  3. Add 1 minced garlic clove and sautee 1 minute until fragrant. Add 1 Tbsp flour and sautee another minute stirring constantly.

  4. Pour in 1 cups beef broth, scraping any bits from the bottom of the pan then add 3/4 cup whipping cream and simmer another 1 to 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. 
  5. Stir a few Tablespoons of the sauce into 1/4 cup of sour cream to temper it so the sour cream doesn’t curdle then add it to the pan while stirring constantly.

  6. Stir in 1 Tbsp Worcestershire, 1/2 tsp dijon mustard, and season with 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper, or season to taste and continue simmering until sauce is creamy. Add beef with any accumulated juices back to the pan and bring just to a simmer or until beef is heated through.

Recipe Notes

For best results, be sure your meat is either: Top Sirloin, Boneless Ribeye steak, Beef Tenderloin (Filet Mignon), or Filet Mignon tips.

    I used almost a pound of ground beef, plus some precooked rib-eye steak…cut up….to make it to about a pound of meat. I have made Roy Andries de Groot’s stroganoff recipe (circa 1966) which calls for a more highly spiced, flavored sauce, so I added more dijon mustard plus some chili powder and paprika. tasted great! Using ground beef certainly makes the kitchen clean-up easier than searing meat at high temperatures with splatters everywhere! Thanks!

I highly recommend you use ribeyes and if that’s not your flavor, go with filet. If you don’t have to, don’t go cheap on the steak. Also, I used cornstarch as I prefer it over flour for thickening sauce. MAKE THIS DISH!

      Yes that would work. Beef stroganoff does reheat well and since it is in a cream sauce – it doesn’t have that reheated beef flavor, just heat over low heat just until warmed through and so the sauce doesn’t break and stays creamy.

      Hi Courtney, this recipe never lasted that long for us. A week might be pushing it, you may be able to freeze it. Here is what one of our readers wrote “I’ve heard from many sources that it DOES freeze very well (but it sounds like when you re-heat it you should take the meat out first and add back last minute so it doesn’t become dry/chewy)” I hope that helps.

    I multiplied this recipe by 15 and served I think 40-45 people at the El Cajon Elks Lodge in El Cajon CA. I served it over white rice because we already had that in the pantry.

    I used about 15 pounds of frozen sirloin steaks leftover from Valentine’s Day and chopped fine. The steaks were already cooked to medium rare before freezing so I prepared the onions and mushrooms first while heating the meat in the oven (didn’t want to add cold meat to a hot sauce). After the sauce was put together, I added the meat back in and simmered for about 15 minutes. Served with mixed vegetables and cookies.

    The best part was I had people telling me how their moms/grandmas used to make this for them. Some told me how they used to make it for their own kids a long time ago. Meals like this bring back happy memories of growing up or raising kids. But one lady told me that this recipe was better than hers and she thinks her kids got cheated.

    Hi Natasha! What an amazing recipe. I mean I traded beef for chicken, mushrooms for ham, sauce for bread crumbs, Worcestershire for tomato sauce, mustard for more tomato sauce, green onions for parsley, beef broth for chicken broth, whipping cream for tomato sauce? Sour cream for cool whhhip (ala Family Guy) black pepper for something more socially acceptable I don’t know what that is really, and flour for durum semolina. Oh and just kidding, I know you won’t post this. I love this recipe I’ve made it “exactly” as you’ve suggested and it’s amazeballs. Thank you so much for posting this.

    This was delish!
    I used Marsala wine instead of white wine. Didn’t have cream so I added more sour cream.
    The Worcestershire and Dijon added depth of flavor.

      This one is so special and so good! I’m glad it was a hit in your home too, Helen! Beef stroganoff does reheat well and since it is in a cream sauce – it doesn’t have that reheated beef flavor, just heat over low heat just until warmed through and so the sauce doesn’t break and stays creamy.

    I never review recipes, but this one warrants it: fantastic stroganoff, easily doubles and the tips for cooking like tempering the cream were helpful. This had such a hearty and deep, rich flavor that I’ll definitely short list it for the future. I salted and peppered the beef while searing in batches and out of necessity used a roasted veggie bouillon since we were out of beef. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

    I’ve made stroganoff before and compared to what my Mom used to make, they were flavorless, chewy globs. This recipe, however, was fantastic!! Easy instructions, incredibly flavorful … yum! The only change I made was 3 cloves of garlic vs. 1 because, you know, garlic. 😉

    My family loves beef stroganoff but I have made a less expensive version for years. However, it usually takes hours because of the lower quality of beef used. I was wondering if any other vegetable can be used instead of the mushrooms? I love them but my sons do not. I am trying to make a Christmas gathering dinner that everyone will love and it is difficult to find something everyone likes. Much appreciated.

      Hi Vanessa, I haven’t tried without mushrooms and they do impart great flavor. I think it would still work if you leave them out. Keep note, mushrooms do add quite a bit of flavor and you would miss them in this dish.

    OMG Natasha! I’ve never been to your site or used your recipes or even heard of you before, but when my foreign born spouse suggested beef stroganoff for our first family Christmas party this year (last night, the second will be traditional, this afternoon), I went perusing the internet for recipes as my past stroganoff creations were average and I wanted something more special.

    Enter your recipe. Last night we had a small, intimate family meal with his son and his son’s wife. I made the recipe to the letter after watching the video a couple times and reading the recipe and related content. Every plate was completely cleaned….. Before I even had time to sit down myself and eat…. While I was still in the kitchen…. I was being greeted with cries of more sauce??? So I took the whole pan out there, at which point, anything remaining was obliterated. I’ve never seen my daughter in law eat like that. She’s tiny, I doubt she weighs 100 lbs. I mean she enjoys food obviously, they’ve eaten with us many times, but the enthusiasm with which she and everyone else attacked their plates just left me beyond the moon satisfied!

    I can’t wait to dig more deeply into your content!

    Made this today. Only thing I did different was slice sirloin ultra thin and toss it in cornstarch before searing. Did this instead of flour. Let the meat simmer with mushrooms much longer after the searing step until it started to thicken slightly then added dairy last 5 min and had a very nice viscosity in the end. All in all a solid go to recipe, thank you!

    He probably figured after 15 years of being married he should share that secret with me (clearly it wasn’t a deal breaker).
    I suppose it’s about time I learned what my other options are that would pair nicely with the sauce? Any ideas would sure be appreciated.
