ingredients in bowls to make beef stroganoff.

Ingredients

  • Beef– Make sure you start with juicy, tender cuts of beef for the best results. I recommend using top sirloin steak. Boneless rib eye or beef tenderloin are also good options. Slice it into 1/4-inch thick strips.
  • Olive oil– for sautéing.
  • Butter– to create a rich sauce.
  • Onion– diced.
  • Mushrooms– don’t wash mushrooms to clean them! Use a slightly damp towel to gently clean then off. I use white mushrooms, but cremini, baby portobellos, or shiitake mushrooms will also work.
  • Garlic– minced.
  • Flour– to thicken the sauce.
  • Beef broth– stock or beef bone broth will work too.
  • Worcestershire sauce– adds a savory and sweet flavor with a distinct tang thanks to the vinegar.
  • Dijon mustard– for a pungent, tangy kick!
  • Sour cream– make sure the sour cream is at room temperature so it whisks right into the sauce. You can also use plain Greek yogurt.
  • Chives– for garnish.

How to Make Beef Stroganoff

  • Season the steak strips with salt and pepper.
  • In a large deep skillet or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. When the oil is hot, add the steak strips to the pan, in a single layer. Cook for 1 minute, do not stir. Use tongs to flip the steak strips and cook for 1 more minute.
  • Transfer to a plate. If the beef strips won’t fit in an even layer, cook in 2 batches.
