Beef Stroganoff Recipe

A creamy and savory dish featuring tender beef strips, mushrooms, and onions in a rich sour cream sauce, traditionally served over egg noodles.


  • 1 lb beef sirloin or tenderloin, thinly sliced into strips
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour (optional, for thickening)
  • 2 tablespoons butter (optional, for added richness)
  • Cooked egg noodles, for serving
  • Fresh parsley, chopped, for garnish


  1. Prepare the Beef: Season the beef strips with salt and pepper.
  2. Sear the Beef: In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the beef strips and cook until browned on all sides. Remove the beef from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Cook the Onions and Garlic: In the same skillet, add the chopped onions and cook until they are soft and translucent. Add the minced garlic and cook for another minute.
  4. Add the Mushrooms: Add the sliced mushrooms to the skillet and cook until they release their moisture and become tender.
  5. Deglaze the Skillet: Pour in the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, and Dijon mustard. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer.
  6. Thicken the Sauce (Optional): If you prefer a thicker sauce, mix the all-purpose flour with a bit of water to create a slurry, then add it to the skillet. Stir and cook until the sauce has thickened.
  7. Add the Sour Cream: Lower the heat to medium and return the beef strips to the skillet. Stir in the sour cream until the sauce is smooth and creamy. If using, add the butter for extra richness.
  8. Adjust Seasoning: Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper as needed.
  9. Serve: Serve the Beef Stroganoff over cooked egg noodles. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley.
