What is Beef Stroganoff
Beef Stroganoff or Beef Stroganov is a Russian dish made with sautéed beef pieces in a creamy and savory sauce served over egg noodles.
Originating in mid-19th century Russia, there are many versions of stroganoff around the world. The most popular version in the United States is made with mushrooms in a rich and savory sauce made with sour cream.
Ingredients To Make Ground Beef Stroganoff
- Ground Beef – You can use ground chicken, ground turkey or ground pork.
- Onions – Use your favorite kind. I usually use brown or white onions for this dish.
- Mushrooms – For this stroganoff recipe I used white mushrooms. Baby bellas or creminis can be used instead.
- Garlic – Fresh is best for this stroganoff recipe.
- Butter – Unsalted or salted.
- Flour – I use all-purposed flour.
- Mustard – Dijon mustard is perfect for this dish.
- Sour Cream – I use full-fat sour cream because it makes the sauce richer and creamier.
How To Make Ground Beef Stroganoff
- In a large skillet, brown the ground beef until no longer pink. Season the hamburger meat with salt, pepper and dried thyme.
- Transfer the beef to a bowl.
- To make the Stroganoff sauce, in the same skillet melt the butter and cook the onions, garlic and mushrooms.
- Stir in the flour and cook for about a minute, this will help to get rid of any raw flour taste.
- Stir in half the beef broth. When incorporated add the remaining broth, Dijon mustard and Worcestershire sauce.
- Return the beef to the skillet and bring to a boil. Lower the heat and and simmer.
- Cook your egg noodles.
- To add creaminess and the distinctive taste of beef stroganoff, add the sour cream and simmer on low heat for a few minutes. Make sure the sauce doesn’t boil after adding the sour cream. Boiling the sour cream can cause it to curdle.
- Check for seasoning and serve over hot noodles. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and enjoy!
