Beef Stroganoff Recipe From Scratch

Easy to make Beef Stroganoff From Scratch is always a family favorite.

Beef Stroganoff Recipe From Scratch

This was one of the first recipes I shared on the blog. It's also our family's all time favorite dinner! 
I knew it was time for a few better picture's! 
Plus it was a great excuse to make Beef Stroganoff the other night and share our all time favorite meal.
There's just something about the beef and mushrooms in a creamy sour cream sauce smothered over noodles.
This isn't that dreaded stuff that comes in a box folks! This is the real deal! 
If you've been looking for a Beef Stroganoff recipe look no further. This ones D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S! 
I stirred the egg noodles in for the pictures but I prefer the sauce over the top of the  noodles instead. (Like the picture below.)
Just my own little opinion!

(Original picture of recipe above.)
 My daughter has been asking me to make this for a couple of weeks, for a kid that doesn't like mushroom, she doesn't even blink at them in stroganoff!  When the kids asked the other night what was for dinner and I said "stroganoff" they started dancing around and saying yippee! I should have taken a picture but I was over come with their excitement! This is serious man food ladies! Sure to please! One tip DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT use non stick cookware besides being bad for your health you will not achieve  ultimate caramelization!
UPDATE- This recipe has been highly reviewed on Tasty Kitchen one reviewer even made it with greek yogurt in exchange for the sour cream! I am going to give it a try and will update everyone with the out come!

 Here's what you need: sirloin steak, onion, mushrooms,garlic, flour, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, pepper, butter, olive oil, beef broth, worcestershire sauce, sour cream and cooked egg noodles (not pictured).Cube steak into bit size pieces a little larger then the finished size. (It will shrink)
Cut onions, mushrooms and garlic, set aside.
 Coat steak with seasoned  flour.
Caramelize onions in 2 tablespoons butter over medium-high heat.
Add mushrooms and garlic and cook until starting to brown.
 Remove onions, mushrooms and garlic to a separate bowl.
Melt another 2 tablespoons butter add steak.
Brown the mean on all sides and move to the bowl with mushrooms and onions.
When you remove the meat you will have this nice brown carmalization on the bottom. Turn down heat to medium. Slowly poor in 1/2 cup  beef broth while whisking or scraping,  add remaining 1/2 cup of beef broth, worcestershire sauce,and heat through. Add beef and mushroom mixture to sauce and stir to combine. Cook until heated through and turn stove to low. Add sour cream and mix thoroughly until heated.
Finished! Yumm! Serve over Egg Noodles.
(This pictures old but I think it serves it's purpose.)

  2. Ohh, we haven't had stroganoff in sooo looong! I will have to make and try your recipe. :) Thank you for the pan tip! Have a wonderful day!

  3. Great post, an I love the comment you made about using non-stick pans. I am 100% with you. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  4. Thanks for tonight's dinner, looks so good, wish me luck that mine turns out.

  5. I would jump around also if my mom made this. It looks delish. I am going to make it soon.

  6. Very glad you stopped by so I could find my way here. Some great recipes!! blessings ~ Tanna

  7. This recipe looks so much better than the stroganoff recipe I tried a few weeks ago. Thanks!

  8. Thanks so much for your sweet comment on my little car caddy! You have so many great recipes on here! I look forward to trying some! Have a great week!

  9. This looks so good Serena! My family would love this. They love anything with pasta, beef and mushrooms. I pinned it for you! Have a wonderful weekend! Angie xo

  10. I am SO making this! It looks amazing. This was a popular family dinner when I was a kid.

  11. I love beef stroganoff! Your's looks absolutely delicious! Creamy and flavorful! If your daughter will eat the mushrooms, I'm sure mine will too!

  12. Lovely meal, such comfort food!

  13. Thanks for the great recipe and photos! I linked to your recipe on my blog - Thanks again!

  14. I think I am going to start crying I am too lazy to get up and make myself food and I am watching this while I am hungry and carving for pasta.

  15. Made this today and even though I changed it up a bit using what ingredients I had (canned mushrooms and shredded chuck roast) it turned out really good! The caramelized onions really made a difference, I'm sticking with this recipe from now on. Thank you.

  16. I have made stroganoff many times over the years. Everything from exotic Cook's Illustrated recipes to Hamburger Helper. This was the best. I used fat free Greek yogurt instead of sour cream - I'm sure sour cream is better, but this was still the best. Relatively simple, too.


  17. Looking yummy in the image too :)

  18. Has anyone tried freezing the sauce from this recipe? Would it freeze well?

    1. I've never tried freezing this recipe but if you made it up to the point before you added the sour cream and then added the sour cream when reheating it should hold together well. When the sour cream or greek yogurt is overheated it separates a little bit..

  19. Beef Broth??? I thought you really do cook from scratch:(

    1. I'm sorry you feel disappointed with my recipe calling for beef broth. Beef broth or stock can be made from scratch by boiling beef bones in water with onion, carrots, celery, thyme, rosemary, salt and pepper for 4-6 hours like making chicken stock. There are also many high quality beef broths available on the market for convience, I don't use cake mixes or condensed soups in my recipes.

  20. I'm gonna try this for my wife tonight.
    I'm not much of a cook, so wish me luck :)

    1. Let me know how it goes John! I think the biggest tip I can give you is make sure to remove the sauce from the heat before stirring in the sour cream so it doesn't curdle! I hope she loves it as much as we do!

  21. I made this recipe last night, it was delicious. Even my husband who does not like mushrooms enjoyed this dish.

    1. Hi Rachel, I'm so glad everyone love it! Thanks for letting me know!
