Who This Recipe Is For
This Homemade Beef Stroganoff recipe is perfect for anyone looking to elevate their dinner game with minimal effort. Whether you’re a seasoned home cook or just starting out on your culinary adventure, this recipe is designed to be simple, straightforward, and oh-so-delicious. It’s also a fantastic option for busy weeknights when you need a hearty meal that can be whipped up in no time.

Why It’s Great
What sets this Homemade Beef Stroganoff apart is its rich and creamy sauce, which gets its depth of flavor from a combination of beef broth, sour cream, and a hint of Dijon mustard. The tender strips of beef and earthy mushrooms add a satisfying texture that pairs perfectly with the velvety sauce. Plus, this recipe is incredibly versatile—you can serve it over egg noodles, mashed potatoes, or even rice, depending on your preference.


For the Beef Stroganoff:
1 lb beef sirloin, thinly sliced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
8 oz mushrooms, sliced
1 cup beef broth
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 cup sour cream
Salt and pepper to taste
Chopped fresh parsley for garnish
For Serving:
Cooked egg noodles, mashed potatoes, or rice

Step 1: Sear the Beef
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the sliced beef sirloin and cook until browned on all sides, about 5 minutes. Remove the beef from the skillet and set aside.

Step 2: Saute the Aromatics
In the same skillet, add the chopped onion and minced garlic. Cook until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook until they release their juices and become tender, about 5 minutes.

Step 3: Make the Sauce
Return the cooked beef to the skillet. Stir in the beef broth and Dijon mustard, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Simmer for 5 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together. Remove the skillet from the heat and stir in the sour cream until smooth and creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Step 4: Serve
Serve the Homemade Beef Stroganoff over cooked egg noodles, mashed potatoes, or rice. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley for a pop of color and flavor. Enjoy!

Storing Leftovers
If you have any leftovers (which is rare because this dish is so delicious!), store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Simply reheat in the microwave or on the stovetop until heated through.

Food Pairings
Pair this Homemade Beef Stroganoff with a glass of full-bodied red wine, such as Cabernet Sauvignon or Merlot, to complement the richness of the dish. For a complete meal, serve with a side of steamed vegetables or a crisp green salad.

Can I use a different cut of beef?
Yes, feel free to use whatever cut of beef you prefer or have on hand. Just make sure to slice it thinly against the grain for the most tender results.

Can I make this recipe ahead of time?
Absolutely! You can prepare the Homemade Beef Stroganoff up to a day in advance and simply reheat it before serving. This makes it a great option for entertaining or meal prep.

Can I freeze leftovers?
While you can technically freeze leftovers, the texture of the sour cream sauce may change slightly upon reheating. If you do choose to freeze leftovers, I recommend thawing them in the refrigerator overnight before reheating.
