Do You Have To Use Egg Noodles For Beef Stroganoff

Easy Beef Stroganoff Recipe | 1-Minute Video

First, a few quick notes about ingredients. (Amounts are included in the full recipe below. ) Include the following items on your shopping list for the best beef stroganoff recipe:

  • For this recipe, I especially like to use baby bella mushrooms, but you can use almost any kind or combination of mushrooms.
  • Steak: Any stir-fry-friendly cut of steak will do, but I suggest flank steak. To ensure that the steak is tender, thinly slice it against the grain. (Alternatively, if you would rather, you can use ground beef to make beef stroganoff. ).
  • Ingredients for the sauce: Traditional beef stroganoff sauce is made with butter, onion, garlic, white wine, beef stock, Worcestershire sauce, flour, and plain Greek yogurt (or sour cream). Feel free to substitute a little extra beef stock in place of the wine if you would rather not cook with it.
  • Egg Noodles: While rice, polenta, quinoa, zoodles, or any other type of noodles would be excellent, I always grew up eating stroganoff served over egg noodles.
  • Last but not least, feel free to add some chopped fresh parsley for a vibrant garnish. In addition, I always like to add a dash more black pepper.

Why I LOVE this recipe:

  • 30 minute meal. One of those timeless dishes that’s ideal for hectic weeknights is this one.
  • Ground beef. Unlike other stroganoff recipes, but oh so tasty, affordable, and simple!
  • Make ahead. See my make-ahead instructions below for instructions on how to prepare the beef sauce in advance and cook the noodles just before serving.

I’ve included a link to my simple homemade cream of mushroom soup recipe if you’d prefer not to use it. Additionally, I’ve discovered that Greek yogurt works really well in place of sour cream!

How to make beef stroganoff:

  • Brown the beef. Brown the ground beef and add garlic and onion,.
  • Add mushrooms and broth. After the beef has been drained of its grease, simmer the mushrooms and beef broth.
  • Stir in sour cream and serve over egg noodles.
  • Serve. This is a go-to quick weeknight meal for our family.

The fact that this stroganoff recipe calls for ground beef is one of my favorite things about it. Since I rarely have steak on hand for a dinner like this, I don’t use steak. However, I usually always have some ground beef in my freezer, ready to go for when the hectic dinner rush hits.

All varieties of beef can be substituted for the beef called for in stroganoff recipes, including:

  • Top sirloin
  • Beef tenderloin
  • Boneless ribeye
  • Filet mignon
