  1. Place the beef into a large bowl. Stir in the red wine, salt, and black pepper. Marinate for 10 minutes, then remove the beef and pat dry with a paper towel. Reserve the remaining marinade. Watch Now
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in the beef; cook and stir until browned, then transfer to a plate, 5 to 7 minutes. Drain any remaining grease from the skillet.

  3. Melt another 2 tablespoons butter in the same skillet over medium heat, and stir in the mushrooms. Cook and stir until the mushrooms are tender, about 10 minutes.

Slowly whisk in the beef stock. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, then reduce heat to medium low. Pour in the reserved red wine marinade, Worcestershire sauce, prepared mustard, and red pepper flakes, then add the beef and onion mixture. Cover and simmer until the meat is tender, about 1 hour. Season with salt and black pepper. Watch Now

I used a cheap cut of meat and half the amount called for (beef stew meat--hey, on a tight food budget!) and only a pound which meant a) I had to simmer my meat just a little longer and b) I dou...

We've made this a couple times now. The first time the spice was overpowering, and this last time the flavor was just bad. The meat had no flavor, and the gravy just wasn't good.

This is absolutely delicious! The only thing I would change to make it a fool-proof dish is to use beef tenderloin for the meat--it cooks faster and is always tender. It's worth the extra $$ for...

My husband raved about this recipe! I did not marinate in red wine, and the flavor was great without it. As other reviewers mentioned, I subbed dijon for yellow mustard. Instead of red pepper fl...

Oh. My. Word. You know those recipes that you just have to try because they have 3,000+ five-star ratings, and they turn out to be AWESOME? This deserves thousands of five-star ratings! I left ...

Used a cut of top sirloin as that's all I had available without going to the store for chuck roast. Stroganoff was very creamy and thick, but I found the wine marinade to be a tad strong and ma...

Very tasty and delicious Stroganoff. I used the rest of my Christmas Prime Rib, cut into thin strips instead of the chuck roast recommended. Sauteed the onions, garlic and mushrooms together, se...

Excellent recipe. Followed as written, used a cast iron pan. Will definitely make again, would be perfect for company.

Loved it even more before adding the cream cheese & sour cream... so next time I make this I'll leave those 2 things out. I made the following variations since I do NOT like tough or chewey m...

Best recipe I've found for Stroganoff! I used white wine instead of red and next time I'll cut the crushed red pepper in half. We love some spice but this was a little too much for us.
