Being of Norwegian descent, I really don't know how this Russian beef stroganoff came into the family. My grandma has made this recipe for 50 years that I know of and it is truly my favorite. Serve over noodles. For a wintertime comfort food this is the best. I actually like it so much that my wife and I will have this for dinner and the next morning we will eat the leftovers with a couple of eggs on the side for brunch. You can't beat it!

Instructions Checklist
  • Combine 1 1/2 tablespoons flour with salt and pepper in a bowl. Dredge beef strips in the mixture.

  • Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a skillet over medium heat. Add the dredged beef strips; cook and stir until browned, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms, onion, and garlic; cook until onion is barely tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer the beef and mushroom mixture to a plate.

  • Melt remaining butter in the same skillet; reduce heat to low. Stir in 3 tablespoons flour and tomato paste; cook until slightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Increase heat to medium. Add beef stock slowly, stirring constantly, until gravy is thickened and no lumps remain, 5 to 10 minutes.

  • Return the beef and mushroom mixture to the skillet with the gravy. Stir in sour cream and sherry; heat until bubbling, about 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Creme fraiche can be substituted for the sour cream.

By far one of the better Beef Stroganoff recipes we have tried. I enjoyed making it, and while it is a bit labor intensive, it is still a relatively quick and deeply satisfying meal. Next time around I will start by adding a Half Cup of Sour Cream and adjust from there. I feel that one cup of sour cream covered up some of the great flavors that were building through the process. Thank you! Read More

I've always made it this way. I don't usually have Sherry, so I sometimes use a dry red wine and some Worcestershire. I never use cooking wine or cooking Sherry though. Read More

I followed the recipe as written, but I used NY steaks because that’s what we had in our freezer. Read More

My only experience with beef stroganoff over the years has sadly been though TV dinners; but I liked it anyway. Finally as an adult and a father I had my 8 year old (two nights before her 9th birthday) make this recipe with me and my own grandmother. It was helpful to have my grandmother present while making the gravy because I d seen her make various gravies in the past but never done one myself. We almost lost it but her help saved us. That part is VERY time-sensitive. Overall it was good but I must say that it wasn t a best ever recipe. I ll need to play with it in the future to make it stand out more. All four kids were OK with it (one basically just ate the steak). Definitely a recipe to try again but as a base with modifications performed. Read More
