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!

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.
