Southern Beef Stroganoff

I don’t know about anyone else, but I have a long list of what I consider to be my favorite comfort foods and Beef Stroganoff is definitely on that list.  Tender bites of beef and mushrooms in a rich brown gravy, atop a bed of hot buttered egg noodles.  What could be better on a cold winter day?  I know…some hot buttered bread on the side.  Not only is Beef Stroganoff delicious, it’s also easy to make.

Here’s how I made it…   

I started by adding 1/2 pound of Angus Top Sirloin, that I had cut into bite size pieces, and a small amount of oil to a dutch oven…

Then I seared the meat on all sides and transferred it to a plate.  I repeated this step, by searing a second half pound of meat and transferring it to a plate…

Next, I added some butter to the dutch oven and let it melt.  I tossed in some fresh mushrooms and diced onions and sautéed them for about 20 minutes…

Meantime, I whisked together some beef broth, Dijon mustard, sour cream, milk and Worcestershire sauce in a measuring cup…

Once the mushrooms and onions were cooked through, I transferred them to a plate with the meat…

Next, I added some flour to the drippings in the dutch oven.  I whisked the flour for about a minute, giving the flour taste time to cook out…

Then I added the wet ingredients in the measuring cup to the dutch oven and started whisking it over medium heat…

I whisked it until it started to bubble up and thicken…

And turned the heat down to low and tossed in the meat and mushrooms…

Lastly, I mixed the meat and mushrooms into the gravy and left it on the heat for a minute to warm the meat and mushrooms back up and it was ready to serve…

I served it over some hot buttered wide egg noodles and garnished it with a little fresh parsley.  Talk about comfort food!

Hope you enjoy!

  • I used a mixture of Cremini, Shitake & Oyster mushrooms, but any mushroom will work.
