Beef Stroganoff Recipe

Beef stroganoffThis classic Russian dish of sauteed beef with creamy sauce has since become a universally loved and recognized dish around the world.  It was originally developed by a member of the Stroganov family, a wealthy Russian noble family who were prominent in Imperial Russia.  The dish goes best with noodles, rice or even mashed potatoes.  I recently found a recipe to make it online, listed below:


2 pounds beef chuck roast

½ teaspoon salt

½ teaspoon ground black pepper

4 ounces butter

4 green onions sliced (white parts only)

4 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 10.5 can condensed beef broth

1 teaspoon prepared mustard

1 6 ounce can sliced mushrooms

⅓ cup sour cream

⅓ cup white wine

Salt & pepper to taste


Cut beef into strips ½ inch thick by 2 inches long, and season with ½ teaspoon of both salt and pepper

In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter and brown the beef strips quickly, then push the beef strips to one side

Add onions and cook slowly for 3 to 5 minutes, then push to the side with the beef strips

Stir the flour into the juices on the empty side of the pan

Pour in beef broth and bring to a boil, stirring constantly

Lower the heat and stir in mustard

Cover and simmer for 1 hour until the meat is tender

Five minutes before serving, stir in mushrooms, sour cream and white wine

Heat briefly and then add salt and pepper to taste
