Beef Stroganoff

Beef stroganoff is delicious meal, with tender strips of beef, sautéed mushrooms, a creamy sour cream based sauce and can be served with pasta, rice or mashed potato. This isn’t a dinner to make for someone watching their weight but it certainly is a winter comfort food.  We also like to sneak in some extra vegetables like grated carrot and zucchini.


Beef Stroganoff

  • Prep Time: 15 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Total Time: 45 mins


  • 1 kg thinly sliced beef strips
  • 1/3 cup plain flour

  1. In a zip lock bag place in the flour, salt, pepper, paprika and beef strips, seal bag and shake to evenly coat beef in spices.

This is the most delicious beef stroganoff that I have ever tasted! The beef stays so tender because of the method. I will keep this on weeknight rotations! Thank you for such a great recipe!
