What Is Stroganoff?
For those of you who like a little trivia, Beef Stroganoff is actually a Russian dish, which I’m sure the name gave it away, of sautéed beef served in a sour cream sauce. Apparently, its origins are from somewhere in the mid 19th century, but since then has become really popular with many different variations.
Detailed measurements and instructions can be found on the printable recipe card at the bottom of the page.
- Beef – I used beef sirloin cut into strips.
- Mushrooms – Cremini is a great mushroom for this recipe, it is nice and mild and cooks down very well without turning too rubbery. White mushrooms work just as well.
- Butter – Unsalted butter is best for this dish as we want to control our sodium content.
- Aromatics – Make sure to pick up some fresh garlic and a large white or yellow onion. If using minced garlic keep in mind that 1 1/2 teaspoons equal one fresh clove.
- Broth – Low sodium beef stock or broth will be added for flavor and liquid in our sauce.
- Smoked paprika – This will add a sweet yet smokey note to our finished dish – delish!
- Worcestershire sauce – This will add seasoning and umami to our finished dish, it can be substituted with low sodium soy sauce if need be.
- Sour cream – No need for milk or cream for our sauce! Sour cream is a traditional addition that adds some acidity to an otherwise super rich dish.
- Pasta – I used some egg noodles which are my favorite, but any pasta will do.
- Salt & pepper – To taste.
- Parsley – Chopped up finely and sprinkled liberally on top of your finished dish!
How To Make Beef Stroganoff Soup
- Brown the beef: In a large Dutch oven add the olive oil and butter and heat over medium-high heat then add the beef sirloin pieces and generously season with salt and pepper. Cook until the meat is slightly browned, about 5 minutes. Using a slotted spoon transfer the meat to a plate.
- Create the flavor base: Add the mushrooms, onion, garlic, stir and saute until the vegetables soften, about 3 minutes. Add the Worcestershire sauce, smoked paprika, and the beef broth. Stir everything together, bring to a boil then add the beef back to the pot.
- Cook the noodles: Stir in the noodles and cook for about 8 minutes or until the noodles are cooked to your liking.
- Incorporate the sour cream: In a small bowl whisk the sour cream together with about 1/2 cup of the hot soup then pour back into the pot and stir. Taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper as necessary. Garnish with parsley and serve.
What Cut Of Beef Is Best?
I like to use a nice sirloin cut as it is well marbled and full of flavor. It also becomes tender during long cooking times and won’t get as hard and chewy as other cuts. Place your beef in the freezer for a short while before slicing up your beef for an easier time slicing. Be sure to slice against the grain.
What Can I Serve Beef Stroganoff Soup With?
This delicious soup is perfect for a rainy day or just about any day of the year when you’d like something comforting and rich. I personally like to just serve it up with some Dinner Rolls or some crusty Bread. It makes a super satisfying meal all on its own!
What Kind Of Noodles Should I Use?
Egg noodles are the traditional choice for any and all beef stroganoff – but that doesn’t mean it’s your only option! Any and all small shaped pasta taste delectable in this recipe, including elbow, rigatoni, callentalli, or bow tie. Just keep in mind that this may effect the cooking time.
