Savvy Recipes ~ Beef Stroganoff (Family Favorite!)


This is a family favorite in my house and I honestly fell in love with Beef Stroganoff when I was in high school and spent the weekend with my best friend. Her father was a chef, believe it or not…. for the military! He was the most amazing cook and this was a dish he made on one of the weekends that I spent at their house. I was in love and started making it for my own family…. via his instructions when I was a bit older…. and it is a favorite that everyone loves and enjoys. Try it out for yourself!


*1 Pound Sirloin Steak (This is my favorite to use… but you can purchase Round Steak or Pre-sliced packages of thinly sliced steak for fajitas & stir fry….  as well and it is delicious! SLICE IT INTO THIN STRIPS

*2…. 8 ounce cans of sliced mushrooms (drained)

*1 Large White or Yellow Onion (Sliced in half and then Sliced Thinly)

*1/2 Stick of butter

*freshly minced garlic

*1 can Campbell’s (or any brand you want) of Beef Broth

*1 TB Better Than Bouillon Roasted Beef Base

*1/2 of a container of sour cream

*1 package of egg noodles (cooked al dente)


1)Thinly slice the steak and set aside.

2)Cut the Large Onion in half and slice thinly.

3)Drain the 2 8ounce cans of mushrooms…..

4)Saute the onion and mushrooms in 1/4 stick of butter until soft in a large skillet. Put the onions and mushrooms once cooked,  to a bowl and set aside.

5)Using the same pan… melt the remaining 1/4 stick of butter and add the strips of steak and some of the minced garlic.

6)Brown the strips of steak with garlic until all meat is browned.

7)Add the beef broth and a tablespoon of Better Than Bouillon Roasted Beef Base and simmer on low for about 25 to 30 minutes. (I always have a little extra beef broth so that I can cook and simmer even longer… the longer you simmer the more tender the strips of steak will be PLUS they are more flavorful. Just make sure to add a little more broth if the broth cooks down while simmering.)

8)After about 30 minutes of simmering… add the onions and mushrooms back to the mixture and simmer for another 5 to 10 minutes.

9)Add sour cream until you have a creamy broth mixture to serve over the egg noodles. Let simmer for a couple of minutes on medium low heat.

10)Serve on top of buttered egg noodles…. sprinkle a little freshly chopped parsley for brightness and enjoy! You can serve with a loaf of fresh bakery bread as well and/or a salad. DELICIOUS!

    I can’t wait to try out your special recipe for this Beef Stroganoff. I think it sounds delicious, and I hope I do as good as you did in the photos.

    Now this look more to my liking than the saucier version. I’ve tasted some that are so salty and have too much liquid in them. I like a lot of mushrooms in it too.

      IT is so delicious. You can use the low sodium version of beef broth too if you do not like a lot of salt…. you can always add but not take away 🙂 Also… you can add a little flower cooked with butter… equal amounts…. 2 tablespoons of each…. stir constantly in a small saucepan (flour & butter) so it does not burn but you get rid of that raw “flour” taste… and then add that to the sauce before adding the sour cream. Cook it in a bit and it will thicken….. then once thickened… add the sour cream to blend it in and serve! Delicious 🙂


    I’ve never seen stroganoff served with noodles before, just with rice, but I prefer noodles & have all the ingredients in the fridge so kitchen here I come!

      OH! I am so excited! Hope you loved it…. so glad you gave it a try. Really delicious for leftovers as well. I have double sided storage containers…. so I put the extra noodles on one side and the stroganoff sauce on the other. 🙂 Thanks and glad you liked it!

    Beef Stroganoff is one of my favorite meals. I like to make it with hamburger meat though. I don’t think I have ever eaten it using steak. I love how creamy it is and you don’t have to have a side item.

  • Christina Lambert

    Oh man this looks so so good! I need to make this for my family. I bet they would love it.

  • Sue E

    Beef Stroganoff is one of our family favorites also! The pictures look amazing and made me hungry! I was looking for a P to pin it, but I could not find one
    So it was copy & paste and saved the recipe as a file on my hard drive!
    As long as I am slicing up onions, I might as well slice up some fresh mushrooms when making this recipe.
    Thank you so much!
