Beef Stroganoff with Sour Cream

This delicious recipe for beef stroganoff with cream is perfect for a chilly winter evening. It is packed with flavor and really meaty. Because of that, you might want to make it regularly.

I used beef sirloin steak to make this and fresh mushrooms. Use a good quality steak as well as fresh mushrooms, since those are the main ingredients.

An Easy Way to Slice the Steak

It’s easier to slice the beef if it’s slightly frozen, so you might want to pop it in the freezer for a while (don’t forget about it in there!) Else if you are using a thawed steak, you can wait until it’s nearly thawed. Let it warm up to room temperature before cooking the recipe.

When you are mixing the broth with the flour, try to get it into a smooth slurry. This allows it to blend properly into the sauce and not go lumpy. Bringing the stroganoff to a boil will cook out the flour flavor and thicken up the sauce.
