Easy Beef Stroganoff

This easy beef stroganoff recipe is one of the easiest and tastiest things you can make for the family on a busy weeknight!


  • ▢1 ½ pounds sirloin steak cut 1/2″ thick
  • ▢3 tablespoons flour divided
  • ▢½ teaspoon seasoned salt
  • ▢½ teaspoon pepper
  • ▢2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ▢2 tablespoons butter
  • ▢1 small onion diced
  • ▢8 ounces mushrooms sliced
  • ▢1 clove garlic minced
  • ▢14 ½ ounces beef broth
  • ▢2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • ▢½ tablespoon dijon mustard
  • ▢½ teaspoon thyme
  • ▢½ cup sour cream


  • Toss beef with 1 tablespoon flour, salt & pepper. Shake off excess flour.
  • Heat olive oil over medium high heat in a saucepan. Brown beef in small batches until lightly browned, about 1 minute on each side. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • Reduce heat to medium and add butter & onion. Cook until softened, about 4-5 minutes.
  • Add mushrooms & garlic and cook until softened, about 4 minutes more. Stir in 2 tablespoons of flour and cook 1 minute.
  • Add broth, Worcestershire sauce, dijon mustard, and thyme. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. (You can thicken the sauce further if desired, see note).
  • Add beef (with any juices). Cook 2 minutes more or just until heated through. Stir in sour cream.
  • Season with salt & pepper and serve over egg noodles and garnish with parsley.

Recipe Notes

  • Brown the beef at a medium-high temperature but don’t cook it all the way through (it’s steak, it can be pink inside).
  • Brown in small batches, if the pan is overcrowded, it’ll steam and won’t get a nice crust.
  • Thicken the sauce if needed with a cornstarch slurry (combine equal parts cornstarch and water and add to boiling sauce a little at a time).
  • Add sour cream at the end and just heat it. Boiling sour cream can cause it to curdle.
  • Reheat it on low if needed.
