Making Beef and Mushroom Stroganoff does require some preparation time, but it’s well worth the effort! Start by gathering your ingredients: 1 lb. of sliced beef (top round or sirloin), eight oz of sliced white mushrooms, one diced onion, four tablespoons of butter, one cup of sour cream, two tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce, salt, and pepper to taste. Now let’s get started!


1) Begin by heating two tablespoons of butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

2) Add the beef and season with salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes until the beef is lightly browned, stirring occasionally.

3) Transfer the cooked beef to a plate, set aside, and cover to keep warm.

4) Reduce the heat to medium-low. Add two more tablespoons of butter in the same skillet, followed by diced onion and mushrooms.

5) Sauté for 10 minutes or until all liquid has evaporated from the pan and mushrooms are lightly browned, stirring frequently.

6) Increase heat back to medium-high and add Worcestershire sauce and previously cooked beef. Stir all ingredients together until combined.

7) Now, it’s time to create the delicious sauce! Add beef broth and boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for 5 minutes.

8) In a small bowl, whisk together 1/4 cup of flour with 1/2 cup of water until there are no lumps. Pour this mixture into the skillet and stir until well combined.

9) Let the sauce simmer for 3-5 minutes or until it has thickened. Finally, add sour cream and give everything a good stir.

10) Serve over egg noodles or rice, and enjoy!
