Recipe notes

Beef – One of the most important rules for getting juicy, tender beef, is using the right cut. For a quick-cooking recipe like Beef Stroganoff, you can’t get away with using a tougher and cheaper cut like chuck beef. You’ll need to use a good quality steak that is nicely marbled with fat.
While it might seem unnatural to not throw a delicious, marbled steak on the grill, there’s also something truly special about combining a good steak and that delicious sour cream mushroom gravy. 

The best cuts for stroganoff are
  • Scotch fillet steak
  • Boneless sirloin steaks
  • Beef tenderloin

We don’t recommend topside steak – even though it’ll produce a good flavour, it’ll often be dry in texture. It’s much better cooked low and slow. Check out our guide to the best cuts of beef for more information.

Portobello mushrooms – We love portobello mushrooms for the punchy flavour they add to the mushroom gravy. But if you don’t have them on hand, feel free to substitute them with any other type of mushroom such as white or brown button mushrooms.

What should you serve with beef stroganoff?
Beef stroganoff is delicious with anything that will soak up the delicious stroganoff sauce. We love to serve it with a creamy mash like the one found in our Beef schnitzel recipe, or over egg noodles, pasta, rice, polenta, or even cauliflower mash.  

Can you freeze beef stroganoff?
Yes! Before eating, you’ll just need to thaw then reheat, being careful not to overcook the beef. 
Beef stroganoff will last 3-4 days in the fridge or up to 3 months in the freezer.
