“Beef Stroganoff is one of those recipes that everyone who makes it has a slightly different version. This is certainly not how I remember Mama, or Gma making it. They didn't cook with herbs at all as I recall.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, add mushrooms and cook until they begin to soften, about 3 minutes; season with salt and pepper, stir, transfer to a bowl.
  2. Meanwhile, generously season beef with salt and pepper and toss with the flour to coat on all sides; add 2 tablespoons oil, increase heat to medium high, and brown meat well on all sides, about 10 minutes; add to bowl with mushrooms.
  3. Pour the wine into the skillet and let it reduce by half as you loosen any browned bits stuck to the bottom of the skillet, 2 minutes; add to bowl.
  4. Reduce heat back to medium and add butter; saute onions and garlic, stirring frequently to prevent burning, until onions soften, about 3-4 minutes.
  5. Return contents of bowl back to skillet and stir in chicken stock, and Worcestershire sauce; cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce thickens up a bit, about 10 minutes (if it does not thicken to your liking, you can make a slurry with 1 teaspoon cornstarch and a little water just to make it pourable).
  6. Turn off heat, stir in sour cream and herbs.
  7. Serve over butter fettucine or egg noodles.
