Notes

Best Cuts of Beef to Use for Beef Stroganoff

It's definitely important to use the right cut for this recipe. You want to make sure to use a quick cooking, tender cut of beef and stay away from tough cuts like chuck and short rib.
We use boneless sirloin steak in our beef stroganoff recipe, which is our top pick. We love this cut for beef stroganoff because it's tender, has some marbling on it and is still reasonably priced.
Other cuts of beef that work well in this recipe:
  • boneless ribeye steak
  • New York strip steak
  • sirloin steak tips

Tips and Tricks for Beef Stroganoff Success

  • Although Dijon mustard is commonly used in Beef Stroganoff, we use whole grain mustard in our recipe, which we think is such a game changer! The unground mustard seeds provide an overall bolder flavor and add a nice texture to the dish.
  • Searing the beef in a hot skillet is important. Searing the strips will give the beef a nice texture in the overall dish.
  • You want to sear the beef strips on each side quickly to ensure you don't overcook the beef, which will result in a dry and chewy texture.

Make Ahead and Freezing Our Beef Stroganoff Recipe

Make Ahead

Beef stroganoff can be made up to 3 days ahead of time and stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator until ready to use. If making ahead of time, it's best to keep the beef and mushroom gravy separate from the noodles until ready to serve, as the noodles will soak up a lot of the gravy and create a drier dish.
To reheat pour beef and gravy over medium heat and simmer (occasionally stirring) until mixture has just heated through and sauce thickens. Stir in the noodles and continue to simmer for an additional minute until noodles heat through. It's important to keep an eye on the beef so it doesn't overcook when reheated.

Freezing

Our recipe can be frozen for up to 2 months, stored in an airtight container in the freezer until ready to use. We recommend freezing the beef and gravy mixture with the noodles to prevent the noodles from becoming mushy when thawed.
When ready to use thaw beef stroganoff in the refrigerator. Once thawed, pour mixture into a skillet and simmer over medium heat until dish has just heated through, stirring occasionally. It's important to keep an eye on the beef so it doesn't overcook when reheated.
