An easy and comforting homemade Beef Stroganoff recipe for all the family! A delicious and quick weeknight dinner of tender steak strips and mushrooms cooked in a rich and creamy gravy that is served with potatoes or pasta and fresh bread for wiping up all the saucy goodness!
Beef Stroganoff is one of those hearty comfort foods that just seems to soothe the soul. It’s the kind of dish that you crave on a cold winters night and that the whole family love.
My mum calls these kinds of saucy, comfort foods “bread sopping” meals, because often the best part is wiping up all the sauce at the end with a fresh slice of buttery bread!
I will be honest and say that until recently, the only beef Stroganoff I’d had was made from a sachet. I am ashamed to say it, I know. So after deciding that I needed to find an actual beef Stroganoff recipe, I began searching the internet for the very best one.
The first recipe I tried did not go well at all. The sauce wasn’t very creamy and was actually really oily due to having quite a lot of tomato paste in it. But the thing I found weird was that it didn’t call for any onions. That was one of the few ingredients I was sure of. I was thoroughly disappointed by the results but was determined to continue my search.
The next one I tried wasn’t right either. It was alright, but it was just missing something. After the third recipe not working out, I realised that I needed to create my own recipe. So I did some experimenting and after a few attempts (and lots of beef Stroganoff dinners!) I finally got it!
