  • 2 tablespoons (1oz) butter salted or unsalted is fine
  • 8 ounces button mushrooms sliced
  • 1/4 cup diced onions
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 1 pound top sirloin sliced across the grain into 3 x 1/4-inch strips
  • 2 tablespoons (15g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 10.5-ounce can beef consommé *
  • 3 tablespoons dry sherry
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Salt
  • 8 ounces (4 cups) egg noodles
  • 1 cup (8oz) sour cream


Start Stroganoff

  • In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add mushrooms, onions, and garlic, and cook until tender, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  • Turn heat up to medium-high and add sliced sirloin. Cook until browned. Stir in flour, followed by consommé, sherry, lemon juice, and pepper, and stir until well-combined.
  • Bring to a boil and then reduce heat. Simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Start Egg Noodles

  • While your sauce simmers, bring a lightly salted pot of water to a boil and cook egg noodles according to package instructions. Drain and set aside.

Finish Stroganoff

  • Measure sour cream out into a medium bowl. Ladle about ¼ cup of the hot cooking liquid into the sour cream and whisk until well-combined. Repeat this process until sour cream is very warm to the touch.*
  • Stir the warmed sour cream into your beef mixture and add salt to taste.
  • Serve over egg noodles and ENJOY!


* If you can't find beef consommé, you can replace is with 2 cups of beef broth. 
* This step will temper the sour cream so it doesn't break when the sour cream hits the hot liquid. It creates a smoother, prettier sauce but is optional.
