Chef’s Tips for ground beef stroganoff without mushrooms

Use a cheaper brand of ground beef, like 93% lean. I don’t think it makes that much of a difference in the end product. It also depends on what you are going for. If you want to make stroganoff with mushrooms and be authentic, use the real thing. I used a mixture of ground beef and pork because that’s what I had on hand. It was also cheaper for me to use pork than beef. For the heavy cream, you can substitute half & half or sour cream. For the sour cream, you can use a low-fat or non-fat version. You could also substitute egg yolks for the sour cream. That would make it more like borscht.

TOOLS TO MAKE beef stroganoff

non-stick skillet, flat blade or whisk, medium or large mixing bowl, spatula, knife, cutting board


Store stroganoff in the refrigerator for 3-4 days.


Q: Do I have to use a non-stick skillet?

A: An uncoated non-stick skillet is best for making stroganoff. If you don’t have one, coat the bottom of the pan with cooking spray before adding any ingredients.

Q Is it okay to substitute other types of beef?

A Yes. You could use ground round instead of stew meat. You could also use ground sirloin instead of top round.

Q What should I serve with stroganoff?

You can serve stroganoff over rice or noodles. You could also serve it with a mixed green salad and some fruit if you like.
