How To Make Beef Stroganoff
Start by cutting your steak thinly against the grain into strips, to ensure a tender bite.
PRO TIP – freeze the steak for about 15 minutes prior to slicing to get a good thin cut.
Season the steak strips with salt and pepper, then quickly sear the steak strips in a hot skillet. Make sure you don’t over cook the steak!
Sauté the onions and mushrooms in the same skillet with some butter until tender.
Make a quick gravy in the skillet and then add the steak strips back in.

- You can swap out the sour cream for plain Greek yogurt if desired.
