Classic Beef Stroganoff



  • Heat a large deep saute pan with lid to medium heat. Once the pan is hot add the oil, onions, garlic, and mushrooms to the pan, cooking for 3-5 minutes to soften. Stirring every 30 seconds or so.
  • Then add the ground beef to the pan. Using a heavy spatula break up the ground beef into smaller chunks, about the size of marbles. Cook the beef for 7-10 stirring often to prevent burning.
  • Once the beef has browned and looks almost cooked through, but might still have some pink you will want to remove most of the excess liquid (fat juice). To do this you can either strain the meat and mushrooms using a strainer or if there is not much in your pan you can use paper towel to dab away most of the liquid. However, you will want to reserve about 1 tablespoon to make a rue.
  • Next push the meat and mushrooms to the side, allowing any additional liquid to pool into the middle of the pan. Now add the flour into the liquid. Combine the flour and liquid together until the flour has turned into a soft paste.
  • Then add the cream of mushroom soup and uncooked noodles to the pan. Stir everything and using your spatula spread the burger, mushroom, noodle mixture out into an even layer. Sort of pushing the noodles into the sauce. Cover with a lid, turn the heat down to medium-low and cook for 10 minutes. Stir halfway thru.
  • After 10 minutes season with salt, pepper, and red pepper flake, and give another stir. Check on your noodles, they should be done by now, but if not cover with the lid and cook for another minute or 2.
  • Serve garnishing with a little sliced scallions and micro greens. (The garnish is optional, but is great for presentation if you are feeding friends or family)
