Classic Beef Stroganoff
This beef stroganoff recipe from Betty Crocker is rich with flavor. Not only is it super simple to prepare, but it’s also extremely savory, from its buttered mushroom and onion mix to its tender beef chunks. Additionally, sour cream and Worcestershire sauce add flavor and creaminess to the meat base. Although the recipe is bursting with taste, it only calls for a handful of ingredients and 20 minutes of active prep time, making it a perfect dish for chefs of all skill levels.
Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff with Healthier Ingredients
Well Plated created this yummy version of beef stroganoff for folks who need to cut down on certain food groups for health reasons. For example, the recipe calls for sirloin, a healthier cut of beef with less fat than other cuts. It also swaps trades sour cream for Greek yogurt, which works similarly to enhance the texture of the cream sauce while providing a nice dose of protein. Additionally, the recommended whole wheat egg noodles are rich in protein and fiber. With thyme, parsley and dill weed added in for flavor, this healthier spin doesn't sacrifice taste.
Vegetarian "Beef" Stroganoff
If you can't imagine beef stroganoff as a vegetarian dish, think twice. This delectable recipe from Spruce Eats is so well-flavored that you can hardly tell there's not any meat in the meal. Rather than preparing this dish with classic beef, the ingredient list calls for a beef substitute from the popular vegan brand Gardein. While some beef stroganoff recipes require beef broth as a soup base, this recipe uses cream of mushroom soup, as well as sour cream and white wine. Rest assured that there's no flavor lost in this recipe's veggie spin.
Seafood Blackened Shrimp Stroganoff
Seafood fans will fall in love with this under-the-sea spin on beef stroganoff. This blackened shrimp stroganoff from All Recipes is extremely savory, creamy and creative, with plenty of herbs and spices bringing the flavor of the seafood forward. It should be noted that the seasonings and veggies within this recipe are chosen to accompany fresh shrimp rather than beef, but, so long as you’re on board, the Cajun powder and red bell peppers are sure to add a rich flavor to this tasty meal.
Keto Beef Stroganoff
The keto diet may not allow for egg noodles, but that doesn't mean you have to give up on beef stroganoff. This inventive recipe from Delish swaps out noodles for a bed of cauliflower rice. Still, the focus of this recipe remains on the beef and the broth, with ingredients like garlic, cream cheese, Dijon mustard, paprika and Worcestershire sauce making up the creamy base of the dish. Although it's served over a bed of vegetable rice rather than noodles, this recipe is so yummy that you'll hardly be able to taste the difference.
