Beef Stroganoff Recipe

If you're looking for a hearty, savory and creamy dish to welcome in the Autumn season then look no further because I've got you covered with this easy beef stroganoff.

Beef stroganoff is quick and easy to prepare for a weeknight dinner.  All you need is a good quality cut of beef, lots of mushrooms and a few simple ingredients to whip up an impressive meal.

I've always had beef stroganoff on top of wide, buttered, egg noodles but since I could not find them in Dubai, I've used thin, egg noodles and I think I prefer them.

This satisfying one dish meal served with sour dill pickles will surely wow your family and friends, so please give it a try and let me know if you love it as much as I do!

You can try this with ground beef meatballs instead of beef strips which is a more cost effective option.

If you don't want to use beef, you can make this with strips of boneless chicken breast.

Use any variety of mushroom you prefer.
