The Art of Beef Stroganoff

If you’ve ever struggled with overcooked beef, you’re going to love this Beef Stroganoff recipe. We’ll share two simple rules for achieving juicy, tender beef:

  1. Choose the Right Cut: For quick-cooking recipes like Beef Stroganoff, it’s important to select a good quality steak that’s nicely marbled with fat. Chuck beef won’t cut it. We want to experience the true essence of this retro classic dish, with tender, juicy beef.
  2. The 30 Second Sear: Thin strips of beef cook quickly, but we can’t skip the sear. It adds flavor to both the beef and the gravy. A super quick sear in a smoking hot skillet is essential. Just 30 seconds on each side will do the trick. Don’t worry, the beef will finish cooking in the gravy.
