What should you should serve with Beef Stroganoff?
Any of the following go really well with this meal. It’s one of those dishes that goes with pretty much anything. It’s so hearty it can of course be eaten on its own!

Do you need any special ingredients to make this Beef Stroganoff?
Beef Stroganoff is traditionally made with mustard, double cream, and stock, so we’ve made some clever switches to make this a super slimming-friendly version
Some people like to put Paprika or even tomatoes in their Stroganoff, but we don’t think it needs either of those ingredients. If you fancy an experiment, then go for it!
We’d recommend using a good quality piece of meat which is suitable for quick cooking, rather than a cheaper cut.
Cheap cuts tend to be better for low and slow cooking and can end up really tough if only cooked for a short time.
You can get all of the ingredients for this recipe in your local supermarket.
Can you cook Beef Stroganoff another way?
This recipe really needs to be cooked using the method below.
How do you know when Beef Stroganoff is cooked?
You’ll know this recipe is cooked once the beef is cooked to your liking (we like it a little on the pink side) and when the sauce is thick, rich and reduced.
This will take around 30 minutes on the hob.
Standard advice here in the UK is to cook food until it has reached 70°C and stayed at that temperature for 2 minutes. This is to keep your family safe.
How long can you keep Beef Stroganoff in the fridge?
Once you’ve served it, ideally you should eat it within 4 hours.
If you allow any left overs to cool, make sure to refrigerate in a container with a lid and chill. You can keep leftovers of Beef Stroganoff in the fridge for approximately 3 days or so.
Can I freeze Beef Stroganoff?
Yes you can! This recipe can be frozen, but please remember to do the following;
- Freeze it as soon as it is cold enough.
- Use a container or bag that is suitable for freezing.
Don’t forget to add a label with what it is, and on what date you put it in the freezer!
How do I reheat Beef Stroganoff?
From chilled: Place in a microwave proof container with loosely fitting lid and heat for 4-7 minutes until piping hot.
From frozen: Allow to defrost, and heat covered in the microwave for 3-5 minutes then stir. Cook for a further 5-7 minutes until piping hot.
