Best Homemade Beef Stroganoff Recipe-Ingredients

For four servings we will need two good slices of dry-aged ribeye steak of the best quality because this is the most important secret for the success of the recipe. Choose beef meat for steak, whether it’s ribeye, sirloin or rump steak because this is the only way to reduce the cooking time, otherwise you will need long cooking of the meat.

I also used a medium-sized onion, a clove of garlic, 300 grams of mushrooms, 280 ml of single cream and 500 ml beef stock.

How to Make the Best Homemade Beef Stroganoff Recipe?

We are preparing a cooking pot, which can be a soup pot or a larger pan, I used my favourite Dutch oven pot in which I heated four tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. When the oil is very hot, it starts to smoke, we put the strips of meat in the pot to fry. It is preferable not to fry all the meat at once, but in two portions, so as not to cool the oil and the meat to get a crust very quickly.

It is very IMPORTANT not to fry the meat strips for more than a minute, turning them halfway through or when they have acquired a golden crust. After a minute we take them out in a bowl and leave them there for a while.
