Chef John's Classic Beef Stroganoff

Chef John's Classic Beef Stroganoff

This classic beef stroganoff recipe is a fairly lean version, as most recipes call for more cream. This is something you can easily adjust to your tastes. I like a little thicker version, with just enough sauce to coat the meat. Serve over buttered noodles.

Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 1 hr 30 mins

  4. Add garlic and stir for 30 seconds. Stir in flour; cook for 1 to 2 minutes until incorporated. Stir in wine and 1 cup of broth, scraping the bottom of the pan to release any browned bits. Bring to a simmer and cook until the sauce thickens, about 3 to 4 minutes.
