Beef Stroganoff, a popular dish in mid-century America, combines a basic sour cream and mustard sauce with beef and mushrooms. The 19th century French chef of Russian Count Pavel Stroganov created the sauce by combining sour cream with a basic French mustard sauce. Sour cream is a popular Russian condiment and the key ingredient in many Russian dishes.
The first recorded recipe of beef Stroganoff used beef cubes. Common homemade versions often use ground beef or meatballs. Beef strips are used in many restaurants.
Our simple take is perfect for busy cooks. We use frozen meatballs as the base of the dish and add canned mushrooms. If you are a mushroom lover, you can substitute sautéed sliced fresh mushrooms instead for better texture and richer flavor.
Vegetarians can also enjoy this delicious dish by using vegetable broth and our vegetarian meatball recipe made with Beyond Beef products.
