Easy Steak and Mushroom Stroganoff

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Servings: 6

This stroganoff is a snap to prepare with our mushroom gravy base, which lends savory flavor to the sauce. Sour cream adds a touch of richness.


  • 1 1/2 lb. beef sirloin steak
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1 lb. wide egg noodles
  • 2 Tbs. canola oil, plus more as needed
  • 1 lb. button or cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 Tbs. unsalted butter
  • 1 jar (12.5 oz.) mushroom gravy base
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream, at room temperature


Trim the steak of any surface fat. Cut the steak across the grain into slices 1/4 inch thick, then cut the slices into 2-inch lengths. Season with salt and pepper. 

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the egg noodles and stir occasionally until the water returns to a boil. Cook according to the package instructions until al dente. 

Meanwhile, brown the steak: In a large fry pan over medium-high heat, warm the 2 Tbs. oil until it shimmers. Add the steak in batches and cook, stirring frequently, until lightly browned and still quite rare, about 1 1/2 minutes per batch, adding more oil to the pan as needed. Transfer the beef to a plate. 

When all the steak is cooked, add the mushrooms and 2 Tbs. of the butter to the fry pan and cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until the mushrooms are lightly browned, about 6 minutes. Add the mushroom gravy base and milk and whisk to scrape up the browned bits from the pan bottom. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce begins to bubble gently, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the steak and sour cream. Return the pan to medium heat and simmer, stirring constantly, until the sour cream is heated through, about 1 minute; do not allow the sauce to boil. Season with salt and pepper. 

When the noodles are ready, drain and return them to the cooking pot. Add the remaining 1 Tbs. butter and toss to coat. Divide the noodles among 6 individual plates and top each serving with the steak and sauce. Serve immediately. Serves 6.
