When you’re pressed for time, you need a meal that is comforting, delicious, and quick. My Quick and Easy Beef Stroganoff recipe is beefy, creamy, and full of amazing flavor!
My husband and I have traded places in our weekday routine. He now works for the school system and he gets off of work a little earlier than I do so he is home before I am. So, he cooks dinner throughout the week. He is now understanding the pressure and difficulty that I have felt several times when you’re tired of your workday and you have to come home and get a meal on the table. It’s hard! Your either too physically tired to get in front of the stove, or your too mentally tired to think of something to cook. That is why I swear by meal kits.
How to make Beef Stroganoff Gravy?
The gravy of Beef Stroganoff is the most critical part of the entire dish. It is the element that brings everything together. It is also surprisingly pretty easy. I added cornstarch to some beef broth, a touch of Worcestershire sauce, and a little smoked paprika. The natural flavor of the beef broth, the cooked beef tips adds all the flavor that the dish really needs to be delicious. Then to give the gravy some extra creaminess you can use sour cream or plain greek yogurt (that is what I did). The tartness of the yogurt does elevate the flavor and the Beef stroganoff gravy from delicious to finger-licking good.
The bottom line is as working parents need all of the help and support we can get just to make it through the week. So if you’re looking for a simple meal that doesn’t taste like you just got home and wanted to put something together so your family wouldn’t starve (me at least once a week) this Quick and Easy Beef Stroganoff Recipe is perfect!Print
