Simple beef stroganoff is made with seared strips of tender juicy beef simmering in a thick and creamy homemade mushroom sauce infused with the flavors of caramelized onions and Montreal steak spice.
Prep Time: 10 Min
Cook Time: 20 Min
Slice your steak into thin strips and season with the Montreal steak spice.
Grab a large skillet (I love using cast iron when cooking steak) and preheat 1 tablespoon of coconut oil over medium-high heat.
Once it is hot, add the steak in a single layer, being careful not to overcrowd the pan. Sear for 50-60 seconds, flipping halfway. Be careful not to overcook the steak. Remove to a plate and repeat with remaining steak, adding another 1 tablespoon of oil.
Using the same pan, melt the butter and sauté the onion over medium heat until it is nice and caramelized. Stir a few times.
Add the mushrooms and season with the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of Montreal spice and sauté until the mushrooms are brown and soft.
To the mixture, you’re going to add flour and stir for a minute. This is what’s called making a roux. It’ll become like a paste and start to give off a nutty aroma.
After about a minute of stirring the flour, add a few splashes of beef broth until incorporated, and then add the remaining broth. At this point, you can deglaze the bottom of the pot too.
Add the sour cream and bring everything to a gentle boil. Simmer until the sauce thickens. Stir occasionally.
Return the beef to the skillet, submerge the strips in the sauce, and season with salt to taste. Garnish with finely chopped parsley and serve with boiled golden potatoes!
