Beef Stroganoff without Mushrooms

Beef Stroganoff without Mushrooms at The Happy Housewife

As I mentioned in a previous picky eater post, I am not a fan of mushrooms. I can eat them, but when given the choice, I prefer to skip the fungus and move on. My husband loves Beef Stroganoff, so I finally found a recipe that tastes pretty good without the mushrooms.

Beef Stroganoff without Mushrooms
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 tablespoon garlic
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 2 pounds sirloin tip, cut into thin slices (I use top round cut into thin strips)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 (16 ounce) container sour cream (do not use fat free)
  1. Slice steak into thin strips, and chop onion.
  2. Melt butter in skillet (or wok).
  3. Add beef and cook until brown.
  4. About 3 minutes after starting the beef add onion, salt, pepper, and garlic. (I added too much butter, you should not have this much liquid in your pan.)
  5. When the beef is browned turn down the heat and add sour cream.
  6. Do not let the sour cream boil, just heat through and serve over noodles.
If you want mushrooms in your recipe, then add sliced mushrooms when you add the onion.

    That recipe is so easy. I am going to add it to my weekly menu as well. Thanks for all the tips. I enjoy them all.

    I like to also add about a Tbl of Worchestershire sauce.

  3. That looks awesome… and easy. And those are two things I really like. Plus dh will love that there aren’t any mushrooms. :) Thanks for sharing this!

  4. To make it less expensive you could use ground beef instead of the steak. We make it the same way but sometimes add Lipton Onion Soup Mix to give it a little extra flavor.

  5. Hello could I quote some of the material from this entry if I provide a link back to your site?

    Hey would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re utilizing? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you recommend a good internet hosting provider at a honest price? Many thanks, I appreciate it!

  7. I want to express my appreciation to the writer just for rescuing me from this type of condition. Right after researching throughout the online world and seeing views that were not helpful, I was thinking my life was gone. Existing without the presence of answers to the problems you have sorted out all through your entire post is a serious case, as well as those which could have adversely damaged my career if I had not discovered your site. Your good understanding and kindness in dealing with all areas was valuable. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I had not come across such a thing like this. I can at this moment look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for the high quality and sensible help. I won’t think twice to propose your web blog to anyone who desires support on this problem.

    This sounds easy and cheap. My husband doesn’t like mushrooms so this is such a relief. And he can have left overs too. I like how you took pictures too. Thank you!

    What a great dinner! My whole family ate even my seven year old. I paired it with steamed veggies for a very inexpensive meal. Thank you. :)

    So glad that you posted this! My bride of four months also does not like mushrooms, as well as my stepdaughter…So this is definitely the way to go! (I will add the Worchestshire sauce as well)!
