  • How to Thicken Beef Stroganoff: To get the desired consistency for the stroganoff gravy, you can either whisk in a cornstarch slurry or add extra cream to it while whisking constantly on the heat.
  • Stir in a cornstarch slurry: Mix all-purpose flour or cornstarch with liquid (beef broth or water), following the ratio of 1 part starch to 2 parts liquid. Simply add a tablespoon of it at a time while the gravy is simmering until it reaches your desired thickness. Leaving the skillet uncovered while simmering also helps evaporate the liquid to make it less watery.
  • Add extra cream: It can be sour cream, Greek yogurt, or lactose-free sour cream. But be careful, as this extra amount will also add up on the total calories and fat for your dish.
  • Customize It to Your Taste:
    • Use ground beef instead of steak.
    • White mushrooms are our favorite, but just about any type of mushrooms will work for this recipe.
    • Some of the best stir-frying veggies to use are asparagus, bell peppers, and broccoli, or any combination of such.
    • To give the stroganoff a bit of a kick, sprinkle some red pepper flakes when finished.
    • Make it gluten-free: To make beef stroganoff gluten-free, swap gluten-free flour for all-purpose flour.
  • How to Store and Reheat Leftover: If you happen to have leftover beef stroganoff, it’s good to know that it will keep well for 3-4 days in the fridge, making this dish meal-prep friendly for busy people. Beef stroganoff will also freeze well. It will last for up to 3 months in the freezer and the mushroom gravy still won’t separate or congeal. From frozen, thaw the portions in the refrigerator overnight, then bake or microwave them covered the following day.
