This time we decided to take one of our favorite dishes and simply remove the meat. This mushroom stroganoff came out fantastic!
Why this Recipe Works
- Rich, Earthy Flavors: Mushrooms, especially varieties like baby bella, provide a deep, earthy flavor which is the cornerstone of this dish. Their meaty texture makes the stroganoff hearty and satisfying.
- Creamy and Comforting: The combination of sour cream, flour, and broth creates a thick, creamy sauce that’s comforting and rich. It perfectly coats the noodles, offering a satisfying mouthfeel.
- Simple Ingredients, Big Flavor: The recipe uses straightforward, readily available ingredients like onions, garlic, and mustard, each contributing layers of flavor without overwhelming the dish.
- Versatile Serving Options: Though traditionally served with egg noodles, the flexibility to pair it with rice or mashed potatoes makes it adaptable to different tastes and dietary preferences.
- Quick and Easy to Prepare: The recipe is simple and quick, making it an excellent choice for a weeknight dinner. The cooking process is straightforward, making it accessible even to less experienced cooks.
- Mushrooms – We used baby bella, but use whatever is your favorite, or what you have on hand.
- Onion – Chopped.
- Garlic – Always fresh.
- Flour – For thickening.
- Stock – Vegetable or beef.
- Worcestershire Sauce – Adds a depth of flavor. Omit for purely vegetarian.
- Dijon Mustard – Another layer of flavor.
- Sour Cream – We use regular, but you can use light if watching calories.
- Noodles – We used egg noodles. See below for more ideas.
How to Make Mushroom Stroganoff
Start out by cooking the noodles according to the directions on the package.
Melt butter in a skillet, then sauté the mushrooms and onions until they start to get soft. Add in the garlic and cook for a couple of minutes.
Add in the flour and mix well.
Stir in the stock, worcestershire sauce and mustard. Mix well and simmer for about five minutes, until the sauce starts to thicken up, then fold in the sour cream.
Stir in the noodles, or spoon the mushroom gravy over them for each individual serving. We like to garnish it with some chopped parsley or fresh thyme.
Some Other Serving Ideas
We usually have our stroganoff with egg noodles. That being said, any of your other favorite pasta shapes would go great.
This mushroom stroganoff also goes great over steamed white rice or mashed potatoes.
If you’re watching carbs, try it over spaghetti squash or cauliflower rice.
How to Make Mushroom Stroganoff Completely Vegetarian
We used beef stock, but you can certainly use vegetable stock.
Typical worcestershire sauce has anchovies, but there are vegan worcestershire sauces available in store. In its absence, you can substitute ½ tablespoon of soy sauce and ½ tablespoon of tomato paste.
You can refrigerate leftover mushroom stroganoff in an airtight container for 3-4 days. Reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave. You might want to add a splash of extra water when reheating.
We hope you love this mushroom stroganoff as much as we do. It’s a great meatless dinner option that’s still hearty and comforting. When you try it, please leave a star rating and comment, I love to hear from you.
