Simple Stroganoff Recipe

One of the most easy and simple recipes


This is got to be one of the easiest recipes to make, simple Stroganoff. I will be honest here it took me while to actually try to make this recipe from scratch. I just had in my mind that it was too complicate. I could not be more wrong.

Stroganoff is so easy and only takes 7 ingredients to make from way to go.

This recipe can be for any meat that you like, I change it up from beef, lamb to chicken just depends on what we want on the day.

To make it, you can do this in the slow cooker or on the stove. On the stove it will only take around 20 – 30 minutes and you’ll be eaten. In the slow cooker 8 hours on low or 4 hours on high.

I do not adjust the recipe for the slow cooker, although there is a lot of liquid and if you remember from our post on cooking in a slow cooker, we do state to reduce the liquid. But I have found that this is not necessary for this recipe and all you do is at the end of the cooking period is add in about a tablespoon of corn flour or plain flour and the sauce will thicken up nicely. You do want to have a bit of sauce with this recipe so don’t worry if there is too much liquid.

Now back to the recipe itself and how you pull it all to together to make a great tasting meal the whole family will love.

Cooking Steps

Brown the meat, add in mushrooms if you have them. If I don’t have mushrooms it is no big deal leave them out.

Then add in all the spices, ginger, garlic, cardamom, sweet paprika and stock. You will need around 1 to 1 ½ cups of stock and this will depend on the amount of meat you cook.


Cooking Stroganoff on the stove top


Allow everything to simmer until the liquid reduces slightly not too much you want a rich sauce. Then turn the heat off and add in about 2 tablespoons of Greek yoghurt. And that is it serve with rice or mash potato.


Finished Simple Stroganoff Recipe


I told you this is a simple recipe to make. So, don’t buy the sauce in a jar when making your own stroganoff is so simple easy and quick to make, plus it tastes so much better than the one you buy.

The other great thing about this recipe is that it is everything you should have in your pantry already, no need to go to the shops for any specific ingredient shopping.
