  • 1 pound of beef (sirloin or tenderloin works well)
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Start by thinly slicing the beef into strips and seasoning with salt and pepper.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat and brown the beef strips. Once browned, transfer the beef to a plate and set aside.
  3. In the same skillet, add the chopped onion and sauté until translucent. Add the minced garlic and cook for an additional minute.
  4. Sprinkle the flour over the onion and garlic, stirring to combine. This will create a roux and thicken the sauce.

  7. Return the beef strips to the skillet, coating them in the creamy sauce.
  8. Simmer the stroganoff for a few more minutes to allow the flavors to meld together.
  9. Adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Serve the no mushroom beef stroganoff over cooked egg noodles or rice, garnished with chopped fresh parsley.
