Buttermilk Beef Stroganoff

Served over noodles or rice, this is a delicious dish. Use buttermilk or sour cream, whichever you have on hand. When I use home canned beef, I can make this in the time it takes to cook the noodles or rice. Add a salad or green vegetable and you have a meal good enough for company.

Buttermilk Beef Stroganoff
Serves 4
12 Ounces Beef Sirloin -- or ribeye
2 Tablespoons Butter
½ Large Onion, Thinly Sliced
½ Pound Mushrooms – sliced or a 4 ounce can of mushrooms, drained
1 Tablespoon Sherry or Cognac (optional)
10 ½ Ounces Beef Consomm√© -- or bouillon, undiluted
1 Teaspoon Worcestershire Sauce
1/3 Cup Buttermilk
2 Tablespoons Flour
Salt and Pepper -- to taste

1) Trim beef; slice 1/4 inch thick. Cut into strips 1/2 inch wide. Brown quickly in butter in skillet. Push meat to one side; add sliced fresh mushrooms and chopped onion. Cook until tender, but not brown. If desired, add a tablespoon of sherry or cognac and let it simmer a minute or two. Add condensed beef bouillon; heat just to boiling.
2) Blend buttermilk with flour; stir into bouillon. Cook, stirring constantly, until thickened. Sauce will be thin. Add salt and pepper. May be served over hot rice or cooked noodles.

I use this recipe for home canned beef too. I substitute a pint of Canned Beef slices or cubes. I brown the mushrooms and onion in the butter; then add the drained beef. I use the broth for the liquid; adding some water or canned mushroom liquid and a little soup base or bouillon to make up the liquid needed, about 1 cup and 2 tablespoons. Go to step 2 and finish the recipe.

  1. Just tried this using venison instead of beef. It was fantastic, thanks for the recipe!!

  2. Sounds good. When we lived in northern Minnesota I used venison a lot.

  3. Your dish looks so amazing! Can i use homemade beef consomme for this recipe? Beef broth can be used as a substitute of beef consomme in this dish, can't it?

    1. Absolutely! We love homemade beef stock...two recipes we like are Slow Cooker Beef Stock and Home Canned Beef Stock from Kerr.
