Red River Beef Stroganoff Recipe

Red River Beef Stroganoff Recipe

Thirty years ago I spent several weeks at a beautiful mountain lodge in Red River, New Mexico. When we arrived, the aroma of this dish greeted us. It was delicious, so I asked for the recipe and it's been a favorite ever since. Nowadays, my married daughter likes to prepare it for her family.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 pounds beef top sirloin steak, cut into thin strips
  • 1/2 cup butter, divided
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 1 can (10-1/2 ounces) condensed beef broth, undiluted
  • 1 jar (4-1/2 ounces) sliced mushrooms, drained
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup (8 ounces) sour cream
  • Cooked rice or noodles


  • 1. Place flour in a shallow bowl. Dip beef in flour to coat. In a large skillet, brown beef in 1/4 cup butter in batches. Remove from pan and set aside.
  • 2. In the same skillet, saute onions in remaining butter until crisp-tender. Return beef to pan. Add the broth, mushrooms, Worcestershire sauce, basil, salt and pepper. Cook until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes.

"There was something straganoff-y missing, but overall very tasty. I recommend browning fresh mushrooms with the onions. Also, I added more worcestershire sauce and about 3 tbsp of soy sauce. It needed something more."

"Great recipe! Sadly my daughter doesn't like mushrooms so left them out and just added a little more spice to "cover" the sour cream taste... well worth making!!"

"This is similar to the Stroganoff that I make, except I use fresh mushrooms and I add a little tomato paste to it. It is delicious."

"I used this recipe to make stroganoff for the first time. I thought it could use maybe a clove of garlic, but other than that, it was great."
