What Kind of Steak Should I use?
You want to make sure to use a good cut and quality of steak for beef stroganoff. I tend to use boneless rib eye or beef sirloin. Beef tenderloin could also be used. If you want to use ground beef, you could as well. Just cook the ground beef in the pan first and drain the excess grease before continuing.
Tip for Slicing the Beef: Place the meat in the freezer for about 30 minutes before slicing. When it’s slightly frozen, it is more solid, and it will make it easier for the beef to slice thinly the way you want it to.
Making it Dairy-Free
This recipe does call for sour cream, but you can easily sub in a dairy-free alternative to keep this recipe dairy-free
