For the seared steak

  • 1 1/2 pounds flank steak cut into thin 2-inch long strips against the grain
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 2 teaspoons allspice
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

For the stroganoff

  • 1 pound wide egg noodles
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 1 1/2 pounds cremini mushrooms thick sliced
  • 6 tablespoons butter divided
  • 2 medium yellow onions sliced
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 3 cups low-sodium beef stock divided
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon Mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups pasta water will not need all of it
  • 2 tablespoons flat leaf parsley minced, optional
  • salt and pepper to taste


For the seared steak

  • Slice the flank steak into thin about 2 inches in length, then slice into thin bite sized pieces against the grain. Place the meat into a bowl and mix well with the allspice, nutmeg, salt, and pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or up to overnight, before searing the beef.
  • Heat a large pan to medium-high heat and add the vegetable oil. Sear the steak for 2-3 minutes or until browned. Remove the steak pieces to a dish and tent with foil to keep warm. Pour 1/2 cup of beef stock into the pan and scrape the bottom of the pan to remove all of the brown bits. Combine the pan juices with the remaining 2 1/2 cups of beef stock and set aside.

For the beef stroganoff

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to boil.
  • Heat a large pan to medium and add 3 tablespoons of olive oil and the mushrooms. Cook the mushrooms until they release their water and brown, then season with salt and pepper to taste and remove them to a bowl.
  • Add the remaining olive oil, 3 tablespoons of butter, and the onions to the pan and saute until soft (about 10 minutes). Add the garlic and cook for another 2 minutes or until very fragrant.
  • At this time begin cooking the egg noodles to the package instructions and when finished toss with 3 tablespoons of butter. Make sure to reserve at least 2 cups of pasta water.
  • Add the flour to the pan and cook for 1 minute or until all of the white specks are gone.
  • Add the white wine and beef stock to the pan and turn the heat to high. With a flat wooden spoon, scrape the bottom of the pan to dislodge all of the brown bits.
  • Bring to a boil while whisking until smooth for 3 minutes. Lower the heat to a simmer and add the mushrooms, and sliced steak to the pan along with the mustard and Worcestershire sauce. Continue to cook at a low simmer while waiting for the noodles.
  • Add the heavy cream and sour cream to the pan and continue to simmer for 2 minutes. Taste test the sauce and adjust salt and pepper if required. If the sauce is too thick add a few ounces of the reserved pasta water. When satisfied remove the pan from the heat.
  • Divide the noodles into bowls and ladle the stroganoff over each one. Garnish with parsley. Enjoy!



  • Flank, skirt, sirloin, filet, and ribeye can all be used.  Make sure to slice all of these steaks against the grain to ensure a more tender bite.
  • Leftovers can be saved for up to 3 days in the fridge, and can be reheated on the stovetop or microwave.
