Beef Stroganoff All Grown-Up

The Cooking School at Jungle Jim’s knows all too well the kind of memories some of us have about beef stroganoff, but fortunately, they’ve devised a recipe that gives this classic dish a modern taste, thanks to a mix of mushrooms.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms, cremini, shiitake, button or a mix
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • ¼ cup dry sherry
  • 1-2 tablespoons “More Than Gourmet” demi-glace, optional
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • ¾ teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1½ pounds cooked, rare to medium-rare, beef tenderloin or other steak, thinly sliced
  • 2-3 tablespoons sour cream

Cooked egg noodles, for serving


Heat olive oil in a skillet and cook mushrooms until they are browned, about 6-8 minutes. Remove mushrooms from skillet and add onions. Sauté onions, adding a drizzle of olive oil if needed, until they begin to soften and brown, about 5-8 minutes. Return mushrooms to skillet and sprinkle with flour, stirring until well blended. Slowly add broth, stirring well, then tomato paste, stirring constantly until thickened, about 2-3 minutes. Add sherry, demi-glace, salt, pepper and tarragon and stir well. Return beef to skillet and simmer to heat through. Stir in sour cream, adjust seasoning and serve over noodles.
