Sliced steak on a cutting board
The Cut Of Steak Most Ideal For Tender Beef Stroganoff
For beef stroganoff, use a sirloin or ribeye cut of meat, which cook quickly, sear easily, and remain tender. Even better, opt for a stir-fry cut to avoid tough and chewy slices.
Stir-fried meat is traditionally thin, smaller pieces, designed to cook evenly with other ingredients, making it perfect for stroganoff. It also makes the meal more substantial.
To achieve the delicious sear that slices of meat can provide, cook it on a properly heated pan. You'll know it's hot enough when the oil appears to be shimmering.
