  13. Bonnie Cull

    I just made strogonoff tonight and I cook it pretty much the same way. I will definitely be trying it with the homemade creme fresche next time

  14. Chani P

    Made this today and it was PERFECTION. I wanted to eat the entire thing myself ugh but had to share with family which I did. Lol thank you for sharing the recipe. Omg I’m gna go eat some more beef stroganoff.

  15. dede dere

    why overcooked the meat? Its a stroganoff not a ragout.

  16. Corey White

    U got me with puttin🤦‍♂️

  17. coolingwinds

    I made both the créme fraiche and the beef stroganoff…I have no words. I heard a mike drop in my kitchen!!!😃❤️❤️❤️

  18. Gary Dell

    1. Jason Ring

      Gary Dell maybe in yours, but not his.

    Racism will not be tolerated.
    You will be reported! Right after I eat.

  20. loardjohnWhorfin

    I cooked this dish and it was fantastic.

  21. Eric Petty

    I would recommend making a seasoned flour to throw the meat in before searing it in the pan. Brown’s the flour, cooks the beef nicely, and I personally think it helps lock in and keep the flavors on the beef. Everything else was spot in for me. I’m no master chef but have cooked professionally for a long time. Love your videos. Subbed

  22. tim jones

    Your a white guy, of course your racist, tune in CNN or PMSNBC, they’ll tell you

    1. Jason Ring

      tim jones you don’t even make any sense.

    I love to eat a Russian Girls Sweet, Hot Super Tight Pussy until she has a big orgasm in my mouth

  24. Donatus Raus

    I jhave followed the above recepie by Chef John religiously, always with great success. Toninght, having misjudged the contents of my larder I realized that I had run out of brown onions and mushrooms. As the beef had already defrosted I decided to slightly vary this recipe. After browning the beef as usual and setting it appart I finely chopped two large red onions and sauteed them in the fat and juices of the beef together with two 285g tins of button msuhrooms,  added seasoning (salt and black pepper) and glazed the pan with 50 ml red wine and rich beef stock, I then added  the beef and let everything simmer for 90 minutes. Just before thickening the sauce with a very generous helping of crème fraîche I also added two dashes (and only 2 spritzer please!!!) of Worcestershire Sauce – a revelation. I highly recommend this variation on a theme if your heart is set on changing a wonderful dish.

  25. spiffyloo

    This is a fabulous recipe and video. Easy to follow and delicious. I made it with white wine last time but I’m going to try some red wine tonight. I also prefer shiitake, either way it’s great

  26. Nick Smolinski

    This looked good. I have used several of your recipes and they have all come out good. Is there a certain kind of buttered noodles you use or do you make yours from scratch. Also where exactly does one find creme fraise , have checked several grocery store dairy sections and to no avail

  27. Jisel Campos

    Lol mmmm The Best No Clue it was Russian thought American what an Insult to Putin lol

  28. Lars Graf


  29. Peter Frenzel

    I made this beef Stroganoff recipe but was to hungry to wait another day for crème fraiche to get ready so I took the beef stroganoff off of the heat for 5 min and then added sour crème,  plus 1 table spoon of pickle juice. I also didn’t have white wine so I just used the beef broth. It was so, so, so so good. A definite 6 stars out of possible 5 stars.

  30. Maria Callous

    everyone loves John…too bad he sold to allrecipes.

  31. Mark Kodama

    Why not use a better cut of meat and then rry it like a streak. Reserve it. You can be eating in 30 minutes.

  32. M Howard

    It’s like Garfield the Cat is teaching you how to cook!

  33. lennyboy

    That is exactly how my mother made it except she used burgundy instead of white wine, and she made her own egg noodles…god I miss her cooking.

  47. Walker Lamock started this beef conversation I’ll finish it…an old bull and a young bull were standing on a hilltop looking down on a herd of cattle,the young bull says “let’s run down there and fuck one of those cows ” the old bull replies ” let’s walk down there and fuck them all”.

  48. Walker Lamock

  81. gkgyver

    Doesn’t Stroganoff have pickled gurken as well?

    1. Jason Ring

      gkgyver I suppose if you want it to.

    Hey I use a different recipe using tenderloin and its way fast and using cognac, digion, but i always used store bought cream fraiche, but since its so hard to find, and soooooo expensive made my own yesterday so we shall see if its better, certainly is cheaper.

  85. Sarah Vyeda

    Laura Vitale makes this recipe in like 25 mins. Chef John…..she trippin??

  86. Christine Camarillo

    Putin… Ha ha, I get it.

  87. Joanna R

    Ground beef is delish in this recipe as well, extra lean only.

  88. Frank A. Hernandez

    This Stroganoff recipe is the absolute best and I humbly thank you, John! You’ve turned me into an awesome cook. I’m a stay-at-home dad and at first, my wife & kids tried to fire me because of my bad cooking but you’ve turned me into an great cook. I kid you not: My wife and 1 of my daughters actually licked their plates! I’ve followed so many of your recipes and every single time, they were a success! Every time!!! Please keep those recipes coming. BTW, have you ever made Slumgullian?

  89. Arthur

    Why do Americans always fuck up the pronunciation of *everything*. Stroganoff is not Stroe-ganoff. It’s a hard o, like in clock. The double-f is also held. When would a Russian ever say “Stroooow-ganoff”?

  90. Paul McArthur

    Oh my… I made the creme Fraische and used it in this recipe. It was sooooo good. Thanks!

  91. R. McBride

    Looks wonderful. Just curious though… not red wine? I always use a red…

    hey thanks dude i tried this and it was fantastic!! so tasty!!!! but it did take me like 3 hrs to make it was my first time.

  103. Elizabeth Proverbs 28:9

    Our family recipe for beef stroganoff uses rice instead of noodles. I know, totally not “traditional”, but SO much better. My dad was a Cajun so rice was more popular for everything. I this looks good, but it’s still not “comfort” food if it’s not our family recipe ☺️

  106. Sharon Korkes

    I don’t care that this comment comes over six years later (you are timeless.). I have been searching for a good beef stroganoff recipe and, thanks to this one, I’ll be Putin on the ritz. Oh yeah.

  107. Hugh Janus

    You are the Bob Geldoff of your Beef Stroganoff.

  108. Ron Lund

    I made this today and it was absolutely wonderful. I did need another 20 minutes of simmer time for the meat to get tender. I was a little worried that the meat would be dry, but it was tender and had a very nice texture.
    I thought your first Putin joke was good and the second one was, well … Chef John. I watch most of your videos whether I’m interested in the dish or not just to hear your monologue. It’s always a bright spot in my day. Thanks for being, well … Chef John.

    Hi Gianny! Do you mean Strong Enough not Stroganoff?
    Or, Strong & Off? Funy for us here in EU, it sounds like…that.
    B**dy Russian, it’s OK, we can take it…

  113. Bobby Stelpstra

    Could I uses Mirin in place of the white wine, or you think it would make it too sweet?

  140. Mack Frank

    I have been watching several videos on how to make stroganoff, but this one looked the best and the Putin joke sealed the deal for me. This will be tonight’s dinner. Off to the store for beef, noodles and ingredient’s to make the creme fresh

  141. Beth Bilous

    looks yum, but i use filet tips, a tad a dijon, dill, and only cook meat a few minutes, OMG is right

  142. musicelfka

    In Poland we make the sause very thin and eat the strogonoff like a soup.

  143. e21big

    I made this recipe last week. It’s utterly delicious, Chef John. Many thanks.

  152. Ethan Tremblay

    Made this meal last night. I made some minor changes to the recipe. Otherwise, it was a fine meal. Cheers

    Cream cheese instead of creme fresh is also delicious.

  159. Fand Htwoohs

    But, where are the thyme and dry mustard? I just don’t understand.

  160. Beth Bilous

    I love this, I make mine with beef tenderloin, and cognac and don;t cook it that long. Stellar dish.

  161. southbendkid

    If you mix flour with sour cream (one table spoon per cup) it won’t curdle. Account for the thickening action tho.

    Please tell me I’m not the only one, who when he said Creme fraiche, yelled at the screen, “Yeah stir that bitch”, Randy Marsh Style.

  164. Jim Perris

    +Food Wishes Hey Chef John, thanks for this recipe. Unfortunately, I let my mushrooms sit around for too long and they got slimy and spotty, so I left those out. And I didn’t make creme fraiche, just used sour cream (tempered by stirring in some of the sauce first so it didn’t separate). But still, it came out great! Admittedly my only prior experience with beef stroganoff was the Hamburger Helper style my dad used to serve. For me it was a great way to make use of the beef chuck I bought on sale last weekend.

  165. Officer Nivelle

    the hell is creme fresh

  166. Lucian Nicholson

    I appreciate many of the food channels I subscribe to but this one just gets on my nerves. He needs to get someone else to do the voice.

  167. mbright69

    Is the garlic crushed? Minced?

  168. coleyjoon

    I made this last night with some left over delicious grilled flank steak. Sadly, I had to use sour cream…. I know, I know, the horror!!! It turned out amazing anyway, and I it was very easy. This will be a staple in our house going forward, and next time I will give myself time to make the creme fraiche. Thanks, Chef John 🙂

  169. Dan

    No cayenne pepper?

  170. kiwifruitkl

    So, this recipe is just a mixture of mushrooms (portabella, I think), beef chuck, onions, and cooking alcohol or water. It sounds pretty easy.

  171. Ambrose Leahy

    I’ve made this, creme fraiche and all! Absolute delish dish. I ended up Putin two dollops of creme fraiche, which finnished it off nicely! Thanks for the instruction Chef John!

  172. Cacostab

    I just hit the like button right from the beginning. I mean it’s chef Jon, what can go wrong?

  173. Mix Master

    Omfg why do i do this to myself

  174. norina195

    You’re the Romanov of your Stroganoff

  175. Jerry Arbogast

    Stroganoff without fresh nutmeg is a sin.

  176. Bill Mayhew

    I love stroganoff. I know this sounds lame, but I actually like making it with lean ground beef just as much as the beef strips. It’s quicker, still good, and for some reason I like the texture better over egg noodles. i know, for shame, but I like it.

  177. pfmasson

    You could also dust your meat with paprika to give a smoky taste to your dish.


    TRUMP is that you ? the way you speak

    What do you call a pasture full of mastubating cows? Beef strok’in off.

  187. meri

    try making only noodles and eating only ONE noodles dish instead and maybe on occasion ONE slice of beef PER DAY when u make this meal. only one meal, OKAY? there are many others who might need the resources

  188. JohnTre all Day Green

    If you really wanna go gangsta wit it. Make some garlic mashed potatoes instead of noodles! This is a great and easy recipe folks!!

  189. schlumbl84

    I have a favourite recipe very similar to this one. But instead of white wine (wich is good, too) you use Guinness beer. Tastes amazing and makes every man smile!

  190. xman870096

    Chef John, I see this is one of your older videos that I hadn’t seen before; still a great one. I haven’t made ‘Beef Stroganoff’ in quite a long time and think this is a great reminder of how easy it is to make…. Thanks for the reminder…And lastly isn’t it funny that the ‘Putin’ jokes are even more ‘timely’ even now???

  191. Jay Allidap

    chef what can i use if i dont have white wine

  205. Rabboleth

    I’ll definitely keep this recipe in mind the next time I make beef stroganoff, but it will be served on a bed of fluffy Russian kasha. ^_^

  206. FreeRonnieRadke

    Isn’t Beef Stroganoff made with onions and pickles? :O

      I know this might come as a surprise to the simple minded, but recipes are meant to be changed to your desired taste. Stroganoff is more a method than a recipe. So cut him some slack!

  209. Eric Fremstad

    Chef John, where do you find those awesome egg noodles?

  210. Korban Dallas

    Nice to hear your old voice, your real voice, not Mickey mouse’s, but your own, much better like this, fire the guy who made u change.

  211. enoliaa


  212. Denise Keinan

    This is one of the best stroganoff recipes! thank you for explaining it so clear.

  213. guardiangarasu

    omg disappointed you didnt say “You are the Hasselhoff, of your stroganoff”

  214. MonSwon

    Just watched ten beef strong recipes this is best, just right. We have with white rice.

  215. RedRisotto

    Paprika, couple of table spoons of prepared mustard and honey adds that extra ompf for the sauce. Would add the fried mushrooms in the last 10-15 minutes for a better texture.

  216. Forsaken Ex0usT

    I am In Love With Your Voice!!!!!! Yesss

  217. L. Scott Music

    Good quality low-fat yogurt works good too.  Has a bit more tang.  It was something my mom insisted on when we were kids and rather than not get beef stroganoff at all we got used to it.  These days I do use low-fat sour cream but don’t mind yogurt either.  Never tried crème fresh (spelled wrong of course.).

  218. luvbotany

    Russian isnt a race so it’s not racist.

    1. Leslie Elaine

      luvbotany Slavs are another race, I believe

    2. luvbotany

      Jackie Janine it’s a country. Like the English and French and Italians are not different races but live in different countries. frankly I think the concept of race is flawed to begin with.

    3. Jackie Janine

      luvbotany What is it then?Sorry if I seem like an idiot😊

  219. Duke Of Hesse

    This is no doubt a great tasting recipe. But why not use a good (tender) cut of beef? That, I believe is what most recipes call for.Chuck seems to come out kind of mealy after it’s cooked long enough to get tender.

  223. ries0000

    I miss the paprika ,carrot and the little sour onions

  224. Tai Qidong

    Ok, nice recipe, but with bef stroganoff I kinda thought there would be some tomato paste, regular fast chared fine slices of steak and … wodka!!! And all that with baked slliced potatoes and salted cucumbers. Must be another general Stroganoff I guess. Love your recipies by the way, crème fraiche is thickening right now … Thanks for the wonderfull vids and dito recipes.

  225. Federico Lebrón

    This came out great, thank you! 🙂

  226. sayak deb

    MY MOUTH IS WATERING!!!!!!!!!MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  227. jason brocky

    Thanks for this simple yet delicious dish Chef

  228. heroinhero69

    no paprika?!!!

  229. Mikko Ttt

    I always add a tea spoon of tomato paste to Stroganoff, because that’s what the original russian recipe says.

  230. BirdOfParadise777

    Man! You speak so clearly with your mouth full! lol

    1. Ny Jeep Adventurer

    2. Edward Wilson

      I dont think he was talking at that same time he was eating. It was recorded after the fact

  231. Madelaine Morbioni

    I made your recipe and it turned out fantastic! I’ll be putin this on the menu more often! 😉

  232. wrath of the lamb

    i was partially successful in escaping your channel. i was saved by a squirrel. now my recommended list is about 2 of your videos, 6 squirrel and other animal videos, a couple of political videos, and some end of the world jesus videos.

    i love beef stroganoff, one of my alltime favorite dishes. so good. +Add to

  233. Reah Thorolund

    Oh man, if you stick a wee bit of horseradish in with the creme fraiche, some cayenne and a load of pepper, would go awesome on mashed potato. >_>

  234. Vunier DJI Inspire

    man i want to make this, then eat it

  235. FineLine RichardHoughton

    Your a smart guy. You don’t give any specifics on this video. You set us up to go to your website. No good. Cya R

  236. gingle kitty

    It is also great if served by topping it with thinly sliced very crispy french fries, garnished with chopped parsley and garlic

    1. Camila

      mina blackwell that’s how we do in Brazil. We serve with finely cut French fries 🙂 and rice.

  237. breker19er

    Lmoa at the Putin joke!😂😂

  238. Jessica Barton

    making this right now!

  239. The Jazz Monastery

    I like your vids. do you do them yourself, or do you have a team helping?

    1. Jordan Montgomery

      The Jazz Monastery

      He has said in other videos that its really difficult to eat when looking through a view finder, so I’m guessing he does this all by himself.

  240. Gareth Walters

    I like to include a splash of brandy

  241. Eric Johnson

  246. The Truth

    i have day old KFC in the fridge, I think ill have to tear it up. Thanks chef John for making me hungry

  247. Женька и Конь

    I’m Russian and I should admit that your recipe is better, than the original Russian Beef Stroganoff recipe. I don’t know why it gave me that association, but I would say that you flavored it with a little bit of France. :)) Maybe because of the wine or the fact that Russian version is more rough and yours is more tender, or maybe because nobody uses creme fraiche or chives for Beef Stroganoff in Russia….I don’t know, but it looks cool. I’ll definitely try it. TY.

    1. Nancy Guillen

      Женька и Конь I’ve tried this recipe and it’s literally heaven in your mouth. Try it! 😊

    2. Greg Nikolaev

      Yes, we add it to everything. Almost every Russian soup (borsh, shti, solyanka. rassolnik) is eaten with a tablespoon of sour cream.

    3. bitch lasagna

      you are goddamn right

    4. mikedoesseo

      Does everyone in Russia use sour cream?

    5. D J

      Beef Stroganoff has so many variations in Russia I doubt you can claim you’ve tried them all. And creme fraiche is also almost the same as thick Russian smetana. Also there are versions with salted gherkins and mustard, with mushrooms and without. Tenderness is really matter of how the meat is cut and the quality of meat itself.

  248. CFCninja

    Gonna make this with chicken breast instead

    1. Adannor Tlaya

      I make it with chicken too, turns up pretty well. I just let it sit in the sauce for a while – although it doesn’t need to in order to tender up, it still helps to up the flavour a lot.

    2. Joseph Stalin

      CFCninja Oh no 🙁

  249. adam heeley

    My creme fraiche didnt work. I think it is because I used UHT (Ultra) pasteurized cream. I will have to try again.

    1. Camila

      adam heeley yes. That’s because the amount of fat in uht cream is very low compared to the fresh one, the one you make Chantilly with. The amount of fat has to be high. Try again with fresh heavy cream and it will probably work better. R

  250. slyplaymike1

    I think President Vladimir Putin would love it to

  251. AJ Sweeney

    A red wine also works well and adds it’s own version of flavour to this recipe. The cheaper the wine the tastier it is to. Also completely agree with the egg noodles as the choice of bedding for this dish!

  252. Shaun Hostetler

    Made this and served it over couscous YUMMY!!!

  253. Louisa Agate

    Can I substitute marsaapone cheese for creme fresh?

  254. Giannis Todorov

    thank you for the great recipe! have a great day.

  255. Marc Trujillo

    where did you get that pan from, recent culinary student and just moved out so im buying more cookware

    1. Suzanne Baruch

      It looks like a Cuisinart Multiclad Pro to me, although I could be wrong. You can’t go wrong with that line of cookware.

  256. Sasha Villarreal

    I made This reciepe for dinner and it came out soo delicious. It was beyond amazing and im not the best cook. 🍴👌

  257. Don Carmen

    You are a dangerous human being!But in a good way!

  258. Buddysimo Simonetta

    i put in a squirt of ketchup too

  259. Deplorable Snowcloud

    I like to add a red wine to this with oregano.

    1. Deplorable Snowcloud

      +Suzanne Baruch
      Yes, I usually use a dry sherry or marsala. 

    2. Suzanne Baruch

      I’m with you on the wine. I was thinking that sherry or perhaps a bit of marsala would be nice. Or maybe burgundy in a pinch.

  260. MetallicaFan0503

    I can’t make anything if it isn’t milk and cereal so I just buy it from noodles n company lol

  261. Ann Scholl

    Instead of using the less expensive cut of meat that ordinarily I have on hand, I used some amazing sirloin that I got today on sale. To make the meat go further and cook quicker, I cut it into thin strips, heated the EVOO into a large dutch oven, seasoned it with s&p and sautéed it like you did. Removed the meat, added the butter, onions, and shrooms, sautéed again as you said. Poured in a generous amount of white wine, realized I forgot the garlic so added that, allowed the veggies to absorb most of the wine, added large box of beef stock, the meat, Worcestershire sauce, and some paprika. Brought it all to a boil, lowered heat to a simmer, put the lid on and simmered till meat was fork tender. Removed lid, allowing it to simmer till liquid was reduced to half. Mixed some flour with beef stock and poured into mixture to thicken. Returned lid, removed from heat and let stand while I prepped the wide noodles. Right before serving I added a generous amount of sour cream (gotta use what’s on hand) and gently folded into the meat mixture till thoroughly blended. Thank goodness I made a large pot of this stuff cuz everyone wanted seconds! I didn’t do everything exactly as you did, but close. As we say in my island home in Hawaii, braddah, da stuffs was onolicious! Broke da mout! Mahalo!

  262. Kiersten Kelly

    That’s definitely not how you make beef stroganoff

  263. raginVocals

    That was soooo simple and so fun to make. My 10 yr. old and I created this meal tonight and the family totally loved it. And the 5 yr. old in the house said, ” ‘ And as always, ENJOY. ‘ “

    1. Ms Portley Rind

      raginVocals hahahaha thats funny, he must be familiar with chef John

  264. cmdrmonkey

    This was the best beef stroganoff I’ve ever had. Excellent recipe. I had no idea what I was missing eating hamburger helper stroganoff with normal sour cream all those years.

    1. Tony Samson

      hammy helper is sheet.

  265. Drew MC

    Red onion yum yum

  266. SAMUEL

    you should try it on fried potatoes

  267. Fastbiker100


  268. RuudJH

    I don’t think it was invented, or even named, in Russia.

    1. RuudJH

      I seem to remember I heard on a tv cookery show that it was actually a french chef working for the Russian tsar at the time, who thought it up.
      Now I’m reading wiki on it, it seems genuinly russian, so i’m wrong.

    2. ツLHEK

      Im wondering how you came up with this

    3. SAMUEL

      it actually was. Traditionally however it has more onions in it and is served over fried potatoes

  269. MyNigger

    Strokin-off? LOL

  270. onome larry


  271. lekkki1

    No Putin jokes are funny, but you are.

  272. Miya Elli

    I eat rice with it. The sauce mixing with the rice just gives me the best feeling.

  273. 8trigrammer

    Waaaait a minute dude, no tarragon?

    1. curiousSOUL22

      Yeah… I kinda felt the same about the absence of nutmeg.

  274. PaulD

    I need to make peace with this dish, as my first experience was a catastrophy, your video makes me want to give it a second chance 🙂

  275. Mikael Jensen

    Boeuf SAUTÉ Stroganoff is not supposed to be a slow dish. It is supposed to be made with a quick sauté’d tender cut of beef and then served with mashed potatoes or french fries (which I think works better). In short you are doing every single thing wrong in this recipe. Sure you can just call it some braised dish with beef but it is not Boeuf Stroganoff.

    1. Mikael Jensen

      No need to be rude.

    2. cmdrmonkey

      Look at this ridiculous Asperger’s case who thinks he knows more than everyone. STFU idiot no one cares.

    3. Suzanne Baruch

      Mikael Jensen: ORIGINALLY, this dish called for braising the meat for 23 minutes after it was added back into the sauce. This is according to Russian Princess Alexandra Kropotkin, who first popularized this dish outside Russia in her 1947 cookbook. I’m not sure what recipe you’re referring to, but to say that this is “not supposed to be a slow dish” is blatantly incorrect. CJ has chosen to braise for an hour, but that is entirely due to the cut of meat he selected. Had he selected a more tender cut of meat, an hour would be unnecessary and he could have braised for 23 minutes. (In fact, Kropotkin’s recipe originally called for “fillet of beef or lean part of the tenderloin.”)

    4. Mikael Jensen

      And yes you can alter recipes but when you take away the egg yolk first and then the butter and then the tarragon it is no longer sauce bearnaise.

    5. Mikael Jensen

      It might seem harsh but that is simply who I am. I do not hold it against you or extent any compassion to you. I simply do not consider it in my argumentation. I commented on the punctuation because it hindered my understanding of what you wrote.

  276. Cocaine Johnsson

    is saucier an option? saucier. always always saucier, so good.

  277. Kimmo Laine

    Is it normal to drool while watching these videos?

    1. Ms Portley Rind

      Kimmo Laine totally

  278. ESO529

    That’s how I learned it from my Mamma … except that she always flambeed the meat and cut some pickled cucumbers in it. For 4 servings take 3-4 pickled cukes, slice them, add them and let it simmer. The rest is the same. D e l i c i o u s!!!

    1. ESO529

      @Warvell1 – why be so harsh on yourself ;-)? You acted in good intentions, so where’s the problem? We’re not going to war over a cuke or pickles for that matter! Have a good day and try the recipe of my Mom if you want … with pickles or with pickled cucumers – LOL!

    2. Warvell1

      I did assume a country might have to do with it, but I think in English that’s always the case. I suspected that English might be a second language for you, but I also thought I could be wrong and didn’t want to make assumptions. So, instead I tried to word my post so that it would either prompt you for an answer if I was wrong, or inform you of a potential area of confusion if I was right. Honestly I probably should’ve said nothing, but whatever.

    3. ESO529

      @Warvell1 – that might be true where  you live … but not in my country of residence nor in my home country. Always count in that on Youtube there’s not just one country/nationality – LOL!

    4. Warvell1

      Pickled cucumbers are just called pickles.

  279. serenity rahn

    please don’t hate me for this but sometimes i use beef tongue in this recipe for the nice texture …

    1. GizmoBee1702

      Jared Greenwald Local Basque restaurants in northern Nevada make a delicious beef tongue dish. Most don’t know it’s tongue. Just as well….

    2. IX Xi

      I used dog tongue but its texture was abit ruff

    3. serenity rahn

      that actually sounds pretty decent for those days when you just want something hot and quick. wouldn’t call it beef stroganoff tho….

    4. TheEpicSpire

      I use hot dogs, Ramen noodles, and creme of mushroom soup.

  280. Dustin Lindsey

    4. Eric Johnson

      Agree! CH=hef John puts out great material. Captures the sense of “home” and the warmth of amazing food. I love to cook and I find these videos so amazingly simple and helpful. Not too chatty, very informative and fun! Chef John for President!!!

  281. mixwell1983

    From my ancestory background im a mutt from german,irish and some cherokee from the states but i drink vodka soo much i should be russian

  282. mixwell1983

    I think what you serve it over makes a difference on thickness. Over rice leave it watery because the rice will absorb the liquid. Over noodles maybe thicken it more because the noodles wont absorb the liquid like rice will.

  283. João Vitor Turchetti

    you guys should look for brazilian stroganoff, made with tomato sauce. way better than any other

    1. Ms Portley Rind

      João Vitor Turchetti ewwww if its made with tomato then it is not stroganoff, get your own recipe and stop trying to rip off

  284. Debbie Mcclure

    Looks amazing chef John and snds amazing 🙂 🙂

    Made it this way tonight. It’s on point. Simple to make, but tastes like dining out…or better. 👍🏻

  299. blackbikerboots123

    Tried this recipe, would fry the meat in a bit of butter/margarine instead of oil. Also would add more onion and other spices otherwise this recipe is very bland

    Super ,super,perfeckt!Thank you.

  313. Christy p

    Haha that Putin joke

  314. Jordan Mattes

    Interesting fact: Stroganoff did not originally have mushrooms.

    1. bitch lasagna

      i did, i think it was made by a russian soldier. He had beef and wine in his back pack, and he found some mushrooms lying around and hence he made this dish.

    2. Caligula Longhbottom

      Also likely was nothing like this period lol. It was made famous by a count, aristocracy. It was probably much lighter than this who knows. Also probably had what? creme fraiche?

    3. Officer Nivelle

      stop cursing Jordan

    4. Suzanne Baruch

      Interesting fact: it ALSO didn’t originally have what we think of as “sour cream” or onions, either! But who cares, it’s tastier this way.

    5. curiousSOUL22


  315. tackless

    you can actually use any meat you want. hamburger ,sausage, chicken, hell I have even used meatballs to make it . its all good. I also add a little paprika it just makes it a little better.

    You Putin one too many puns.

  322. tɦɛ ʀiɳg ѳԲ ɗɛɱoɳร

    Add sliced red bell peppers with the onions. Mix the chives in with the creme fraiche before moving it to the fridge.

  323. charles derenne

    FYI , the beef should be cut bigger, and cook for at least 2 hours in tomato concentréYou should be able to slice the beef with your fork , you can had the russian pickle as well ( it’s the original recipe ) and also the red paprika powder .

  324. ndzapruder

    The clock on the wall reflected in the lid of the pan had magical timing.
