Our Favorite Beef Stroganoff Recipe


Beef Stroganoff

Cheers-2-Wine is pleased to bring you our favorite beef stroganoff recipe. This delicious beef stroganoff makes a delightful meal for four. This is a hearty meal that is a family favorite. Serve with roasted asparagus and garlic bread for a complete meal.

During the summer our “go to” dessert to accompany this dish is Chocolate Covered Strawberries. Easy to make and a treat for all!

Wine Pairing

Pinot Noir is always a good wine choice to go with a dish rich with mushrooms. Drink the same wine that you use in preparing the stuffed mushrooms to serve with the dish. If you can find it, Zorzal Gran Terroir Pinot Noir from Argentina would be an excellent pairing. Wines from Chiles offer some of the best bargains for Pinot Noir. This delicious wine sells for less than $20.

Another excellent Pinot Noir (and easier to find) is Eyrie Pinot Noir Estate from the Williamette Valley of Oregon. This is an elegant Pinot Noir with marvelous flavors of blackberry and spice that will only make the mushrooms taste even better. I sometimes see this Pinot for sell in the grocery store. I’d suggest your own favorite Pinot Noir…or whatever wine you love to drink!

What to Serve With This Delicious Beef Stroganoff

I’d serve this dish with your favorite salad and whatever type of bread you favor. It’s a hearty dish that doesn’t require huge side dishes. Select a dessert that you really savor to end the meal.
