What is the best meat to use for beef stroganoff
Miranda is a contributor at Food52.
My father always made it with veal, but here, food52er bevi calls for NY strip steak, which I bet is delicious!
As always, questions like this are a great way to get to know your butcher!
Depends on what you mean by "best". Traditionally it's tenderloin. Flap meat makes an good, less expensive alternative. My personal favorite is flat iron steak -- both tender and economical.
I always use tenderloin. When I can buy an entire tenderloin on sale, I divide it into medallions, steaks, a roast and trim some up for Stroganoff.
I have always used strips of NY strip steak for the flavor you don't get with tenderloin. Also, I add thin cut strips of dill pickle. Mushrooms, onion, sour cream - and you are done.
