I have used just about everycut of beef in this easy beef stroganoff recipe and it always turns out great. We love using ground beef, it’s easy and affordable.

Keep in mind that if you buy stew beef chunks, they will work great in this easy beef stroganoff recipe but you’ll need to cook them longer so they aren’t tough. A lot of readers have commented that they used their pressure cooker to soften stew meat before making the recipe – such a great idea! Nicer cuts of beef will be more tender which can be important in this dish since it is cooked quickly.

Notes

You can use beef chunks of any kind or ground beef in this recipe.

The beef chunks will be more tender if you use a nicer cut of meat. I have used beef stew chunks in the past, but they can be tough. Cooking them longer will help. We actually love this recipe with ground beef, just be sure to drain off the excess grease.

I also love using leftover beef in this recipe. It’s a great way to use leftover steaks, roast, or anything other leftover cut you don’t want to waste. Just omit steps 1 and 2 and start by sautéing the onions.
