Beef and Broccoli Stroganoff

With a tropical cyclone bearing down on us, we’re stuck inside with some pretty soggy and cool weather…so we thought it was time to post a new Soul Warmer Recipe! For this particular one, we defrosted a pack of cubed beef from our local CSA so we could make a hearty stew. But then, as we got started, we realized that we had sour cream on hand (which we never do), so we switched it up and decided to make a non-traditional stroganoff. Of course, in this case, it was broccoli that delivered the most obvious bit of non-traditionality.

When all was said and done, the beef was super tender, the broccoli added a really fun bit of flavour, and the sauce coated all of the ingredients to give balance to each bite. We didn’t have any leftovers of this one, so I guess we’ll just have to make it again. We hope you enjoy too!

Time: 90 Minutes


  • Beef Cubes
  • Broccoli
  • Onion
  • Beef or Mushroom Stock
  • Mustard Seeds
  • Sour Cream
  • Egg Noodles
  • A couple tablespoons of Flour
  • A couple tablespoons of Water


  • Heat some butter in a Dutch Oven or other large pot.
  • Dice your onion, and add it to the melted butter. Cook until the onions turn opaque.
  • Add your cubed beef, and cook to brown.
  • Pour 2-3 cups of your stock over your meat, and add your mustard seeds. Cover, turn the heat to low, and braise for an hour so your beef becomes extremely tender.
  • As your beef braises, cut your broccoli into florets, and steam until they start to soften. Then, set aside.
  • When your beef has about 30 minutes of braising time left, boil a pot of water, and add your egg noodles. Boil until soft, and then drain the water.
  • When your beef is nearly done, add your broccoli, and stir to combine.
  • Mix your flour and water so that the flour is fully dissolved, and pour into your broccoli/beef pot to begin to thicken the liquids.
  • Scoop and stir in your sour cream to add body to your sauce.
  • Add your noodles, and stir to fully combine your ingredients into a cohesive dish.
  • Plate, devour, and enjoy!
