How to Serve Beef Stroganoff. Beef Stroganoff is a rich and creamy dish invented in Russia in the late 1800s. This dish consists of mushrooms, beef and a sour cream sauce served over a starch (usually noodles). If you have already made beef Stroganoff and want to know how to best serve it, follow these steps.

Put the cooked noodles on a plate. You can use any noodles you want, including whole wheat pasta, egg noodles, yolk free egg noodles or semolina pasta.

Ladle or spoon the beef Stroganoff on top of the noodles. A dollop of sour cream adds an extra rich taste, but remember not everyone cares for sour cream, so make it an optional garnish.

Place some freshly chopped scallions or green onions on top of the beef Stroganoff to add color and a mild onion flavor to the dish.

Add a few fresh sliced mushrooms to the beef Stroganoff. This adds visual interest to the dish and it echoes the mushroom flavor of the beef Stroganoff itself.

Grind some fresh black pepper onto the beef Stroganoff to taste.

Garnish with freshly chopped parsley, if desired. You can use either flat leaf parsley or curly parsley in this recipe.

Serve the beef Stroganoff immediately.


  • Serve beef Stroganoff with potatoes, white rice or brown rice instead of noodles for an interesting recipe variation. You can plate beef Stroganoff onto individual serving plates or onto one large serving platter. Consider serving slices of crusty bread alongside the beef Stroganoff. Diners can use the bread to sop up all of the extra Stroganoff sauce.
