Prime Beef Stroganoff or how to use prime rib roast leftovers!

I had a lot of Prime Rib Roast left from our New Year's Eve dinner. We usually will have another full meal the next day and then I have to get creative. Usually I make some tacos or have "steak" and eggs for breakfast. This year, I decided to make a stroganoff. This, of course, is a willy-nilly recipe. I have made stroganoff before so I just winged it but it was easy to make. It was so delicious. If you have any leftover beef, including ground beef, this is a great way to re-use it and make a new meal. Yummo. 

Here is how I made my dish.

Saute some onions and garlic. 

Chop up some Portobello mushrooms. I use these because they are meaty and make the dish more hearty. 

Mix the mushrooms, onions and garlic and saute. 

Take your leftover meat and chop into chunks. 

Add the meat to the mixture and saute.

Add a little Vermouth or Port Wine to the mixture and cook it down. 

Add a little beef broth. I didn't have beef so I used chicken sock. 
I would say about a cup of broth will do it. 

To thicken the sauce, I used a little cornstarch. You can use flour as well.

Start cooking your noodles. 

Add the cornstarch to the mixture. Then add the a cup of sour cream into the 
mixture and whisk it all together. 

When the noodles are ready, put them into the mixture and make sure they are totally coated with the sauce. 

Viola! A delicious, fresh meal made with leftover beef. OMG it is so delicious! 

Buen Provecho!


  1. Having never made a prime rib, I'm astonished at the concept of having such lovely leftovers! But I think this would work with any good beef. I think I cook much the way you do, using ingredients you have on hand and adding the amounts that seem right rather than exact measurements from a book. This Strogonoff looks fabulous, and I'll keep it in mind the next time I have some nice leftover meat. Thanks!

  2. Looks so delicious! What a great idea to use meat leftovers for this recipe

    I made this with my leftover prime rib from Christmas and it was amazing! I didn't have vermouth, so I used white wine and I also added some heavy cream. I will definitely be making this again!

  4. This looks super! i just threw out a bottle of Vermouth, I had no idea what to do with it - now I still want to make this!
