What can I use instead of sour cream in beef stroganoff?
If you don’t enjoy sour cream you can leave it out. Stir in some milk with a teaspoon of lemon juice or even a heavy cream. If you need it to be dairy-free you can swap it for a dairy replacement or leave out the creamy texture altogether. Or even adding in a bit of mayonnaise can bring in that tangy flavor.
Go right ahead and allow your dish to cool down a bit then transfer to an airtight container. Then you can refrigerate the leftover stroganoff for 2-3 days. It reheats pretty well. Sometimes the sauce gets soaked up into the noodles.
If you need to add a splash of broth and stir to give it a creamy texture again if it seems dry.
