Dairy-free beef stroganoff is a great twist on the classic beef stroganoff recipe which is traditionally made with soured cream. But in this dairy-free beef stroganoff we’ve used a non-dairy alternative to cream - there are several available made from oats or soy. We also added a little lemon juice to give the slight sharpness of soured cream. Diary-free beef stroganoff is a quick dish to make using tender cuts of beef such as rump or sirloin steak. However to cut the cost of a stroganoff you can use lean pork steaks instead and even lambs liver cut into strips is very tasty cooked this way. Served with boiled rice and a crisp green salad it makes a delicious speedy meal.


  • 2tbsp olive oil
  • 500g rump or sirloin steak, cut into strips
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 175g chestnut mushrooms, sliced
  • 250ml dairy-free oat or soya cream substitute
  • 1tbsp tomato puree
  • 1tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1tsp paprika
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Rice, to serve

For vegetarians omit the beef steak and serve the mushroom sauce with Quorn peppered steaks.


  1. Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the strips of steak and fry over a high heat for 2 mins until browned. Remove from the pan with slotted spoon and set aside.
  2. Reduce the heat, add the onion and cook for 3-4 mins until softened. Add the mushrooms and cook for 2 mins, stirring occasionally. Pour in the cream and add the tomato puree, mustard and paprika. Season with salt and freshly ground pepper and heat, stirring, until hot but not boiling.
  3. Return the beef to the pan and simmer for 2 mins to heat through. Season with lemon juice to taste and add a little boiling water from the kettle if the sauce is too thick. Serve with rice.
