Vegan "Beef" Stroganoff by cyberactivist

Category: Main Dishes - Other

This recipe is suitable for a: vegetarian/vegan diet.



You need 2 cups "Not! Beef" strips (dehydrated beef substitute, available from Dixie Diner at...

...reconstituted for this recipe. I am not aware of any other meat substitute that would work as well as this does.


2 tablespoons soy margarine

2 tablespoons flour

1 vegetable bouillon cube dissolved in 1 cup hot water

1 cup non-dairy sour cream (see below for recipe)

2-3 tablespoons dry sherry

Juice from draining 4-oz can mushrooms

"Meat" Preparation:

Reconstituted beef strips (equivalent of 1-1/2 pounds)

4 tablespoons soy margarine

1 onion, chopped

4-oz can of sliced mushrooms, drained

1/2 teaspoon salt

Non-Dairy Sour Cream

1/2 lb. silken tofu

1/4 cup canola oil

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1-1/2 teaspoon sugar or honey

1/2 teaspoon salt



Reconstitute "Not! Beef" strips.


Melt margarine and flour together in a skillet, stir constantly until brown. Slowly stir in the bouillon and cook, stirring constantly until it thickens to the consistency of brown gravy. Let cool a few minutes and stir in the sour cream and sherry. Set aside.

"Meat" Preparation:

Melt margarine in large skillet. Brown the "meat," onion and mushrooms until fairly dark brown, being careful not to burn. Lower the heat to keep mixture just simmering, and stir in the sauce. Simmer 30-40 minutes, stirring frequently to keep from sticking.

Serve over rice or noodles (serves 4)

Non-Dairy Sour Cream

Combine in a blender: Blend until smooth and creamy. Makes 1-1/4 cups

Additional comments:


This is an adaptation of the traditional recipe as cooked up by Laura's mother. This is by far one of the best meals I have ever eaten!

FWIW, I make a dish very similar to this one, and TVP or veggie burger crumbles work very well in place of the suggested meat replacement. I also like using fresh mushrooms, as the juices released during the cooking add a nice richness to the sauce (although they do turn it a gray color).

cool. i've made something like this with tvp, and i add fresh mushrooms and usually canned peas as well. however, last time i made it i got a horrible stomach ache for like 3 or 4 days so i've been hoping to find a new recipe for it cause obviously something in mine doesn't agree with me.

although, does nutritional yeast go bad? that's the only ingredient i used that could possibly have been bad, everything else was sealed/fresh.

anywho thanks for the new recipe, shall have to try it next time.

Hope it disappears right here with the rain
But I know life is pain, not like a fairytale
Meaningless to pray, so just goin' on my way
