Egg Nog Beef Stroganoff – StrogaNog

Egg Nog Beef Stroganoff - StrogaNog

Beef stroganoff made with egg nog instead of sour cream! I call it StrogaNog! The creamy sweetness and subtle spices of egg nog go so well in this beefy egg noodle dish!

Can you guys believe that tomorrow is December??? It’s time to crack out the Egg Nog! But what if say, you happen to spill some egg nog into the frying pan while cooking some delicious meat? Not to worry! Just make this stroganog to save the day. That is literally how I canme up with this idea! I was making stroganoff and drinking egg nog and lauughing to myself about the idea. Once I realized how well the name worked, I made it the next day!

Cooking the beef

It’s pretty important in this dish to really get some nice browning on the meat. It adds a lot to the final flavor of the sauce. I used a cast iron to really help with that. After the meat, onion, and mushroom is brown, add in some bourbon. In traditional stroganoff, this would be wine or brandy, but bourbon goes great with egg nog!

  1. You forgot to mention to deglaze the pan with a splash of sherry or cognac or something else before adding the egg nog and everything back in.
    Either way, this meal was awesome, and I don’t normally like mushrooms or egg nog. Happy December, everyone.

  2. This is such a brilliant idea! I bought the necessary ingredients to give it a try tonight and I can’t wait! 🙂
