A SPIN ON BEEF STROGANOFF

Ground Beef Stroganoff has been one of those recipes that we have been making for years. It is a great fast-fix dinner when we want some comfort food. So I decided I wanted to take a spin on a favorite and make these Beef Stroganoff Cups! Your favorite filling all stuffed into crescent roll dough then baked! It makes a great appetizer or dinner. They are fun, easy and super tasty and the whole family loves them! If you are looking to take a spin on a classic, then you absolutely must make this Beef Stroganoff Cup recipe.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:

What kind of ground beef is the best?

We like to use a lean ground beef for this recipe, at least 85/15. It will produce less grease so the crescent dough does not get soggy.

Do I have to use whole mushrooms?

No. You can also small dice or chop the mushrooms if you don’t like bigger pieces. I think the sliced mushrooms give a great meaty texture to the cups. Or you can leave them out altogether!

What can I serve with Beef Stroganoff Cups?

They would be perfect with some steamed vegetables or a side salad.

Can I use crescent rolls instead of a dough sheet?

If you can’t find crescent roll dough sheets or prefer not to use them, you can use regular crescent rolls. Make sure that the perforations are sealed really well before cutting. We do not want them to accidentally open up while baking and the sauce to seep out.

Can this recipe be doubled?

Absolutely! You will just need to bake in batches since you will have a total of 16.

How do I store leftovers?

I don’t recommend storing these in the refrigerator for long periods of time because of the sauce. It will make the crescents soggy. Plan on eating these as soon as they are made or within the first 24 hours. Otherwise, you can freeze them by wrapping each one individually in plastic wrap then placing in a freezer safe container. This will help with freezer burn. Reheat in the microwave until heated through.
