City's victory took them back to second spot in League Two.
In a closely fought encounter at Forthbank, Elgin could even afford a missed penalty as they battled through to a 2-1 victory.
Aidan Sopel's header from a Josh Peters assist proved to be the winner six minutes after half time.
Manager Gavin Price handed Sopel a start in place of Conor O'Keefe, who had picked up an injury in training during the week.
There was also a first start for ex-Ross County player Joel MacBeath, who teamed up with Peters in a new-look City attack.
Kane Hester was suspended and Smart Osadolor had to settle for a place on the bench for City.
Neither side created much in the way of scoring opportunities until Elgin were awarded a penalty when Jack Leitch handled in the box on 38 minutes.
Russell Dingwall had already netted two spot kicks this season including one against the Binos, but this time his effort was well saved by keeper Cammy Binnie.
Within a minute the visitors did find the net and it was centre back Stephen Bronsky, fresh from making his 100th appearance for the club, who rose to head home Dingwall's corner.
Elgin kept their lead until half time but just two minutes after the restart, Stirling levelled when Kurtis Robert's cross from the right looped over Tom McHale into the top corner of the net.
Stirling had their tails up with Andy Ryan testing McHale from distance, but City responded well to restore their advantage.
Sopel was the hero, nodding in Peter's cross for his first goal in competitive football for the club.
Stirling's Ryan struck the top of the bar as they chased a second equaliser, but Elgin stayed firm to see the game out for victory.
Two home matches are up next for the Black and Whites against Cowdenbeath on Saturday and Annan Athletic the week after.
