Beef Stroganoff

This Easy Beef Stroganoff recipe is a classic dish the whole family will love. It’s filled with seasoned ground beef and a creamy mushroom sauce served over egg noodles. Enjoy it with a veggie for the perfect meal!

My family absolutely LOVES this dish. This is a very simple, yet delicious ground beef stroganoff recipe. I withhold the plain mushrooms because my family just aren’t fans. They don’t mind the cream of mushroom sauce, but wouldn’t eat this if it were packed with mushrooms. haha.

If you are a mushroom fan, then definitely add some! 🙂 I would suggest adding half a pound of freshly sliced mushrooms to the sauce before you start to simmer it. 

Beef Stroganoff

These easy skillet recipes are what my weeknight dinner dreams are made of. They’re so simple to prepare and from start to finish you can have this hearty meal on your table in 30 minutes. I like to serve ours with a side of broccoli and my family eats it right up.

Just a quick note- I like to simmer the beef mixture for a good 15 minutes. It gets rid of the strong sour cream scent, resulting in one fabulous savory sauce.

Traditionally, beef stroganoff is served over egg noodles, but you could serve this over any pasta of your choice. There is no going wrong with this incredible dish!

  1. I’ve used a recipe very similar to this for years. My family absolutely loves it. I like to add a few dashes of Worchestershire Sauce to the mixture after adding the sour cream & cream soup. For thickness, I don’t use beef broth. Instead, I either add beef bouillion granules or a packet of beefy mushroom dry soup mix to the meat after it browns.

  2. I made this tonight and it was sooo yummy! I halved the recipe because I was cooking for one and added mushrooms back in because I basically put mushrooms in any and everything I cook. It still came out super yummy! After I added the garlic and onion, I cooked it a little more before adding the broth just to get some more flavor and to make sure the onions were cooked. Thanks for sharing!!

  3. I was born in 1970… and this recipe has been a staple at my house growing up and at my house now. It’s my kids favorite meal! Because I have had many years to make this, I have changed some things. I don’t use the broth, and I use cream of chicken instead of mushroom, but sometimes I do add a can of mushrooms that I chop smaller (kids don’t seem to freak out as much not seeing “whole” mushrooms! LOL). Just another alternate just in case you don’t have broth or cream of mushroom on hand. (But I have had this recipe before, and it’s really good too!)

  4. Making this tonite. Even before adding the gravy is looked like the correct consistency. So I only added half the gravy suggested and it still looks kinda….runny. Did I miss something?

  5. Okay, so far I have tried your chicken cordon bleu casserole, your chic-fil-a copycat chicken sandwich and now this. So nice to break away from my regular recipes…adn these are truly delicious! I will be making all of them again!

  6. Just made this for dinner for my picky eaters! My husband doesn’t like mushrooms, son doesn’t like sour cream, and daughter doesn’t like ground beef. BUT THEY ALL LOVED IT! Said many times that I should make it again for our next meal…Thanks for sharing this recipe, I’m adding it to our weekly meal plan.

    Hi, my name is Mark. I am a veteran. Just made your Beef Stoganoff. My family loved it. We can’t wait to try your Garlic Roasted Carrots. Thanks for posting your recipes.

  8. Making this tonight for the first time, I don’t have packet gravy, I have jar gravy that I’m going to use instead and just add a little water. Going to saute some fresh mushrooms with the onions. I’ll let you know how it turns out. Thanks for the inspiration.

    ive made something similar to this recipe the only difference is I add beefy onion soup mix or onion mushrooms soup mix with water I don’t add any extra salt, or the chopped onion to it and my hubby loves it.

    I tried this a few months ago because I was looking for something to make with ground beef. It is now on the regular rotation. My family loves it. I always add a bunch of sliced mushrooms too.

    I have never liked beef stroganoff and kept putting off trying this recipe. It tasted wonderful. The only change that I made was I had leftover roast so I used that as my meat. Next I want to try making it gluten and dairy free.

    After cooking this recipe for about 15 times now I thought I would finally leave a review! This is absolutely amazing! I do add a little bit of onion soup mix and broth (whatever I have on hand) but other then that I follow as is…..me and my husband will always eat this as a staple in our house. Thank you so much!
