My family LOVES this dish! This is a very simple, yet delicious ground beef stroganoff recipe. I withheld the plain mushrooms because my family just aren’t fans. If you are, then definitely add some! Serve this up with a veggie and you’ve got a delicious weeknight meal. 🙂

Recipe type: Main Course
Serves: 4
  • 8 ounces extra wide egg noodles
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • ½ cup finely chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 packet brown gravy mix ( + water it calls for)
  • ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 (10¾ oz) can cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 teaspoons dried parsley
  1. Start by boiling egg noodles in a pot of water- as directed on package. When cooked, drain and put back in the same pot and put the lid on to keep them warm and so they wont dry out.

Give it a good stir. Add the gravy mix (+ water the packet calls for), sour cream and mushroom soup. Stir mixture. Cook on low heat for 10-15 minutes. Stir in the dried parsley.
  3. Serve egg noodles with beef mixture over the top. Enjoy ♥

  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.

  7. 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.
