Making the Stroganoff

Easy Ground Beef Stroganoff is made with things I bet you have in your cupboard! You need ground beef, egg noodles, sour cream, cream of mushroom soup and some seasonings! That is it!

If you hate canned creamed soups this recipe is not for you! There are quite a few recipes that I use the canned creamed soups in, and I love how fast I can throw a meal together with them. Not to mention they give it great flavor! This recipe calls for it and it’s downright delicious!

I put my egg noodles (I like the extra wide egg noodles) on to cook first, I only use 1/2 lb, so half the bag of egg noodles. Then while the pasta is boiling and cooking I brown my ground beef, in a large skillet, then rinse it and drain it. Then the ground beef goes back into the same skillet.

SIDE NOTE: It is totally a personal preference on if you need to rinse your ground beef. Most people just drain their meat and don’t rinse it because they worry the lose all the flavor when they rinse it. I just feel better rinsing it…weird, I know….do as you wish.

Next, I add my can of cream of mushroom soup, sour cream and seasonings.

You can easily adjust the seasonings to your liking.

Last, add in the cooked egg noodles once they are done and drained.

I always salt and pepper to taste, then let it warm a bit longer, then taste and adjust again once all the flavors have warmed and come together!

Easy as that, and in under 30 minutes you will have a hot, delicious meal on the table that everyone will like!

Stretch this to feed more people

If you want it extra saucy, double the sauce.

This recipe feeds my family of 5 easily with leftovers (it makes about 8 cups so you could feed more than 5 depending on serving size).

If you are needing to feed more people, you can double the sauce and noodles. Add another can of cream of mushroom soup and more sour cream and seasonings and cook the entire bag (1 lb.) of egg noodles…it works great with the same amount of ground beef so you don’t have to add more (or add more ground beef, because really that is the best part!)

If you have leftovers it will keep in the fridge for 4-5 days and can be reheated in the microwave or stovetop.

KID APPROVED MEAL! Creamy Fast and Easy Ground Beef Stroganoff- on your table in 30 minutes or less!

Hope you enjoy!

    Made this with ground turkey and added some crushed red pepper. We are trying to eat lower carb and my husband isn’t crazy about low carb noodles (Carb Nada) But I mixed them in this and he gobbled it up. He loves comfort food and was glad I could make something that tasted great and worked for us too! Thanks for the great recipe!

    • Beth, The Butcher's Wife

      Hi there sisjoan! I am so happy to hear that it tasted great and worked for you guys!!!! The ground turkey and crushed red pepper sound tasty! Comfort food is my favorite but it’s not always healthy so I’m so glad this recipe could be made to work for you guys!!! Thanks so much for stopping by the blog and thank you for trying my recipes …and a big thanks for taking the time to comment and let me know you liked the stroganoff!!! Thank you so much!❤️😘

  2. I’m making this tonight but would like to add sliced baby Bella mushrooms, when would you suggest adding them in?

    • Beth, The Butcher's Wife

      Hi Jackie! I would add them in at the very end! It sounds delicious…. let me know how it turns out!❤️

  3. Can you freeze this once it’s cooked ?

    • Beth, The Butcher's Wife

      Hi Lindsay! I have never frozen it but I can’t see why it wouldn’t work…. the texture may be a bit different with the sour cream in it when it reheats, and I would try and undercook the pasta if you can so it doesn’t go mushy when thawing and reheating! If you try it let me know how it goes! ☺️

    Can you use it with out sour cream or substitute it with something else?

    • Beth, The Butcher's Wife

      Hi Elizabeth! The sour cream is used to make it creamier so you could use milk in place of it or another can of cream of mushroom soup. You can also add some beef broth and the sauce may be a bit thinner but tasty! Adjust the seasonings to taste as needed! Let me know how it turns out!😘

  6. Sadiya Ahmed

    I’m excited to start cooking this for my picky 2-year old! Would this dish pair well with some dry herbs such as oregano and/or basil?

    Thanks!
    Sadiya

    • Beth, The Butcher's Wife

      Hi Sadiya! I would try a bit of basil … that would pair much better than oregano which can be a bit strong! Curry powder would also add a bit of flavor that wouldn’t be overpowering. I would just add a pinch at a time of whatever you choose and let it warm throughout for the flavors to develop before adding more! Please let me know what you try and the results… dried herbs make dishes so tasty! Hopefully your 2 year old likes it! I have 3 boys and this has always been a hit! Happy cooking! ❤️😘

    Kids loved it! My local grocery was out of cream of mushroom so I bought beefy mushroom. Seemed to work just fine!

    • Beth, The Butcher's Wife

      Erika I am so happy to hear you guys loved it! Beefy mushroom soup sounds delicious… I’m going to try it! 😘

  8. I just started this and realized I forgot cream of mushroom soup. Can I omit or substitute it with anything? Thanks!

    • Beth, The Butcher's Wife

      Hi Michelle! You can use cream of chicken soup or any creamed soup in place of it! Also you could try using all sour cream and a little more Worcestershire sauce and season to taste!
