Quick & Easy Ground Beef Stroganoff

This one-pot beef stroganoff is incredibly tasty and easy to whip up. And the best part is, there’s only one dish to clean up afterwards. Now that’s what I call my kind of cooking! (You’ll have to check out my Tried & True Cookbook for more recipes like this!)

This recipe has all the comforts of traditional stroganoff but without the processed canned soup! Instead you have a homemade, silky-smooth sauce with the rich flavor and texture from the fresh sautéed mushrooms, onions and beef broth. You’re going to love it. (And the husband and kids will, too!)

Homemade Stroganoff Ingredients

I know it probably seems like a lot of ingredients but trust me, it’s so worth it! The taste is amazing. Homemade is always best! If you’re looking for exact measurements, they can all be found in the recipe card at the end of the post.

  • Ground Beef: Lean ground beef is best. You can also switch things up and use ground pork, or even ground turkey for a leaner alternative.
  • White Onion: Chopped or minced finely depending on your preference.
  • Garlic Cloves: Minced fresh or in a marinated jar.
  • Mushrooms: Both sliced raw or canned mushrooms will work.
  • Butter: Adds richness to the beef stroganoff sauce and also helps create the roux to thicken.
  • Flour: Combined with the butter to create the roux. All-purpose flour works fine here.
  • Beef Broth: The flavorful base of the sauce.
  • Worcestershire Sauce: Adds a delicious pop of flavor! Don’t skip it!
  • Egg Noodles: These noodles will be added to the skillet uncooked. I like to use wide egg noodles, but really, any type of pasta works here.
  • Cream Cheese and Sour Cream: These get stirred in to create an extra creamy, tangy sauce for the beef stroganoff.
  • Dried Thyme: Garnish with this herb for more flavor and aromatics!
  • Salt and Pepper: Add as much or as little as you like to taste!

Only One Pot Stroganoff!

This beef stroganoff is so quick and easy to make! 30-minute meals that the whole family loves always seem to be a unicorn. So hard to find! Here is my full list of 30-minute meals for more dinner inspiration!

  1. Cook Beef and Vegetables: In a medium-sized skillet add the ground beef and cook and crumble until it is almost cooked throughout. Then add the onion, garlic, and mushrooms and cook until tender. Remove and then set aside on a plate.
  2. Sauce Mixture: Add in the butter and melt. Whisk in the flour until it creates a roux. Slowly add the beef broth and Worcestershire sauce. Add the noodles and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cook the noodles until al dente.
  3. Stir in Cream Cheese: Add the beef back to the pan with the cream cheese, sour cream, and thyme. Let the cream cheese melt and stir until heated throughout. Salt and pepper to taste.

Tips for Making Ground Beef Stroganoff

  • Ground Beef Substitute: You can use beef tips or try ground turkey, pork or chicken. However, using different ground meat will alter the deep richness beef brings to the meal.
  • Not a Fan of Mushrooms: You add a different vegetable instead, try peas, peppers or zucchini!
  • Avoid the Curdle: One of the biggest complaints I get are the sour cream curdles, this is because your dish is too hot. Try removing your pan from the heat and then slowly add in the sour cream and stir. Also add it in very last.
  • Liquid: If you find you don’t have enough liquid to cook your noodles add half a cup of water at a time until you reach your desired amount. If you have too much liquid, let it simmer off by cooking an extra 5 or so minutes before adding the dairy.

Storing Leftover Beef Stroganoff

This doesn’t freeze well because of the dairy in it but it stores great in the fridge for up to 4 days. It’s even better the second day after the flavors really meld together.
