You guys, I can’t help myself. I’m simply obsessed with making your life easier. You’re welcome.

The base of this One Skillet Ground Beef Stroganoff starts with tender mushrooms.

How am I making your life easier? Well, my brain won’t stop coming up with new and exciting one skillet recipes. I mean, why on earth would we need more than one skillet in our kitchens these days?!?

Ok, maybe that’s a little crazy. After all, what if we want to make TWO, one-skillet dinners at the same time?! Options.

Add the dry noodles straight into the pan on this One Skillet Ground Beef Stroganoff and watch what happens!

Speaking of options, let’s talk about this One Skillet Ground Beef Stroganoff. The base flavors of this simple dish stem from the mushrooms that are sautéed until tender.

We remove the mushrooms from the skillet temporarily to brown some hamburger and onion, then pour in our beef broth and… get this… DRY egg noodles!

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, even the egg noodles get cooked right in the same skillet. Brilliant!

Just before the One Skillet Ground Beef and Stroganoff is finished cooking you add in the special ingredient to make it extra creamy!

Toss the mushrooms back in (hello flavor!) and let the egg noodles cook until tender.

We’re almost done! All that’s left to do is add in the special ingredient that takes this beef and noodle dinner to the next level.

Sour cream is the key ingredient to making this One Skillet Ground Beef Stroganoff extra creamy!

Stir in a little sour cream to give this dish that extra creaminess. The flavors remind me so much of my Swedish Meatballs and just good ol’ comfort.

My whole family LOVED this One Skillet Ground Beef Stroganoff! I loved how easy this dinner recipe was and clean up was a breeze!

Tender mushrooms and egg noodles mingle with ground beef and onions in a creamy sauce that’s to die for.

My kids each asked for seconds on this one, which is a total win in my book!

    Yum! The only changes I made were to use 1/2 tsp smoked paprika and 1/2 tsp regular, and use white (dry) vermouth instead of sherry. It makes lots and it’s completely delicious! What’s also great about this recipe is that you don’t need to measure the ingredients much – 8oz mushrooms, 4 c. beef broth, 4 c. egg noodles and 1 lb beef is the basic package size of these items that the grocery store sells. Mine anyway. Super easy shopping. …..Putting this on the regular rotation.

    I have tried many recipes for beef stroganoff because my family loves it. But most recipes were watery, bland, or resulted in a broken sauce…ick. The first time I made this recipe my whole family was so impressed! It’s become a staple on my meal list. It’s fool proof! It comes out delicious and creamy every time! Thanks!

  3. Debbie Mann

    This was absolutely delicious. Sadly, I didn’t salt it enough, but, next time I will be a tad more liberal. Thank you so much for sharing. This recipe was easy and very tasty! Definitely staying on my menu!

  4. Tracey

    This was so good. My husband was talking about how much he loved beef stroganoff the other day (childhood memory of hamburger helper). No way I could do hamburger helper and I found this recipe. So simple and delicious. The only changes I made were dry vermouth instead of sherry and Greek yogurt instead of sour cream.

  5. Debra

    Made this for my hamburger helper addicted husband tonight and he loved it! Added fresh jalepeno pepper to the onion mixture and omitted the alcohol but otherwise was an excellent recipe to add to my rotation thanks!

    Made this last night. Very good and easy. I like that you don’t have to use a second pot to boil the nodles. Next time I will use low sodiium Better than Beef Boullion. Reduse the salt taste for me, husband thought it was perfect. This is a keeper!!!!!!

    1. If you wanted to use something other than the egg noodles, you’ll want to reduce the amount of liquid to about 2 1/2 cups and use only 2 cups of a short grain pasta, like macaroni or rotini.

    I would like to know the brand of skillet in your photo. I don’t recognize the emblem. I’m looking forward to trying your recipe.

  8. Theresa

    Super yummy! I just tried it today and everyone eating told me how delicious it is! Thank you for this tasty recipe 🙂

  9. Anne Jones

    I have looked in all my local supermarkets for the same egg noodles that are in the recipe but can’t find them, can you please tell me what brand they are please?

  10. Karlene

    You completely ripped this recipe off from TASTY and took their video and marketed it as your own like you did it all. NOT COOL. What a joke!

    1. Karlene

      I would like to apologize for what I have said. It was wrong and I was wrong. Upon further investigation they had taken it from you. And my stupidity made me speak too soon. Your recipe was very delicious my family & I have enjoyed it very much. Again, I truly apologize for my comment it was undeniably rude and uncalled for.

    Hi there! I have one gluten free person that can’t have the noodles. Would it change the flavor/consistency to make the noodles in another pot? Would I still simmer the beef broth the same amount of time??


  12. Tamie

    We had this for dinner tonight. Very good! Everyone went for seconds! I used frozen mushrooms. Also I didn’t have sherry on hand so I used some red wine instead. Thank you!

  13. Hi! Thank you for a delicious recipe! I just made this for my husband and I for dinner.
    I have to eat gluten and dairy free for health reasons not just because it’s a fad. This looked amazing and I felt it was pretty easy for me to adjust for my sensitive digestive track.
    I swapped the butter for vegan butter. Delicious! (Miyoko’s brand or Melt rich & creamy are the two that I like.) I used only 2 tablespoons of GF flour instead of 3, I used Jovial brand GF egg noodles, and I used a can of full fat coconut milk in place of the sour cream. I also went ahead with the dry sherry. Yum! So glad that I did! It elevates the flavors!!!!
    I also decided to add some organic peas to offset the color. 🙂
    My husband love the flavors, the texture and asked for me to make sure this was in our regular meal rotation.

  14. Sherry

    I have made this several times. Found sometime last fall. Quick easy 1 pot. Tastes awesome ! I just have it saved to my favorites.
    I have used fresh and canned mushrooms both are good. I know one time I thought I had fresh parsley , it was cilantro still tasted pretty good.
    I will normally serve with really chunky homemade pico, balances it out well.

    1. I enjoyed this recipe…..reminded me of good ole hamburger helper but without the junk in it…..I used no yolk egg noodles to lower the cholesterol

  15. Hannah

    Just made this for dinner tonight and it was DELICIOUS! I used Madeira instead of Sherry to deglaze the pan because that’s what I had on hand, but either way I’m sure it would be equally as yummy. Will be making this recipe again and again!

  16. Jamie

    Wow this is delicious. I found this recipe while looking for something for ground beef last minute. I didn’t even have fresh mushrooms… Just canned. I also added a couple cups of spaghetti squash because my two year old pull it out of the freezer and asked for it. Even though I had to substitute some of the ingredients, this still turned out fabulous. I can’t wait to make it when I actually have the correct ingredients.

  17. Jennifer

    DH made this One Skillet Stroganoff last night. It was fantastic! Flavorful and filling. Cannot wait for him to do it again.

  18. Cheryl

    Thank you! Recipe looks quick and easy so I’ll look for other recipes on this site. I’m hoping “healthy” is one of the criteria included as well.

    I’d also like to know how to print bec/w/o an easy to print version w/easy to find recipe it makes it difficult to actually try this recipe!

    1. Hi Cheryl, the print button is located on the top of the recipe card. You should be able to push the button and a new tab will open up on your computer and a print version of the recipe will be ready for printing!

    1. Hi Brenda, the print button is located at the top of the recipe card. Click the print button and a new tab should open up with your computer’s print menu.
