Ground Beef Stroganoff Recipe

This hearty Hamburger Helper copycat recipe is way tastier and uses fresh ingredients that make a huge difference in the final dish.

Ingredients Needed for Stroganoff

Here’s a basic list of the ingredients you’ll need to make this tasty one-pan dinner. As always, you can find the full (printable) recipe in the box below.

  • Mushrooms – you can use white or brown mushrooms
  • Butter
  • Onion
  • Garlic Powder
  • All Purpose Flour
  • Paprika
  • Dry Sherry Wine – you can also use beef broth as a substitute for the cooking wine
  • Beef Broth
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Egg Noodles – we’re using dry egg noodles, and they cook right in the sauce!
  • Sour Cream
  • Fresh Parsley

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

How To Make Stroganoff with Ground Beef

Unlike my traditional Beef Stroganoff, this ground beef version does not require searing any bits of steak. Rather, we’re just browning the ground beef and adding a little flour at the end to help build our creamy sauce.

  • Start by sautéing the mushrooms in butter and olive oil until nice and tender. Remove the mushrooms and set aside for later.
  • Add the ground beef and diced onion to the pan and cook until no longer pink. Drain any fat and return to heat.
  • Sprinkle with the flour and paprika and cook just one minute until thickened, then splash in the dry sherry and scrape any browned bits off the bottom of the pan.
  • Gradually pour in the beef broth and bring to a simmer. Add in the dried egg noodles and cover, until the noodles are nice and tender.
  • Finally, stir in the sour cream, parsley and the reserved mushrooms and dinner is ready!

What To Serve with Ground Beef Stroganoff?

This is one of those meals that we don’t have any problems serving by itself or with a simple side salad. However, if you’re looking to make it more substantial, try any of these sides…


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

How To Make Stroganoff Sauce Creamy?

The secret ingredient that really takes this ground beef stroganoff recipe to the next level is the addition of sour cream right at the end.

If you’re not a fan of sour cream, try using plain greek yogurt. You can also try stirring in 4oz. of cream cheese, but the sauce might end up being a little more thick.

DAIRY FREE OPTION? Can’t have dairy? Try using a dairy-free sour cream substitute instead. You can also use margarine instead of butter when sautéing the mushrooms.

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

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

      1. Shawn

        Yes, you’ll just use 1/4 cup of beef broth to splash into the pan to help “deglaze” the pan and scrap off any browned bits, then you can proceed with the remaining 4 cups of beef broth.

    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?

  3. 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!

      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.

  4. Shannon

    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??

    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!

  6. Natalie Laine

    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.

  7. 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.

      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

  8. 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!

  9. 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.

  10. Jennifer

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

  11. 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!

    The best stroganoff I’ve ever had!! So easy and delicious. The best part is that my picky eater loved it, gobbled up 3 plate fulls mushrooms and all!!…..I’m making it again tonight!

  13. Sherry

    Awesome ! Stumbled across your website about a week ago and made then. It is just my husband and myself, I always only use 1/2 lb of ground chuck and freeze ( or have already precooked and frozen in small Tupperware containers)
    I still do everything the same. Is a great simple inexpensive meal ! I cannot wait to try some of your other recipes.

  14. Polly Darby

    i make this st
    roganoff recipe quite often only i use a can of cream of mushroom soup instead of mushrooms, for the people that don’t like mushrooms. very tasty!

  15. Amanda

    So glad I came across this on your Facebook page and this looked great. Needed a quick dinner option for tonight. Hubby and small kids loved it.

  16. Emily Gaboury

    This recipe is great! I have used ground turkey instead of beef. It was a huge hit for everyone all of us who ate it. I recommended this to a friend, and her family loved it as well!

  17. Ashley

    Made this tonight… I added 1 diced green pepper with the hamburger and onion. I didn’t have any dry white so I still added some sweet white wine and the beef broth. I also added a tablespoon of cream cheese with the sour cream at the end. Will definitely be making this again!!!

  18. Michelle

    Made this for dinner tonight and could not believe how quickly and easily it came together… SO delicious, too! Going into our regular rotation!

  19. A*M

    Excellent! Made this tonight and added fresh garlic and a little more sour cream. Also swapped a dry white wine instead of sherry since I had that on hand. It made 5 generous servings. I served it with steamed broccoli.

  20. Lori

    This looks great! No one in my family likes sour cream, so could I leave it out? Or maybe substitute something else like greek yogurt? I don’t want to mess it up! Thanks!

  21. Carol

    Would leaving out the sour cream make a difference? I am not a fan of sour cream or cream cheese, yogurt or anything like these.

  22. heather

    This was excellent… and great for leftovers! I’ve tried a few stroganoff recipes that just didn’t do it for my family, but this one was a winner! Thank you!

  23. Erica

    Thank you for a recipe and for optimism! you are very inventive, and you surprised me. Such recipe of beef stroganoff is present nowhere.

  24. Janelise

    Wonderful, thanks – here’s a tip back to you: Add a dessertspoon of Worcestershire Sauce and it’s XLNT. Have a great weekend Shawn and Happy Mother’s Day

  25. Vicki Hansen

    I don’t always get home for lunch or know until later in the day who is going to be home to eat or not. So remembering to get the hamburger out of the fridge to thaw is not on my “to do” list. So when hamburger goes on sale… I but 20 – 30 pounds and brown it all up at the same time. Some I brown onion in with the hamburger. That way the next time I need to make BBQ, Spaghetti, Tacos, Tater-tot Casserole or this delicious recipe you posted today… it’s all ready to go. 2 Minutes in the microwave and it’s ready to go.
    Thank you for sharing your tasty talents!
