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!

    This was really good, I didn’t boil the pasta in it, I just don’t like pasta like that and cook it separately.

    I did add 2 big teaspoons of dried dill and a big dash of allspice. Try it, it makes it so good!

  2. Martha Douds

    I’m wondering if I can double this as I have 2# of ground beef to use up. I have an electric skillet that might work, or a Dutch oven/stock pot. A crock pot which doesn’t seem appropriate. Suggestions?

    Made this tonight for my family. Everyone cleaned their plates completely! Absolutely delicious, easy, and quick. Will be making this one again and again! Thank you. Your recipes are so wonderful….

    I’ve made this recipe probably 10 times now and it’s a hit whether I use chicken stock or pieces and stems mushrooms. I do prefer it with Smoked Paprika though as well as doubling the amount of Sherry. Thank you for posting.

    After the ground beef is cooked do you remove it from the pan while the egg noodles cook or do you leave the ground beef in the pan when you add the beef broth and cook the noodles?

    Can I use different meat like stew meat in place of hamburger meat I don’t like it but I want to try this recipe of urs please let me know

  7. TL Moss

    ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS! I added lipton onion soup mix. I didn’t have the cooking sherry, I used regular broth(not low sodium)and I only used about a tbsp(didn’t measure) of sour cream. My family LOVED it. I will definitely make it again.

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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. Shawn

      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.
