I love stroganoff in just about any form!  There is just something about the luscious silky sauce that gets me every time.  This Creamy Chicken Stroganoff is a slightly lightened up version that we absolutely love.  And then you can do fun thing like use beef ravioli for the beef in the recipe.  This Skillet Beef Stroganoff Ravioli is such a great quick and easy version.

Do you have any favorite dinners from when you were a kid? You try and try to recreate them, or follow the recipe, but they are never what you remember. Mom’s cooking has a way of doing that! I have a couple that I still make today.  Goulash is one that is a staple, as well as traditional Beef Stroganoff.

This hamburger stroganoff version is such a great weeknight dinner that you can make in one pan on a busy night.  It uses ground beef to make it not only fast but budget friendly as well.  Plus tons of mushrooms make it one of my go to meals.

How to Make Ground Beef Stroganoff

This is seriously so easy.  It has so much flavor you are not going to believe that you got it on the table in just minutes!

  1. Cook sliced mushrooms in butter until they are browned. Then remove from the pan and let them sit until the end. If you want to speed this up even further, you can do this in a separate pan. 
  2. Brown ground beef, onions and garlic together.  Mix in flour and stir until it is all mixed in.  
  3. Add broth and noodles and simmer until the noodles are cooked.  
  4. Remove from the heat and mix in the mushrooms and sour cream until everything is creamy and mixed together.

Tips for Making Beef Stroganoff

  • Mushrooms – I like to use baby bella mushrooms because they have more flavor.  But you can use white button mushrooms if that is what you have. Any combination of mushrooms will work, so if they are on sale or you have some in the fridge, go ahead and use them!  
  • Sauce – make sure you remove your pan from the heat before you stir in the sour cream.  Sour cream has a tendency to curdle if you heat it, so removing it from the heat ensures you get a smooth and creamy sauce. 
  • Ground Beef – I use lean ground beef to make this recipe, but you can use what you have.  Just make sure to drain any fat away or your dish will be greasy. You can also substitute a different protein, but the taste will change.  I do add Worcestershire sauce to the beef to up the flavor.  If you use ground turkey I would considering adding beef bullion to the broth to give it an even beefier flavor.

This is such a great dinner recipe that the whole family will love.  Try it today and get dinner on the table in no time!

    1. Yes. I would store in small individual portions for her. Then you can just take one out, put it in the fridge to thaw and microwave to give to her.
