Easy Beef Stroganoff

Ever since my friend Elaine made me Beef Stroganoff for dinner a few weeks ago, I have been craving it relentlessly. So, on a quick trip to the market to pick up prescriptions, I also grabbed the ingredients for this simple, but delicious Beef Stroganoff.

Beef Stroganoff

Easy Beef Stroganoff Ingredients:

  • 1 pound browned, drained ground beef (I cook mine up ahead of time and freeze it in 1 pound batches)
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 8 ounces sliced mushrooms (my preference is baby portabella, but white is good too)
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic (jarred is fine if you don't have fresh)
  • 16 ounces sour cream
  • 2 beef bouillon cubes , dissolved in about 1/4 cup hot water. (I actually prefer Better than Bouillon, no dissolving necessary)
  • 12 ounce package of wide flat noodles, prepared per package instructions (I used whole grain, but egg noodles would work well too)

Easy Beef Stroganoff Directions:

  1. Using a large pan, saute onion and mushrooms in butter or oil until onion is translucent and mushroom is becoming limp. Add garlic and saute for another couple minutes.
  2. Add ground beef, sour cream and bouillon. Stir until well mixed and cook on medium/low until hot throughout.
  3. Spoon over noodles and enjoy!

Serves 4-6.


  1. I love the idea of whole wheat noodles. My family only eats them when I serve with a good sauce. If they can taste the noodle they balk. I bet this recipe would mask the taste nicely. Thank!

  2. Please come and check out my blog at Let me know what you think and please please please leave a comment. See I begged and I am a stranger how weird and serious is that? Thank you :)

  3. That looks and sounds delish. I love beef stroganoff. It was so great spending the weekend with you at the Food Blog Forum.

  4. Made this tonight - and it was another crowd pleaser! Mom and Dad came to visit - loved it, and husband liked it so much he ate about 3 servings.

    I did try a new product - rather than the bullion you suggested, I used the new Knorr's concentrated beef broth and dropped it right in with the sour cream. I think it really was a nice touch.

    I also used a white truffle and garlic olive oil to sautee the onions.

    I must say - this dish was amazing.


I eat up comments!!! Nom nom nom.
