We make our ground beef stroganoff on the stove top. It comes together super quickly because there are only a handful of ingredients. Depending on what cut of beef you use, it can be done in as little as fifteen minutes!
The backbone of a good hamburger stroganoff is going to be the sour cream base, so I implore you not to use the fat free or low fat stuff. Indulge in a rich an velvety sour cream. You won’t be sorry.
