Beef Mushroom Stroganoff is a quick and easy meal that is a favorite as the weather starts to cool off. Homemade stroganoff is made even easier using cream of mushroom soup, which gives it a creamy consistency and a savory flavor.

This hearty meal is delicious on it’s own but pairs great with a crisp spinach strawberry salad and a slice of garlic bacon cheddar loaf to soak up the delicious creamy sauce.

What is Beef Stroganoff

Originally created in Russia, beef stroganoff is made with sautéed pieces of beef served in a rich, creamy sauce and served over noodles.

Ground beef stroganoff is definitely an American dish now. It’s fully immersed in the history of American cookery and has been a family favorite for generations!

A classic recipe made easier using without sacrificing the creamy flavor!

  • 1/2-1 pound lean ground beef use more or less to make it as meaty as desired, 1/2 lb is usually a great ratio
  • 24-32 ounces medium-width egg noodles approx. 2 bags
  • 2 cans mushrooms sliced & drained
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 10.5 ounce can beef consomme an equal amount of beef broth plus one beef bouillon cube can be substituted
  • 12 ounces sour cream
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  1. Fill a large pot halfway with water, cover, leave it to boil over high heat.
  2. Meanwhile, crumble the beef into a large saucepan, add chopped onion and garlic powder. Sauté on medium-high until the beef is browned and the onion is soft. If the beef lets off more than 3 tablespoons of fat, drain it carefully. A little bit of fat will help the dish, while too much will make it greasy.
  3. Add the mushrooms, consommé, salt, and pepper to the beef & onion mixture. Simmer on low for 10 minutes.
  4. When the water is boiling, add the noodles and cook until they are soft but not soggy. Drain carefully, leaving the noodles in the large pot.
  5. Add the ground beef & mushroom mixture, cream of mushroom soup, and sour cream. Mix gently until everything is combined. Let it sit, covered, for about 5 minutes before serving, giving all the flavors some time to blend.
  6. This dish is best served on a plate since the flavors really develop as it cools. Taste before seasoning, then sprinkle sparingly with salt and pepper as desired.
