Ground Beef Stroganoff

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This cozy ground beef stroganoff is easy to make and full of savory rich flavors. The beef sauce is flavored with mushrooms, Dijon mustard, and sour cream. Serve it with tender egg noodles for a comforting weeknight dinner.

There’s a recipe for beef stroganoff in my cookbook that is a scaled-down version for one inspired by the first beef stroganoff I ever made, which happened to be in my 7th grade home economics class. It’s one of my favorite recipes in the book, but it’s definitely a fancier version of what I made all those years ago. And so, I’ve had it on my to-do list to make a version more aligned to the original – a bigger batch and simple ground beef stroganoff with mushrooms and egg noodles.

It’s family-friendly comfort food that I can pretty much eat on repeat all through the colder months. So, if you’re not in cozy dinner mode yet, be sure to tuck this one away for a cooler day. If you’re like me and ready to haul out the fuzzy layers for crisp fall days, it might just be perfect timing.


There are four main parts of this recipe: the noodles, the mushrooms, the beef, and the sauce. All together it takes about 35 minutes from start to finish which makes it a totally doable weeknight dinner. And it all starts with the noodles and mushrooms…


  • I like to get my water boiling for the noodles and, in the meantime, prep the mushrooms and get them ready for the pan. I used basic cremini mushrooms but you could substitute portabello mushrooms or little button mushrooms. You want them all to approximately the same size so I quartered the large ones and halved the smaller ones.
  • If you are mushroom averse or cooking for someone who is, you may want to consider finely chopping the mushrooms instead. That way they will cook down and will sort of disappear into the sauce instead of taking a starring role as bigger pieces. I love mushrooms and like big bites, but some don’t and I get it – finely chop them and proceed ahead.

  • Don’t forget the noodles – Once the water is boiling add your noodles and cook them according to the package directions and then drain them. In the time it takes to boil them you can cook the mushrooms.
  • Use a large skillet or pan and melt some butter in it over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and some salt and cook them, stirring occasionally until they’ve released their moisture and turn a golden brown. This will take about ten minutes unless you’ve finely chopped them in which case it may take less time. See all the brown bits on the bottom of the pan? ☝ You want that, too, because it will add lots of flavor to your sauce.


  • Once the mushrooms are cooked, transfer them to a bowl and set them aside. In the same pan, cook the ground beef with some chopped onion and garlic. I used grass-fed beef which is fairly lean so there is no need to drain off the excess fat. If you use a fattier beef you will want to drain the excess fat once the beef is cooked.
  • Sprinkle some flour over the top of the cooked beef and onions and stir until you can no longer see it. Add a splash of dry white wine and, as it simmers, stir and scrape up any browned bits off the bottom of the pan.
  • Turn up the heat and add beef stock and Dijon mustard and bring it all to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer it until the liquid starts to thicken, about five minutes or so.
  • Turn off the heat and add some sour cream. Stir until it’s incorporated and give the sauce a taste. If needed, add a bit more salt.
  • Add the noodles to the sauce in the pan and stir to coat them evenly with the sauce. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley and serve.

Happy comfort food cooking ❤
