How To Make Stroganoff with Ground Beef

Unlike my traditional Beef Stroganoff, this ground beef version does not require searing any bits of steak. Rather, we’re just browning the ground beef and adding a little flour at the end to help build our creamy sauce.

  • Start by sautéing the mushrooms in butter and olive oil until nice and tender. Remove the mushrooms and set aside for later.
  • Add the ground beef and diced onion to the pan and cook until no longer pink. Drain any fat and return to heat.
  • Sprinkle with the flour and paprika and cook just one minute until thickened, then splash in the dry sherry and scrape any browned bits off the bottom of the pan.
  • Gradually pour in the beef broth and bring to a simmer. Add in the dried egg noodles and cover, until the noodles are nice and tender.
  • Finally, stir in the sour cream, parsley and the reserved mushrooms and dinner is ready!

How To Make Stroganoff Sauce Creamy?

The secret ingredient that really takes this ground beef stroganoff recipe to the next level is the addition of sour cream right at the end.

If you’re not a fan of sour cream, try using plain greek yogurt. You can also try stirring in 4oz. of cream cheese, but the sauce might end up being a little more thick.

DAIRY FREE OPTION?Can’t have dairy? Try using a dairy-free sour cream substitute instead. You can also use margarine instead of butter when sautéing the mushrooms.
