Ground Beef Stroganoff


How do you get classic beef stroganoff on the dinner table in under an hour? Use ground beef instead of cubed steak. Ground beef cooks in a fraction of the time but is just as delicious in a creamy sauce with mushrooms and served over whole-wheat noodles.

4 servings


  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 10-12 ounces mushrooms, sliced (3-3 1/2 cups)

  • 1 medium onion, chopped

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • ¼ teaspoon salt

  • ¼ teaspoon ground pepper

  • 1 pound lean ground beef

  • 1 ½ cups low-sodium beef broth, divided

  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour

  • ½ cup sour cream

  • 6 ounces whole-wheat egg noodles

  • Chopped parsley for garnish


  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, onion, garlic, salt and pepper; cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add beef and continue cooking, breaking it up with a wooden spoon, until no longer pink, about 5 minutes more. Add 1 cup broth and Worcestershire; bring to a boil. Whisk the remaining 1/2 cup broth and flour together in a small bowl. Add to the pan and cook, stirring, until thickened, about 1 minute longer. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream.

  2. Meanwhile, bring a large saucepan of water to a boil. Add noodles and cook according to package directions, about 8 minutes. Drain and serve with the stroganoff. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.


To make ahead: Prepare stroganoff through Step 1 and refrigerate for up to 2 days. Reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave.

Nutrition information is calculated by a registered dietitian using an ingredient database but should be considered an estimate.

* Daily Values (DVs) are the recommended amounts of nutrients to consume each day. Percent Daily Value (%DV) found on nutrition labels tells you how much a serving of a particular food or recipe contributes to each of those total recommended amounts. Per the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the daily value is based on a standard 2,000 calorie diet. Depending on your calorie needs or if you have a health condition, you may need more or less of particular nutrients. (For example, it’s recommended that people following a heart-healthy diet eat less sodium on a daily basis compared to those following a standard diet.)
