Ingredients & Variations

MUSHROOMS Any variety of mushrooms will do, it depends on how fancy you want the end result to be.

      • Pricier mushrooms like enoki, shiitake, porcinis, and chanterelles make for an excellent presentation.
      • Regular white button or ‘baby bellas’ that are more economical can be used as well.
      • Portobellos are large and meaty so slice them thinly.

You could even replace half the mushrooms with diced bell peppers or onions.

GROUND BEEF We love this recipe with ground beef, but it can easily be substituted for ground turkey, chicken, or pork. Just use whatever you have on hand.

NOODLES We add cooked egg noodles into this recipe, it’s the perfect time to use up those leftovers! You can replace the egg noodles with any pasta you have on hand. Try adding macaroni, rotini, or penne.

Instead of noodles, you can also serve this dish over a bed of rice or garlic mashed potatoes.

SAUCE For an extra creamy sauce we use both sour cream and cream of mushroom soup mixed with beef broth.

In a pinch, you can replace the sour cream with heavy cream, the soup with any “cream of” soup you have on hand, and even the beef broth with a vegetable or chicken broth.

No “cream of” soup? No problem! You can make your own, or replace it with a half-and-half combination of heavy whipping cream and chicken stock and a dash of salt.

How to Make Mushroom Stroganoff

Cooking this meal is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Saute beef with onion and garlic.
  2. Simmer with remaining ingredients (per recipe below), except sour cream and noodles.
  3. Gently stir in sour cream and serve over cooked pasta, simmering until heated through.

Serve with a slice of garlic bread to soak up every last drop!

Tips for the Best Creamy Stroganoff

For the best creamy sauce, gently simmer to thicken. If it gets too thick, slowly whisk in more broth or cream until it reaches your desired consistency.

To avoid the noodles over-cooking, pre-cook just until al dente. They will finish cooking when mixed into the creamy sauce.

If you will be eating this as leftovers, keep the noodles separate so they don’t get soggy in the fridge.


This recipe can easily be frozen. For best results when freezing, leave the noodles out and add to your dish as serving. This will prevent then from getting mushy when reheating!

To reheat, just heat up on the stovetop or microwave and add a little water to loosen it up! Refresh flavors with salt and pepper and add your cooked noodles.

  1. I substituted sour cream for Greek yogurt and beef for my leftover preseasoned Turkey taco meat.
    I wish mine would have been a bit thicker maybe should have simmered longer. Both my daughter and I liked it and we are pretty picky eaters. I didn’t notice the soup can taste which was a plus. I also didn’t add any additional seasoning as the meat was already seasoned I used and we had cream of mushroom with garlic.4 stars

  2. Made this today. Absolutely amazing! So quick and easy, it took less than 20 minutes to make. I will be making this over and over again! Thank you for the easy recipe that tastes delicious!5 stars

  3. This was a last minute supper decision and it turned out terrific. I didn’t have the sour cream so I used 5% cream with 1 tbsp of vinegar. Super easy and tasty!5 stars

  4. Try this with beefy mushroom soup instead of cream of mushroom and beef broth. Increase the sour cream for thickness. Delicious either way!4 stars

  5. Years ago, I discovered a very similar recipe, only it was titled “Poor Man’s Stroganoff”. Using the ground beef versus a pricier cut of beef. Love this and thanks for the reminder. Will have to make again soon.

  6. I just finished making this for dinner (kids are still chowing down) and this is an amazing and quick recipe. Next time I think I am going to use beef bullion or au jus mix for just a tad bit stronger beef flavor than the consume provides. But you have shown me a recipe I can make quick and easy and no one complains. Love it thank you

    1. Val, you might want to try a little Werchestershire (sp?) sauce in that for a little more flavor. A lot of stroganoff recipes call for it.
