Beef Stroganoff recipe with egg noodles on plate

quick & easy dinner

There are several recipes that I remember having ALL.THE.TIME as a kid. One of those happens to be this Beef Stroganoff recipe pictured above.

It’s a dinner recipe that we had all the time as a family and was changed up depending on the meat my mom used. Sometimes she used chuck roast, hamburger or steak. It varied every time, but every time we loved it!

It’s a very kid-friendly recipe that was well accepted since it was basically a yummy sauce, meat and pasta… and we all know that you can’t go wrong with those ingredients. 😉 Am I right?!

If you’re like me, always looking for simple but tasty recipes the whole family loves, then I suggest trying out this stroganoff recipe. It’s so flavorful and is sure to become a new go-to recipe for the fam!

How to Make Beef Stroganoff:

We love that this recipe is beyond simple and can simmer in the crock pot. Yes, you will need to make the noodles right before serving, but it’s so easy that anyone can make it. Here are the ingredients you’ll need…


  • canola oil
  • meat – roast, sirloin, hamburger (your meat of choice)
  • flour
  • beef broth
  • sour cream
  • egg noodles (We like to use the egg noodles since those are standard stroganoff noodles, but any work).
  • salt and pepper

Once ingredients are gathered, just follow these easy steps to make this slow cooker stroganoff…

BROWN MEAT. Add oil to a skillet on medium high heat. Toss meat with flour and salt and pepper to taste. Brown meat in hot oil, about 2 minutes per side.

Add meat and beef broth to crock pot and and let cook on LOW for 3-4 hours, stirring occasionally.

NOODLES. Cook egg noodles according to package directions.

SAUCE. Add sour cream to meat mixture and combine right before serving. Add noodles to mixture and combine or serve gravy meat over a bed of noodles. Garnish with parsley if desired.

We love the stroganoff sauce recipe these ingredients make. It’s creamy, flavorful and so delicious!

Can this stroganoff be made on the stove? Of course – just cook the meat and broth in a large pot for 30 minutes. Add sour cream and cooked noodles right before serving.

Why do you add the sour cream last? Sour cream contains natural acids which, when heated, causes the dairy proteins to curdle at a faster rate. You can keep this from happening by adding the sour cream at the end.

Variations and STORING TIPS

While this dish is delicious as it is sometimes it’s nice to change things up a little. Try some of these ideas:

  • Sautee mushrooms and onions with the meat before adding it to the crockpot
  • Serve over rice or mashed potatoes
  • Garnish with chives and parsley

As mentioned above, we also change out the meat we use for the dish – sometimes it’s hamburger, sometimes it’s roast. We also like to make our Chicken Stroganoff recipe, which is delicious too!

How to store and reheat stroganoff leftovers:

  • Fridge: store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3–4 days.
  • Freezer: store in an airtight freezer safe container for up to 3 months.
  • Reheat: If frozen, then thaw overnight. Reheat in a crockpot, stove top or in the microwave.

  1. Hello, this recipe looks delish and I’m already cooking it for dinner tonight. I always hate it when people ask stupid questions on cooking blogs because they didn’t read thoroughly but I didn’t see this….is the crock pot set to low or high. Thanks for the post. Can’t wait to dig in tonight after my son’s football practice! I’ve been looking for easy meals like this that I can walk away from and finish when we get back from football! Thanks!

  2. Oh my gosh, thanks for this. My mom makes beef stroganoff (all the time – it was the first thing she made for my dad when they were dating and he loves it) and I haven’t had it in forever!

    This recipe is on my families 6 week dinner plan rotation. All the kids love it! Its creamy and delicious. When I’m lazy, I just use hamburger meat and it tastes good too!

  4. 5 stars
    I used steak and put the sauce over rice instead of noodles. The sauce is so good I think it’ll work over all sorts of base ingredients.
    My husband really loved it so I’ll be making it again in the near future.

  5. 5 stars
    This is one of the best and easiest recipes that I have on file. It’s one that my family has always enjoyed. No worries about not pleasing everyone!

  6. 5 stars
    This was one of my favorite suppers when i was a kid. I’ve been looking for the perfect recipe, and this one was definitely it. Creamy, delicious, and super easy too. THank yoU!!!

  7. So I roasted an eye of round last night and am faced with what to do with what’s left. This recipe might work with the beef slices chopped up. Have your ER used eye of round in this?

  8. 5 stars
    This is exactly my recipe but I use stew meat! It’s already cut up and is so tender!! It’s my go to recipe if I’m having company!
