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 is so quick to make. 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…

INGREDIENTS:

  • canola oil
  • meat – roast, sirloin, hamburger (your meat of choice)
  • flour
  • beef broth
  • sour cream
  • whipping 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 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 broth and Worcestershire sauce and let simmer for 15 minutes.

NOODLES. Cook egg noodles according to package directions. Drain when done.

SAUCE. Add sour cream, whipping cream and garlic salt to meat mixture and stir. 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 in the slow cooker? Of course – just cook the meat and add to the slow cooker with the broth and Worcestershire sauce and cook on LOW for 3-4 hours, stirring occasionally. Add sour cream and whipping cream and stir. Serve over cooked noodles right before serving or toss noodles into the meat sauce.

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 
  • 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.
