***Recipe, text, and photos updated 02/21/2018***

I had to redo this one pot hamburger stroganoff for all of you.  It’s one that I have forgotten about but my kiddos really love this dish so I thought I would refresh it!  It’s a quick and easy meal (you can make it in 30 minutes!), filled with simple ingredients like ground beef, mushrooms, egg noodles, and has NO condensed soup!

So it’s a made from scratch meal that is kid friendly and made all in one pot!!  Now, that’s what I’m talking about, am I right?!

So, I have a story to tell you!  I almost couldn’t wait for my post today to tell all of you.

I took my 5 week old to the doctor’s office on Monday.  Yes, she is 5 weeks old already, how did this happen????

Anyway, when I was walking out of the clinic I saw someone run into the back of our van!!!!  I was like OH MY GOSH!!!!  Yes, that is what I really said.  I’m pretty G rated.

But it doesn’t stop there.  She backed up and then hit my van again and this time in the front.  She then backed up and ripped back the wheel well to the point I couldn’t open the driver’s door.  All the while I was trying to get her to stop with a car seat in hand but the girl wouldn’t listen, she just kept going.

So, then instead of parking next to me like she was trying to do in the first place, she moves over a spot then gets out and comes over to apologize and told me she thought she had enough room.  You THOUGHT you had enough room!!!!  The first time you hit me should have been the first indication you didn’t have enough room!!  So, now we are waiting on insurance to see what can be done and they are not in any hurry to fix the situation.

After all that craziness, I needed a super easy one pot meal the whole family would love!

After all of that craziness, this mama needed easy and this comfort food came to the rescue.  It’s also one of my family’s favorites too!  I usually make the noodles and sauce in two separate pans but I am all about cutting down on dishes and time.  So, I made a one pot meal out of this classic dish instead.  Anything to spare some dish washing!

About this One Pot Hamburger Stroganoff:

  • This is best enjoyed shortly after cooking it.  The leftovers aren’t the best as the noodles will continue to soak up the liquid and become a little mushy.  My kids will still eat it but I’m just letting you know.
  • If you like the sauce to be a little creamier up the sour cream to 1 cup.

Servings: 4 -5 servings

Author: Countryside Cravings
  • 8 ounces (230g) sliced baby portabella mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 3 cups (710ml) beef broth ( I like reduced sodium)
  • 3 cups (150g) uncooked egg noodles
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon beef bouillon (or 1 cube) (I like better than bullion brand)
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 2/3 cup (150g) sour cream (or more if you like it creamier)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a large skillet over medium heat cook the mushrooms and onion with the butter and olive oil until softened and mushrooms are lightly browned.  Add the ground beef and garlic and cook until beef is no longer pink (or until it is mostly cooked, it will continue to cook as it simmers). 

  2. Add the flour and stir to coat.  Add the broth, uncooked noodles, Worcestershire, beef bullion, and parsley.  Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until pasta is tender.  Stir occasionally to prevent sticking. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream.  Taste for salt and pepper and season accordingly.

    WHAT!??!??! Where do these crazies come from? I hope everything turns out ok! That’s terrible. I love that you made a staple of mine into a one pot meal!

      I know, right!! Thanks, Julie!!

    OMG. I cannot believe that! What a crazy person. I’m sorry that happened to you!

    Okay, this stroganoff looks amazing. I love stroganoff, but I always forget to buy the special meet. Ground beef/turkey, I always have! Trying it!

    • Malinda wrote:

      I know! Super crazy, just couldn’t believe she wouldn’t stop!! Stroganoff is one of our favorites too! 🙂

    This looks like the easiest stroganoff recipe ever. Thank you!

    • Malinda wrote:

      Why thank you, Uma!!

    So I just made this, for TEENAGERS and it went great! I simmered a little longer at the end to thicken it just a tad. Accidentally used low sodium broth, and went easy on the salt. Well, I noticed everyone added a little at dinner. No biggy, but just curious, how much salt do you put in?

    • Malinda wrote:

      I am so glad you liked it!!! It is one of my kids favorite meals too!! A lot of times I don’t like to give amounts on salt because everyone’s taste for salt is so different and my family isn’t big on it. 🙂 But if you are using low sodium broth I would start with at least 1/4 teaspoon of salt and then taste and add in more if needed. Hope that helps!

      • JESSE wrote:

        thanks! Yea, I’m NOT doing low sodium next time! Here’s a dumb question, is beef BROTH and STOCK the same thing? I was looking for Organic beef broth at the store, and they only had organic stock! Haha.. I’ll just give it a whirl.

        • Malinda wrote:

          No question is a dumb question! Broth is made from the juices of meat and stock is made from the bones. Feel free to use either one of them. Thanks for asking!!

  • Emily wrote:

    I love the idea of this favorite with simple ingredients in one pan. I just did my fort attempt but when I checked on the noodles to stir the milk looks totally curdled. Does it matter since I’ll be thickening anyway or do you have any thoughts about what might have gone awry? I double checked the exp date. Thanks!!

    • Malinda wrote:

      Thank you Emily and I am so sorry it isn’t turning out for you! Just a few questions- are you simmering or boiling? Make sure not to cook it longer than the 10 minutes or just until the noodles are tender. Overcooking or cooking at too high of a temperature can cause the milk to curdle. It will still taste fine, just look different. Hope that helps! Let me know how things turn out 🙂

      • Emily wrote:

        Definitely could have been too hot. I have an old stove so medium is sometimes not a reasonable medium 🙂 I decided to see it through after the sketchy milk moment and it totally came together. Delish and simple, just what I was hoping for. Thanks for a great addition to weeknight cooking!

        • Malinda wrote:

          I am so glad it worked out!! 🙂 Thanks, Emily!

  • Samantha wrote:

    Do I cook the noodles before adding them?

    • Malinda wrote:

      Nope, this is a one pot meal so everything gets cooked together! Less dishes that way! Hope you enjoy! 🙂

  • Linda wrote:

    Terribly disappointed! Too much liquid. Followed directions perfectly. NO CREAMY SAUCE! i hate wasting money – meat, mushrooms, broth.

    • Malinda wrote:

      I am sorry this didn’t turn out as you expected! You could add in a little more cornstarch mixed with a little water to thicken it a little more. Again sorry it didn’t turn out well for you.

  • Patti wrote:

    I was cooking hamburger to make a “cheaper” beef and noodles. Just found your recipe so Im going to make this instead. Already have potatoes peeled for mashed potatoes so hoping they go good together! Lol..Love anything involving mushrooms and sour cream:)

    • Malinda wrote:

      That’s great, I’m a sucker for dishes with mushrooms as well!! I hope you enjoyed!! 🙂

    Great recipe! I made this for my family tonight , it was a hit and very easy to make. I had all the ingredients at home already. I’ll be making this again. Thank you Malinda and Pinterest.

      Thank you so much!! I’m so glad you liked it!!

  • Ricki wrote:

    This recipe had no flavor whatsoever. You definitely need to add seasonings. I put in salt pepper and garlic to make it taste better

    • Malinda wrote:

      I am sorry you didn’t like the recipe! I am currently working on re-vamping this post so I will definitely add that to the recipe. Thanks!

    Glad to hear you and baby ok. Thank goodness you were not in the car or trying to strap yourself and baby in.

    • Malinda wrote:

      Thank you Carol! I just couldn’t believe she kept hitting my van!

  • Danielle Green wrote:

    I would say you remained pretty calm watching this unfold before your eyes! All while holding an infant carrier! Hamburger stroganoff makes the story even better!

    • Malinda wrote:

      Oh I was yelling at her to stop but she just kept going. Oh well, it’s in the past and everything was taken care of pretty quickly so that was nice. Thanks Danielle!

    I can’t believe that lady hit your van THREE TIMES! (My 15-year-old is learning to drive, and that’s something she might do, unfortunately!) My husband would love it if I made this recipe. He’s a big stroganoff fan!

    • Malinda wrote:

      I know, right!!! So glad it’s in the past and I don’t look forward to when my oldest starts learning to drive either!!

    Oh, this sounds like an amazing dinner for the whole family! I know we’d gobble this up in no time, and the fact that it’s made in one pan just makes it all the better!

      Thanks Erin!! 🙂

  • Sarah wrote:

    I love that this uses hamburger and NOT condensed soup. I think last time I made this recipe I subbed out the sour cream for Greek yogurt and it worked well. This time I want to cook the noodles separately and have leftovers. Should I just cut out the broth?

    • Malinda wrote:

      Hi, I am so glad you liked the stroganoff. Leave the broth but up the flour to 4 tablespoons and simmer until it thickens then remove from heat and stir in the sour cream or greek yogurt. That way you have plenty of stroganoff to put over your noodles. 🙂

    Made this last night, along with the Key lime fruit salad! Both were AMAZING! Rave reviews from the whole family (+2 guests)!

    Do you still have the original recipe you had posted? I never wrote it down and was going to make it for the fam tonight and I see you updated. If you do I’d love it. My fam loved it and I never wrote it down. 😬 I would just go back to my pins. Thanks

    • Malinda wrote:

      Hi Aspen!! I was able to find my original recipe!!

      1 pound lean ground beef
      1 small onion, chopped
      3 cloves garlic, minced
      2 cups sliced baby portabella mushrooms
      1½ cups beef broth
      1½ cups milk
      2 cups uncooked egg noodles
      1 teaspoon dried parsley
      2 teaspoons cornstarch
      ½ cup sour cream
      salt and pepper to taste

      In a large skillet brown the ground beef over medium heat along with the onion, garlic and mushrooms. Drain any grease. Add in the broth, milk, noodles and parsley. Simmer covered for 10 minutes.
      In a small bowl combine the cornstarch with just enough water to make it a liquid. Stir into stroganoff in the last 3 minutes of cooking. Remove from heat and stir in the sour cream.

    Hi Malinda, Very glad to know you & yourbaby are ok! And no trouble getting repairs.That lady had a whole lot of anger built up over something, not you! The first hit triggered all the anger she had built up. This is a classic picture of Road Rage! Just as often in parking lots as on the highway! Her rage took over that was why she kept it up! At least she didn’t run, her excuse was bogus, she was likely scared You would bring in the police. I hit is an accident, multiple hits would be a felony. Nice you didn’t have to have an Insurance hearing. — — Your Hamburger.Stroganoff sounds good & hearty! Did you know that Hamburger Helper had a Stroganoff flavor when they first came out? Can I-assume any ground meat will work? I will have to sub the dairy Soy Milk,& Soy yogurt, as I am allergic to dairy protein!

    • Malinda wrote:

      Thank you so much for your concern and I am so glad it’s in the past!!! Yes any ground meat should work just fine for this and I hope you enjoy!! Thanks again!!

    Made this last night and my husband and I both loved it. My husband kept going to the kitchen to steal bites. Very very good. Thanks
