Quick and Easy Beef Stroganoff

Sharing is caring!

On week nights, I often need something I can put together quickly for dinner! And it’s even better if I can make something that everyone loves. This quick and easy beef stroganoff recipe is truly quick and easy! And since it uses only one pan, there’s not a lot of mess to clean up. And it’s also super easy to make this recipe gluten free!


First, I washed, chopped, and sautéed my mushrooms. I like them in fairly large pieces, but you can chop them up smaller if your family likes them better that way. (Hint: If you have kids who don’t like mushrooms, leaving them in bigger pieces makes them easier to eat around.) Once the mushrooms are tender, set them aside in a bowl.

In the same pan that I used to cook my mushrooms, I browned my ground beef along with the onions and garlic. (Be sure to drain your ground beef after this step to keep your stroganoff from being too greasy.)

Next I added my spices, cornstarch, and beef broth.

Then I added my noodles (I used Tinkyada Brown Rice noodles since I eat gluten free, and yes, they are totally worth the price!!) and simmered until they were tender.

Once the noodles were tender and most of the liquid was absorbed, I added sour cream and the mushrooms I had set aside in step 1.

Then all I had to do was give it a gentle stir, and it was ready to eat! I was thrilled that everybody in the family loved this dish–even my pickiest eater! (I have one child who has autism, and she’s a super picky eater, and even she loved it!!)

This delicious, creamy beef stroganoff is easy to make in one pan, and it is so delicious! This recipe makes enough for a family of 4 or 5, so double it if you have a larger family or if you want leftovers.



1 tbsp olive oil

8 oz white button mushrooms (or whatever mushrooms you like)

2 tbsp butter

1/2 onion, diced

1 lb ground beef

2 tsp garlic powder

1 1/2 tbsp cornstarch (or you may use 3 tbsp flour)

1 tsp paprika

6 cups beef broth (use only 4 cups of broth if you use egg noodles)

1 1/2 tsp salt

3 cups Tinkyada Brown Rice Spirals (or you can use 4 cups of egg noodles)

1 cup sour cream


  1. Add olive oil to your pan over medium heat. Sautee mushrooms until tender–about 5 minutes. Then transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  2. In the same pan, add butter, ground beef, chopped onion, and garlic powder. Stir until the meat is brown and onions are tender.
  3. Drain excess fat from the pan and return pan to stove.
  4. Add cornstarch, paprika, salt, and beef broth. Stir as you bring to a boil.
  5. Add noodles, and bring to a boil again.
  6. Reduce heat to low, and simmer until noodles are tender and most of the liquid has absorbed. (For the Tinkyada noodles I used, this takes about 20 minutes. For egg noodles, it may only take about 8 or 10 minutes.)
  7. Once noodles are tender and most of the liquid has absorbed, return mushrooms to the pan and add sour cream.
  8. Stir gently to combine.


I used a little more sour cream for extra creamy stroganoff.

  1. Oh my gosh–this looks so delicious and comforting! I admit…I’m on a truly low carb diet but I pinned this for later!

  2. I have never made homemade stroganoff. We are not huge fans of mushrooms, but I can easily omit them. Thank you for sharing the recipe.
