Easy Ground Beef Stroganoff Recipe
Family friendly meals are at the top of our dinner menu. I'm feeding teenage boys now, and they can be impossible to fill up some days. Due to this, I often resort to making dishes that can be made for my hungry eaters but, keep my grocery budget intact as well. When steak prices soar, ground beef can be a cost effective option.
How to Make the Best Ground Beef Stroganoff Recipe
You'll love this easy ground beef stroganoff recipe for a kid friendly supper any night of the week. It could also work with ground chicken or ground turkey.
- What you'll need to make this easy Ground Beef Stroganoff recipe: Lean ground beef, diced onion, garlic, all purpose flour, beef stock, salt, Worcestershire sauce, steak seasoning, sour cream, portabella mushrooms and cooked egg noodles for serving.
- It's best to use a leaner ground beef for this recipe so it won't release too much fat. When cooking it, drain any excess from the pan before adding the remaining ingredients.
- Stroganoff is traditionally served over egg noodles and this ground beef variation is no exception. That said, we also love this equally when ladled over buttered rice or mashed potatoes. Cook the noodles while the beef simmers and you'll have dinner ready in no time flat.
- There are so few ingredients needed to make this dish, make sure you choose a flavor packed steak seasoning for the most tasty end result. Steak seasoning generally has a generous amount of black pepper, granulated garlic and salt with other ingredients depending on the brand. You can adjust the amounts of salt and include additional black pepper at your discretion.
- You can easily adjust the thickness of the sauce by adding more flour dissolved in broth in small amounts. Likewise, you can thin the sauce further by adding more broth.
- Garnish the top with chopped parsley or fresh dill for color.
- You can store beef stroganoff in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. You can freeze it for up to one month. Store sauce and noodles separately.
- Reheat leftovers gently in the microwave or in a saucepan over medium heat.
