One Pot Stroganoff Meatballs

It's back to school time and because of that the Iowa Beef Council and I wanted to give you an easy, family friendly, one pot dinner.

We succeeded!

One pot dinners are a Mom's best friend really. By the time the kids get home from school and you get home from work - everyone is famished and there is little patience on long, complicated dinners. They want to eat fast and now!

These meatballs fit the bill.

The Iowa Beef Council and I have worked together for over a year now. Finding partnerships that "just fit" is always such a welcome in the food blog venue. Growing up my family loved eating beef and that has continued with our family today.

As you probably remember, we purchase half of a beef {cow} once a year {or however long it lasts} so we always have it readily on hand in our freezer.  All cuts - ground beef, roasts, steaks, stew meat and more.

And ground beef is the STAR of this dish.

We all know that ground beef is incredibly great to have on hand and at the ready for easy dinners. It thaws quickly and can be made into a million different dishes.

But every now and then - we need a new favorite, right? My family loves ground beef on pizzas and in tacos, layered in lasagna and in my famous Crockpot Iowa Maid-rites - but now and then it's fun to bring a new dish to the table.

Now traditional stroganoff is made with cuts of beef {not ground beef}, but we wanted to change it up a bit and take those same flavors and put them into a meatball.

And wow oh wow, did this one pot stroganoff meatball turn out!

I used my Lodge dutch oven to cook these in but any stockpot or high rimmed skillet on your stovetop will do. Once the ground beef gets mixed with the egg, breadcrumbs, onion and seasonings they are easily rolled into meatballs, dusted with flour and sauteed until golden.

After that, they simmer and bubble in a cream of mushroom and sour cream sauce {with a pinch of one seasoning that MAKES the sauce} and finish cooking with the dutch oven lid on.

While finishing, I completely, 100% recommend cooking some egg noodles to eat these delicious meatballs with - either on the side or topped with the extra cream sauce. They accompany each other greatly!

I served these meatballs to my kids after their first day of school - which turned out to be a grand idea because they were hungry!

They gobbled them up.

And then promptly asked when we'd be having them again. Which will be soon! For many reasons. 1) they required minimal ingredients 2) they were super easy to make and 3) they are delicious!

Yield: 18 meatballs

Tasting just like traditional stroganoff, these meatballs are fun and easy! Clean up is also a breeze as just one pot is needed. Your family will love these.


For the Meatballs
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1/4 yellow onion, finely diced
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1/3 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 t garlic salt
  • 1 t pepper
  • 1/2 t celery salt
  • 1/2 cup flour, for dusting
For the Sauce
  • 1 10 oz can cream of mushroom soup
  • 3/4 cup of water
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 1 t salt
  • 1 t pepper


  1. In a large bowl gently combine the ground beef, beaten egg, breadcrumbs, onion and seasonings.
  2. In another bowl place in the flour.
  3. Heat a large stockpot or dutch oven to medium high heat and coat with cooking spray. When hot, gently form the ground beef mixture into 18 one-inch meatballs, roll them lightly in flour and place into the hot pot.
  4. Let the meatballs cook on all sides to a golden brown. This will take about 15 minutes. They will not be cooked all the way through. Remove the meatballs from the pot, set aside and drain off any grease.
  5. Add the cream of mushroom soup, water and seasonings to the pot, whisking together.  Gently fold in the sour cream. Add the meatballs back to the pot and bring the mixture to a boil. Once boiling, set to LOW, cover and let simmer for 25 minutes.
  6. While simmering cook egg noodles to serve along side the meatballs (this is optional), but the meatballs pair well with them and the extra sauce is great with noodles!
