Ground Beef Stroganoff

This shortcut version of homemade stroganoff is great for busy families!
Ground Beef Stroganoff comes together in 30 minutes and is a family favorite.

This post is sponsored by AE Dairy, but all opinions are my own.

I still remember many years ago after having our third baby a friend stopped by with dinner for us - and it was stroganoff. I had grown up eating stroganoff, but had never tackled it myself. That dinner was delicious for a handful of reasons (one being that I didn't have to make it) and two it was one that my whole family gobbled down!

That was 9 years ago.

Up until a couple weeks back I still had not made stroganoff. When brainstorming with my friends at AE Dairy about what to make for this month's partnership using their tasty yogurt, stroganoff came to mind almost instantly.

Historically a last minute swirl of sour cream goes into beef stroganoff but plain yogurt is a great alternative to sour cream so I knew I had to test it out.

AE Dairy agreed with me, so I got to work on a shortcut version of the classic Russian dish. Traditionally it would also be made with cubed steak, but in order to save on time and money I swapped that with ground beef.

I promise you THIS version is just as good.

What You'll Need to Make Ground Beef Stroganoff

  • Ground Beef
  • Mushrooms
  • Onion
  • Beef Stock
  • Egg Noodles
  • AE Dairy plain yogurt
  • Butter
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Flour
  • salt, pepper, garlic powder, parsley

A lot of these ingredients are pantry staples you most likely have on hand. If you are a busy parent, there is a good chance you'll have ground beef in the freezer too. I'm hoping by looking at this simple ingredient list you'll try this easy dinner with me!

This one pot dinner comes together fairly quick (close to 30 minutes) and makes the most incredible gravy like sauce to pour over hot egg noodles. The last ingredient you swirl into the sauce is the AE Dairy plain yogurt.

Like sour cream, it gives it a creamy and somewhat slightly tangy taste, bringing the whole sauce together right at the end. 

Between the seasoned ground beef, the mushrooms and onions, and the seasonings this dish is full of flavor!
