Can I make this without egg noodles?

You can make this sauce with most pasta types if you don’t have/want egg noodles. The cooking time for the noodles to be tender may vary.

Can I make the sauce by itself?

Yes! To make this stroganoff sauce by itself simply don’t add the egg noodles and reduce the beef broth by half. Simmer until thick and serve over rice, potatoes, etc.

Can I make this without cream of mushroom soup?

You can substitute any condensed “cream of” soup but it may alter the final flavor slightly.

lean ground beef may not need to be drained after browning, higher fat percentage ground beef will need excess fat drained

  1. Recipe which I have used for 40yrs, delish warm meal on a cold winters night! If not interested in the egg noodles, serve over rice.

  2. THANK YOU 😊 I did make this, but it was so much of a hit with my family that I didn’t even get a chance to take a picture before it was gone 😋.

  3. I made this yesterday and my husband loved it but next time I make it I will cut back ingredients because it is too much for two people. I did add mushrooms & chopped onions but wish I had added the worchestershire sauce because it seemed to need a little more seasoning. It is a cheap & easy meal. Thank you for sharing.

  4. So good and easy! I’ve made this several times for my husband and myself. It’s enough for leftovers and it’s just as good, if not better, the next day!

  5. I’ve made this for years, BUT I bake in a 9”x13” casserole dish
    For 35” At 350 degrees. A family favorite 😻

  6. Hi, this recipe looks delicious. I saw no mention of draining the fat after browning the meat, is it a do or don’t? Thank you.

    1. Hi Patty, if you have a higher percent fat ground beef you will need to drain it, thank you for asking that question, I will make sure to clarify that in the recipe.

  7. We enjoyed this for lunch today and also for tomorrow. It is a lot of food. I used leftover gravy from a rouladen dish instead of the broth, added some onions and garlic. Seasoning was great from the gravy, no need to add a lot. This is a great gap filler! Thanks!

  8. My family loved this but I didn’t have egg noodles so just used macaroni and added 1 cup and 1 more cup broth, so good! My brother said it’s like homemade hamburger helper! Thank you for sharing absolutely wonderful!

  9. This is delicious and so, so easy. I realized too late that my 16 oz package of extra wide egg noodles was too much for the 4 cups of fluid, so I added another can of mushroom soup and another 4 cups of fluid. Turned out great. This is going into rotation. Thank you.

  10. I’ve made this quite a few times. It is so good. I did add onions and peppers and Worcestershire sauce. It’s a big hit. I like the fact that it is fast and easy to prepare.
