Way confusing as it says to add the meat and onions twice??
Hi, Jackie! If a person’s skillet isn’t large enough he or she may have to brown the meat in batches. After being cooked, the meat and the onions are removed so they don’t overcook while making the sauce, then they added back to the skillet toward the end to finish the dish. I hope this helps.
Can’t wait to make this! It looks fabulous! One question for you, Elise—if I leave out the mushrooms (I just don’t like them) should I add 1/2 lb more of the ground chuck? Thanks in advance!
Hi Divina, since mushrooms are an essential ingredient in stroganoff, I don’t know what to tell you about making this recipe without them. I would say experiment and see what works for you!
Made according to recipe instructions, but the sauce ended up being rather salty and the flavors didn’t come through. Not sure what you gain by removing onions and hamburger, if I did it again I would leave them in the pan to give the flavors a little more time to come together.
Hi Dylan, I remove the onions and ground meat so that there is more room to cook the mushrooms and deglaze the pan for the sauce. It’s a one pan meal, less clumsy if you remove the onions and hamburger. Of course you return them to the pot at the end, and all of the juices that came from cooking them are still in the pot! Since you salt to taste, I would just cut back on the salt you add next time.
Delicious recipe, but was missing something. I added a 1/2 tsp of dried dill and the taste just popped.
Wow this is really delicious! I put it over zucchini noodles (zoodles) instead of pasta. Definitely will make it again!
I made it last night and it was delicious! It also qualified for my Keto Diet as the ingredients were all good. (Left off the egg noodles.) I just wish there was nutrition information to go with it so that I can log it properly.
Just made this but used cottage cheese instead of sour creme as it was all I had. I, also was glad there was no “cream of” soup involved as I’m trying desperately to keep all pre-packaged / mass produced foods (read: junk) out of my diet. Everything was great EXCEPT the cottage cheese. So I picked out most of the lumps and it was fine. Can’t wait to try again with sour creme instead. Thanx for this recipe- YUM!
I have done this before also but blended up the cottage cheese to a smooth consistency. Just an idea for you possibly for future! Happy cooking :)
Wanted a recipe that did not require soup, but found this to be very dry, though the flavor was good. Will add broth to the left-overs.
We made this recipe tonight, exactly as directed, and LOVED LOVED LOVED it!! I was searching for a hamburger stroganoff recipe without the “cream of” factor. My husband and I are new “empty-nesters” and are trying to learn to cook with REAL food, cook for two, and not cook every night. This fits the bill perfectly. I can’t tell you how thrilled I was to see it freezes well, too. Definitely a keeper! Will most certainly be exploring your site for more! Thanks!!
Hello! Just popping in to thank you for this yummy recipe, which I’ve cooked twice now. I make a large pan and freeze it, and then re-heat in microwave. Comes out fab! Thanks again :)
I’m so glad you like it!
Made this dish last night. We loved it! The seasonings made it special. Thank you for your detailed instructions which helps a novice cook like me. Thank you!
I’m so glad you liked it Sara!
Try making the stroganoff using both regular cream of mushroom & one golden mushroom soup. It gives it a great color and just that added flavor.
I’ve been making hamburger stroganoff for many years. It was always one of my husbands favorite meals. I always serve the stroganoff on toast points because that was part of the original recipe. I use Pepperidge Farm thin sliced bread but it’s getting hard to find! Toast the bread and then cut each slice in quarters. It’s a nice change from noodles!
Hi Lynn, Pepperidge Farm really needs to make their thin sliced bread more available! I’ve needed it for several recipes (appetizers) and have the hardest time finding it in the stores here.
I added fresh, minced garlic and Worcestershire sauce. I probably needed some more seasoning. This recipe is similar to the one I used to make a lot years ago. That recipe had a bit of flour in it, but I prefer not to use it and it wasn’t missed. My ten month old had a homemade meal not long before I finished cooking it and eating a bowl myself, but she enjoyed some of the meat and noodles in addition to her own puréed meal:-)
I made this. It was alright; however, it was dry, had way to much sour cream and very little beef flavor. I modified it for the leftovers (so my husband would finish it for his work lunches) by adding beef broth to make more of a sauce and to add more beef flavor. Not bad, but STILL to much sour cream. Thanks for sharing this though. I do love your site. :)
Any suggesstions on how to make this dairy and soy free? Also another spice to add that isn’t paprika, or another nightshade? I have a bad nightshade allergy. Thanks!
What about subbing coconut aminos for soy, and cashew cream for the sour cream, and another herb…. someone suggested dill.
This sounds like a good recipe and I also enjoy using steak when we can aford it. I came up with a burger stroganoff a few years back. We cook the chopped onion with our meat, add cream of mushroom soup and the seacret ingridient in my version is 2 Tbs of A1 steak sauce. A quick and comforting meal any weeknight!
Thanks for the awesome recipe! (: My boyfriend thought it was going to be way too creamy but it surprised him and he loved it! It was super easy too; I will definitely make this again.
I just can’t thank you enough for your budget recipes. We found ourselves a little tight this week, so I just printed out a bunch of your budget recipes and relied on those for my Saturday shopping. I did this one here Saturday night and it was delicious. Tonight it is the easy black beans and rice which I have done many times before. Also will be doing the lemon chicken recipe which you marinate in a bag before. Budget recipes are always good especially in this economy. Thank you! Elise
