Ground Beef Stroganoff with Fresh Mushrooms

This post contains affiliate links. For more information, visit my disclosure page


Beef Stroganoff has always been a favorite of my family. I would mix in canned cream of mushroom soup. Since I am not using as many processed foods I don’t buy cream of mushroom soup anymore. Now I make it from scratch and boy it’s so much tastier. It’s really not that hard to make.

Here’s what you’ll need:

2 pounds ground beef from chuck

1 medium onion sliced thin

8 ounces fresh mushrooms

4 Tablespoon butter

4 Tablespoons flour

2 cups milk



1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1 cup sour cream

Brown ground chuck with sliced onion in a dutch oven.

Melt butter in a small sauce pan.

Blend in flour, salt and pepper.

Cook over low heat, stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbly.

Stir in milk. Heat until boiling, stirring constantly.

Boil and stir  1 minute. It will begin to thicken. Remove from heat.

Drain fat from beef. Return to dutch oven.

Stir in the white sauce.

Stir in mushrooms.

Stir in worcestershire sauce and sour cream.

Mix well and simmer on low for 10 – 15 minutes to heat through. Serve. We usually serve it over pasta.

    I make this recipe A LOT, and even my picky two year old loves it. The only thing I do differently is add am entire bottle of red cooking wine and need stock, then let everything simmer for abt an hour. It is fantastic!!

    1. Diane says:

      I’ll have to try it your way too. It sounds yummy. Thanks for stopping by

    It looks fabulous. However I am allergic to seafood and Worcestershire has anchovies. Do you know of any alternatives?

    1. Diane says:

      You can make it without the Worcestershire sauce. I have. It is still very good. I would add a bit more sea salt. Thanks for stopping by.

      You can get vegetarian Worchestershire Sauce at a health food store such as Whole Foods or similar.

    We love beef stroganoff and your recipe sounds delicious. I have never made it with ground beef before – it sounds like an excellent easy and frugal alternative to strips of fillet steak!

    I haven’t made stroganoff in years and years. I love the fact you made your own without using cream of mushroom soup. I am trying to cut down on processed foods also. I need to make this , I know my sweet hubby would love it:) Many Thanks my Friend, for sharing at Freedom Fridays.

  15. Claiming Our Space says:

    I like to make this with ground beef. My twist is using thin, round slices of potatoes. Later I started mixing it all together (cream-of-mushroom soup) into a soup and serving it with cornbread.

    1. Debbie says:

      I forgot to mention I season it with Oregano. Yummy!!!!

  18. -h (@taste-buds) says:

    I absolutely love beef stroganoff, and eerily enough, my family used to make it the same way. I will have to try this way of making it from scratch.


  19. Jason Ahlman says:

    Sounds great! Gonna try it in a couple days!

  20. The Hillbilly Housewife says:

    I’m so glad I found your recipe and got a chance to share it with my readers. So many of us are looking for ways to eliminate using packaged foods. It’s so easy to make a simple white sauce to replace canned soup, I don’t know why anyone would waste their money on cream of mushroom soup ever again. Excellent recipe and example of how we can cook from scratch with ease. Great site, too!

  21. Eva Mitton says:

    Wow, this looks just like Mom’s home made stroganoff. I am excited to try this and eliminate the canned soup sauce. Having high blood pressure – trying to avoid high salt content – so white sauce indicated here is something I will try for Happy Saturday – our comfort food day. Ty.
