Beef Stroganoff made easy!

Every two weeks, my family buys a large roll of ground beef. I always divide it up in Ziploc bags and store it in the freezer. I've gotten in the habit of making similar meals, trying a new variation once in a while. Tacos are my favorite, but I also love to make spaghetti and burgers. Needless to say, my family was getting tired of eating the same dishes every week.

A few months ago, my husband mentioned that he was craving beef and noodles and beef Stroganoff. Having grown up frequently eating bland egg noodles and beef chunks, I wasn't interested in the idea of eating beef and noodles—but I'd never had beef Stroganoff and I was willing to give it a try. I love to cook and I enjoy experimenting in the kitchen.

The result of that experimentation is the recipe below. It is absolutely delicious and is now one of my family's favorite meals. I'm happy to report that it made the cut into my rotation of ground beef dishes.

It's easy to whip up, and you can customize it with your family's favorite noodles. For the recipe below, I used rigatoni. However, I often use Amish noodles and they pair perfectly with this dish.

Ingredients needed

Ingredients needed


  • ground beef
  • any type of noodles (I used rigatoni, but Amish noodles are delicious, too!)
  • 1 large can cream of mushroom soup
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 1 1/8 teaspoons beef base
  • 1/2 cup milk


  1. In a pan, brown the ground beef. At the same time, in a separate pot, cook the noodles.
  2. Once the beef is browned, drain the grease from the pan and set the meat aside.
  3. Melt butter over medium heat and stir in flour. Keep stirring until well mixed.
  4. Pour in milk and stir until mixture is smooth.
  5. Stir in beef base and cream of mushroom soup. Mix well.
  6. Add sauce to ground beef over low to medium heat.
  7. Drain noodles.
  8. Serve noodles with a generous portion of meat and sauce poured on top. Enjoy!
