Homemade Beef Stroganoff Hamburger Helper

  • Author: Kyndra Holley
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 6 servings 1x


  • 12 ounces dry pasta (I use this noodle)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (This is the brand I use) code kyndraholley for $5 off
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 6 ounces shiitake mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon granulated onion 
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper 
  • 1 cup beef stock 
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • OPTIONAL: 1 to 2 teaspoons corn starch or arrowroot (**see notes**)


  1. Cook the pasta as per the directions on the package, drain and set aside. 
  2. While the pasta is cooking, add the olive oil to a large skillet over medium-low heat. Once the oil is hot, add the onions to the pan and cook until soft and translucent. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. 
  3. Add the ground beef to the pan, breaking it up as it cooks. Once the ground beef is browned, drain any excess grease. 
  4. Add the Worcestershire sauce, mushrooms, salt, garlic, onion and paprika to the pan. Cook until the mushrooms are tender, about 6 minutes. 
  5. Add the beef stock and sour cream to the pan and mix until well combined. Bring to a slow boil and then reduce heat to simmer. Simmer until the sauce has thickened. Taste, and add more salt and pepper, if needed. 
  6. Add the cooked pasta to the pan and toss until evenly coated in the sauce. 


  • Storage: Store leftovers in the refrigerator in an airtight container for up to 5 days. 
  • Reheating: I recommend reheating this in the microwave or in a pan on the stovetop. 
  • Toppings: This stroganoff is delicious served with some finely grated parmesan and chopped fresh herbs like dill, parsley, and chives. 
  • Thickening the sauce: If you like a thicker sauce, add one to 2 teaspoons of cornstarch, arrowroot, or tapioca starch to thicken.
