One Pot Ground Beef Stroganoff Recipe

One of my SO’s favorite recipes is the Beef Stroganoff his Mother makes.  While I was unable to make it like his Mom does, I thought I would at least make him a version of it that would also help us use the 2 pounds of ground beef we had in the fridge.  He enjoyed it so I thought I would share the recipe.  I love any and all “One Pot” recipes;  I don’t know anyone who enjoys cleaning up a huge mess in the kitchen after cooking a meal.  All photo & recipe credits belong to Deborah from



3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided

8 oz crimini mushrooms, sliced

salt and pepper

½ cup diced onion

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 lb ground beef

2 teaspoons paprika

4 cups low sodium beef broth (all we had was regular broth- it worked just fine, it’s just not the healthy alternative)

8 oz dry rotini

½ cup sour cream

fresh parsley, for serving

  1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over medium heat in a pot or large skillet. Add the mushrooms and cook until they are tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, then remove from the pot into a bowl and set aside.
  2. Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in the same pot. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook until translucent, 4-5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, 30-60 seconds. Add the ground beef and continue to cook, breaking up the beef with a spoon as it cooks, until it is browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the paprika over the top and stir to combine.
  3. Pour in the beef broth and the pasta. Bring to a light boil then cover the pot. Continue to cook, stirring often, until the pasta is al dente, 17-20 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the mushrooms and sour cream.
  4. Serve topped with fresh parsley.

  1. This looks so easy! Read in a few places about 1 pot pasta but have never taken the jump. Cooking pasta separately is too ingrained still, but I do plan to try someday.

    1. I know what you mean! I was always apprehensive when it came to cooking pasta the way it is instructed in one pot meals because I too, was accustomed to cooking it separately (Italian meals are my favorite haha) but the more I try it, the more normal it becomes. Good luck with your “One Pot” attempts!
