I’ve been making this savory, comfort-food dish for years. Easy Hamburger Stroganoff has actually been a long-time family favorite. It seems that I will go months and months without making it and then for some reason it comes to mind, again. I had some ground beef I needed to use up, today and I thought of this easy recipe.

I added a variation to this recipe that makes it more “beefy” than my original. I typically, make it with just cream of chicken soup and sour cream. Someone suggested that since it’s a beef recipe, i should try to “beef” it up. The variation in the recipe card, is the result. It was good, too, though I think my family still prefers the original. Choose the one your family likes best and fits what you have on hand. I hope it becomes one of your favorites.

Serve Easy Hamburger Stroganoff over mashed potatoes, rice or like us, egg noodles. It’s a great choice for busy weeknights, because it can be on the table in under 30 minutes! Enjoy, my friends!

How to Make Easy Hamburger Stroganoff

Easy Hamburger Stroganoff Ingredients

It doesn’t look like much, just looking at the individual ingredients, but Easy Hamburger Stroganoff may well be the simplest, hearty, comfort-food meal you ever make!

Start by browning your hamburger if you haven’t already done that. This is also a good time to start boiling noodles (or rice or potatoes).

Once the hamburger is browned and drained, put it back in the *skillet with the cream of mushroom soup, French onion soup, sour cream and bouillon.

Stir it all together and heat over medium heat until it is hot and bubbly. Serve over your favorite starchy side. I usually make noodles, but have also served it over mashed potatoes and over rice.

Easy Hamburger Stroganoff is a filling, comfort-food dish that’s incredibly easy to make. Put it in your meal rotation and your family will be excited whenever they see it come to the table!
