Hamburger Stroganoff Ingredients

There are a total of 7 ingredients in this entire recipe, and I would venture to guess that you already have most of them at your fingertips.  You will need:

The hamburger seasoning is the one that might not be readily available, however, there are plenty of substitutions that you could use!  One option (and the simplest) is to use regular seasoned salt.  You probably have something like this in your cupboard that you use on hamburgers.  Another option is to make your own Hamburger Seasoning from home.  To do this mix together the following ingredients:

  • Paprika (1 tablespoon)
  • Sea salt (1 1/4 teaspoon)
  • Onion powder (1/2 teaspoon)–Make your own homemade onion powder for this recipe!
  • Garlic powder (1/2 teaspoon)
  • Sugar  (1/2 teaspoon)
  • Ground black pepper (1/2 teaspoon)
  • Chili powder (1/4 teaspoon)

You can store this in an airtight container for about 6 months!

How to Make Easy Hamburger Stroganoff

This recipe has three primary steps, make the noodles, make the sauce, and finally serve!

Make the Noodles

This is one recipe where I will recommend just using the instructions on the box or bag.  Those will be helpful to make sure your temperature and timing are right.  As far as what type of noodle to go with, there are plenty of options that will work for you. We like to use medium-sized egg noodles.   You can use penne, a bow tie, or even a fettucine noodle.

Pro Tip:  Drizzle some olive oil on drained noodles and toss them a bit to keep them from sticking together while you finish cooking the sauce.

Make the Sauce

Start by browning the meat.  Once all of the pink is cooked off, you can season with the hamburger seasoning mix, cream of mushroom soup, and sour cream.  Cook for about 3-5 minute or until everything is cooked through.  If you feel like you want the sauce to be a little thinner you can add some additional sour cream, or even some milk to lighten it up.


For serving, I like to plate up the noodles and then top with the sauce and some chopped chives or parsley.  For pairing, make sure to whip up a batch of my Amish potato dinner rolls or my easy no-yeast breadsticks!

  1. Sounds easy and delicious but I would add some dill with the sour cream. Can the meat sauce be frozen?

  2. This is the first recipe I learned (dinner recipe) to feed my family when my mom was working late. I love it. Super easy however over time I have tweaked it depending on my mood or what is on hand. If I am in the mood for crunch, I add celery. I usually (almost always) add onions and mushrooms as part of the base recipe. On the days where I really want it to be different, I add in bacon crumbled up.

    It’s a great recipe! So many things you can do with it! Enjoy!
