Typically when 5pm hits the clock, everyone in my family starts with the “What’s for dinner? ” questions and I look around in a daze like…do I have to make dinner for you all AGAIN. Keeping easy dinner recipes in my arsenal that everyone loves is a must and this beef stroganoff with pasta and mushrooms makes cooking a breeze.

Now I like to make my stroganoff with fresh sliced beef chuck roast, but you can easily substitute with 1 pound of ground beef if you prefer. Just precook up the ground beef, make the sauce separate and mix together for the same meal. 

In any case, put this easy beef stroganoff recipe in your  30 minutes or less dinners that most kids will eat. 

( I say most because some kids are picky even if you feed them pizza and fries, hang in there!)

Beef Stroganoff Tips

  1. I love beef chuck roast as the meat, but any lean (non-fatty) meats are perfect. You want to pick meat that gets tender versus toughens.
  2. You can skip the pasta noodles and serve over other options like green beans, mashed potatoes, or even a baked potato
  3. Mixing up the kind of pasta you choose to serve, changes the texture. 
  4. Try adding a packet of Ranch Dry Seasoning to the mixture for EXTRA flavor

Side Dishes for Beef Stroganoff

Growing up my mom always had a green side dish. Green beans and peas both make fantastic simple side dishes and are healthy veggies that complement the meal.
