Craving all the flavors of a traditional beef stroganoff but dreading all the effort that goes into preparation and cleanup? Don't fret! This one-pot meal creates a delicious and creamy stroganoff in a fraction of the time of the classic dish, making it an ideal dinner for busy weeknights. Using ground beef as a replacement for traditional steak makes this recipe quick, easy and family friendly. For a lower-calorie version, substitute ground beef for another ground meat such as turkey or chicken and use low-fat sour cream.
Like most meals that can be created in one pot, the recipe below could be eaten right away but also stores well and provides delicious leftovers for the following night or two. If you're planning on having leftovers, cook the egg noodles separately from the rest of the dish and only top the noodles with stroganoff once you are ready to reheat and enjoy. Leaving noodles in the stroganoff too long will make them mushy.
