What’s in Beef Stroganoff?

BEEF Instant Pot Stroganoff has juicy, seasoned beef (or frozen meatballs) as the base but it’s also a great way to use up steak or pork or chicken, even leftover roast stew meat!

SAUCE Short on time? Forget the sauce ingredients and simply use a can or two of Campbell’s cream of mushroom soup as the sauce base. Greek yogurt will give the dish the same creamy consistency as sour cream, but with a little extra tanginess and a healthy dose of probiotics!

MUSHROOMS Instead of canned mushrooms, use fresh by adding them to the pot and sauté them with ½ cup of water.

How to Make Instant Pot Ground Beef Stroganoff

  1. Cook ground beef and onion in preheated Instant Pot.
  2. Add mushrooms, onion soup mix, flour, beef base, garlic powder, and black pepper. Scrape the bottom of the Instant Pot while stirring.
  3. Add uncooked egg noodles and broth. Cook on high until noodles are tender. Let naturally release.
  4. Add sour cream and stir. Serve immediately. Optional garnish with grated parmesan cheese.

What to Serve with Instant Pot Stroganoff

Beef Stroganoff is a meal all on its own, but here are a few sides that round out the entrée! Add a thick slice of No Knead Bread with a smear of Honey Butter Recipe. Pair with a side of Parmesan Roasted Broccoli or simple Air Fryer Broccoli, and a crunchy side salad like Red Leaf Salad with Lemon Vinaigrette, and dinner is served!

Leftovers

Ground Beef Stroganoff tastes better the next day! Keep it in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days. Stir and reheat in the microwave before serving again. It’s easy to freeze Beef Stroganoff! Simply scoop into a zippered bag and label the date on the outside. Frozen  Stroganoff will be good for up to 8 weeks in the freezer.

PRO TIP: Thawed pasta will be soft and might break apart during reheating. Add freshly cooked pasta and dinner is served anew! The best way to thaw beef Stroganoff is to thaw it in the refrigerator, stir, and then reheat on the stove.

Tips & Tricks

  • Always scrape the bottom of the Instant Pot between stages of cooking any recipe to avoid food getting a “burn” message.

    1. Oh no Kathy! I’ve made it so many times as written, and I’ve never had a burn notice, so can’t say for sure why. Perhaps the bottom of your pot is not deglazed enough?
