Even if you don’t have steak, you can still enjoy the flavors of this traditional Russian dish. This easy, ground beef stroganoff recipe features a creamy, meaty sauce served over egg noodles, and it comes together in just 30 minutes. Plus, I’ve made it dairy free by swapping the sour cream for a plant-based alternative.


  • 1 12-ounce package egg noodles
  • 11.5 pounds ground beef
  • 1 sweet onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1/2 cup dairy free sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoon beef base (2 bouillon cubes)*
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley, for garnish
  • Salt & pepper, to taste

To make this with dairy free milk: replace sour cream with 1.5 cups dairy free milk + 1 tablespoon cornstarch


  1. Prepare noodles according to package directions. When they are cooked, drain and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown the beef, breaking it up into pieces as it cooks.
  3. Add the onions to the pan and sauté, stirring frequently, until translucent and soft – about 5 minutes.
  4. Sprinkle the flour over the beef and onion, stirring to evenly coat and allow the flour to absorb oil.
  5. Add the beef broth, sour cream, Dijon, Worcestershire, and beef bouillon to the pan. Stir until combined, and allow the sauce to simmer until thickened.
  6. Toss the noodles to coat evenly with the sauce. Adjust seasoning with salt & pepper and garnish with parsley before serving.

To make this with dairy free milk: Whisk dairy free milk and cornstarch together until smooth. Add it to the sauce instead of the sour cream and simmer until sauce is thick.


*Many bouillon cubes do contain dairy, so check labels. The equivalent is included for reference. I normally use a beef base which are dairy/whey free.
