I don’t know about you, but during the hectic holiday season, I am always on the lookout for no-fuss dinner recipes that are also delicious. Pasta is always a favorite at our house, and lately I have been experimenting with recipes that can be made all in one skillet. Less dishes to wash is always a good thing, right?

How to make ground beef stroganoff:

1- Brown the ground beef with the onion, then drain.

2- Add the remaining ingredients except the sour cream.

3- After the liquid is cooked down, all you have to do is stir in the sour cream, heat through, and serve!

As it cooks, the pasta will soak up all that flavor from the broth, making the dish extra yummy.

This One Pot Ground Beef Stroganoff has become a new family favorite. In fact, I’ve made it three times already! Everyone in the family loves it. The last time I made it, I decided to try Barilla® Whole Grain Rotini. To be honest, I wasn’t sure how well it would be received with my kids.

Guess what? They didn’t even notice. The rotini made with 100% whole wheat was just as tasty as the classic Barilla pasta that I have been using for years. I will be switching over! I love that it has the extra fiber and nutrients from whole wheat, but still tastes amazing.

This is a hearty, comforting meal that everyone in my family enjoys. If there are any leftovers, they heat up just perfectly the next day!

I hope you’ll give this recipe a try. It might just become a favorite at your house as well!

My favorite products for making ground beef stroganoff:

12″ Non-Stick Skillet – I like one with two handles, and of course it needs a great glass lid.
Garlic Press – You can of course use dried garlic, but fresh gives this dish the best flavor.

Ground beef stroganoff made all in one pan.
Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 8 oz sliced button mushrooms (optional)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 8 oz Barilla Whole Wheat Rotini (about 3 cups dry pasta)
  • 3/4-1 cup sour cream (I used light)


Brown the ground beef and onion in a large skillet. Add mushrooms and cook 2-3 more minutes. Drain off any grease.

Stir in the garlic, paprika, pepper, flour, broth, and pasta. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low. Simmer uncovered, for 10-12 minutes, or till pasta is tender and most of the liquid is evaporated.

Add sour cream as desired. We like it with just 3/4 cup, but you can add more. Heat through and serve immediately.

  1. Bethany Oates says:

    Made this to night for the first time and added bell pepper since I had half of one left over I needed to use. I also switched the hamburger for ground Turkey. Delicious!

  2. I really enjoyed this! Easy to make and was plenty for my family! I used 12oz of pasta and added 1 cup of water to make 5 cups since there was 6 of us eating!

    • So glad you enjoyed it Tina! Good to know that it worked with the extra pasta. Great tip for making it stretch a little further!

  3. Needs more sauce and seasoning. Next time I won’t simmer as long

  4. Made this tonight, lets just say won’t be making it again.

    • Sorry to hear that you didn’t like it as much as my family did. I know I’m always disappointed when that happens to me, but I know everyone has different tastes.

  5. I love this recipe for easy weeknight meals. I use Barilla brand Super Greens pasta and add in some frozen spinach to simmer at the end. Thanks for sharing!
