- Season ground beef chuck with salt and black pepper. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and spray lightly with cooking spray. If using a cast-iron skillet, you can skip this step. Add beef to the skillet and sear one side until it browns nicely, about 3-5 minutes.1.5 pounds ground chuck, ½ teaspoon kosher salt, ½ teaspoon black pepper
- Turn beef over and break it up slightly. I like to leave big chunks for my stroganoff.
- Add garlic, onions, and thyme. Saute until the beef cooks through and the onions soften, about 3-5 minutes.1 teaspoon garlic, 1 medium yellow onion, 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
- Remove the beef mixture from the skillet and set aside.
- Add butter to the skillet. Let it melt, then add 8 ounces sliced mushrooms and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Saute the mushrooms until they soften and release their juices.3 tablespoons unsalted butter, 8 oz. mushrooms
- Add all-purpose flour to the mushroom mixture in the skillet. Cook, stirring, for a minute or 2 to cook the flour.3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- Add white wine and scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan – that’s flavor! Then, add beef stock.½ cup dry white wine, 1.5 cups beef stock
- Bring to a boil and boil for about a minute. Once a minute is up, reduce the heat to low and add the beef back to the skillet. Cover and simmer on low heat while you prepare the noodles.
- Cook one package egg noodles according to package directions. When they are nearly done cooking (about 2-3 minutes from being done), mix sour cream into the beef mixture. Stir to combine.12 ounces wide egg noodles, ⅓ cup sour cream
- Give the beef mixture a taste and adjust seasonings to your liking. Add the noodles to the skillet and stir to combine.chives or parsley
- Make it in a cast-iron skillet: We recommend a 10″ cast iron skillet. A stainless steel skillet will work as well. Avoid using a non-stick skillet as you won’t get a good sear on the beef.
- Sear the beef: Searing the beef adds a nice crust for more flavor. Don’t skip this step!
- Use fresh mushrooms: Use fresh mushrooms for maximum flavor.
- Use beef stock, not broth: Beef stock will produce a deeper flavor, so use stock over broth.
