Easy, budget friendly, and absolutely delicious, meatballs stroganoff, in a creamy mushroom sauce served on top of egg noodles, is comfort food at it’s best!
Does it seem like Summer is rushing madly by? It does to me! We’ve had family members visiting for a large part of the month of July, and I am stunned that it’s already August and almost time for FALL. You know what that means, right? IT’S time for “MEATBALLS STROGANOFF”!!! (ok, totally lame transition, but work with me here, folks!)
Here’s the backstory. I thawed out some hamburger meat, fully intending to grill burgers. However, it was so hot outside I didn’t want myself or my hubby to have to grill and sweat at the same time.
I decided to cook something on the old stove top. THAT’S why I made these scrumptious meatballs. Now we can all sleep better tonight, knowing all the intricate details, right? Guess what? This dish is inexpensive to make, and the recipe makes 4-6 servings (depending on just how many meatballs one can eat in a serving)!

How To Make Meatballs Stroganoff
First thing you will need to do is mix up the ground beef, milk, dry bread crumbs, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Easy, right? Right!
Shape this mixture into meatballs. Brown them in a small amount of butter in a large skillet.
Brown the meatballs on all sides. Once they are brown all over transfer them out of the skillet to a plate while the stroganoff sauce is being made. Drain the grease out of the skillet, and give it a quick wash (the skillet, NOT the grease!).
Make The Stroganoff Sauce
To prepare the stroganoff sauce, cook the chopped onions, mushrooms, and paprika in a skillet with a bit of butter until tender.
Once the onions are tender, sprinkle the mixture with flour and stir to blend. Add the beef bouillon, salt and pepper to the skillet. Whisk it together to form a sauce.
Add The Meatballs to the Sauce
Return the meatballs to the sauce, and cover the skillet. Cook the meatballs stroganoff for 10-12 minutes on medium/low heat, until they’re completely heated through. Spoon the stroganoff sauce over the meatballs several times during this cooking process. The sauce will thicken slightly as it cooks.
While the meatballs stroganoff are cooking, combine the sour cream and Worcestershire sauce in a small bowl, and set aside.
Cook the Egg Noodles
Cook the egg noodles in a separate pan, according to the manufacturer’s directions. When egg noodles are fully cooked, drain them. Add a little butter and some chopped fresh dill to the noodles if you want (optional).
Add the blended sour cream/Worcestershire sauce to the meatballs stroganoff and stir, to fully combine. Continue to heat the meatballs stroganoff for a couple of minutes, so they are heated through. Be careful to not let the sauce come to a boil.
Serve the Meatballs Stroganoff
To serve, place the cooked and drained hot egg noodles onto individual plates. Top the noodles with the meatballs stroganoff. A serving size is anywhere from 2-4 meatballs, depending on how hungry you are!
Spoon the extra mushroom sauce over the top of the meatballs and noodles, then sprinkle the top of the meatballs with a bit of fresh or dried parsley.
We really love these “comfort food” meatballs stroganoff! Hope you will give ’em a try! I think you will like them, too. Have a great day!
