Cream Of Mushroom Stroganoff

Cream of mushroom stroganoff is a delightful and indulgent dish that never fails to satisfy my craving for comfort food. The rich and creamy texture of the sauce paired with the earthy flavors of mushrooms creates a truly luxurious experience for the taste buds. Whether enjoyed on a cozy night in or served at a special gathering, this dish never disappoints.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 8 ounces white mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 ounces egg noodles, cooked according to package instructions
  • Fresh parsley for garnish


  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic, and cook until softened.
  2. Add the sliced mushrooms, paprika, and thyme to the skillet. Cook until the mushrooms are tender and any liquid released has evaporated.
  3. Pour in the vegetable broth and Worcestershire sauce. Allow the mixture to simmer for a few minutes.
  4. Reduce the heat to low, and stir in the sour cream until the sauce is smooth. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Serve the creamy mushroom sauce over the cooked egg noodles, and garnish with fresh parsley.

One of the things I love about this recipe is its versatility. I often add a splash of white wine to the mushroom mixture for an extra depth of flavor. Additionally, I sometimes substitute the sour cream with Greek yogurt to make it a bit lighter while still maintaining that creamy consistency.

My Mushroom Growing Tip

For those who enjoy a hands-on approach to cooking, consider growing your own mushrooms. I’ve found that cultivating my own supply of fresh, organic mushrooms adds an extra layer of satisfaction to this recipe. Oyster mushrooms are a great choice for this dish, and they can be grown indoors with the right conditions.


Cream of mushroom stroganoff is a timeless classic that never fails to impress. Its luscious texture and robust flavors make it a standout dish for any occasion. Whether you follow the recipe to the letter or add your own personal flair, this savory delight is sure to become a staple in your culinary repertoire.
