I hate to say it, but I am a huge fan of Noodles & Company. My favorite dish is the Mushroom Stroganoff. So today I wanted to try to recreate it. So I went to the store and picked up 2 lbs of mushrooms. Luckily I had a huge pan as I totally underestimated how many mushrooms were in 2 lbs.

Served over Egg Noodles with a little freshly grated Parmesan cheese, this was a great meal.

Mushroom Stroganoff

  • 2 pounds white mushrooms, sliced into 1/4-inch thick slices
  • 3 tbs vegetable oil
  • 1 tbs butter
  • 1 onion, sliced thinly
  • 2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • Salt and ground pepper
  • 1 lb egg noodles
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

In a large pan, heat the oil and butter over medium high heat.  Slice the onion into thin strips and add to the pan.  Cook for 5-6 minutes until they are lightly browned.

Next add the sliced mushrooms and continue to cook in a covered pan for 6-8 more minutes.  Stirring occasionally.

Next add the beef broth (You can use vegetable broth if you want to make this a vegetarian dish) and simmer uncovered for 10 minutes or until the sauce starts to reduce and thicken.

Add the dijon mustard and garlic powder and cook for another minute or two.  Then remove the pan from the heat and stir in the sour cream.  Add salt and pepper.  Taste to adjust for seasoning.

In another pot bring 2 quarts of water to boil and cook the egg noodles.

    • Suba, It was 90% there. It needed something else. I am unsure what it is. Any thoughts?

      • It's probably the sherry. Noodles lists sherry as one of their ingredients for their mushroom stroganoff

  1. Man, that is simple genius. I mean everyone knows beef stroganoff is a great comfort food but I hadn't thought off it as a side dish like this. Noodles and Co? Is that a northern thing?

  2. Perhaps use fresh garlic and shallots instead of garlic powder….sherry is the key ingredient!

  3. Made this tonite and it was huge hit down to using a spatula to scrape out pan. Adjustments I made were to carmelize the onions, used two cloves of garlic instead of power and about a tablespoon or so of sherry at the end.
