Quick and EASY Meatball Stroganoff in just 30 minutes with a creamy sour cream mushroom gravy, egg noodles and meatballs, it’s the perfect weeknight meal!
Meatball Stroganoff is among the most flavorful and EASY pasta meals you’ll make during the week and it is completely cheese free and done in 30 minutes thanks to a quick and easy meatball shortcut! This recipe is an easy take on a frozen meatball stroganoff with an easy fresh creamy mushroom sauce.This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Cooked Perfect® Meatballs. All opinions are 100% mine.
When added to the sauce just after the sour cream, the Angus Beef Meatballs cook perfectly and plump up in less than the five minutes the sauce needs to thicken.
The amazing Angus Beef flavor works perfectly with the Worcestershire sauce, bold seasonings and flavorful beef stock. This Meatball Stroganoff tastes like it took you hours to make instead of the time it takes to boil some pasta!
Slow Cooker Meatball Stroganoff Directions:
- To make this Meatball Stroganoff in the slow cooker add all the ingredients except the pasta and flour to the slow cooker and cook on low for 4 hours.
- Instead of flour add two tablespoons of cornstarch to an equal amount of water and add it to the sauce.
- Cook on high for 30 minutes then add in the noodles, let cook five minutes and serve.
Many meatball stroganoffs with cream of mushroom soup are touted as quick weeknight meals. This meatball stroganoff is made without cream of mushroom soup but it you have a favorite recipe you like that calls for Cream of Mushroom Soup you can use my homemade version.
Cooked Perfect has many different types of meatballs you can use to save time cooking during this busy back-to-school season and beyond. We especially like to use the Cooked Perfect Italian Style Meatballs if we’re making a simple pasta in meat sauce (they also offer a gluten free version of their Italian Style Meatballs).
We also like to change things up from time to time and swap in their Turkey Meatballs in a few different recipes for a different flavor and feel. They have a wonderful flavor, are lower in fat and are perfect to swap into anything you’d use chicken breast for (similar cook times in a pan).
In fact the turkey meatballs would be AMAZING with either the Ground Orange Chicken or Ground Kung Pao Chicken sauces. You could serve them over a bowl of steamed rice and vegetables and dinner would be on the table in just 20 minutes. Head over to Cooked Perfect’s website to Browse more meatball recipes.

SO good! Family loved it
Made this tonight… it was great. I used meatballs I made and had frozen, they were raw, but cooked quickly in the hot sauce. I also added frozen peas for color……. Will make again.
Are you using 3 cups of the beef stock paste? It seems like quite a lot, I have an 8 oz jar.
3 cups of liquid, not paste. Sorry for any confusion.
Made it tonight and the family loved it. Didn’t have egg noodles and subbed broken lasagna noodles. Very good. I think it would be tasty over rice or even mashed potatoes. A keeper.
This was fabulous! Hubby loved it too. Will make this again! Thank you for sharing.
This is a winner!!! My daughter wanted hamburger helper beef stroganoff and I was like….. We can do better than that right!?! Well,,,, we did!! Your recipe hands down is so much better!! Easy and full of flavor!! Thank you for posting it. 5 ??????
Thank you so much Jessica1 i am so happy to hear you enjoyed it!
Easy recipe and very tasty.
This recipe is a staple in our house. I’m vegetarian so I use vegetable stock and vegetarian ‘meatballs’. This is one of the vegetarian meals I make that my kids do not complain about!
I’m so excited to try this in the slow cooker. Do I cook the mushrooms before putting them in? Do I cook the pasta before I add them in the last 5 minutes? Thank you!
If you add to the slow cooker don’t cook mushrooms ahead. Add in cooked pasta when you are ready to serve. There’s a great beef stroganoff pot roast on the site too, made in the slow cooker, I would try that one. It is one of my favorite recipes.
Really good. A nice thin sauce that mashes for a lighter meal than the type I’m used too with cream of mushroom soup and a whole container of sour cream. I added some garlic to my mushrooms because I love garlic, but everything else was true to recipe.
The addition of garlic is never a bad idea!
Made this stroganoff for my 16 year old twin grandsons and they loved it. It was easy and very tasty and filling. Will definitely make this again.
Thanks for the 5 stars, Jeri. I’m so glad you enjoyed it.
Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe! I rarely make recipes that turn out so well the first time I try them. The entire family agreed that this one is a keeper!
Yay! Thanks for coming back to let me know, Candee.
Are we supposed to simmer the broth and frozen meatballs or bring to boil?
Keep the temperature on medium high while on the stove. I hope you enjoy it!
Very easy, delicious. I don’t like recipes that use cream of mushroom soup, too many scary ingredients.
Thanks for the 5 stars, Susan.
Comfort food for a cool evening. Husband loved it! Thanks for the recipe,will make again.
So glad it was a hit! Thanks for the 5 stars.
You said you used a thickened beef stock/paste – is this the Better than Bouillon? Or did you just add this to the beef stock?
Can’t wait to make this!
Yes, Better Than Bouillon Beef base. Enjoy!
Got use of my leftover meatballs. Delicious & easy recipe. Best of all quick, I followed directions almost exact & came out very good for my 1st time with this recipe. I’m not much of a cook & this was great!
So glad you enjoyed it. I appreciate the 5 stars.
I added some nutmeg and a bit of paprika – good for both flavour and colour. Also used more mushrooms than indicated, simply because I like them.
Oh my heck,
I googled “what can I do with these meatballs” and it brought me to your site. I mad this dinner on the fly and my family loved it!!!!
Thanks for posting this winner!
Yay!! Google for the WIN!! So glad you all loved it.
I’m thinking about making this for a friend but would need to freeze it. Do you think this would freeze well?
How thoughtful! Yes, this would freeze perfectly.
I bought a bag of frozen meatballs. The package says they are fully cooked. Do I add them in while they’re still frozen? Or cook them in the oven first?
I just throw mine in frozen though you may need to cook them longer. Enjoy!
Am I supposed to heat the meatballs prior to making this? The bag says to cook for 25 minutes in sauce… I already have the egg noodles cooking! 🙁
Go ahead and make them according to the package directions then. 🙂
Ok, so I’ve made this at least 4-5 times now because I and my Boyfriend LOVE IT! He especially does – he’s literally eaten this for breakfast, lunch and dinner lol I would make it more often if not for it being his weakness. I don’t want him packing on the pounds ??
Thank you so much for this quick and tasty recipe!
Yay, this just make my day!! I’m so glad you both are enjoying it!
Awesome recipe & pretty dang easy! Very flavorful without a heap of ingredients & a big hit with the family.
I’m so glad you guys enjoyed it! Thanks for coming back to let me know!
Just made this for dinner. So yummy! And the kids enjoyed it, mushrooms and all!
Thanks for dropping by to let me know! I’m so glad you guys enjoyed it!
It says to add all the ingredients to the crock pot if you are making it that way, except for the pasta and flour… even the sour cream?? Seems like you would add that last minute.
You can actually put the sour cream in at the beginning but if you’re looking to get more of the “tang” from it, add it in at the end. Either way works. Enjoy!
Also, if we wanted to make our own meatballs… would it just be beef and seasoning and roll into balls and just cook on stove top? Would I cover the pan to make sure the inside is done also?
Yes, that works perfectly. I also have a recipe for Easy Homemade Meatballs https://dinnerthendessert.com/easy-homemade-meatballs/ on the site that you could also use.
What size pan did you use?
I used a 10 inch cast iron skillet for this recipe.
I think this dish is the ultimate comfort food and I love how you used frozen meatballs in your recipe. I keep a bag of frozen meatballs in my freezer for easy meals, I’ll be adding this recipe to my meal plan.
Thanks Joanie! Prepping ahead on certain days can really be a life saver on others!
I love when dinner can be quick, easy, and delicious!
Me too, Krista! Enjoy!!
This looks absolutely DELICIOUS!! Thank you for this!
This looks so good, and comforting! Just told my husband that I need to make this soon! Very convenient, too!
Oh My God! Such a great idea to use meatballs! I love Stroganoff so much!
This may be a dumb question. I’m using froze meatballs. Do I need to thaw them before hand?
Sabrina, this is it ! Known with a little twist ! Will do ! Thank you !
We LOVE Cooked Perfect meatballs, and this is one recipe I have to try!
I’d love to know what you think after trying!
I am loving this spin on stroganoff! My kiddos will love it as they are big fans of meatballs!
Definitely a very kid friendly meal!
