Creamy mushroom sauce with ground beef and egg noodles.
Hamburger Helper™. You KNOW you’ve cooked with it before… I’m not ashamed to admit it! I also ate it probably once a week as a kid when we were busy running here and there. My favorites were lasagna, teriyaki rice and of course, stroganoff. So easy and it was so good! But one day I told myself that I would never make it again… something about those packets of powdered cream and seasonings made me rethink what I was serving to my family.
My hubby asked me years and years ago to make stoganoff like “from the box” and this recipe is what I came up with. It really doesn’t take more time than that box and has much more flavor too. Yes, this recipe is not fancy and that’s okay with me – my family likes it and I can get it to the table in under 30 minutes when I want to feed them a home-cooked meal before they go off to do their thing for the evening.
Easy Beef Stroganoff
- 1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained
- 1 can cream of mushroom soup
- 2 cups dry egg noodles, cooked per package directions
- ½ cup sour cream
- ¼ cup milk
- 4 tsp beef bouillon
- ½ tsp pepper
- 1 tsp parsley
- Cook egg noodles per package direction, drain and set aside.
- Brown and drain fat from ground beef.
- Stir in cream of mushroom soup, sour cream, milk, beef bouillon. Season with pepper and parsley.
- Toss in noodles and cook on medium heat until noodles are heated thru and sauce thickens, about 5 minutes.
- I’ll serve this with a side of sweet peas or corn, whichever we’re in the mood for.
- If you have the extra time, toss in some sliced, Cremini mushrooms for more flavor. Add them in with the noodles and cook until desired tenderness.
