Dinner Tonight: Hamburger Stroganoff

This recipe comes from the cookbook I gave away last week, Flavors of Fall.  I’ve been making it for years because it’s simple, comforting and warms you up inside.  Served with a bagged Caesar salad, it’s dinner.
Shopping List
1 lb. ground beef (or use ground turkey or chicken)
1 onion, chopped
1/4 cup butter (Yes!  I almost always use EVOO but in this recipe, I use butter)
2 tablespoons of flour
S&P as needed for flavoring
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 (8 oz) can of mushrooms, drained (Andrew doesn’t like mushrooms, so I leave this out)
1 (10 oz) can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup sour cream (I use light)
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 (12 oz) package of cooked egg noodles (I use whole-wheat)
Saute ground beef and onion in skillet with butter.  Stir in flour, a dash or two of S&P, garlic powder and mushrooms.  Stir around frequently about 5 minutes.  Add soup; simmer 10 minutes.  Stir in sour cream and Worcestershire sauce; heat through (about 4 minutes).  Serve over cooked noodles.
I grabbed my camera to take a picture of my family enjoying their dinner when…
…the Cowboys scored with 2 seconds left in the game to tie things up.  (We never watch TV while we eat but if the Cowboys are on and about to tie the game…we watch and eat.)  Needless to say, my peeps were happy :).
Happy Dinner!

    Made this tonight and it was SO delicious! And best of all, my husband loved it even more than I did. Thanks for working so hard to share so many great recipes with us!

    I made this dish and it was really good. Just wondering if I should have drained the grease from the ground chuck? If not, then perhaps I just had a super greasy pack of beef. That does happen from time to time. Thanks for your great recipes.

    I never drain the grease because I think it adds flavor to the dish…but I also never use less than 90/10. Did you use an 80/20? If you are ever making something and it appears to have too much grease, go ahead and drain it. It's your call!

    Can you make the sauce a day or so ahead and then heat it up when you cook the noodles? I'm looking for some quick easy meals to take on vacation and wondered about making this before we leave and then just boiling noodles.

    I've never made this sauce in advance and reheated it but I have reheated the leftovers and it's very yummy! I'm sure the sauce would be great the next day over hot noodles!

    For the cream of mushroom soup, do you use regular/full fat or 98% fat free?

  • Mix and Match Mama January 21, 2015 at 10:29 am

    You can use any type of cream of mushroom soup you like. I typically stay away from "fat free" things but you can use either.

    Made this last night & it was amazing!! Can't wait for leftovers for lunch!

    I used this receipe to make the stroganoff for a baked potato bar.Put it in a crockpot to keep it warm. Everyone loved the mushrooms and it changed up the potato bar choices!

    Can I use cream of chicken? MY hubby is against anything with the word mushroom in it.. haha šŸ™‚
