Easy Beef Stroganoff

     Hey guys! Well here it is.. that yummy dinner idea I promised you! This is Beef Stroganoff.. at it's total easiest! This is my own version. I did a little bit of researching other recipes. There were so many ingredients in the other ones I looked at, they just seemed so complicated, that in the end, this is what I came up with! My family LOVED it, I LOVED it, so I'm hoping you will too! It has ground beef, minced garlic, onion, the usual mushroom soup and sour cream. I added some beef broth, and withheld the plain mushrooms. I am not a fan. If you are, then definatley add some! Well I cant talk long.. my little family is in the other room carving pumpkins as we speak so I better get back in there! Here is the recipe.. Let me know if you try it!

Easy Beef Stroganoff
Recipe By: Holly Lofthouse

8 oz extra wide egg noodles
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 cup beef broth
8 oz container of sour cream
1 (10 3/4 oz) can of cream of mushroom soup
2 tsp dried parsley

       Start by boiling your egg noodles as directed on their package. When done, drain and put back in the same pot and put the lid on to keep them warm and so they wont dry out.
       While the noodles are boiling, start browning your meat in a large skillet over medium high heat. Once cooked, drain the grease and then add the onion, garlic, salt & pepper. Give it a good stir. Then pour in the beef broth. Bring to a slight boil, then reduce heat and let simmer for 5-8 minutes.
       After it has simmered, add the sour cream and mushroom soup. Keep the temperature to medium heat and continue to stir often and bring the mixture back to a boil. Make sure mixture is thoroughly heated. Then add your dried parsley. Stir.
       Place your egg noodles on a plate, and then top with the beef mixture!   
                                             ENJOY :)

I've used a recipe very similar to this for years. My family absolutely loves it. I like to add a few dashes of Worchestershire Sauce to the mixture after adding the sour cream & cream soup. For thickness, I don't use beef broth. Instead, I either add beef bouillion granules or a packet of beefy mushroom dry soup mix to the meat after it browns.

I made this tonight and it was sooo yummy! I halved the recipe because I was cooking for one and added mushrooms back in because I basically put mushrooms in any and everything I cook. It still came out super yummy! After I added the garlic and onion, I cooked it a little more before adding the broth just to get some more flavor and to make sure the onions were cooked. Thanks for sharing!!

I was born in 1970... and this recipe has been a staple at my house growing up and at my house now. It's my kids favorite meal! Because I have had many years to make this, I have changed some things. I don't use the broth, and I use cream of chicken instead of mushroom, but sometimes I do add a can of mushrooms that I chop smaller (kids don't seem to freak out as much not seeing "whole" mushrooms! LOL). Just another alternate just in case you don't have broth or cream of mushroom on hand. (But I have had this recipe before, and it's really good too!)
