Ground Beef Stroganoff

MY mother-in-law gave me this recipe 25 years ago. It's been a staple in my meal planning ever since because it's easy and takes little time to prepare. I usually serve it with green beans or another vegetable and a salad. -Marjorie Kriegh, Nampa, Idaho

    I made this recipe for my husband – he loved it! He’s pretty fussy and has fairly simple taste preferences in food. I did add a bit more Worcestershire. He gave it a 9.5 out of 10! I love that it was very simple to make.

    Chili sauce isn't the same as hot sauce. It is used in shrimp Louie's. Comes in a bottle and is similar to ketchup.

    It was delicious up until we added the sour cream. (We omitted the chili sauce.) Had to add a can of mushroom soup to make it less thick and less sour cream tasting.

    I'm gonna make this and add cream cheese to make more creamy and to dull out chili sauce! Very good!

    We loved this! It's not very saucy, but very yummy. I used Thai sweet chili sauce - it was great!

    RE: Need to add a little milk to make more of a sauce. I added more garlic. Replaced chili sauce for ketchup and chili powder to taste.

    Needed a little milk added to be creamy enough. Did not have chili sauce, so used ketchup and powdered dark chilis. Nice taste.
