Hamburger Stroganoff

This easy ground beef stroganoff makes a quick weeknight dinner. I like to serve it with a side salad for a complete meal. —Deb Helmer, Lynden, Washington

    My mom has been making this since I was a child and now I make it for my kids and soon they will be making it for their kids. Its comfort food at its tastiest and its so easy. I've never done the whole flour/broth part. We just brown the beef with the onions and fresh minced garlic, then add fresh sliced mushrooms, the soup and about 1/2 can of milk or water. Cook till bubbly and then add the sour cream. Then sit down and enjoy a creamy bowl delicious comfort. We serve it with rice or noodles and a side of veggies.

    I have been making something like this for almost 50 years. I only use 1 pound of meat and skip the broth and, since my daughter doesn't like them, also the mushrooms. I also use cream of chicken soup. It is a recipe that I carry around in my head now and have for years.

    DH made this with bison burger and fresh mushrooms. He also used a touch of Marsala wine. Delicious!!!

    My family enjoyed this easy and hearty dish, but I made a few modifications. First, I only used 1 lb. of ground beef. Second, I added milk, very gradually, with the soup, as it seemed way too thick and I used sliced, fresh mushrooms, which turned out delicious. I also added some beef bouillon granules for a richer flavor. This was a good weekday supper.

    Do not cook in an iron skillet on top of a gas stove. It evaporated the liquid much too quickly. I'll try it again, and try to tweak it.

    This was a very easy and good recipe. Something good to fix when time is limited.
