Poor Man’s Beef Stroganoff

I loved this dish as a kid–Beef Stroganoff!  It was one of my mom’s quick, just get something on the table meals.  This may not be one of the fanciest beef stroganoff recipes you can find, but I love it.  I enjoy this dish with some Aunt Nellies Harvard Beets and a salad with Italian Dressing(the Good Seasons Brand you shake up yourself).

Take it for a leftover lunch the next day!

Beef Stroganoff

1 pound of ground beef
1/2-1 diced onion
1 can of cream of mushroom soup
8 oz. sour cream
Salt and Pepper to taste
2-3 c. Egg Noodles

Cook onions and ground beef together. 
Crumble ground beef while cooking. 
Drain ground beef and onions.  
Replace ground beef and onion back into skillet and add salt and pepper to taste. 
Start boiling egg noodles. 
To the ground beef mixture add 1 can of cream of mushroom soup and stir together.
A couple of minutes before ready to serve add sour cream to ground beef mixture and stir in. 
Serve over egg noodles.

What did you pack today?  Today I packed egg salad–look for our recipes on egg salad coming in April.

    I packed a left over roast beef sandwich on homemade bread…not too bad if I do say so myself 😉

      My favorite sandwich is a left over cold roast beef sandwich! The homemade bread sounds good too.

    If I told my mom I authored this post, she’d cry April Fools! The word stroganoff needs a re-branding, I like the dish not the name and as a kid the word sent shivers down my spine.

    I shared my lunch on Twitter b/c VeganDiva always does

      You’re right it doesn’t have the best name. I’m not even sure how my mom got us to eat it. Probably because that was the only thing we were going to get to eat for supper. Good thing I liked it.

    Beef Stroganoff was one of my mom’s go to meals as well. She’d make it at least once a week and it was always a hit! Your version is giving me an instant craving for a big bowl- yum!

      Don’t you just crave some of the recipes you grew up with. I know I do. I have tried to get all my mom’s everyday meal recipes, so that whenever I do get a taste for one of them I can make it, but they always seem to taste better when mom make them. We’d love to see your mom’s beef stroganoff recipe.
