I grew up on Hambuer Helper and cream of watever soup..I had no clue that Beef Stroganoff could be made at home without a The original recipe calls for steak but in this day and age hamburger is more in our price range. We love it because it's fancy at a more affordable price. Serve it along side a sald and garlic bread and you are set!

Beef Stroganoff..Serves 4
1 lb. Ground Beef
1 8ounce(1cup) container of Sour Cream
2 TB Flour
1/2 cup Water
2 tsp. Instant Beef Bouillon Granules
1/4 tsp. Pepper
2 TBL Butter or Margarine; Optional
1-1/2 cups Sliced Fresh Mushrooms
1/2 cup Onion; Chopped
1 Garlic Clove; Minced
Hot cooked Noodles or Rice

The butter in this recipe was to be used to brown the steak with and I left it out. In a bowl combine the sour cream and flour. Stir in water, bouillon, and pepper; Set Aside.

In a large skillet brown the beef,mushrooms and onions; Cook until done and drain any remaining fat. Stir sour cream mixture into the beef mixture and cook and stir until thick and bubbly. Cook and stir for 1 minute more. Serve over egg noodles or rice.
