If you have no idea what to make for dinner and just don’t feel like cooking then this Ground Beef Stroganoff should be in your rotation.

This really is a simple go to meal.   There is very little thinking involved.  It is so classic and so comforting and it is done in under 30 min ~ add a veggie and a salad and dinner is served!

Most ground beef stroganoff recipes call for that nasty cream of chemical soup.  This recipe does not have any creamed soups, which I love!

It all comes together in one pan beginning with browning the ground beef (chop meat for you East Coasters) with some onions and garlic.  The sauce is a simple mixture of beef broth milk and flour that thickens as it cooks.

I personally love the addition of mushrooms but they are a love or hate kind of food.  So please make substitutions according to your family.   My kids don’t like them so I made them separate from the sauce and just added them to my and husbands plates before serving.

    I can’t find the recipe 🙁 this is a family favorite and I usually click on the recipe from this link. But, for some reason I can’t seem to find it this time.

  2. This was excellent! I used the whole 8 oz block of cream cheese and added more salt, pepper, garlic than called for. I also used some dried parsley flakes. I’ll definitely be making it again. Thanks so much for creating wonderful recipes without the horrible cream soups!!!

  3. I made this on Saturday and it was a hit with the hubby. Due to some health issues, I make things extra saucy. So used only one pound of hamburger but kept all other ingredients the same. He loved it. I don’t like hamburger and noodles so I didn’t taste it.
