Hamburger Stroganoff

Hamburger Stroganoff is our version of the classic recipe that Mom used to make. The creamy and beefy flavors combine in just a few minutes to make a skillet-fancy recipe the gang is sure to love!

What You'll Need

  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) margarine
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium-sized onion, chopped (about cup)
  • 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 can (8 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • 1 can (10 ounces) cream of chicken soup
  • 1/2 pound egg noodles
  • 1 cup ( pint) low-fat sour cream

What to Do

  1. In a large skillet, melt the margarine over medium heat; cook the ground beef and onion until the meat is browned and the onion is tender, stirring occasionally.

  2. Stir in the flour, garlic powder, pepper, and mushrooms. Cook for 5 minutes, stirring constantly.

  3. Reduce the heat to low and stir in the soup; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

  4. Meanwhile, in a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the noodles to desired doneness; drain.

  5. Remove the meat mixture from the heat and stir in the sour cream. Serve over the hot noodles.


Note: For a lower-fat stroganoff, substitute ground turkey for the ground beef and plain nonfat yogurt for the sour cream, and replace the soup with a low-fat cream of chicken soup. To "spice up" either version, add 1 teaspoon crushed dried thyme, 1 teaspoon crushed dried sage and 1 teaspoon paprika when you add the garlic.
