My "beef stroganoff on the cheap" is a little different"
Katie's Ground Beef Stroganoff
(Serves 4 to 6)
1 lb. lean ground beef (about 20% fat)
1 medium onion, finely chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 (10 1/2-oz.) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 (10 1/2-oz.) can condensed cream of chicken soup
1 (4-oz.) can mushroom stems and pieces, drained
Salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
1 cup sour cream
In a large skillet, brown ground beef with onion and garlic until meat is no longer pink. Drain. Add soups and mushrooms. Cook and stir on medium heat until mixture is heated through and just begins to bubble. Add salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat; stir in sour cream. Do not overheat or the sour cream will curdle. Serve immediately over hot, lightly-buttered noodles.
This has been a winner in my family for close to 40 years. Enjoy!
