Beef Stroganoff on the cheap

I make this all the time and it is too easy and really inexpensive.

This makes enough for 2 people.

1 can of Campbell's French Onion Soup
1 16 oz container of sour cream
1/2 lb ground beef
salt and pepper
cooked egg noodles (or whatever noodle you have available)

Cook the ground beef. Add the soup and heat. Add the sour cream, and salt and pepper to taste. Pour over the cooked egg noodles. YUM!

If you like a thicker sauce just put a little corn starch water in to thicken.

Try it with cream of mushroom soup sometime instead of the onion, fry some onion with the ground beef.

I agree, Jeff - Mom always made it with cream of mushroom soup.

+1 for the Cream of Mushroom Soup instead of the French Onion Soup, that's how my mom did it. I like to add a little bit of onion when cooking the meat also.

I agree Beef Stroganoff has to have mushroom soup to actually be called Beef Stroganoff .

What brand of cream of mushroom soup do you use for your recipe and is it condensed?

Cambell's. There is no other soup as far as I've ever been concerned. I have never, will never, use store brands.

I use condensed - and brand doesn't really matter. I grew up on Campbell's soup but I have no problem using a store brand if it is good. I don't really notice any difference using Great Value (Wal-Mart brand) which runs $0.50-$0.89 vs Campbell's which runs about $1.69. I also use Wal-Mart milk, Wal-Mart butter, Wal-Mart sour cream and Wal-Mart ground beef.
