Easy Hamburger Stroganoff
1 lb. ground beef, get the lean type so you don't have to drain fat off
1 small onion, chopped small
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced (optional)
1 small package mushrooms (button or crimini), sliced, optional and you can use less or more if you want - mushrooms will stretch the meat, especially if you use the criminis
1 can cream of mushroom soup
Chicken broth or you can use beef broth (I don't like the commercial beef broth personally, weird taste to me)
1/4 to 1/2 cup white wine (optional, we use if we have, otherwise don't)
Worchestershire sauce
1/2 cup sour cream
1 small package egg noodles

Start water for noodles. Once you are simmering the meat sauce, add salt (use a good bit, you want the water to be a little salty) and your noodles. Cook for minimum time recommended on package, cool and taste 1 noodle to make sure they are done, then drain remainder.

Brown ground beef in skillet over medium-high heat. When a little pink still remains, add onions, saute until onions are almost translucent, add in garlic and mushrooms and saute for a couples of minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Add in cream of mushroom soup, substituting chicken broth for the amount of water called for on the can and the wine if you are using. Add in 3-4 shakes of the Worchestershire sauce. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. You may need to add more liquid from time to time, you don't want it runny but not pasty either, you want a thick spaghetti sauce consistency. Taste and adjust seasonings (salt, pepper, worchestershire sauce). It should be just very, very slightly over-seasoned. Add in the sour cream, stir well, and allow to simmer for just a few minutes. You don't want too much heat or time once you add the sour cream cause it can curdle (will taste okay, just look funky). Serve over noodles.
I might try this. I usually buy the premade stroganoff because I don't want to get too involved with making this dish. Russian dressing for the side salad of course.

Smile many thanks for the welcome and recipes

wow, I didn't expect to have the responses I got so quickly. you all are amazing and very generous people with sharing ideas 'n recipes with me. tonight we are, or should I say my daughter is going to make FORGOTTEN CHICKEN as I'm laid up with an infection in my foot. I've got everything for it and have talked to her about it and I can't wait to report how it went and how it tasted.
maybe I don't give myself enough credit for the dishes I can already make, guess that comes from certain individuals complaining about them that makes me think I can't do much right in the kitchen. so far me 'n my girls have done ok with simple dishes and I'm slowly adding new simple recipes to our lil family cookbook. these are some dishes we've made that we enjoy eating...if any of you want the recipes I'd be happy to share them with you. I've made CHEESEBURGER CASSEROLE, MEATLOAF, WESTERN SURPRISE, SAUSAGE CRUMBLE, HONEYMUSTARD CHICKEN n POTATOES...those are a few of the dishes we've enjoyed sharing together. I guess we're simple eaters, not into big fancy meals very often moreso because of budget. I just found kraft.com and found some really easy dishes on there aswell so I can now add EASY MEATBALLS to my cookbook.
thanks again for all your help, guidance and suggestions...keep the "easy/simple" recipes comin and maybe in time...who knows I'll be more confident to ask for some different kinds of meal ideas.
getting more interested in cooking,
desperatecook aka Blee lol PS...I'm Canadian

It made me smile to open up this thread tonight and see that your daughter is making Forgotten Chicken. I hope it turns out well for you (I am sure it will). Sometimes simple is the way to go, and I really think that this dish is one of those simple and good meals. When my kids were teenagers we had this often. Sometimes I made it and sometimes the boys would make it when I had to work late. Enjoy!

well my daughter made it and I did have a laugh...i was on bedrest and not able to watch what she was doing...the only thing she did "wrong" was she read that it was to be made in a baking pan and she did it in a cookie sheet. when i hobbled down to eat, i looked at it and giggled. it did taste great but there was rice that didnt get cooked. i explained to her what baking pan meant and she said oh well then say glass baking dish not pan. we enjoyed the meal and said we'd definitely try doing it again soon!

I'm sorry for the missunderstanding with my recipe. I just typed it as it was written in the cookbook, but should have written it how I would have told my boys when they were that age. I usually use a 9x13 cake pan. Metal or glass work just fine. I can see where the recipe as written could confuse her. I hope she will try it again. I kind of stir the rice a little after pouring on the first bit of soup mixture too!

I think it's marvelous and so sweet that your daughter wants to cook and help take care of you! Please get well soon.
