Simple Stroganoff April 22, 2011

Filed under: Beef,Pasta — WannaBe Chef @ 9:47 am

Happy Friday!  Wayne requested beef stroganoff this week, which is one of his typical requests.  It just so happened that I had this easy recipe saved in my stash, so I decided to give it a try.  It was sooo easy to make, and using hamburger instead of steak saved a lot of time (and money!).  We both loved it. 

Simple Hamburger Stroganoff
Slightly adapted from this recipe


  • 8-10 ounces medium-wide egg noodles (a little over half of the bag)
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 package fresh sliced mushrooms
  • 1 packet dry brown gravy mix
  • 1 pkg (8 oz) light cream cheese
  • 1 cup (8 oz) light sour cream
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1/2 cup skim milk


  1. Cook the noodles according to package directions, drain and set aside.
  2. Cook the hamburger and mushrooms together in a large skillet until meat is done and liquid has mostly evaporated.
  3. Stir in the cream cheese and gravy mix.  Work in the cream cheese until fully incorporated – it will take a minute or so.
  4. Stir in the sour cream, mushroom soup, and milk.  Mix to combine and bring temp back up to a simmer.
  5. Add the pasta and stir to combine.

      Haha, that’s random. I’ve never made this recipe before, but I’m sure I made him stroganoff back then because it’s one of the like 5 things he always wants.
