Easy Beef Stroganoff

Years ago, I made Beef Stroganoff and I wasn't impressed.  I think I may have cleared my plate, but didn't really enjoy it.  Recipes like that are never made again.  Rarely do I consider giving another, similar recipe a try. 

When I linked my Gooey Butter Cake post to Food On Fridays with Ann, I saw that she posted a recipe for Easy Beef Stroganoff.  I looked at the ingredients, saw that I liked all of them (except for the mushrooms).  I added it to last week's menu plan! 

I'm so glad that I gave Beef Stroganoff another chance!  This recipe was a hit!  I even had seconds (and I've been laying off the seconds for the past few weeks)! 

I tried to stick as close to the original recipe  as possible, but made a couple of small changes like leaving out the mushrooms and using less meat.  I also used a mixture of ground beef and some zesty hot pork sausage because that's what we had in the freezer.  So, I guess this is really Beef and Pork Stroganoff.  Is there such a thing?  I guess there is...now!  :) 



Easy Beef Stroganoff

Ingredients:
  • 1 lb. lean ground beef
  • 1/2 lb. Bob Evan's Zesty Hot Sausage
  • 1 small onion
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 4 tsp. beef bouillon granules
  • 2 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 Tbs. tomato paste
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 4 Tbs. all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
Directions: 
  • In a large pot or dutch oven, over medium heat, brown and drain the meat. 
  • Add the onion, cook until tender. 
  • Season with pepper.
  • Disolve bouillon granules in hot water, then pour over the meat.
  • Add the Worcestershire sauce, garlic, tomato paste. 
  • Mix together the flour and water; add to pot. 
  • Stir until well combined. 
  • Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered for an hour.  Stirring often.  Adding water if needed. 
  • Stir in sour cream just before serving.
  • Serve over hot, buttered noodles.

I think this sounds great, I'm not a mushroom fan either.

This does sound and look delicious. I would only add the mushrooms if I had them. I do keep a can on my shelf for something like this.

Oh, how I love Beef Stroganoff! I will try your recipe for a change from my own. I'm glad you use ground beef, too, like me. I have such a hard time making meat strips not chewy! Thanks for sharing. :)
