Comfort food at its best.

Hamburger Stroganoff

This is an easy family favorite and makes great leftovers.


  • 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup minced onion
  • 1 teaspoon (approx. 2 cloves) minced garlic
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 pound mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 can cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • chopped chives for garnish (optional)
  • wide egg noodles, cooked according to package directions


  1. In large skillet over medium-high heat, in hot butter or margarine, cook onion and garlic until golden, about 3 minutes. Stir in ground beef, mushrooms, flour, salt, pepper and paprika; cook, stirring often, until meat is browned.
  2. Stir in undiluted soup; heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low and simmer 10 minutes to blend flavors. Stir in sour cream and heat (do not boil); sprinkle with chives.
  3. Serve over egg noodles (if you run out of noodles, we’ve found that mashed potatoes, rice, and toast all make good substitutes for leftover stroganoff).
