Ground Beef Stroganoff

1/2 pound of ground beef
1 can (10.5 ounces) cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4-1/2 cup sour cream
salt and pepper to taste
pasta (1 handful for each serving. I generally use 5 handfuls and have leftovers.)

Brown ground beef. Drain on a paper towel-lined bowl to remove grease. Wipe grease out of skillet with a paper towel. Meanwhile boil 4-6 servings of your favorite dried pasta (elbow, egg noodles, penne or any medium sized pasta works great).

Pour soup, milk and garlic powder into skillet. Combine well. Cook over medium heat until sauce bubbles. Return ground beef to skillet. Stir well to combine meat and sauce. Just before serving add sour cream to taste (amount depends on how many you are serving and how health conscious you are.) = )

Drain pasta and add to meat sauce. Sprinkle plated servings with salt and freshly ground pepper to taste.

My Notes: Substitute rice for the pasta. Serve with salad or green beans.


  1. Hello! I am SO excited to find this blog. We have been going over our menus lately & decided that we need to make some changes & add variety. You mentioned in one of your posts that you want to add all of your recipes at some point, can I make some requests?

    I would love to know more about:
    Honey & Mustard Pork Loin
    Fake Lasagna
    Lemon Pepper Salmon
    Zesty Baked Salmon
    Meatloaf (we have yet to find a recipe that we like for this!)

    I fear that Mike will want to add Fried Squirrel to our menu just to get some variety! So maybe you can save me by listing some more yummy recipes (at your leisure of course). : )

  2. I'll try to get this up in a week or so.

    By the way, I have several recipes for squirrel, would you like to have them? = )

  3. I think I might give this stroganoff a try sometime. It looks so simple!

    Hope you have a great week!
