Oober Easy Beef Stroganoff!

I was watching some TV and saw a commercial that showed a glimpse of some pasta. I began to crave pasta but we had already had a typical pasta( noodles, traditional pasta sauce with some hamburger... nothing special) for lunch and I wanted something different.

I've never made Beef Stroganoff before... not even from a mix. I have a few bad memories from food as a kid because my mother, not the greatest cook in the world bless her heart, would make foods like Swedish Meat Balls and Beef Stroganoff from powder mixes and they would taste terrible so I have this hatred for certain foods now.

As I am putting this concoction together I realize it is Beef Stroganoff... Ryan was ecstatic because he loves cheap foods, as I call them, like macaroni & cheese and corned beef & cabbage.

The end result was awesome and I wish I had taken a picture but by the time I thought about it the food had already been devoured... it was that good.

Here is my super easy Beef Stroganoff recipe:

  • 1 Family size can of Cream of Mushroom soup
  • 2 lbs. Hamburger meat, browned and seasoned with dried onion
  • 1 16 oz. box of you favorite noodles

Boil noodles and set aside. I spray them with cooking spray so they dont turn into a large lump and then run a little bit of cool water on them so they do not turn into mush.

In a sauce pan pour in all of Cream of Mushroom soup mix and add water till it reaches the consistancy you would like, I added about 3/4 c to 1 c.

Add browned and drained hamburger to sauce mix until nice and warm, becareful not to scorce the sauce.

Add noodles to a bowl followed by sauce, stir, serve & enjoy!

Feeds aprox. 4 -6 people. Takes about 15 - 20 min to prepare and cook.

Try it and tell me what you think? Do you have an oober easy recipe you would like to share... I could use one or a few!

Sounds good. The other day I made a no brainer dinner. Chicken Quesedilla's. I grilled some chicken tenderloins with seasoning. Sliced them & put them on a tortilla in a hot pan. Dumped a ton of cheese on top & topped with another tortilla. Flip, cut into 4 pieces & enjoy with fresh guacamole, sour cream & salsa. You could put the salsa inside but I don't. No brainer- super easy & super cheap. Oh yeah & delicious!
