Ground Beef Stroganoff

Growing up my mom used to always make beef stroganoff because it was my brothers favorite meal.  There are times where I really crave it, however I am living on a college kid budget and can not afford the best meat.  I was looking online for variations and saw some with ground beef.  I used a little bit of my moms recipe and made my own.  I have to see this was much cheaper then hers, a completely different taste but it was AWESOME.  I will be sharing this with my mom and definitely be making this in the near future.


  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • 1.5 cups of  white onions chopped
  • 4 cloves of minced garlic
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 1.5-2 cups of beef broth
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 3 tablespoons of flour
  • 1 tablespoon of pepper
  • 1 box of your pasta of choice (I used bowtie noodles)

  1. Brown your ground beef and break into pieces
  2. Drain your ground beef  and any extra fat from pan and put aside
  3. In the same pan add your onions and  butter and saute until onions are tender (about 5 minutes)
  4. Add your garlic and sautee for 2 more minutes
  5. Add flour to the onions and mix well so there is no extra butter.
  6. Add your beef broth and whisk until it is not clumpy, let boil until slightly thick.
  7. Reduce your heat and add your sour cream, pepper and soup... mix well. Add more beef broth if the mixture becomes to thick.
  8. Add your ground beef back to the mixture and let sit for 5 minutes.
  9. Serve over your pasta!
