Beef Stroganoff

Beef Stroganoff

This is my husband's favourite dish! He asks me to make it every year for his birthday dinner...I could make him absolutely anything and this is what he picks lol. I actually find quite hilarious because it's so easy to make it's almost embarrassing to call it a recipe, but here it goes:


1lb ground beef

½ small onion (finely diced)

½ green or red pepper (finely diced)

2cloves garlic (minced)

4 mushrooms (sliced)

1tbsp worcestershire sauce

1tsp dried beef stock (low salt)

1tsp horseradish (optional)

salt and pepper to taste

1can cream of mushroom soup

1/2c milk

1package cooked broad egg noodles

(Follow the directions on the package)

For Garnish:

2 green onions (thinly sliced)

1 handful of parsley (chopped)

1/2c sour cream

Put the first 9 ingredients in a medium sized saucepot on medium heat. Brown the ground beef stirring every once in a while until it is a rich brown color with no sign of pink. Now would be a good time to start boiling the water to cook the noodles. Add the can of mushroom soup and the milk. Stir until smooth. Taste a little to see if it needs any more salt or pepper. Turn off the burner and cover with a lid. Let sit until your egg noodles are ready.

*To serve place some noodles in a bowl and top off with a spoonful of sour cream. Sprinkle with some parsley and green onions and you are done.
