My parents were visiting the other week and filled up our freezer with lots of meats and things to cook (since we just had a new baby), and I found a package of ground beef that needed to be used up. So along with all the noodles I found in the cabinet, I was able to pull together an easy beef stroganoff recipe! It is so tasty and creamy, a new favorite for our whole family - even the picky toddler who only wants hot dogs and mac and cheese! And the best part is that it can be all made in one pot - so it's super easy to clean up.
- 1 package ground beef (or turkey)
- 1 package mushrooms
- 1 small red onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- salt and pepper
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 1 carton beef broth (4 cups)
- 1 bag egg noodles (12 oz)
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil over medium heat in a large pot. Add the mushrooms and cook until they are tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and then remove from the pot and set aside.
- Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in the same pot. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper and cook until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for another minute.
- Add the ground beef and break it up as it cooks until it is browned and cooked through, about 5-6 minutes. Sprinkle paprika over the top and stir to combine.
- Pour in the beef broth and the pasta. Bring to a boil and then cover the pot. Continue to cook, stirring often, until the pasta is done, about 17-20 minutes.
- Turn off the heat and add the mushrooms and sour cream.
- Stir it up and chow down!
