I don’t know what “real” stroganoff is, to tell the truth. I think it’s usually made with beef strips or chunks, not ground beef.

But I have to tell you, one of the things I remember loving as a kid was the stroganoff hamburger helper my dad would occasionally make, with an extra dollop of whipped cream on top.

But I don’t really have any desire to buy a box of hamburger helper… so I made my own version. Isn’t that funny? Homemade hamburger helper?

Faux-ganoff

I started browning about a pound of ground beef (extra lean) in a skillet. I sprinkled this liberally with Lawry’s Seasoned Salt and onion powder.

Meanwhile, I dumped a can of beef broth in a pot, filled the can with water, and dumped that in the pot. Then I dumped in some egg noodles… I didn’t want too much liquid to be left over when they were finished cooking, so I kind of crowded the pot.

Once the beef was cooked through, I glopped some cream of mushroom soup on top of it, and added a can of mushrooms (drained).

Then when the noodles were finished cooking, I poured the pot of noodles + broth mixture into the pan of beef.

Everything got stirred together really nicely, and three big glops of fat free sour cream and another stir later…

Faux-ganoff

Yum! Homemade fauxganoff. Super easy, pretty quick, and mighty good tasting.
