Hamburger Stroganoff

Back when I first started this blog, I used to have a quote at the top that said, "If you are what you eat, I'm fast, cheap, and easy."  Well, this recipe fits all those qualities while still being a delicious, comforting, home cooked meal.  Kids love this stuff.  My daughter is going through a phase of severe pickiness, but she pounds down the ol' hamburger strogy.  Plus, it takes about 30 minutes to prepare, sometimes even less.  Ya gotta love that. 

Hamburger Stroganoff

1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
1 can (8 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces or 4-8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
1/4 cup butter (You can reduce this or leave it out if you are wanting to cut a few calories.)
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic or 1 clove garlic minced
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 can condensed cream of chicken soup
1/2 soup can water
1 cup sour cream (can be light)
cooked noodles or rice
snipped parsley (optional)

Brown ground beef with onion and mushrooms in the butter until onion is tender.  Stir in flour, salt, garlic, and pepper.  Cook 5 minutes stirring constantly.  Remove from heat.  Stir in soup and water.  Simmer covered for 10 minutes.  Stir in sour cream; heat through.  Serve over cooked noodles or rice.  Sprinkle with snipped parsley.
