“Easy and delicious stroganoff recipe using ground beef instead of beef cubes. You can also cook this in a slow cooker. Serve over hot buttered noodles, add a loaf of bread, and you have a great meal. Wonderful on those cold, winter nights.”

I am only giving this a 4 because I tweaked it to our tastes. I added no water, because it seemed like it might be too runny and skipped the salt and reduced the bouillon. I browned the hamburger, onions and 1 heaping TBSP of minced garlic (jar found in produce section) in a fry pan. I added pepper to my taste. (a lot more than called for) I then drained and put in my crock along with 1 lg. can of mushroom soup (instead of mushrooms)and 1 sm. can tomato sauce, (instead of paste) and 4 bouillon cubes. I also added some paprika. I cooked pasta shells and mixed it in with the stuff in the crock after it was finished cooking on low. (meat mix cooked for 3 hrs on low) I would have used egg noodles, but realized I was out. This was GREAT!!!!!!!!! I don't usually like this type of meal, but even I loved it this time. Hubby loves this stuff. I served with grean beans and garlic bread. The mushroom soup made this soooo creamy and yummy. No need for added milk or sour cream.



I picked this recipe because it didn't call for sour cream.. which I didn't have on hand. I added Worcestershire's from another review, and added real mushrooms instead of canned. I didn't have tomato paste, so I used a small can of tomato sauce.. Towards the end I thought it needed something else, so I added a can of cream of mushroom... and threw in egg noodles that were cooked 3/4 of the way through. I let it simmer lightly while I ran to the store for about 20 minutes. I came back, it was all gone. My husband had dug into it and thought it was sooooooooo good. He wasn't even all that hungry when he'd came home from work, too. He told me our 2 year old had two helpings. He left me 2 bites worth. He thought it was awesome, and I guess my 2 year old did too. I gave it 4 stars just because I had to tweak it a little bit..



This was very good! I took it to the picnic too. It was easy. I did use 1/2 lb of fresh mushrooms instead of canned. I did it in the crockpot, overnight, and stired in noodles in the morning. That way it made a one pot dinner. I also added a can of cream of mushroom soup. with roasted garlic. Will use this again! And I also figured that the sour cream was left out, so added that. My husband really loved this one.
