Beef Stroganoff

One of my family’s favorite meals. The ingredients list egg noodles but any kind of noodles work fine. A word of advice, keep the stroganoff mixture separate from the noodles, that way the noodles don’t get soggy if you have leftovers. Also, for speed, try cooking you noodles in a separate pot right when you add the mushrooms. Whole thing can be put together in about 15 minutes if you have everything you need.


1.5 lb. lean ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
1 clove freshly minced garlic
1 t. Salt
1/2 t. pepper
