    • Mushrooms: Use whatever fresh mushrooms you prefer. I like baby portabella because it’s what is available at my grocery store and they are affordable. Please don’t substitute with canned mushrooms unless it’s a last resort. Browning fresh mushrooms adds so much flavor to this dish.
    • Onion
    • Butter/Oil
    • Lean ground beef: I like to use lean ground beef but use whatever you have on hand. You may need to drain the grease after browning.
    • Garlic
    • All-purpose flour
    • Beef broth: I like reduced sodium
    • Uncooked egg noodles: can also use another quick cooking noodle. (Something that doesn’t take longer than 10 minutes to cook).
    • Worcestershire sauce
    • Beef bouillon: I like better than bouillon brand
    • Dried parsley: feel free to replace with fresh parsley. Use about 1 tablespoon
    • Sour cream: can use plain yogurt as well

    About this One Pot Hamburger Stroganoff:

    • This is best enjoyed shortly after cooking it.  The leftovers aren’t the best as the noodles will continue to soak up the liquid and become a little mushy.  My kids will still eat it but I’m just letting you know.
    • If you like the sauce to be a little creamier up the sour cream to 1 cup.

    • 8 ounces (230g) sliced baby portabella mushrooms
    • 1 small onion, chopped
    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 pound (500g) lean ground beef
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
    • 3 cups (710ml) beef broth ( I like reduced sodium)
    • 3 cups (150g) uncooked egg noodles
    • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    • 1 teaspoon beef bouillon (or 1 cube) (I like better than bouillon brand)
    • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
    • cup (150g) sour cream (or more if you like it creamier)
    • salt and pepper to taste
    1. In a large skillet over medium heat cook the mushrooms and onion with the butter and olive oil until softened and mushrooms are lightly browned.  Add the ground beef and garlic and cook until beef is no longer pink (or until it is mostly cooked, it will continue to cook as it simmers). 

    2. Add the flour and stir to coat.  Add the broth, uncooked noodles, Worcestershire, beef bullion, and parsley.  Cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until pasta is tender.  Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.

    3. Remove from heat and stir in sour cream.  Taste for salt and pepper and season accordingly.
