Hamburger Stroganoff

Ryan, I kept meaning to get this recipe to you anyway, so I figured I'd post it. And Jess, this is a great one to freeze in a ziploc. I leave out the sour cream until I'm ready to use it just b/c it can get a weird texture after being frozen. So when you're ready, thaw, add sour cream and throw it over some noodles.

1-1 1/2 lbs ground beef
1 1/2 cups beef broth
1/4 - 1/2 cup white wine (depends on how winey you want it)
8 oz mushrooms, sliced
3 tbsp flour
1 cup sour cream
noodles or rice

Brown and drain the meat. I use the beef bouillon cubes so for 1 1/2 cups broth, I use 1 cup hot water and 1/2 cup white wine. Then just cook the mushrooms in that mixture. Once the mushrooms are cooked, take them out and use 1/3 cup of the broth/wine and add the flour. You can shake them together in a tightly covered container or just put them in the pan and whisk them until smooth. Add the rest of the broth back in and heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir for one minute; reduce heat to low. Add mushrooms and beef. (Here's were you'd freeze it if you want to) Add in sour cream; heat until hot. Serve over noodles.

This seems very similar to one that Kathy Lesondak passed on to Ry and I, 10 years ago in Slovakia. But we messed up when we made it and bought sausage instead of beef cause we couldn't read those silly Slovakian packages. Ah, good memories. I'm gonna try yours next time, cause it sounds a little simpler. Of course, though, my man will demand the addition of onion! :) Thanks for posting this!

Thanks for posting this! It is so good and a huge hit around our house. It's nice b/c it's one of the few meals that leaves us with leftovers for Ken to take to work. I may just have to make this tonight for my man.

First of all, I love how everyone refers to their husbands as "my man"-so cute! Second of all, this recipe looks so good. It seems like I remember a stroganoff in Slovakia - cooked in one pot on a single burner in a room with no windows and a single bulb. It was yummy! I am looking forward to making this and freezing it. Thanks, Karen.
