Ground Beef Stroganoff Recipe

Beef Stroganoff has proven itself again and again to be a classic, well loved and tasty dish.  This recipe uses ground beef instead of sirloin strips for a less expensive version.  But don’t let that fool you.  The taste is all there!

Ground Beef stroganoffThis recipe is as easy to make as one of your packaged hamburger helper meals, but you end up with tons more flavor and none of the chemicals.  And the addition of sherry gives the recipe a slightly sweet taste that marries very well with the other ingredients.

Looking for a meal that is ready in less than 20 minutes?  This one is perfect.  Just boil your pasta, brown the beef, mushrooms and onions and make the sauce. 

There are a couple of rules to make sure that your ground beef stroganoff ends up being delicious.  First, be sure to use ground chuck.  Although tough as a normal cut of meat, chuck is full of flavor and gets very tender when ground. Second, be sure to brown the beef well.  Don’t be too handy with the spoon during this part of the cooking.  Let it brown and then stir. Your taste buds will thank you for your patience.

Don’t you love the look of these luscious mushrooms, combined with the crumbled ground beef?   It tastes just as good as it looks, too!

Ground Beef and mushroom stroganoffServe with a tossed salad and some garlic bread for a tasty and easy week night meal that you family will request again and again.
