This is a pretty inexpensive meal, easy to make, and tastes good! The recipe is from CCK's cookbook. I changed it a bit.
1 lb ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped
2 T. flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp pepper
1 (4 - 9 oz) can sliced mushrooms
1 (10 3/4 oz) can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup sour cream
2-3 cups hot cooked egg noodles
- Cook and stir ground beef and onion until ground beef is thoroughly browned. Stir in flour, salt, garlic, pepper and mushrooms. Cook, stirring constantly, 5 minutes. Stir in soup. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered for 10 minutes. Stir in sour cream; heat through. Serve over hot noodles. Serves 4.
* Once I didn't have an onion, so I substituted it for about 1/2 to 1 tablespoon of onion powder. It worked fine and saved a dollar!
** The original recipe calls to cook the ground beef and onion in a 1/4 cup butter. I don't do that to cut down on calories/fat. Also, it calls for cream of chicken. I like cream of mushroom better.
