  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook egg noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 5 minutes; drain.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Season beef with Greek seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  3. Heat vegetable oil in a separate skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir mushrooms in hot oil until tender, about 5 minutes; add to ground beef.
  4. Stir sour cream into ground beef mixture; cook and stir until hot, about 5 minutes. Serve over egg noodles.

Great recipe. I added a bit of garlic, a couple tablespoons of milk, slow simmered, and added the onions close to the end because I like my onions on the crunchy side for a bit more texture. Tha...

I liked it. Unfortunately hubby did not. No accounting for taste! ??

Great staple item for when you need a relatively quick, filling, tasty meal. I didn't think the seasoning would be enough, but it tastes rich and delicious. And it's cheap, so if you want to eat...
