This is a recipe I came up with when I was helping to raise 6 kids. Every penny counted. You can add onions if desired.

I did add one large onion and a tablespoon of worchestershire sauce. This was a little thick, I did add a little canned milk to thin it out just a touch. Very rich, very good. NO LEFTOVERS. This reminds me of something similar Mom made for me when I was growing up. Read More

I've seen many recipes for "ground beef" stroganoff over the years but this is the first time I've made one. The one thing that I didn't like was that the sour cream totally liquified once combined with the meat. The dish had zero eye appeal because of the watery texture. The Greek seasoning was a nice addition but overall this stroganoff was a disappointment. In all fairness it could be that I wouldn't like any ground beef stroganoff so moving forward I'll stick with the real deal version. Sorry olderguy for the less than favorable review. Read More

Loved this!! I didn't have enough sour cream, so I substituted some half and half to make up for it. It gave it a nice, creamy texture and the sauce to go over the noodles. I added 1/2 a teaspoon more seasoning than the recipe called for as my family likes a lot of spice. I didn't have any brand name Greek seasoning blend so I used one I made from here: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/231228/greek-seasoning-blend/ It turned out great too!! Read More

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. Thanks for sharing! We loved it. Read More

Average flavour profile but a good quick and easy meal. I actually added a teaspoon of McCormick Mild Curry Spice. It gave it a wonderful savory depth. Nice crisp peppers and steamed green beans complimented the dish nicely. Read More

I made this without the noodles so basically just the beef... also added sauteed eggplant. It's a simple recipe but delicious and easy to make with little ingredients. I changed a bit but the idea was the same and I appreciate the inspiration. Thanks for sharing! Read More

I pretty much followed the recipe, except I cooked it for eight hours in a crockpot. I browned the onion before putting it in. I added a few sliced carrots and a bay leaf. At the end, it was a bit too runny, so I added some instant potato flakes to thicken it. So, I didn't follow the recipe exactly, but pretty darned close. Very tasty soup that I will make again!
