I recently decided to try out a simple recipe for cheesy beef stroganoff I saw in my recent issue of Kraft’s Food & Family magazine. It is basically like a homemade version of hamburger helper. The whole dish is made in one skillet – who doesn’t love that? Only one dish to clean up!
My youngest loved it and devoured her whole serving. The rest of us thought that it was a bit rich and too cheesy. So I recommend reducing the Velveta used in the recipe by half (use 4 oz instead of 8 oz). You could also add 1/2 cup sour cream to make up for the reduced Velveta. However, I don’t think it would be necessary. I also think it would add more flavor to use beef broth for at least 1/2 the amount of water used in the recipe. You could even add some onion while cooking the beef. Plus, a few dashes of Worcestershire sauce to punch up the flavor even more. While you are at it, you could even add a can of mushrooms. However, that wouldn’t work with my mushroom hating family.
With a few alterations this cheesy beef stroganoff is a success. All made in one pan and ready to eat in 30 minutes.Print
