One of my favorite meals growing up was stroganoff. Unfortunately, my husband is not a fan. I did finally find the recipe for the ultimate beef stroganoff that my husband would eat. He would however still prefer a hamburger version. I saw this recipe for Mock Stroganoff in my February issue of Simple and Delicious and figured he would love this version. It was quick and simple. I did make some changes to the recipe, so this is my version.
This mock stroganoff all starts with browning a pound of ground beef in a large skillet along with some onion and mushrooms. I left the mushrooms out for use because I am the only one who likes them. Once the beef is fully cooked, drain of any excess grease.
Next, mix in the water and gravy mixes until combined. Bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes until thickened. Remove for the heat and mix in the sour cream. Serve the sauce over your favorite cooked noodles. Top with additional sour cream and green onion if desired. You can also serve the sauce over mashed potatoes or even cooked rice to change things up.
