1.5 lbs ground beef
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Medium onion, diced
2 teaspoons minced garlic
2 cans Campbell’s cream of mushroom soup
1.5 cups beef broth
3 oz cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
1 package Lipton’s onion soup mix
1 lb wide egg noodles
2 tablespoons heavy cream
Salt & Pepper, to taste
Step 1: Begin by cooking the wide egg noodles according to the package instructions until al dente. Once cooked, drain and set aside, keeping them warm.
Step 2: In a large skillet, brown the ground beef over medium-high heat until no longer pink. Drain any excess fat, then add the diced onion and minced garlic to the skillet. Cook with the beef for a few minutes until the onion is translucent and fragrant.
Step 3: Stir in the Worcestershire sauce, and then add the two cans of cream of mushroom soup, beef broth, and the Lipton’s onion soup mix to the skillet. Mix well to combine all the ingredients thoroughly.
Step 4: Reduce the heat to low and let the mixture simmer gently. Cut the cream cheese into small cubes and add it to the skillet, stirring until the cream cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth.
Step 5: Stir in the sour cream and heavy cream to the skillet, mixing well to ensure a creamy consistency. Season the sauce with salt and pepper to taste. Allow the sauce to simmer on low heat for an additional 5-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Step 6: Once the sauce has thickened to your liking and is heated through, gently fold in the cooked egg noodles until they are completely coated in the stroganoff sauce.
Step 7: Serve the Ground Beef Stroganoff hot, garnished with chopped parsley or a sprinkle of paprika if desired for color and added flavor.
The addition of cream cheese and heavy cream to the traditional stroganoff recipe gives this dish an extra creamy, rich texture that beautifully complements the savory flavors of the ground beef and mushroom soup.
Ground Beef Stroganoff is best served hot, directly after combining the noodles with the sauce to ensure the noodles do not become too soft. Pair it with a simple green salad or steamed vegetables for a balanced meal.
For a lighter version, you can substitute the heavy cream with additional sour cream or use a light cream cheese.
If the sauce is too thick, adjust its consistency by adding a little more beef broth until you reach the desired thickness.
To add a fresh element to the dish, consider stirring in some chopped fresh parsley or dill just before serving.
