Fresh Spinach With Ground Beef

I found this in an old cookbook lent to me by a friend. It seemed like an easy comfort food recipe that could be prepared from ingredients that I usually have on hand, and wouldn't take a lot of effort on a tired night. Similar to ground beef stroganoff with spinach and bacon stirred in, my hubby loved it.

Love this dish and it is very versatile. I think I had a similar recipe several yrs. back but had forgotten it. Feel that the combination of the sour cream and spinach is really what makes this so good.

This is easy and used what was on hand. I added some rice to it, that used up the excess liquid. Very tasty dish,

This was very good, however I used chicken broth and chicken bouillon because I did not have beef flavor on hand. Also, did not have any bacon. Used less spinach and sour cream as well. It was a little runny so I let it cook out a little. Even after the above adjustments, it was very good. I used about 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes which really gave it a kick. My husband liked it, so I'm sure I'll make it again. Will try it with the bacon next time.
