The touch of cumin and chili powder add a little zing to this skillet standard. My family aren't big gravy fans so this is drier than you might expect. Feel free to double the amount of beef stock and cornstarch to make more sauce if your family likes it better that way. If its summertime you could sneak in some of that surplus zucchini from the garden and it would be delicious that way.
- 2 lbs extra lean ground beef (or mixed) or 2 lbs ground beef (or mixed) or 2 lbs ground turkey (or mixed)
- canola oil
- 2 large onions
- 4 ounces canned mushrooms, drained
- 1 cup beef stock (if you have no homemade stock I suggest Tones Soup base rather than bullion)
- 1 tablespoon sherry wine
- 1 pinch celery seed
- 1 pinch cumin
- 1⁄2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 dash garlic
- 1⁄4 cup cold water
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream (more or less to taste)
- 1 lb egg noodles, cooked
- salt and pepper
- Brown the ground beef in a little canola oil in a large, deep skillet. I prefer my cast-iron chicken fryer.
- Quarter and slice the onions. Add to the skillet and sauté until they begin to brown.
- Add the mushrooms, beef stock, sherry, celery seed, cumin, chili powder, and garlic. Simmer until onions are soft.
- Whisk cornstarch into the cold water and add to the skillet. Stir until thickened.
- Remove from heat and stir in the sour cream.
- Serve over noodles.
Everyone ate this dish without complaint. They didn't even pick out the onions! I only used 1, however. I browned the ground beef/ground turkey mixture in the Tupperware steamer and cooked the onions on the stove, then added the meat. Used homemade chicken stock with a packet of beef granules thrown in. Didn't use the mushrooms and added some Worcest. How can you have stroganoff without Worcest. sauce?? :D Anyways, it turned out good.
