Poor Girl's Stroganoff

Recipe by Closetcook

This is a great and easy comfort food recipe which I found in a Midwestern Junior League Cookbook. This cooks up quick and great paired with a salad and garlic bread. Instead of a skillet, I use a large 9" sauce pan with lid.

So fast and easy but absolutely delicious! With such simple ingredients, I was surprised just how good this was. Keep this recipe in mind for a quick weeknight meal that's also kid-friendly. Used light sour cream and prepared in a 5-quart saute pan with good results. Thanks so much for sharing the recipe! Made for PAC Fall 2007.
