Easy, quick and cheap. The only notes I have on this recipe is: Peg Bracken I Hate To Cook.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Start cooking those noodles, first dropping a bullion cube into the noodle water.
  2. Brown the garlic, onion, and crumbled beef in the oil.
  3. Add the flour, salt, paprika, and mushrooms, stir, and let it cook five minutes while you light a cigarette and stare sullenly at the sink.
  4. Then add the soup and simmer it--in other words, cook on low flame under boiling point--ten minutes.
  5. Now stir in the sour cream--keeping the heat low, so it won't curdle--and let it all heat through.
  6. To serve it, pile the noodles on a platter, pile the Stroganoff mix on top of the noodles, and sprinkle chopped parsley around with a lavish hand.
  7. I copied it word for word.

I have been making this for years. The reason to use cream of chicken soup instead of cream of mushroom soup is that the taste of mushroom soup in a dish is a dead giveaway that you used something out of a can in your creation. If you don't like cream of chicken soup, use cream of celery. It will add to the flavor without giving away the ingredient.

This is a really great, cheap recipe. I also used fresh mushrooms and less salt. Excellent dish!

I changed this recipe just a bit to take care of my personal tastes. First thing was to substitute ground chicken for ground beef. Since I'm not a big fan of cream of chicken soup, I substituted cream of mushroom. Instead of canned mushroom, I sauteed fresh mushroom with the meat. I also cut down on the amount of salt (I've got to watch my blood pressure). My last change was to omit the step involving smoking a cigarette - but had a good laugh during that time instead. DH & DS claim this would be 5 stars if prepared with ground beef. I believe it was definitely 5 stars prepared my way. Fantastic recipe - one that is sure to be a family favorite. Thanks for sharing.
