Ready In:




  • In a large skillet heated over medium heat brown beef until almost all of the pink is gone. Season to taste with salt, pepper and onion powder.
  • Cube the Velveeta cheese into small chunks and put them in a small sauce pan heated over medium low heat. Stirring constantly, add in garlic, Worcestershire sauce, milk, onion powder, salt and pepper to taste. Cook until creamy and smooth.
  • In a large pot boil water and cook noodles to directions on packaging.
  • Once meat is almost fully cooked add in Velveeta sauce. Drain the pasta and add to skillet. Stir and serve.
  • I like to serve this with green beans or carrots. Sometimes I add on a salad for myself. Very quick and uncomplicated. Hope you enjoy!

  1. As written, we thought this was good. But we made a lot of changes to make it even better. I doubled the cheese (used 16 ounces shredded velveeta) and about 3/4 cup milk because I thought the original recipe was dry. I then doubled all the other ingredients other then the garlic, noodles and beef. My family then thought the recipe was great. It does taste like Hamburger Helper stroganoff but better. Will make again with the above modifications.
  2. Followed others suggestion of 3/4 cup milk, doubling the cheese and worcestershire sauce. I also added a teaspoon of paprika and parsley. A quick meal for a week night.
  3. DH liked this better than I did. He loves Velveeta. I thought it was really dry, next time I would add more cheese and more milk. I also added more worcestershire sauce. Might try making again.
  4. dh loved this it was just ok for me but will probably make again for him
  5. This was very similar to Hamburger Helper (the Stroganoff, IMO). I added extra milk because it was a bit dry. I used fresh minced onion and regular egg noodles. The whole family loved it. Thanx for sharing; I'll make this again.


I am 26 years old and have been happily married to Joshua for 4 months now. I am a pretty good cook but I am looking for some new recipes to share with my husband. I love, love, LOVE!to cook. I love cooking for my step children. (They love it too!!) We have made meatballs together, baked and decorated cookies together. The kids and I have a great time when we go grocery shopping together. They get a hands on experience on different foods, cultures, textures. It is like a science class or field trip for them! I am excited to collect some great recipes that I can share with my Husband and step children.
