Where's the beef?

Ever had those weeks that you just crave something? I mean like crave, can't take your mind off of it, obsessed. Or is it just me? Maybe I have a weird connection with food. In pregnancy, I become crazy about food. Massive aversions, massive cravings. It's super fun (not so much). 

Anyway, last week when I went to the grocery store, apparently I was craving beef. I came home with hamburger, pot roast and steaks. 

All three were amazing but let's talk about what I chose to do with the beef. Why is it I always forget how good beef stroganoff is? Here's how I made it...

Beef Stroganoff
(cook/prep time 45 min, serves 4)

1 lb ground sirloin 
3/4 to 1 package of fresh mushrooms, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 Tbs garlic powder
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can beef stock
1 cup sour cream
2 Tbs butter

1 lb pasta (like egg noodles or fettuccine) 

In a skillet or pot, brown the hamburger. Once this is brown, add the butter, onions and mushrooms. Saute for 10 minutes. Add everything except the sour cream, which you'll add at the end of the cooking time. Stir until well mixed. Cover and let simmer for 30-45 minutes. Just before serving, stir in the sour cream. 

Serve over cooked pasta. It's that simple but oh-so-good! I also served it with a delicious salad and garlic bread. 

P.S. I recently tried a new version with a few small edits that can be found here

Bon appetit!
