Hamburger Stroganoff

October 26, 2015

This is a quick and hearty fall dinner option. We like it due to its rich mushroom flavor and the fact that you can serve it over noodles or mashed potatoes. While it doesn’t photograph all that great, I promise your taste buds will enjoy it.

  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 8 oz baby bella mushrooms, washed and sliced into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1 1/2 t pepper
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 t garlic powder
  • 11 oz cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 c beef broth
  • 1 c water
  • 1 T parsley
  • 1 c sour cream
