Beef stroganoff is one of my favorite dinners to throw together last minute because it’s so quick and easy.  I typically use fresh mushrooms but I didn’t have any this time. .. soooo no mushrooms….

But that’s okay, right?  Some of you don’t like mushrooms anyway…

I love the savory oniony flavor of the beef paired with the tang of the sour cream.

Fresh Parsley from the garden adds a nice touch.

You can rough chop the onion.  I rough chop everything except for garlic. 😀

Start by breaking up the ground beef in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Then add  the chopped onion and two teaspoons (2 cloves) minced garlic.  Lightly season the beef with salt and pepper.

This is where you’d add two cups of sliced mushrooms if you HAD mushrooms unlike myself. 🙂

Once the ground beef is browned add 3/4 cup of sour cream, and 1/4 cup of milk.

Then a can of Cream of Mushroom soup… now mix it all up!

A couple dashes of Cayenne – (totally optional!)

Half of the chopped parsley, ground nutmeg, and then more salt to taste.  Mix it all up and turn the heat down to low to simmer.

Now par-boil the egg noodles and then run them under cool water to stop the cooking process.

Mix everything together in a big pot and warm it up on low heat for a few minutes.

Plate the hot stroganoff and garnish it with the remaining parsley and gobs of freshly grated Parmesan cheese.
