Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet brown ground beef (Use 1 to 2 pounds, depending on how meaty you like it) & drain fat. Return beef to skillet, add onions (chop these pretty finely), sliced mushrooms (again, you can use more or less than 8 ounces, depending on what you like) & garlic (more or less to taste), cook until tender. Mix in 1 ½ cups water, 1 teaspoons flour, 2 teaspoons (or cubes) beef bouillon, pepper (to taste),1 can of condensed mushroom soup, 1 can of mushrooms, Worcestershire sauce & ketchup. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and allow to simmer for 15 minutes. While that is cooking, mix together 1 8 oz. package of sour cream, the other teaspoons flour & parsley. Add to beef/mushroom mixture when it’s done simmering. Stir very well. Add salt & pepper to taste. If you prefer the sauce to be thinner, stir in small amounts of water until you reach the consistency you prefer. Serve over egg noodles & enjoy!
