Ground Beef Stroganoff

2 pounds ground beef
2 medium onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
Small can sliced mushrooms, drained
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 cup consomme or bouillon
3 tablespoons tomato paste
1 1/2 cups sour cream mixed with 4 tablespoons flour



Brown ground beef in large skillet; add onions, garlic and mushrooms. Saute until onion is golden brown. Put in CROCK-POT with all remaining ingredients. Stir thoroughly. Cover and cook on Low 6 to 8 hours. Serve over hot buttered noodles* or rice.

*I recommend egg noodles.

Hmm. I make this without the consomme or tomato paste, I just use 2 cans of condensed cream of mushroom soup and about 1 can of water. I mix the flour with the water to avoid any lumps. I like mostaccioli (whatever--the little tubes) and my sister will only eat it over rice.

That;s how my mom taught me, anyway.

The tomato is probably added to bring the flavor closer to a brown sauce, which is the base for the stroganoff. Yeah, I'd go with the egg noodles, but rice would be interesting.

Here in Sweden we sometimes make "Korv Stroganoff", (i.e. sausage instead of beef). Otherwise it´s much the same recipe. "Sausage Stroganoff" is always served together with rice.

Kim-
Most people I know use cream of mushroom soup as well, though I never thought about serving it over rice. That sounds better to me, and I love noodles. I'm currently addicted to Zatarain's frozen rice entrees (Dirty Rice being my favorite). I'll have to try the stroganoff over rice now.

Thanks for commenting! :)

La Vida Dulce-
I agree, rice does does sound good! Thanks for commenting! :)

Karin-
Ooh, I would like it better with sausage rather than ground beef. I'll have to try it with sausage AND rice in lieu of noodles. Thank you for the heads up!

Thanks for taking the time to comment, I appreciate it! :)
