Creamy Ground Beef Stroganoff {One-Pot Meal}

Creamy Ground Beef Stroganoff

Confession time…my kids aren’t the best eaters.  I’d like to say they eat without a fuss but that’s just not true.  Since we completely stopped catering to their finickiness its gotten a lot better -i.e. they eat what they are given or they don’t eat.  The choice is theirs but our dinner is our dinner.  I usually have sides that are pretty “kid-friendly” (fruit, simple veggies, etc.) but the main dish (unless its WAY TOO SPICY) is whatever I decide to make.

Sometimes though its nice to make something I know everyone will eat without complaining.  Thus, we eat a ton of pasta over here.  Its one of the few things that all three kids eat without ANY fuss:)

This recipe is one of the pastas that the kids absolutely tear up.

Creamy Ground Beef Stroganoff Recipe

Some things I like about this recipe:

  • One-pot cooking – I’ve mentioned my dislike of dishes before:)
  • It makes alot of pasta with only 1 lb. of meat – saves money, resources, AND provides delicious left-overs.
  • Uses ingredients that I usually have on hand.  Although beef stock is hit or miss the substitution option means I pretty much always can whip this up.

I used Kate’s recipe over at Cooking During Stolen as a starting point and tweaked to our preferences (no mushrooms because of D, stretch ingredients because of my frugal-ness, etc.)

Is it fancy?  Of course not – it reminds me of a Hamburger Helper sort-of thing.

Is it yummy?  Yep!!  In fact I’m getting really hungry typing this (although, unfortunately, this isn’t what is on the menu for tonight).

Loodle likes this recipe so much that every time we have it she asks:

“Can you make this pasta EVERY time?”

I’d say that’s a rave review coming from a 3-year-old, wouldn’t you?

Thanks for taking a look!  As always, let me know if you give it a try.

Blue Skies & Blessings, Lindsey
