Okay so if you know me you know I am a total Pinterest junkie!!! The other day I was just fed up with making the same old meals, so I decided to turn to the famous website for some inspiration. I wanted something really easy to make something that reminded me of my childhood, and that’s when I saw the recipe for the one pot homemade beef stroganoff! My family and I hadn’t had stroganoff in over a year. I stopped buying the “Hamburger Helper Stroganoff” I grew up on simply because I don’t like that powdered packet stuff. I would much rather make it on my own and know exactly what I’m putting in my family’s belly. Omg I will forever live by this recipe! It was so good!!! Big hit with both of the boys and myself. Taste so much better than the hamburger helper! You guys have to try it!! So here’s how I made it….
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
- 8 oz crimini mushrooms, sliced
- salt and pepper
- ½ cup diced onion
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 lb ground beef
- 2 teaspoons paprika
- 4 cups low sodium beef broth
- 8 oz dry rotini
- ½ cup sour cream
- fresh parsley, for serving
- Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil over medium heat in a pot or large skillet. Add the mushrooms and cook until they are tender, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, then remove from the pot into a bowl and set aside.
- Heat the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil in the same pot. Add the onion, season with salt and pepper, and cook until translucent, 4-5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, 30-60 seconds. Add the ground beef and continue to cook, breaking up the beef with a spoon as it cooks, until it is browned and cooked through, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the paprika over the top and stir to combine.
- Pour in the beef broth and the pasta. Bring to a light boil then cover the pot. Continue to cook, stirring often, until the pasta is al dente, 17-20 minutes. Remove the pot from the heat and stir in the mushrooms and sour cream.
- Serve topped with fresh parsley. (optional)
