Easy beef stroganoff

My friend Michelle asked me for my stroganoff recipe, so I thought I’d put it here.  This is very easy to make, and also great for making ahead or doubling for a big crowd.  I often made this as a meal for new moms and doubled it just last week when our Jones relatives were here.

Easy beef stroganoff – serves 4

1 lb. lean ground beef
1 med onion – chopped
1 clove garlic – minced
1 can cream of mushroom soup (condensed)
1/2 tsp. salt (more or less to taste)
1c. sour cream
Egg noodles

1.) Cook beef, onion and garlic  in 10″ skillet (single batch) or dutch oven over medium heat, 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally until beef is brown.  Drain.
2.) Stir in soup and salt.  Simmer 10 min uncovered.
3.) Stir in sour cream, cook til hot. 
4.) Prepare hot noodles according to package instructions.  Serve over noodles.

Accompaniments:  goes nicely with garlic bread, green beans, broccoli

Make ahead:  When making ahead, prepare through step 2, then refrigerate sauce.  When I made this for new moms I would prepare through step 2, then deliver with a carton of sour cream and the bag of noodles.  It was easy for mom (or even better dad!) to heat up when needed and was a bit different than the usual new mom casserole.
