Beef Stroganoff Pasta

The beef stroganoff I had growing up was a different recipe than most knew stroganoff to be. I always thought everyone else ate the same version until I became and adult and realized it was a different meal than I was accustomed to. Again, since my brother and father were picky eaters my mother omitted the usual sliced beef and mushrooms. She made some substitutions that I think will work for a lot of families with picky eaters as well as lower cost to prepare.


1 lb ground beef 
onion powder to taste
1 can mushrooms (optional)
10 oz condensed beef broth
2 tbsp catsup
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp flour
1 c sour cream
3-4 c hot cooked wide egg noodles

Brown meat with onion powder then drain.  Add broth (reserve 1/3 cup), catsup, garlic, and salt. Cover and simmer 15 minutes. Blend reserved broth and flour; stir into meat mixture. Add optional mushrooms. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Reduce heat. Stir in sour cream; heat. Serve over noodles.

This is a great meal served with broccoli or salad and garlic bread.
