This easy Ground Beef Stroganoff Recipe is a more frugal version of the classic beef stroganoff with the delectable flavors of mushrooms, onions, and garlic in a creamy rich sauce. This quick and easy comfort food meal can be prepared in less than thirty minutes, making it doable for busy weeknights. For a complete meal suitable for company, I love to serve this dish with Garlic Knots and Green Bean Bundles with Bacon.
