Torrey's Beef (or Turkey) Stroganovski

Torrey Moseley


JUST SAY NO to Hamburger Helper. My family LOVES this (and so do I). And YES, I make mine with butter. I mean come on, Paula Deen is my hero. I SUPPOSE you could substitute the butter for olive oil...but really, WHY? OH and if you wanna do the "healthy" thing... ground turkey works equally as well as ground beef.

How to Make Torrey's Beef (or Turkey) Stroganovski


  1. Brown and drain hamburger (or ground turkey) and set aside.
  2. In large frying pan, melt butter and saute onions and mushrooms (you can use ANY type of mushrooms--white button, cremini, portobello, shiitake, oyster, chantarelle...or a combo). When they have rendered their juice...pour it off and save it for the sauce.
  3. Then, add the EVOO to the pan and continue to cook the heck out of the onions/shrooms until they are CARMELIZED. This takes awhile. I'm talking the onions and shrooms need to be cooked all the way down and BROWNED. REALLY brown. Trust me.
  4. Add the garlic near the end of the mushrooms' cooking time, otherwise it will burn and turn bitter.
  5. In a saucepan, combine reserved juice from onions/shrooms with condensed soup. Add Worcestershire sauce, Oyster sauce, Pick-A-Peppa sauce, sour cream and salt and pepper. Stir well. Heat until warm, and make sure you stir it well while heating it.
  6. Add hamburger (or ground turkey) and cooked onions/mushrooms and stir gently until everything is coated.
  7. Serve over cooked pasta. Goes great with hot sourdough bread on the side--slathered in butter, of course! Come is TOO short to eat alfalfa sprouts and tofu.
