Homemade Beef Stroganoff Hamburger Helper

I ate a lot of Hamburger Helper while growing up. I don't want to eat a lot of processed food, so I was very happy to find a homemade version of this boxed item. You can add vegetables to it and you will have a complete meal. I plan on making several variations and adding them to this blog.

Homemade Beef Stroganoff Hamburger Helper

1 tablespoon corn starch
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon parsley
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 ½ cups of pasta
1 cup of hot water
½ cup of milk
½ cup of sour cream
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms

Step 1: Sauce Packet
1 tablespoon corn starch, 2 teaspoons garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon parsley, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.
The packet can be prepared ahead of time, also measure out 1 ½ cups of pasta. Place them in zip lock bags or Tupperware until ready to use.

Step Two: Brown one pound of ground beef. 
Step Three: Add water, milk, sour cream, pasta, seasoning packet and chopped mushrooms. Simmer for 12 to 20 minutes.

Step Three: Turn off heat and uncover. Let stand to thicken at least 5 minutes before serving.
