On weeknights when I have to work late and get dinner to the table fast I used to rely on hamburger helper. It was quick, easy, and usually a family pleaser. If you need a quick meal, that everyone loves, and you can keep on hand anytime, AND cook it from scratch in the same amount of time as a boxed meal, this is the recipe for you.
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 bag of egg noodles (any size – I’ve used small and extra wide)
1/2 onion, chopped (go ahead and chop the rest and throw it in a bag in the freezer for a future recipe – no chopping required!)
1 box of beef stock
1 cup of sour cream
In a large skillet, brown the beef and the onion. Drain off any excess oil. Add egg noodles and beef stock. If beef stock doesn’t cover the noodles add enough water to cover them. Simmer until liquid is cooked out and noodles are done. Stir in sour cream. Turn off heat. Serve with bread and a green vegetable and viola! Dinner is served.
