Cook Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 pound of ground beef
  • egg noodles
  • ½ cup yellow onion
  • 1 tsp garlic
  • 3 Tbsp salted butter
  • 3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 1 ½ cups beef broth
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • salt and pepper, to taste



  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil, then start cooking the egg noodles according to the package guidelines.
  2. Brown the ground beef, onions, and garlic in a large skillet over medium-high heat until well cooked.
  3. To remove extra fat from the pan, drain the ground beef. Return the pan to the stove over medium heat (but don’t add the ground meat yet.)
  4. Toss in the butter and let it melt in the pan. After that, add flour to the pan, mix it in, and let it absorb the butter.
  5. Turn the heat to high and whisk rapidly to eliminate any lumps before adding the beef broth and bringing it to a boil for 2-3 minutes, or until it thickens slightly.
  6. Reduce the heat to medium and mix in the sour cream and mushroom soup. Stir until the mixture is completely combined.
  7. Season with salt and pepper. Continue to taste the mixture until it is seasoned to your liking. If it becomes too thick, thin it out with a little more beef broth.
  8. Return the ground beef to the mixture until it has warmed. Over egg noodles, serve.
