Mom's Stroganoff

Looks can be deceiving.  I couldn't come up with a good way to photograph this dish to have it look somewhat decent.  It is what it is, I guess.  But, what does it taste like?  That's the only thing that should matter, right?   

This is one of my favorite dishes. I loved it as a kid and I still love it as an adult.  I have made it countless times.  It is extremely simple to make and it uses ingredients that I usually have on hand.  The only thing is, Jake prefers his stroganoff over bow-tie noodles and I will only eat my stroganoff over a baked potato.  So, what's a girl to do?  Well . . . .

1 c. sour cream

Brown hamburger in medium skillet over medium heat.  Add the onion and cook a few minutes until soft.  Season with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle a few Tbl. of flour over hamburger to help thicken sauce.  Add cream of chicken soup and sour cream; stir to combine.  If sauce is too thick, add milk until it reaches desired consistency.  Cook until warm, but do not boil.  Serve over rice, noodles or baked potatoes. Yield: About 4, 1 cup, servings.
