  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil

  • 1

    pound ground beef

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

  • 1

    pound cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced (or any mushrooms)

  • 1

    tablespoon tomato paste

  • 1

    tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 3

    cups beef broth

  • 8

    ounces wide egg noodles

  • ¼

    cup sour cream*

  • 1

    teaspoon Dijon mustard

  • 2

    tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

  • Add cheddar cheese if desired


Heat olive oil in a large stockpot or Dutch oven over medium high heat. Add ground beef and cook until beef has browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Drain excess fat. Stir in mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and browned, about 3-4 minutes. Stir in tomato paste until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute. Stir in beef broth and egg noodles. Bring to a boil; cover, reduce heat and simmer until noodles are cooked through, about 10-12 minutes. Stir in sour cream and Dijon mustard until well combined. Serve immediately, garnished parsley, if desired.
