This recipe takes all of the great flavors of traditional beef stroganoff and combines them in casserole form! This is a great family pleasing recipe and it really stretches a pound of ground chuck or beef. If you are feeding big appetites on a budget this is for you! Here is what you need for this casserole:
12 oz. bag of wide egg noodles, cooked and drained
2 Tbs. butter
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
8 oz. sour cream
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp. dried parsley
1lb. ground chuck or ground beef
1 medium sweet onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1/2 tsp. seasoned salt
1/2 tsp. black pepper.
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 Tbs. Worcestershire sauce
1 (10.5 oz.) can cream of mushroom soup
1 (10.5 oz.) can beef consommé or beef broth
1 (4 oz.) can sliced mushrooms, drained (optional)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
2 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
Cook the egg noodles just until al dente, about 1-2 minutes below the recommended cooking time. Drain and place back in the pan with the butter, cubed cream cheese, sour cream, milk and parsley. Cover to allow the butter and cream cheese to melt somewhat while you prepare the sauce. Toss lightly when the butter and cream cheese has melted enough. Make sure the heat if off while it sits. It doesn't need to cook, just sit in the warm pan.
In a skillet brown the ground chuck, onion and celery. If there is excess grease, drain. Add the cream of mushroom soup, beef broth or consommé (I prefer the consommé), seasoned salt, black pepper, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, and mushroom slices. The additional mushroom slices are optional, because some families don't care for them. Bring to a boil, stir and reduce heat to simmer for about 10 minutes.
Spray a 9"x13" baking dish with nonstick spray. Layer half the noodle mixture, half the beef sauce, half of each cheese. Then repeat all of the layers again ending in the cheeses.
Cover and place in a 350 degree oven for 20 minutes. I used a Temptations baking dish so I just covered it with the lid-it, which I then removed and cooked my rolls on! Have I told you how much I love Temptations!
Uncover and bake for about 10 more minutes or until the cheese is nice and melted on top!
Doesn't it look yummy?
Serve with a salad or vegetable and rolls and dinner is served! This can be prepped the night before and baked the next day also!
