Move on over Hamburger Helper, we’ve got a new favourite one pot dinner in town: Healthy One Pot Beef Stroganoff!
Honestly, I don’t even know why Hamburger Helper became such a thing back in the day. While I can definitely be a sucker for all things processed food (I’m known to eat a whole box of Kraft Mac n Cheese to myself every once in a while…), I just don’t even understand what the convenience factor was behind it.
Like isn’t that the point of most boxed/frozen food? The fact that it’s super easy and basically takes zero time to prep dinner on a busy weeknight?
To me, having to cook a whole pound of ground beef in addition to potentially throwing in extra veggies on top of a boxed dinner actually seems like a lot more work than is necessary. You’re honestly better off cutting out the middleman and using simpler, less processed ingredients like beef broth, red wine and sour cream.
Because really, those three ingredients are the secret to this Healthy One Pot Beef Stroganoff. Aka, there is no secret to cooking from scratch. And yes I know these are kind of “indulgent” ingredients but a tiny bit goes a long way, and I can guarantee you it’s a lot better than using a dried, packaged sauce mix.
