Not quite my mom's

This is one of my favorite things my mom makes. I haven't made it yet because it seems like when I try to make her recipes, they just aren't as good. This was no exception. I think part of the reason this wasn't as good was because M used too many noodles so the sauce wasn't as thick. Oh well, there's always next time.... or next time I visit home!

Hamburger Stroganoff

1/2lb wide egg noodles
1lb ground round (mom always made this with ground turkey, as did I)
2 tsp. unsalted butter
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1 med. onion - chopped
2 tsp AP flour
1/2lb sliced mushrooms (omitted)
1/2 cup fat free sour cream
1 1/4 cup beef stock
Salt and Pepper to taste

Cook and drain noodles as package directs (next time I will do this as I'm cooking the hamburger mixture)

Melt butter in heavy nonstick skillet over medium heat. Sauté onion and mushrooms 5-7 minutes. Add meat and cook until brown. Stir often. Add Worcestershire sauce and S&P to taste.

Add flour and cook 1 minute, stirring often. Stir in stock and simmer until thickened. Stir in sour cream until heated.

Serve immediately over hot noodles.
