Ground Beef Stroganoff

Did you know that Beef Stroganoff is a Russian dish? I had no idea until I looked it up on wikipedia. I found a recipe for Ground Beef Stroganoff so it's not the typical "stroganoff" but it was really good. Since my lil' guy can't eat egg noodles, I used Radiatori noodles instead. We liked this dish because we didn't end up with dried, leathery slices of beef which is my typical stroganoff.

Not-so-Russian stroganoff...great stuff!
