I was sure I had posted Mom's here but a search of every term turned up nothing.

Beth's Hamburger Stroganoff
My mom was great cook! In her and dad's lean early years, she found this recipe on the back of Campbell's Soup Consomme and made it one of our family favorites. I usually triple the original recipe (make 1.5 of this one) for Dh and I, removing half to freeze after simmering 7 minutes and before I add mushrooms and sour cream. Make the day before - always better the second day! Currently making a lower fat version by starting with ground sirloin, spray oil and only 1TBS of butter and finishing with much less sour cream.

2-batch recipe
4 Tbs butter
3/4 cup finely chpd onion (Mom used 1 cup)
2 medium garlic cloves - minced
2 # ground round - best quality
4 Tbs flour
1/2 tsp Pepper (grind from pepper mill)
1/2 tsp salt (usually leave out and add at table)
5-6 Tbs Heinz apple cider vinegar
2 cans condensed Campbell's Consomme soup
12 oz tomato paste (Contadena)
12 oz can sliced mushrooms, drained (fresh sauteed in butter is best)
2 cups cultured sour cream
Extra wide hearty noodles (16 oz), cooked (OPT - sprinkle with 4 TBS fresh minced parsley before serving)

1. Melt butter in a large frying or sauce pan. Sautee onion and garlic until soft
2. Sprinkle flour/S&P mixture over meat and mix in lightly with a fork - from butcher, I just open the paper package and sprinkle - transfer meat to a bowl when plastic wrapped.
3. Add crumbled meat to onion/garlic in pan and cook 6 minutes (do not brown)
4. Stir in Consomme, 5 TBS vinegar and tomato paste. Simmer 10 minutes or only 6-7minutes if finishing later. Taste - should be vinegary (I almost always use 6-7 TBS but depends on cider vinegar potency). Blend in mushrooms (or chill and freeze).
5. Just before serving, rewarm and add a small amount of warm stroganoff to sour cream to temper then mix back into the pot. Simmer (not boil) 2 minutes to heat through. Check for S&P.
6. Refrigerate and rewarm leftover noodles and stroganoff separately.
