One of my favorite meals growing up was simply Hamburger Helper Beef Stroganoff…yep, right out of the box and SO refined.

Literally, I could eat the whole box by myself in one sitting. As a person with cystic fibrosis, I have to have a lot of calorie intake to maintain my body weight; so sometimes, I’d make it as an afternoon snack (don’t judge me).

So now that I’m an adult and expected to feed my husband legitimate meals since I’ve deemed myself a cook, I’ve learned to make homemade beef stroganoff that’s as good as the Hamburger Helper stuff.

This is a simple, quick, and filling dinner your whole family will love.
