Homemade Hamburger Helper Beef Noodle
I always found really great deals on boxed Hamburger Helper when I spent time using coupons. My family loves the stuff, especially my hubby. Our favorite has been the Beef Noodle variety.
Over the years, Betty Crocker has made quite a few different variations of the quick and easy dinner idea. When surfing the web, I came across a blog, The Chickens In the Road. This site has quite a few different recipes for Hamburger Helper but they did not have one for our favorite Beef Noodle. What was a girl to do?
I decided to take a chance at making my own Beef Noodle Hamburger Helper. It was so super quick and easy. I had everything right in my pantry to make homemade.
Hamburger Helper is perfect for making when I am pressed for time. I can quickly brown ground beef and have dinner on the table in less than 30 minutes.
To make this recipe, you will want to have a pound of ground beef, wide egg noodles, milk, and a few spices. The beef bouillon added the same flavoring you will find in the box mix and worked perfectly.
1 lb Ground beef
2 cup Wide Egg Noodles
1 1/2 cup Water
1 1/2 cup Milk
3 Beef Bouillon Cubes
1 tbsp Cornstarch
1 tsp Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp Onion Powder
1 tsp Sugar
1/2 tsp Black Pepper
1 tsp Salt
In a small bowl, mix together cornstarch, sugar, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. set aside.
