  • 2 12-ounce cans roast beef in beef broth (I used Kirkland Signature brand)
  • Drizzle of olive oil
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 7.5 ounce jar/can sliced mushrooms, drain & reserve juice (or substitute 8 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and pepper (optional)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Hot cooked noodles


  1. Drain beef well, reserving broth. Measure broth into a 2-cup measuring glass. (I had about 1 1/4 cups broth.) Add sufficient reserved mushroom liquid to the beef broth to make a total of 1 1/2 cups liquid (if needed add beef consume, bouillon or water to make a total of 1 1/2 cups); set beef and broth aside.
  2. Heat a large skillet over medium heat with a small drizzle of olive oil. Add onions and saute until tender, about 6 minutes; stir in garlic and mushrooms and cook 1-2 minutes more.
  3. Push vegetables aside and melt butter in a quadrant of the skillet. Stir flour into butter well to make a paste. Add beef broth gradually, blending first into the flour paste and then incorporating vegetables into the mixture. Add ketchup and Worcestershire.
  4. Heat and stir til broth is somewhat thickened; reduce heat, cover and maintain a simmer 5 minutes. Add beef gently to avoid mashing solid pieces. Cook uncovered and reduce liquid to desired consistency, about 5 minutes more, stirring as needed to prevent sticking. Check for seasonings (due to sodium in canned meat and broth there might not be a need for additional salt.)
  5. Stir in sour cream; heat just to serving temperature. Serve over noodles.
  6. Yield 6 family size servings, or 4 "hungry man" servings.
