"Red" Stroganoff

from mom
-I'm not gonna lie. This is a basic throw-it-all-in recipe. It's basic "comfort food." It's not a fancy dish. But on a night you don't feel like making a big mess or production, this recipe fits the bill.

1 lb hamburger
3 cups Tomato Juice
1 cup water
1/2 tsp celery salt
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
3 cups dry egg noodles
1 cup sour cream

Brown hamburger. Season to taste with minced onions, and pepper. Drain grease if needed and return to pan. Add tomato juice, water, celery salt, Worcestershire, and noodles. Cover and cook until tender. I ran out of egg noodles so I substituted shell noodles. They worked fine but I had to add some more tomato juice because they soak up a little more than egg noodles. But it all tastes the same.

Turn heat off pan and add sour cream just before serving. Stir in until completely mixed. Lo-fat tip: Use ground turkey in place of hamburger.
