How to Store

  • For the best flavor, opt for lean ground beef with a bit of fat content, such as 93% lean. The fat adds flavor and moisture to the dish.
  • Brown the ground beef thoroughly before adding the mushrooms and onions to develop a rich, deep flavor.
  • Stir the sour cream in at the end of cooking to keep its texture smooth and prevent curdling.
