Uncle Phaedrus,

My mother made a Hamburger Stroganoff when I was growing up in the 60s. 
Sadly, she passed in 2009 and her recipes were lost. The stroganoff recipe, 
unlike others, had no sour cream. It did have cream of mushroom soup, peas 
and lemon juice as some of the ingredients that I remember. It may have 
even been referred to as mock stroganoff. I have scoured the internet 
(Im a decent researcher) but to no avail. Almost every recipe has sour 
cream. Im really missing this dish, probably from nostalgia more than 
anything else. Thank you if you do find this recipe.


Hi Karen,

Sorry, I had no success findinga "mock stroganoff", a "beef stroganoff", a "hamburger stroganoff", or a "ground beef stroganoff" recipe with cream of mushroom soup, peas, and lemon juice, but no sour cream. I did find some ground beef stroganoff recipes with no sour cream, but they did not fit the rest of the description.

I'll post this. Maybe a reader will recognize it.
