  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 ½ cups sour cream or plain Greek yogurt
  • Cooked egg noodles


  1. Prepare Pioneer Brown gravy. Mix according to package directions. Set aside.
  2. Saute beef, mushrooms, and onions in butter in a large pot until lightly browned.
  3. Add ketchup, bay leaf, and gravy to the beef mixture. Simmer over low heat for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring often. Remove bay leaf.
