Great recipe. I reduced the ground beef to 3/4 lb, replaced the sour cream with hummus for thickness and extra fiber and added peas. The fiancee, who hates vegetables, LOVED it. Will definitely make again.
Very finely chopping onion, mushrooms and carrots in the food processor is not only fast—it makes the vegetables hard to detect for picky eaters. They also form the base for the sauce of this ground beef skillet supper. Make it a meal: Serve with a green salad.

Was looking for a kid-friendly one skillet meal that had some hidden veggies. I think the large amount of dried thyme was a mistake in this recipe - it overwhelms all other flavors. Next time I might try adding tomato paste and a little paprika as some other users suggested. Hopefully I might still be able to doctor up the leftovers!
I used ground turkey instead of hamburger. I did use the food processor and my veggies were not mushy. They were perfect, just don't over process. In addition, I added tarragon to this and a touch of cinnamon. I added a half of a bun to the plate to soak up the extra sauce. Will make this again.
In order to make this kosher, I replaced the sour cream with coconut milk I had on hand. It was delicious! You could probably leave it out altogether by adding a little more broth.
I made this using turkey mince, the pureed veggies seemed to bulk out the meat and create a nice thick sauce. I also added paprika, and tomato paste for a stroganoff style feel. It was very yummy, and the kids LOVED it. I think you could even add some red lentils if you want extra fibre. I didn't add the extra water and therefore didn't need the flour.
