Let's talk about those days when we don't have a lot of time and our hunger is at an all-time high. That's where the kitchen magic of one-pot dinners comes in, and let me tell you, there's a star player in town: Hamburger Helper. Only this version is homemade and even more delicious.
Imagine this: you walk into your kitchen, grab a single pot, toss in a handful of ingredients, and boom, a yummy meal happens. No heaps of dishes, no kitchen chaos. Hamburger Helper is the embodiment of keeping it easy-peasy without sacrificing flavor!
Hamburger Helper isn't just simple - it's a flavor bomb waiting to go off in your mouth. Juicy, seasoned beef meets a creamy sauce that's basically a cozy hug for your taste buds.
But it doesn't stop there! Add in a party of spices and herbs—garlic, onion, and paprika—that make each bite a legit adventure. And let's not forget the cheese and heavy cream that swoop in for the creamiest, most comforting touch. Seriously, this dish is a love letter to your palate.
Start by cooking the beef in a large pan. Once the meat is fully cooked, drain the fat with a paper towel.
Next, add the onion and bell peppers.
Season with salt, pepper, garlic powder, cornstarch, and paprika. Mix everything together well.
Add in the beef broth and mix in.
Add in the heavy cream and tomato sauce. Mix well and bring to a boil.
Once the liquids are at a boil, add the full box of pasta and cover the pan. Cook for 8–10 minutes, or until the pasta is al dente.
Add in the cheese, mix until melted, & serve! Enjoy!
