Post updated June 2018

Dinnertime at our house has been a struggle lately. I write a grocery list every single week and for some reason I forgot to put at least half of that list into my grocery cart.

Two of the meals I had planned I didn’t even make because I did not have the ingredients (hello pizza delivery!) for and then the meal that I actually had the ingredients for I ended up boiling it to death…… and ruining my pot in the process. All while I was literally passed out asleep on the couch. This waking up at 6 am to get my oldest off to school is turning out to be too much for me. I’ll get used to it……. hopefully.

 Needless to say this ground beef country casserole came at a very much needed time. Finally a homemade dinner that worked, and that everyone loved! It reminded me of my most popular recipe on the blog, which is this CREAMY BEEF NOODLE BAKE. You guys must love easy and delicious casseroles because it still is my top viewed recipe since the day I posted it.

I think there is something so comforting about a warm casserole cooking in the oven. I reminds me of when I was little and my mom would always have dinner ready for us when my dad got home. Brings back so many memories. 

This tomato beef country casserole is a simple mix-everything-together type of casserole. Brown your ground beef + add seasonings and a few other ingredients, boil your noodles and then combine the two and pour into a baking dish. So easy!

When I made this I thought the ingredients seemed really odd. Like there was no way it would ever taste good. But I promise that it all works. I am not a big fan of canned creamed soups so when I post a recipe with a cream soup you know it has to be worth it.

The recipe calls for golden mushroom soup which is like cream of mushroom soup but it’s a tomato based creamed mushroom soup. If you can’t find it in your grocery store then just use regular cream of mushroom soup.

But with that said, I much prefer the golden mushroom soup in this recipe so try and find it at your local grocery store. I believe it’s fairly common so hopefully that won’t be a problem.

I also want to note that you can use whatever cheese you want. I’ve made this several times and each time I’ll just use whatever cheese is in the fridge, and it always comes out yummy. I think one of my favorites is to use provolone cheese. That was really good!

This is great served with a simple side salad. My kids happen to love salad so it’s always something I try to have the dinner table. Whatever vegetable you and/or your kids will eat, prepare that while the casserole is baking.

These 15 minute skillet carrots are a great side dish and they have a hint of sweetness which goes over well with kids. Or throw these slow cooker glazed carrots in the crock pot in the morning so they’ll be ready for dinner. We also really love this honey butter skillet corn or this slow cooker creamed corn with this dinner.

Ingredients
  • 1 bag (12 oz) wide egg noodles
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 can (10.75 oz) condensed tomato soup
  • 1 can (10.75 oz) golden mushroom soup
  • 1 cup 2% or whole milk
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 cup shredd parmesan cheese, provolone cheese, or Italian blend
Instructions
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray.

  2. Cook noodles according to package instructions. Cook for the lowest recommended time because it will cook in the oven later. Drain when done cooking.
  3. While noodles are cooking, brown ground beef with the salt in a skillet over medium high heat. Drain.
  4. In a large mixing bowl stir together the condensed tomato soup, golden mushroom soup, milk, onion flakes, Worcestershire sauce, pepper, and garlic powder.

  5. Add the cooked ground beef and the cooked (and drained) egg noodles. Stir together. Pour into your prepared dish and sprinkle the cheese on top.

  6. Bake for 25 minutes.
Recipe Notes

The can of golden cream of mushroom is important to this dish. Yes, you can use regular cream of mushroom soup but the flavor of this casserole is in the golden cream of mushroom soup.

 

Use 2% or whole milk (I use whole) because it's thicker and has a higher fat content. The lower fat milks have more water and are thinner, which will affect the outcome of the casserole.

 

I used some shaved parmesan cheese but you can use provolone cheese, Italian blend shredded cheese or even mozzarella.

 

You can use the twisty wide egg noodles or the straight wide noodles (which is what I used in the picture).

 

If you are sensitive to Worcestershire sauce, then just use 1 teaspoon, or even 1/2 teaspoon. You want to use at least some for the nice flavor boost it adds.

 

If you would rather use fresh onion, I would suggest adding it in with the ground beef so it can soften up a bit.

    August 21, 2016 at 4:32 pm My family loves casseroles. Will make this soon. I cook a similar dish on top of stove in huge pot..... kind of like a homemade hamburger helper. I also use golden mushroom soup when I make cubed steak.... Starts out in cast iron skillet and then finishes in oven low and slow. The steak ends up so tender you don't need a knife. Stumbled upon your webpage via a recipe newsletter I receive weekly. Will bookmark it as well as your other pages:) Thanks for being here!!

      August 21, 2016 at 6:40 pm Hi Lisa! So good to have you here :) I have actually never used golden mushroom soup before this recipe, but I do love the tomato base it has to it, and the flavor seems a lot richer. That steak dish you talked about sounds amazing. I know my husband and son would love it! Thanks for taking the time and leaving a comment.

    August 28, 2016 at 7:47 pm I made this for dinner tonight. It looked great in the pan. It tasted just ok. The Worcestershire sauce, in my opinion, gives it a funny, almost sour taste. I served it with corn along side, and my family stirred their corn into the casserole, saying they preferred the taste that way....a little savory and a little sweet with the corn. It definitely needed some texture. If I made this again, i would omit the Worcestershire sauce altogether, and stir in corn before baking. Also, I think I would omit the tomato soup and use two cans of the golden mushroom soup. I had never tried that before, and it has really good flavor. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

      August 28, 2016 at 8:15 pm Hi Dana! I love the idea of corn added to this dish. Great addition. I agree, the golden mushroom does have great flavor to it (I had never used it before either) so using two cans would work well I think. So sorry you did not care for the Worcestershire sauce. Thank you for coming back and leaving your feedback :) Have a great week!

        September 13, 2016 at 6:48 pm When I first saw the recipe, I thought about what a can of corn would do. Plan to try it with the corn. It adds just the right "thing" to so many dishes like chili and casseroles and extends the meal

    September 6, 2016 at 3:28 pm It looks good, but my husband is allergic to mushrooms, Could I substitute something in place of the cream of mushroom. Most of the time I use cream of celery or onion.

      September 6, 2016 at 8:23 pm Hi Amanda. I think it would be just fine to use cream of celery or any other creamed soup. I have only used the golden mushroom soup so i don't know how the taste would be affected with the other kind of creamed soup. Let me know if you try it :)

        March 28, 2018 at 6:02 pm To get the added flavor that the Golden Mushroom soup gives add a tablespoon of beef Better than Bullion to the cream of celery or other cream soup. Used this trick often and it has always been good.

    September 18, 2016 at 9:21 pm Made this casserole tonight - so easy! So delicious! The only change I made was to serve it with a dollop of sour cream on top. Served with garlic toast and my husband and I both loved it. Will definitely make again. After 35 years of marriage, you can get into a rut of making the same things over and over. Thank you so much for this easy and delicious recipe! Regards, Carrie

    December 12, 2016 at 2:18 pm Don't have the golden mushroom soup but do have cream of mushroom. Assuming it would be ok to make that substitution? Aware there may be a slight taste difference. Would that be only difference with this substitution or do I also need to add/remove something else?

      December 13, 2016 at 9:25 pm You could use cream of mushroom. The only difference is that the Golden Mushroom Soup has a tomato taste to it. They are essentially the same thing just a slightly different taste. You would not have to add/remove anything else. I hope you love it :)

      May 9, 2017 at 7:30 pm Hi! I found your blog a couple weeks ago and saw the tomato beef country casserole recipe. I thought it sounded something my whole family would like. I have 4 kids plus my husband. I finally made it tonight but forgot to get worcestshire sauce. I just added extra seasoning. Everyone loved it.... including my 16 y.o. who informed as I was in the process of making it, that she didn't really like casseroles. She took the biggest helping of it when it was done. 😁 I added green beans to the mixture so I had the protein, veggies and carbs all in one dish. We all enjoyed this recipe and it will definitely become a regular meal in my house. Although, it was great without the Worcestershire sauce, I will add it the next time just to taste the difference.

            August 20, 2017 at 10:37 am I think you could, yes. I've never done it so I can't say for sure how the end result would be. Fettucine noodles are denser and thicker so they may not soak up the sauce as much?? Or, they'll be fabulous and I am wrong :) Worth a try!

      April 22, 2017 at 10:00 am It makes a 9x13 baking dish so I would say it would serve 6 adult sized portions. In my family we have 4 kids (only 3 that eat) and then my husband and I. When I make this there are leftovers and enough to fill us all. 6 adult servings comfortably but if you serve it with sides you could probably get 8 adult servings. I hope that helps. Enjoy :)

    April 25, 2017 at 9:55 pm Okay I tried this tonight and my picky picky kids DEVOURED IT!!!!!! No complaints, it was a miracle!!!! I did however make a few adjustments since my husband will not touch a mushroom with a ten foot pole. I browned my beef with a minced onion, and three cloves of garlic. That's right, three. We love our garlic, don't judge. I then found, wait for it... cream of bacon soup. Bacon people!! Cream of bacon friggen soup, was not even aware that was a thing. What a thing indeed! So in short I substituted golden mushroom soup for cream of bacon and the result was nothing short of Devine. Deeevine. I finished with shredded provolone on top and my kids requested I pack the left overs in their lunch for tomorrow. What?! They want left overs for lunch?! Unfreaking heard of! You girl, are my hero. This was a win! Thank you!

    June 10, 2017 at 2:59 pm i made it last night and tossed all the leftovers. I should have read more of the comments before I made it. I admit I did pick up regular mushroom soup instead of golden, but I think it was the Worcestershire sauce that killed it for me. So, maybe i will give it another try with Golden Mushroom and season the meat with real diced onion instead of dried and leave out the Worcestershire sauce, or use less. I am usually not opposed to Worcestershire sauce, but maybe it was too much for my taste. It seemed to be all I could taste.

      June 12, 2017 at 12:43 pm So sorry! I will have to add a note in the recipe cause a lot of readers seem sensitive to the Worcestershire sauce. I don't care for too much Worcestershire sauce either, so I know what you mean. If you make this again, you could definitely use less Worcestershire or replace it with something else.

    June 10, 2017 at 7:15 pm I totally want to make this but my kids and I don't like mushrooms so I might need to try cream of bacon If I can find it! That sounds heavenly ! Thanks for the recipe! Looks so yummy

      June 12, 2017 at 12:41 pm I've never seen cream of bacon but ever since reading the comment, I look for it every time I go to the store :) I don't care for mushrooms either but I still love this casserole. You can also use cream of something else..... like celery, maybe?

    June 21, 2017 at 6:37 pm Stumbled upon your blog and this recipe a few days ago. I made this for dinner tonight and it was a hit with my crew, we will definitely be putting it in the rotation. My picky 5 year old even asked for leftovers for lunch tomorrow!! I did nothing different from your recipe except I had chopped onions which I softened with the beef. I thought this recipe sounded like something my family would like, but you just never know with picky kids!! This would make a great make ahead meal that I just have to pull out and toss in the oven after a long day. Thanks for a great addition to our meals!!

      June 21, 2017 at 8:29 pm So happy to have you here Maggie. A lot of readers have mentioned using fresh onion so I think that's a wonderful change. And yes, I know all too well about picky eaters. It's like a guessing game at whether or not they'll eat it! It does make for a really nice make-ahead meal :) Thanks so much for coming back to leave your comment.

    July 11, 2017 at 7:40 pm I made this for dinner tonight. I loved that it went together very easily. I used only 1 tablespoon of worchestershire because of the sodium content. I added a little red pepper flakes for some heat, fresh onion for the taste and more garlic than what the recipe called for because I cook a lot with garlic and thought it could use a little bit more flavor. I think next time, I would add corn for a little more color.

    August 6, 2017 at 10:50 pm Before I praise your recipe, I should explain that I've had little to no appetite for about 9 months now. I've even made my favorite comfort foods, took about 4 bites and just couldn't make myself eat it. Most of the time it tasted like cardboard. Your recipe though, was fantastic. I don't like condensed tomato soup (too sweet to me) so I used a large can of diced tomatoes and a few spoonfuls of tomato paste. I completely forgot the Worchester sauce, but will try it next time. No cardboard taste (Yay!) No taking several bites only to find it tastes like nothing (Yay.) The boyfriend loved it, I loved it, and even my parrot Elmo loved it. It was great with ground beef, but I'm tempted to try it with Italian sausage next time. Thank you for sharing. I intend to insert it into my *Routine Keeper" file.

      August 22, 2017 at 11:20 pm You could but I can't guarantee that the casserole would turn out the same, flavor wise. If it helps at all, I hate mushrooms but this casserole I can eat just fine even with the golden mushroom soup in it.

    August 27, 2017 at 7:37 pm I want to try to make this as it looks and sounds soooo good! Any suggestions as to how to adapt the recipe for the crockpot? It's way too hot for the oven right now! I could even run home and add the noodles later in the day if you'd suggest. How would you suggest adjusting liquids, noodles etc. Thanks!

      August 29, 2017 at 4:04 pm I honestly don't think this would work in the crock pot. There is not enough liquid and I have never been a fan of noodles in the crock pot. You could always experiment. I wouldn't even know what to suggest as I have never tried it. Sorry!

      October 23, 2017 at 2:17 pm Yes. On the label it just says Golden Mushroom Soup. But it comes in the same can as the other condensed soups (cream of mushroom, cream of chicken, etc.). You will find it by the cream of mushroom soup at the grocery store. Good luck and I hope that helps you :)

    November 16, 2017 at 10:27 pm This was pretty good. I used ground turkey because we just had ground beef the night before. I couldn't find golden mushroom, so I used cream of mushroom with garlic. I also added a can of diced tomatoes which I think worked. If I make it again will probably add some more spice, maybe Italian seasoning.

      January 21, 2018 at 12:10 am Update: Finally found the Golden Mushroom soup and I agree...it does make a difference in the flavor! I added peas (frozen that I put in a small colander, ran hot water over to thaw them and then added to casserole before baking). Now it’s a one dish meal. We still leave the cheese off as we like the moister consistency...and I’m now in the habit of doubling the recipe because the family requests the leftovers! Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

    January 7, 2018 at 10:51 pm This was absolutely delicious! Usually my husband and I aren’t a big fan of casseroles, but we both thought it looked good so I gave it a shot. When I started mixing the ingredients together we both thought it wouldn’t turn out to be honest! It was amazing! Simple, quick, and tasty. My husband said he’d rather have fresh onions, but other than that we both loved it. Thanks for the great recipe!

    June 4, 2018 at 7:51 pm I made this tonight. Hubs & I never eat mushrooms. We don't care for them. But I figured it's not like there is a ton of mushrooms in the soup. We probably wouldn't notice them all that much. I thought this was yummy in spite of the mushrooms and happily ate with gusto. So good :) Hubs was eating large spoonfuls, and then he spotted the mushrooms!! He said he knew he tasted them in there! He won't be eating this again, but I will definitely keep this recipe as I enjoyed it. I just won't make it when he has nothing else to eat in the house. It is comfort food at it's finest in my opinion!

    August 11, 2018 at 6:03 am Hi, haven't tried this yet (but I will, sounds wonderful!) & when I do I hope I find the golden mushroom soup. Have never seen it (or as others said the cream of onion OR cream of bacon!) but I will pick out the 'shrooms, not a fan of the texture. Question, have you prepared this in a casserole style crock pot? I would think it would work & I think if the noodles were left uncooked when assembling they might not be mushy at the end. Thoughts?

Sorry I can't help more. I have never found cream of onion or cream of bacon in the store either. Enjoy! I would definitely wait to make it until you find that golden mushroom soup. It's really good!
