I found a super easy Beef Stroganoff recipe at the Betty Crocker website. Minimal prep and soooo delicious. Of course, my usual tinkerings with a recipe are in abound here.
I start by chopping about 1/2 sweet onion together with several cloves of garlic and a small can of mushrooms, and then sautéing them in about 1C of water and 1T butter, until the onions are translucent.
I then remove them from the pot and set aside. In the same pot, I brown 1lb. lean ground beef, draining off any grease. The recipe calls for thinly sliced sirloin steak, but it can often be tough. Using ground beef cuts prep time and cook time.
KitchenTip: Using two or three wadded up paper towels and rolling them around in the drained and slightly cooled ground beef will remove even more grease/fat.
Next, I whisk 1/4C flour into a 1/2C beef broth, then mix it, plus another 1C beef broth, 3t Worcestershire sauce and the onion/mushroom mixture, and add all to the browned ground beef.
Bring to a boil, stirring constantly, and boil about a minute. Stir in about 1 1/2C. sour cream.
Now, the recipe and tradition calls for the beef mixture to be served over hot egg noodles. We find it just as delicious all mixed together as a one pot meal.
Serve with a salad and buttered bread or rolls. Enjoy!!!
Till next time, friends!!!
