Are you a food snob? I am. I admit it. I will not eat bad food. That includes going out. I have been known to send a few plates back. My husband gets upset with me, ” why do you have to be that way”? Umm, because I’m not eating ill prepared food, that’s why. Look, I get it. Cooking takes time and some patience. Some of you might be just starting to cook for yourself and others aren’t interested in cooking at all. That’s ok. If you’re just starting out, people like me will teach you. If you hate cooking, but love to eat, people like me will feed you. However, if you’ve been cooking for fifty some odd years and bragging about. You should be able to back that up! We do not make a meal for company with groundbeef and canned cream of mushroom soup over noodles. Now I like ground beef, you know, tacos, hamburgers, meatballs, meatloaf, pasta sauce, and shepherds pie. I’ve also been know to crack open a can of soup. With a grilled cheese sandwich, that’s a meal made of childhood memories. Cooking for yourself, your family, or for others doesn’t have to be complicated or difficult. I find that simple is best. Which brings us to this. Easy beef stroganoff.
Here’s what you’ll need.
2 pounds of stewing beef, 8 oz of mushrooms, 16 oz package of wide noodles, 1 quart beef broth, 1 onion, 4 cloves garlic, 1 cup sour cream, 1/4-1/2 cup ketchup, 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce,olive oil, salt, pepper, 1-2 tablespoons cornstarch.
Add beef. Add salt and pepper.
Stir and let simmer for 45 minutes. When the beef mixture has been simmering for 45 minutes. Start your water for your noodles.
While the noodles are cooking, finish the sauce.
Add 1-2 tablespoons of cornstarch to reserved broth. Mix well. Pour into beef mixture.
If you make this meal, please let me know. Did you like it, were my instructions easy to follow, or maybe you improved it.
