Hello all! OK, so if you have perused the blog, you would have noticed my love for food and recipes. Yes I love to cook, yes I collect cookbooks, and I have probably 600+ recipes pinned on my boards on pinterest. Cooking and baking are two of my favorite things to do.
One of my favorite dishes to eat is beef stronganoff. Except I have never had the traditional dish. My mom spins stuff and we call it the poor mans dish. Because we cant afford a lot of stuff, so we improvise. And the way times are there is nothing wrong with that! There is nothing wrong with cooking semi-homemade either. We lead busy lives, we need some help every once and again. So I am sharing with you a spin on my mom poor mans beef stroganoff.
Note: I have never made this dish before. I usually just call my mom and up and say, make me beef stroganoff PLEASE! So I was looking at her cookbook and found an easy recipe on it. Cept I didn't copy it down. I did it from memory and made my own. I think it came out like beef strogonaff. Yummy!
1 lb. ground turkey
1 pint mushroom, whole or sliced (you get the same amount for the same price, so buy the sliced)
1 small onion, chopped
egg wide noodles
salt, pepper and garlic powder
1 c. lite sour cream
2 cubes of beef bouillon
Saute sliced mushrooms in some oil. Then add your chopped onion. Saute until nice and soft (onions will be translucent). When those are done put them in a bowl to the side. Add your ground turkey and crumble. Add salt, pepper and garlic powder to taste. Towards the end of cooking the ground turkey I added a couple of pours of red wine to "deglaze" the pan. Scrape up the brown yummy bits on the bottom of the pan. I cook on high towards the end to burn off any liquid so I didn't have to drain it. (now if you use ground beef and its fatty then you will have to drain).
So while you are doing that, boil your noodles. Make sure to salt your water. Cook till al dente (which means to the tooth). When that is done add butter to it. I used maybe 3 tablespoons.
Now I had beef cubes, so I took a little bit of the boiling water for the noodles and threw it over the cubes to dissolve during this whole process. You might have to help it along and crush it here and there. I used maybe 1/4 c. of boiling water. When that is nice and dissolved add it to 1 c. sour cream. Then whisk to incorporate.
Add the mushroom mixture to your turkey mixture and heat up. Add your sour cream mixture to your turkey mixture and stir. You can either mix the noodles in or set the turkey mixture on top.
Any one have any easy yummy recipes they want to share?
