Weeknight Meals – Beef Stroganoff
Preparing a delicious, yet quick and/or easy weeknight meal for your family can be stressful. So many recipes have a ton of ingredients, many you might not keep in your pantry. Others take hours to prepare or cook. This Beef Stroganoff recipe is quick and easy, yet oh-so-delicious! Our family loves it and requests it at least once a month. I serve it with rolls to sop up the yummy sauce. It’s been modified from a Paula Deen recipe (salt has been reduced and other small modifications).
I look for the stew meat or meat cubes on sale and stock up keeping them in freezer for a quick meal. I also buy the cream of mushroom soup and broth/stock when it is on sale. Both are used frequently in my house, so I always have them on hand.
For a creamier version, you can add a few ounces of cream cheese. When you add the sour cream and cook down until it melts in with the cream cheese and sauce.
I love to take recipes that I find in cookbooks or online and modify them to my family’s tastes. I wasn’t always that confident, but through the years, I have learned that no one will die and the recipe won’t be ruined if I use a little creative license when cooking. Do you do that? or do you stick to the recipe exactly as it is?
