Beef Stroganoff Recipe
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
- 2 cups water
- 3 beef bouillon cubes
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 1/4 cup all-purpose white flour
- 1/2 cup cold water
- 1 to 1-1/2 cups yogurt or sour cream
Fry up your meat in a large skillet. Drain off any fat if necessary. Break the meat up into small bits as you cook it. Add the onion, garlic and mushrooms. Saute all together until the onions and mushrooms are tender.
Add the water, beef bouillon, and pepper. Bring to a boil over medium head.
Meanwhile, combine the white flour and 1/2-cup cold water in a small jar with a good lid. Screw the lid on and shake the mixture until the flour is dissolved into the water.
Pour this slurry into the boiling mixture on the stove. Simmer for a few minutes to thicken. Remove the skillet from the heat and allow it to sit until all boiling stops. Stir in the yogurt or sour cream. Mix well.
Serve over egg noodles. This recipe makes about 5 servings.
Add broccoli and carrots on the side and serve fruit for dessert.
