Meat is a staple in our house. While The Farmer will eat anything I cook, his favorite meals revolve around comfort food. And I am lucky enough to have a gigantic cookbook of recipes my mom gave me that are all the comfort foods I grew up with! She literally took all of her recipe box, typed up the recipes and put them in a 3-ring binder. I probably have 1000 recipes from her cookbooks. Best gift ever!
My Mom's Beef Stroganoff recipe is one I remember her making but never needed a recipe. It's a dump and go recipe. And that's how I cook many of my meals. Dump, taste, add something, taste, add something else, you get the point.
Last week I had to be out of town for work. And just in case The Farmer thought he should take the Panda, Monkey and Lion Cub to that awful drive-thru with the golden arches, I made a few meals that he only had to reheat. And my kids devour this Beef Stroganoff. But they eat anything!
First, prepare a bag of wide egg noodles. They take about 7 minutes to boil. Drain.
Then brown a package of hamburger. Drain off the grease. Return to pan and add a 16 oz container of fat free sour cream, a can of fat free cream of mushroom soup and a can of mushrooms. Stir together.
Serve the beef mixture over noodles! That's it! It doesn't look appetizing, but it really tastes good. And it's better than going to a fast food drive thru!
