I never used to cook, mostly because I didn’t know how. I’ve done a lot of experimenting in the kitchen over the last 4 years and I’ve come to really enjoy getting creative in the kitchen. I haven’t gotten very good at planning a weeks worth of meals and getting all the right groceries, instead I get lots of veggies I love, and high quality meat then throw things together.
Do you use recipes? I look at recipes for inspiration then work with what I have. The other day I had frozen ground beef, and we didn’t have beef for a while, so I chose it for dinner. I didn’t feel like having tomato sauce, and I had egg noodles. Beef stroganoff came to mind, I’ve never made beef stroganoff, so I googled it and found a basic recipe. Turns out it’s made with striploin beef, and typically only contains mushrooms and onions. I loosely followed the recipe with the ingredients I had and what I wanted to eat. It turned out great, so great I want to share it with you, and I will make this again.
Ground beef 1 pound
1 clove Garlic
Broth (beef broth, I only had Pho Vegetable broth, it was still really yummy)
Sour Cream (optional) or plain greek yoghurt
Cook ground beef in a skillet that you can add everything to over medium heat. Boil water in a pot for the egg noodles. Chop up all you veggies. Once the ground beef is mostly cooked add the onions and garlic, once the onions are soft, add the mushrooms. Once the mushrooms are soft add a tablespoon of butter and the chopped up zucchini. Once the butter is melted add 2 cups of broth. Most recipes will call for beef broth, I used Pho Vegetable broth, because it’s what I had, any veggie broth will do. Cover and allow to come to a boil. Once the broth comes to a boil add the broccoli, leave uncovered to simmer and reduce. Add your egg noodles to the boiling water, let cook, then drain. Turn the heat off the beef and veggies, add 1/2 cup of sour cream, stir in, serve over egg noodles. Enjoy!
