Beef Stroganoff

Most Sundays, Cauli and I go over to his mom’s house for dinner. It’s a long-standing tradition with their family and one I’m happy to be a part of. Last night, we invited his mom over to our new condo for dinner. I wanted to cook something classic and easy, as I often bog myself down in newer, more complicated recipes.

 

I found the recipe for beef stroganoff at the always good Simply Recipes. The meal cooked up in less than 30 minutes, due to some minimal prep work (slicing the beef and shallots prior to cooking). I served it over some penne pasta (which was all we had on hand, though egg noodles and rice would have worked as well) with a simple romaine salad on the side. I followed the recipe exactly as it was written; however, check out the comments on the Simply Recipes site for variations.

It’s been quite a while since I last posted. Seems we got busy all of a sudden and then we wound up moving. Needless to say I stopped cooking for awhile. As a result, Cauliflower and I have been living off of take out, delivery, and fast food. I hang my whisk in shame.

But we’re now all moved in, and I’m happy to say that I’ve begun cooking in our new kitchen on our new induction range. Tonight’s dinner¬†was basically a tuna casserole, based on my previous posting of Judith Jones’ macaroni and cheese. I made the same bechemel sauce, boiled some macaroni, and added two cans of tuna and some frozen spinach (thawed). The result was good, though it was hard to taste the cheese over the flavor of the tuna. Next time I would use just one can of tuna.
