Recipe: Beef Stroganoff

Today's post is a scrumptious recipe for Beef Stroganoff! Be advised...this is not very healthy!

If you remember, I mentioned in my "March goals" post just a few days ago that I wanted to make a Beef Stroganoff recipe. Well, I ended up not making the Paula Dean recipe and instead, I made my mother-in-law's recipe! When TJ and I got married, my mom put together a cookbook for us that contained a few recipes each from my mom, my grandmother, my mother-in-law, cousins, etc. It was a wonderful gift and I still refer to it all the time (and try to add things to it rather than always looking up the recipe online).

As I'm sure you've guessed by now, one of the recipes inside this cookbook was my mother-in-law's Beef Stroganoff. TJ and I have been married for 9 years, and I had never made it! Honestly I should be ashamed. There are quite a few things in there I've never made. Perhaps that should be a new goal...

Sorry! Got a little off track there! This beef stroganoff was easy and also tasty. TJ's reaction, though, was better than anything else. He said it is one of his favorites. I didn't take any pictures along the way, but you have the final outcome above!

Here's what you'll need:
1 lb. ground beef
1 white onion
2 8-oz. cans of tomato sauce
6 oz. of sour cream
4 oz. cream cheese, room temp
8 oz. wide noodles
Shredded cheddar cheese

Chop your onion and brown with the ground beef. Add some pepper while cooking. Drain, then add the tomato sauce. Mix thoroughly and allow this to simmer.

In a separate pot, boil your wide noodles.

After the meat mixture has simmered and noodles are almost done, add the cream cheese and sour cream to the meat mixture. Mix thoroughly. Drain noodles once they are complete.

Layer meat mixture and noodles in a 9x13 glass pan. Top with shredded cheddar. Bake at 350* for approximately 25 minutes. 

Serve with vegetables.

Cook's Notes: Next time, I may sub Greek yogurt in place of the sour cream. I would also like to try this with mushrooms but I will likely let Mr. Teej decide. Either way, we'll be having this again!

Definitely let me know if you try this, and what you think!
Happy Hump Day, everyone!
