Sunday dinner this weekend was actually Saturday dinner. And it’s comfort food edition – with a twist. Beef stroganoff was a staple dinner growing up. I love my mom’s version and it was easy and fast for a family, but I wanted to find a version with more fresh ingredients. I found one from Publix (their Simple Meals are really great). We also had asparagus a lot, which I love, but I did it fresh: Parmesan Roasted Asparagus.
I also hate having one part of the meal ready way before the others (good thing I don’t have to host a holiday meal) – so I try really hard to have everything ready at the same time. I started by prepping the asparagus so I could just throw it in the oven. Then prepping for the stroganoff.
Then I started the pasta and the stroganoff: sautéing, cooking, combining.
I added a little Worcester sauce – it was always in mom’s recipe and I like the flavor. Next time I’ll also use a little less beef broth – it was a little more soupy than I like. I let it simmer for a little while to thicken up. Serve the stroganoff up over noodles – usually egg noodles – or rice works too. I had rotini, which I think I actually like better than the egg noodles.
Both recipes were delicious and there are plenty of leftovers! (It’ll feed about 6 people)
