Well you know how it is, you have had a busy day at work or doing laundry or volunteering or playing 18 holes of golf or in my case, reading a romance novel…anyway you want to get dinner on the table but you don’t want to take forever doing it. This is my go-to recipe for super busy days. It just takes a few minutes to throw together and it tastes really good, like you actually did some serious cooking. Just have the ingredients in your pantry and freezer and you are good to go.
Deet’s Quickie Ground Beef Stroganoff
1 T olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
4 oz. can of sliced mushrooms (drained)
S&P to taste
Garlic powder to taste
1 T Ketchup (the ketchup was camera shy)
1 T Worcestershire sauce
1 12oz jar beef gravy (I use Heinz)
1/2 cup sour cream
8 oz. dried egg noodles
1. First empty the grapes in the fridge out of the colander into a bowl and wash the colander. You will need this colander for draining the egg noodles. If your colander is already clean and free of fridge grapes then skip this step. 🙂
3. Place the olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat and crumble in the beef. Saute until brown, add onions and mushrooms and cook for a few minutes. add S&P, garlic powder, Worcestershire and Ketchup. Now stir in the jar of gravy. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a low simmer. Cover the pan and cook until the egg noodles are done.
4.The water should be boiling so cook you egg noodles.(usually about 7-8 min.).
At this point hubby brought in a beautiful gardenia from our back yard. Yes, we live in the South where it is warm.
5. When the noodles are almost ready stir the sour cream into the meat mixture and just heat through. Drain the noodles and top with the meat mixture. Voila! Done!
When I took this photo at our table I told hubby “show us your six-pack”. He replied “I only have a one-pack”. This is why I love him.
