What's for dinner

I decided to make Beef Stroganoff last night for dinner. Its a meal I used to make when Jonathan and I were dating and somehow I forgot about it until a couple of weeks ago. It's sooo easy and delicious so I thought I'd post the recipe in case anyone else would like to try it! It's nice because everything goes into one pot = less dishes to wash. I got this recipe from Busy People's Low Fat Cookbook. The thing I like about the recipes in this book is that they all have 7 ingredients or less, are low-fat with the nutrition facts, and they only take 15 to 20 minutes!

This is what you need (plus some beef):
Cooking the meat, onions, garlic, and mushrooms (Sometimes I throw in some fresh ones too. If your husband is like mine, he will pick them out and throw them on your plate!)
Then add beef broth, egg noodles, and sour cream.
It's as easy as that! A delicious meal in under 20 minutes!

Here's the recipe:

1 lb eye of round beef, cut into 1/2-inch cubes (I just use Laura's Lean ground beef)
1 medium onions (I only use about a third of an onion or it's too onion-y for me)
1 4oz can sliced mushroom stems and pieces, not drained
2 teaspoons minced garlic
3 Cups beef broth
4 Cups egg noodles
1 Cup fat-free sour cream
Salt and pepper (DO NOT forget the salt! It is very necessary. Without it there is NO flavor in this dish. Billie - I'm lookin at you! :) )

-Over medium heat cook the meat, onions, mushrooms, and garlic
-Once meat is cooked, add broth, noodles, and sour cream. Turn the heat to high.
-Once boiling, turn heat to low. DO NOT COVER! Cook on low for 5-7 minutes.
-Remove from heat and let sit for 4 to 5 minutes to thicken. Add salt and pepper.

I tried your recipe last night. It was tasty! My husband liked it, too. He was so excited that I cooked with beef instead of chicken or fish! Thanks for sharing!!!
