What happens when you prepare a 10lb roast for two? You get 9lbs of leftover meat!
I was also feeling less than enthused about preparing a gourmet feast. So I committed a crime against culinary snobbery. I made a beef "stroganoff" with SOME of the leftover beef (8lbs to go!). It was actually pretty darn good!
1/2 c. chopped onion
1lb sliced mushrooms
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. paprika
1/2 pt. sour cream
1 can cream of mushroom soup(+water)(I used a low-sodium one~ Amy's Organic is good)
1 lb leftover roast beef
Egg noodles, prepared as pkg. directs
Salt & pepper
2 tbsp. flour
1/2 c. milk
If using leftover beef, start sauteing onion in 2 tablespoons butter, Add mushrooms and cook down. Add flour, milk, water and soup. Add beef and remaining ingredients, except sour cream, dill and noodles. Cook 10 minutes. Just before serving, add sour cream and dill. Serve over noodles.
