Last night for Christmas Eve,Eve (lol) dinner I made Beef Stroganoff. But before that in the afternoon I made some 5 Minute Fudge for my hubby whose sweet tooth was bothering him. ;-)
I had not made this Beef Stroganoff before but it was a hit and my hubby wants it again, soon!
Ingredients: 1 lb ground meat, water and 1 package of Beef Stroganoff. We decided to splurge for the holidays so instead of ground meat, we got a pound of filet mignon to use for the beef.
Directions: Brown 1 lb ground meat and drain off fat. Since I used filet, I drizzled a little olive oil into the skillet and browned the cubed cut filet but left the juices in and just lessened the amount of water slightly.
Add 4 cups water...
And the contents of the package
Stir, bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes...
or until noodles are tender.
Top with sour cream if desired. May also add pkg of peas and can of mushrooms for a different treat!
We just made it as is and it was delicious! Plate up!
Last night I made Etoufee and although I posted this a while back I did not have the photos as my husband deleted them by accident. So before that could happen again, I got all the photos on my blog! :)
This Etoufee dish can be made with shrimp, crawfish or ground sausage. I like to make it with shrimp as I never see crawfish available at the store anyway and I don't really care for ground sausage.
Ingredient: Package of Etoufee (on my website in the Cajun category), 1 lb of your choice of meat (mentioned above), 1/2 cup margarine, 1 chopped celery stalk, water and 8 oz can tomato sauce. When I went to get the tomato sauce we had none but we did have a jar of Salsa and it worked out splendidly!
Directions: Cook 1 lb of your choice of meat, in a large pot with 1/2 cup margarine and 1 chopped celery stalk You will see the celery stalk missing here and that is because my husband does not like it. Otherwise it definitely would be in there!
Add the mix , 1 1/2 cups water and 1 (8oz) can tomato sauce (in my case I added 1/2 jar of the Salsa)
Cool on low for 20 minutes. (meantime I cooked some long grain and wild rice to serve it with.
Serve over rice. Here is the finished plate! Just delicious!
