One Pot Ground Beef Stroganoff

I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of a one-pot meal. You start your base, add your liquid and boil the starch until cooked. No need to drain the pasta or potatoes; instead, they are cooked in with the liquid from the meal. Easy peasy and super flavourful! The only downside to a one-pot meal is that it takes a little longer to make. Where you could have been boiling your noodles at the same time as making the sauce, you have to wait until after the sauce is made. There is always a trade off. In this case, it was less dishes vs. more cooking time (something I’m sure hubby was more than ok with, considering the amount of dishes he does around here!)  DSC_0750This recipe was super easy and took only a few ingredients.

DSC_0751First, dice up the onions, crush the garlic, and saute them together in a large pot with a little olive oil.
