One Pot Ground Beef StroganoffPosted: December 6, 2015
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!) This recipe was super easy and took only a few ingredients.
Drain the grease and add the mushrooms. The recipe called for crimini mushrooms and I suggest going the extra mile and some picking for this dish. They added a wonderful texture and flavour that is not quite there with button mushrooms.
One Pot Ground Beef Stroganoff
You will need:
2 medium onions
4 garlic cloves
3 tsp olive oil
1 lb ground beef
3 tsp paprika
1 container of crimini mushrooms
4 cups low or no sodium beef broth
One 370 gram bag of egg noodles (or 3 cups)
5 tbsp sour cream
Begin by dicing up the onions, crushing the garlic, and sauteing them together in a large pot with the olive oil. Add ground beef, paprika and brown. Drain the grease. Add mushrooms and cook until tender. Add broth and noodles and bring to a boil. Boil on medium heat until noodles are cooked and strogranoff has thickened (about 10-15 minutes.) Stir in sour cream and serve hot. Enjoy!
