Simple and affordable, beef stroganoff is my go-to meal. Will it be yours?
If there’s one thing that my Mom could always take care of, that would be making a nice hearty meal, even when we didn’t have a lot of food in the kitchen. There was a time when her and my dad first got together and started having kids when it was a paycheck to paycheck lifestyle that we were living. We ate a lot of casseroles, and a lot of ground beef and beef tips from leftover roasts. One thing that she made that I actually still make today is her beef stroganoff.
Simple ingredients, affordable, and super easy to make. Mom could have this beef stroganoff whipped together and on the table in less than thirty minutes, so it was a common weekday meal.
That’s why I make beef stroganoff for my family, too. Instead of going through the drive-thru three or four times a week, I will make beef stroganoff as one of our meals. The kids love it too, especially with a nice slice of garlic bread!
