I like cooking simple meals with ingredients I really like. Tonight is Beef Stroganof.<br><br>Here's my recipe<br>---------------------<br><br>1 pound of beef<br>1 red onion - about the size of a softball<br>About 2 cups of mushrooms - Brown and Portabella are good - a mushroom with an earthy taste to it<br>1 cup of sherry - the real deal, not cooking sherry<br>1 cup of sour cream<br><br>others- salt, pepper, paprika, meat tenderizer, olive oil, beef bouline cubes.<br><br>First prepare beef. You can use an type. Cheap cuts like stewing beef or expesive cuts like beef tenderloin, work equally well. Stewing beef should be tenderized.<br><br>Slice beef into strips. For cheaper cuts tenderize with a mallet then use some meat tenderizer power - sprinkle on and let sit for 30 minutes.<br><br>Cut mushrooms into nice size chunks. Put onion in food processor and dice it.<br><br>Season beef with pepper and paprika. Quickly brown beef and then remove.<br><br>Put mushrooms, onions, about tablespoon of oil and sherry into pot or sauce pan. Cook for about 5 minutes on medium. Add beef boulien cubes to quarter cup of hot water, mix and then add to pot. Add beef. Stir, cook, stir for 2 minutes.<br><br>Let the pot simmer for 45 minutes or so, until sherry has reduced and beef is tender. Add sour cream, mix. Let stand for 5 minutes.<br><br>Serve over rice or broad egg noodles. Enjoy with a nice glass of red wine.<br><br>I started out with nothing and I still have most of it left.

THANK YOU! I hold YOU Responsible!<br>(Or at least you (and your son) helped)<br>Reading about the Griddler was a GOD SEND!<br><br>We've been using it 3-5 times a week since X-Mas.<br>I'm getting really good at adopting dishes that were tasty <br>(but not necessarily good for you) to JUST AS Tasty but better<br>for you. "SMART COOKING" lol I've yet to buy a Grilling Cookbook,<br>I've just been winging it so far... but my BF is DELIGHTED with every<br>thing we've cooked so far. At this point it would be hard to go back to eating<br>deep-fried meat-products, drenched in heavy sauces. ~ WAY TO GO ~ INDEED!<br><br><br><br>[color:green]"...or am I a butterfly that's dreaming she's a woman?"</font color=green> [color:green]. . . _ _ _ . . .</font color=green><br>
