Volume two in a series I call, “Things your white, middle-class, youths are like to eat”. It centers around my experiences making colorful cornucopias of flavor and being greeted with general trepidations after which I usually have to coax my unsurprisingly uncultured roommates to eat. Aside from being that it’s ridiculous that one should have to convince others to perform basic life-sustaining tasks. I also find it useful to make more gray colored meals that also taste wonderful that will further drive home the point that, “Yes, I know what I’m doing”.
Also, I apologize for the small hiatus. Too many irons in the fire even with my keeping a few in the kitchen. More on all that later.
Hamburger Stroganoff – Not from a box and just as easy.
- 1lb of Ground Beef
- 1 C. Sour Cream
- A 10 3/4 oz. Can of Cream of Chicken soup
- 1/2 C. Sweet Onion (Chopped)
- A 7 oz. Can of Mushrooms (stems and pieces, drained)
- 2 T. Flour
- 1/4 C. Butter
- 2 Garlic Cloves (Minced)
- 1 t. Salt (not pictured)
- 1/2 t. Pepper (not pictured)
- Fresh Parsley (Chopped) [also, not pictured]
- and some hot cooked noodles.
First thing you’re going to do is to brown your ground beef with the onions and butter.
While you’re waiting for this meat to change colors you should really start boiling some noodles.
Notice, I said nothing about draining. Yup. I hope you enjoy small portions and running as much as I do. Because eating food this tasty requires some preventative measures to ensure ones’ heart doesn’t explode.
After the meat is browned stir in the Mushrooms, Flour, Salt, Pepper, and Garlic. Keep it cooking while stirring constantly for five minutes. Then stir in the soup and heat to a boiling while stirring constantly. Reduce heat and simmer for ten minutes.
Once ten minutes is up add the sour cream and heat through.
Once it’s all hot and your noodles are done. Serve the sauce over noodles and sprinkle some of that fresh parsley on top. Serve, eat, plan run.
I wasn’t kidding when I said you should run and eat smaller portions. I’m saying this from my standpoint. I love food. I love eating it and I want to continue eating it. I don’t want to eat it salt free. I don’t want to be vegan. I don’t want to drain away that delicious fat. So I take care to make sure that I can continue eating whatever I want. I am master of my body! Now someone hand me another beer!
