Posts Tagged ‘Mushrooms’

I remember the days of Hamburger Helper Stroganoff. It was a mainstay in my pantry when I was in my 20’s, and yes, even into my 30’s. I loved the stuff!

It’s one of my favorite comfort foods, and once I began upping my cooking game, I knew I had to find a way to make my own stroganoff recipe.

I call it Mushroom Stroganoff, but you’ll notice I used my favorite meat crumbles, and you could also use browned chicken, or browned ground beef, or or leave out the protein all together. It’s up to you.

So, let’s get to it.

First, cook one 16 ounce package of egg noodles. Be sure to cook them al dente, because they will cook more when you add them to the sauce.

Now, if you’re going to use meat, brown it, and then set it aside.

Next, chop and onion and slice your mushrooms. I did two medium onions and two packages of mushrooms. You can use more or less… it’s up to you.

Put them in a large pan (I use cast iron), and sauté them in two tablespoons of olive oil on med-high heat until the onions are just tender. Then, remove them from the pan, and set aside.

Now, it’s time to make a roux.

In the same pan, melt two tablespoons of butter and add two tablespoon of flour. Whisk until you get a smooth mixture. If it’s dry at all, add more butter. While continuing to whisk, cook for at least one or two minutes.

Now add four cups of milk and whisk away. Keep the heat on med-high and whisk continuously. This will thicken the sauce.

Once it gets thick, so it can cover the back of a wooden spoon, it’s time to add flavor and spices.

The spices are: salt, pepper, onion powder, chopped garlic, red pepper flakes. Also, add dashes of worcestershire sauce.

Mix it all together, and then add 1 cup of sour cream, and whisk it in. As you can see, I use Cabot. Seriously, if you’ve never tried their sour cream (or any of their products), do it! It’s simply amazing and SO MUCH better than any other product out there.

 Now, taste it. What do you think it needs? I usually have to add a little more salt and red pepper flakes.

After adjusting the flavor to your liking, add the mushrooms, onions, meat (if you’re using it), and grated pecorino romano cheese. Stir it all together.

Now, add your cooked egg noodles and stir them in.

Time to put it in a bowl and devour!

Of course, I topped mine with extra grated pecorino romano and parsley.
