Canadian Living Beef Stroganoff
Found on page 15 of the Jan/Feb 2018 Edition of Canadian Living, this recipe was a must try. I have tried making Beef Stroganoff before, but I am always trying new recipes to experiment with.
I really enjoyed this recipe, although while it is called “Speedy Beef Stroganoff” in Canadian Living, it took me longer to cook than anticipated. This may be due to having a toddler constantly asking to be in my arms. I am sure for anyone focusing solely on cooking, it will take the 45 minutes to prepare.
All credit for the full recipe below, goes to Canadian Living Magazine. I changed a few things while cooking, to suit my preference as stated in the notes, but full inspiration goes to CL Magazine.
The next time I make it, I would definitely alter a few things.
-I would use fresh garlic rather than garlic powder, and I may even add paprika/red chili flakes for some heat.
-Adding green peas is also on my mind for the next time, to add a bit of a crunch.
-The steak, while delicious, would be cut into cubes rather than slices. I would definitely want more meat in it the next time.
-I also mixed the noodles in the mixture, rather than serving the mixture on top of the noodles. This way, the noodles get covered in the delicious sauce.
