The original comes from Tricia over at Onceamonthmom.com. I've been trying to do a bit of once a month cooking, but having to cook one meal a day for my 365 challenge means I have to do these recipes cut in half or quarters. So, here's one Tricia multiplies and freezes ahead of time.
1 pound/bag beef crumbles
1/4 C butter
1/2 pound mushrooms, sliced
1/2 C onions, sliced
1 garlic clove, minced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
11/2 C water, divided
1 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 Tbsp. red wine vinegar (I mixed cranberry juice and white vinegar)
2 tsp. "beef" or vegetable bouillon (or 2 cubes)
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 C (8 ounces) sour cream
8 oz. cooked egg noodles
Add 1/4 C butter and about 1/2 C water to a large skillet. Cook mushrooms, onion and garlic until tender; stir in flour. Add additional 1 C water, lemon juice, vinegar, bouillon, salt and pepper; bring to a boil. Cook and stir for 2 minutes. Stir in sour cream and beef; heat through (do not boil). Serve over cooked hot egg noodles.
This is the second best meal of the week. After the fabulous tamales. And, for the first time in a long time, we finished the whole meal in one sitting! Of course, I made a half portion to do it. But, wow, no leftovers! The only bad news is this means the yummy noodles and sauce won't make a reappearance in a leftovers casserole later on.
