So, lockdown has me doing a couple of things; the first being so busy working on side-business projects that I normally have no time to work on that I haven’t had time to post on this blog and the second; I have been digging up my favourite recipes from when I was a kid, and cooking them up on Sundays.
I thought, considering I have completely neglected you all over the past two months, I’ll give you my beef stroganoff recipe (created by my mum/German grandma), whilst I am conjuring up my next blog post. It’s delicious, I assure you, and what better time of year to cook up such magical food?
- 60gm butter
- 1kg beef strips
- 2 large brown onions
- 1tsp salt/pepper mix
- 1 cup red wine w/ one beef stock cube
- 1-2 cups mushrooms
- 1/3 cup sour cream
- 2tbs tomato paste
- Heat butter in fry pan
- Add meat to melted butter and fry until it changes colour
- Add chopped onion and lightly fry
- Add salt/pepper, beef stock (mixed into the red wine), mushrooms and tomato paste.
- Pop a lid on and leave lightly bubbling for 30mins until meat is tender
- Just before serving, mix through sour cream
Serve with your desired carbohydrate; rice, pasta or potatoes, in whichever amount suits you. I used one cup of basmati rice
Macros per serve:
*Note that these macros don’t include added rice, potatoes, or pasta. The calories are a tad whacked (if you add them up manually) because it has red wine. Wine is it’s own ‘macro’ with 7 calories per gram, and it is not accounted for on calorie-tracking apps such as MyFitnessPal, though the calories will track just fine. If you include an alcohol-based recipe in your macros, just know that your macros will be a little off on that day.
If you try it, let me know how it goes!
