THIS WEEK'S CRAVINGS #51 (PASTA) and Beef Stroganoff

The Theme is: Pasta
(Please share with us your favorite Pasta Recipe!)

I LOVE pasta... I think that is an understatement. I have so many pasta recipes on my blog and I have so many more that I make and never post. I have been wanting and wanting to make Homemade Beef Stroganoff. I use to make this years ago (over 15 years ago) and it was a recipe from my father-in-law, well he has passed now and I never wrote down the recipe. I WISH - I WISH - I WISH - that I would have taken the time to write down the recipe, I wasn't much of a cook back then. But tonight I did some experimenting and came up with a very very close version.

If you have any family stroganoff recipes, I would LOVE to read them, please send me a link or write the recipe in the comments below.

This Beef Stroganoff came out great, one of my twins said "I hate Beef Stroganoff and I want to gag when I eat it, but if you make Beef Stroganoff like this, then I will eat it from now on", then she said "Beef Stroganoff has never tasted like this before, because this tastes so good. So, in my book that makes this recipe a keeper!

Beef Stroganoff
recipe made by Tina Hudgens

1 to 3 lbs beef tenderloin, cut into thin strips
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup flour
4 tbsp butter
1/2 medium onion, finely diced
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 cup thinly sliced mushrooms (or leave out if you don't like)
2 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
1 can Beef Broth (I think I will use 2 cans next time to make more creamy)
2 to 4 tbsp tomato paste
1 cup sour cream
1 pkg egg noodles

Cut steak into small thin strips. Add salt, garlic salt, paprika and pepper to the flour. Coat all of the beef strips into the flour mixture. Heat butter in a large skillet, add in the onion, garlic and mushrooms. Saute for 4 to 6 minutes. Add in the beef and cook until beef is no longer pink. Add in the Worcestershire, beef broth and tomato paste and simmer for 45 minutes.

Meanwhile, cook the package of egg noodle according to directions. When noodles and beef are finished mix all together with 1 cup of sour cream. Serve immediately, goes great with Sinful Bread.
