That Christmas roast has given and given and given. And still, there's a decent hunk of it, all pink and perfect, waiting in the freezer for another tour of duty.
Today's beef stroganoff was so good, Cranky and I think we'll execute a redeployment of it.
It's so simple, we always cook it without a recipe. Today Cranky added a splash of sherry for That Seventies Feeling™. What a nice flavor; has it really gone out of style?
Mumble, mumble, slivered onions, sliced mushrooms (including some chanterelles), saute, add red wine and sherry, last stir in your beef strips and some sour cream. Serve over egg noodles. Mumble, mumble.
I remember the year my mom pulled all of the beef strips from the beef stroganoff I had prepared, and refused to eat them. I think she was giving me a hard time.
But nothing can diminish the pleasure of this meal.
