Ingredients:  Ground beef, onion, garlic, beef broth, red wine, sour cream.

Embellishments: Added an extra onion, 1 lb. mushrooms, 1 red bell pepper, heavy cream, cornstarch to thicken, nutmeg, fresh parsley for garnis.  Eliminated the spaghetti squash and substituted Shirataki noodles instead.

Prep: Easy, maybe 15 minutes of dicing, etc.

Cook time:  30 minutes

.

Comments:  The embellishments were pretty severe for this dish.  First of all, the original recipe didn’t call for any mushrooms !  WHAT ?  Secondly it called for an entire cup of red wine….I felt that would overpower any of the flavors of the food itself, so reduced that a bit and compensated by adding more beef broth.  The side dish was spaghetti squash which I don’t care for, so instead added one package of Tofu based Shirataki noodles to the stroganoff towards the end of the cooking, and served with broccoli instead.  Note that the recipe “as is” from Emeals was totally unremarkable.  The addition of 1/4 cup heavy cream and nutmeg at the end was my attempt at trying to create a more “rich” flavor.  I also needed cornstarch to thicken the dish at the end since 1.5 cups of liquid was far too much.  Thumbs down.

    Love the idea of using spaghetti squash instead of egg noodles for beef stroganoff. Pasta is the carb I struggle with avoiding the most! Will have to give this substitution a try with my stroganoff recipe. 🙂
