Okay I just discovered this recipe today and made it for dinner. Everyone loved it, including Landon (who is super picky). It is one of Emeril's recipe and it is super quick and easy.
In the past every time I thought of Beef stroganoff I thought of Hamburger Helper and I wanted to hurl. I am glad Emeril changed my mind on Beef Stroganoff.
1 lb lean ground beef
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
1/2 tsp. Essence (recipe to follow)
1 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup sliced white button mushroms (I left out the fungus and it was still good)
Wide egg noodles, cooked
1/2 cup beef broth
1/4 plus cup of sour cream
Emeril's Essence Creole Seasoning
2.5 Tbs. paprika
2 Tbs. salt
2 Tbs. garlic powder
1 Tbs. black pepper
1 Tbs. onion powder
1 Tbs. cayenne pepper (Grandpa Palmer would like this!)
1 Tbs. dried oregano
1 Tbs. dried thyme
Combine all ingredients thoroughly.
Season beef with salt, pepper and Essence
In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the seasoned beef and cook stirring until browned. Drain excess oil. Add the onions and cook stirring until soft. Add mushrooms and garlic and cook, stirring until the mushrooms have released their juices, about 2 minutes. Add the egg noodles, beef broth and sour cream. Cook, stirring until the mixture thickens slightly, 5-6 minutes.
