Beef Stroganoff with Pasta: 30-Minute Meal
Beef stroganoff is a star among beef recipes. It may have aristocratic beginnings (it’s said that it was named after 19th-century Russian Count Pavel Stroganoff), but this hearty combination of lean beef in a sour-cream sauce with onions and mushrooms is a quick and easy anytime meal. And it doesn’t take forever to make. Here’s a Beef Stroganoff with Pasta recipe that takes just a half-hour to prepare.
The recipe for this classic dish has evolved over time, and although tomato paste wasn’t used in the original, it adds flavor and has been added since the mid-1900s. Horseradish and dill also perk things up. Broccoli wasn’t in the original either, but its flash of green, its healthy crunch, and its mellow flavor are an unexpected complement to Stroganoff. Served with egg noddles, it makes a one-dish meal, which saves you time on hectic weekdays.
There are many ways to make Beef Stroganoff. Try one of these variations:
• Beef and Portobello Mushroom Stroganoff (this one is made with flank steak and has a touch of cognac)
