For Valentine’s Day this year we wanted to do something low key at home, rather than going out to a fancy restaurant. It’s freezing cold and snowing outside, so what’s better than meaty comfort food like beef stroganoff with egg noodles? I searched online for a while and finally settled on Tyler Florence’s recipe — it requires the beef to cook for a good two hours, unlike many other recipes that are 30 minutes or less. I like my beef to be melt-in-your-mouth tender! This dish was incredibly hearty and cozy, kind of like a warm blanket of meaty, noodle-y deliciousness. Happy Love Day to all!
We’re starting off with a beautiful four pound chuck roast
Cut the meat into cubes and generously season with salt & pepper
Get a nice sear on each piece
The meat is browned and beautiful
Onions and bourbon have been added, time to pour in the beef stock
Time to simmer for two hours
While the beef is simmering, prepare the mushrooms
Dijon mustard and sour cream make this dish super tasty!
Add the mushroom mixture to the pan and mix well
What a gorgeous sight! (And it smells great, too)
Last step is to cook the egg noodles and coat them with butter
Hope you’re hungry because it’s time to eat!
