Okay, I must admit that I’m on my lazy chair again… So, I came out with easy fix to dinner. Still though, I would avoid boxed food just because I don’t really know what goes in it. With this dish, I put broccoli and diced of red peppers, and a 98% lean ground beef. Frankly, hubby was not too thrill about the broccoli (it’s because the only veggies he would eat is lettuce and tomatoes as he could find them in burgers!). But, I say that it was pretty good, and low calories ad fat since I used low fat sour cream and half and half instead of heavy cream. But I think the secret to the taste of this dish lays on the seasoning.
So, give it a try! It’s low fat and calories, and it tastes yummy!!
1 lb ground beef
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 medium onion
2 cloves of garlic, mince
4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed beef broth
2 tbp olive oil
1 (6 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained or 1 cups of fresh mushroom
1/3 cup fat free sour cream
1/3 cup half and half (lighter) or cream
egg noodles, cook according to the package instruction
salt to taste
Veggies (optional, I added broccoli and red peppers to mine)
In a large skillet over medium heat, heat the olive oil, and brown the ground beef. Add the garlic and onions. Set aside on one side of the pan.
Stir the flour into the juices on the empty side of the pan. Pour in beef broth and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Lower the heat. Cover and simmer for 1 hour or until the meat (and veggies, if using) is tender.
Stir in the mushrooms, sour cream, and cream/ half and half.
Just before serving, mix in the cooked noodles, and heat briefly, add salt and pepper to taste.
That was it. Pretty simple? Enjoy!!
