I don't know many kids who do not like pasta and with a house full of boys, means meat and carbs are a good combo to fill them up. I had steak in the fridge and the boys wanted pasta so beef stroganoff was the first thing that came to my head and a meal to prep and cook in the time in takes pasta to cook is always a bonus with a house full of constantly hungry boys!
Prep time: 5 mins
Cooking time: 10 mins
Beef, thinly sliced
2 onions, sliced
4 garlic cloves, chopped
100g mushrooms, sliced
4 tbsp creme fraiche or sour cream
50ml Milk and a couple of spoons of cream if you like!
Firstly, boil a saucepan of water and start boiling the pasta. Whilst the pasta is cooking, you can cook the beef stroganoff.
Heat 2tbsp of oil in a frying pan on a relatively high heat. Add the beef and fry for 2 minutes (rare) or 4 minutes (well done). Season if you wish. When cooked, set aside.
Using the same pan, on a medium heat add and heat another 2 tbsp of oil, gently fry the onions and garlic until soft and add the mushrooms to cook. Season with salt and pepper if you wish.
Turn heat down low and add the creme fraiche and stir. Add the milk (and cream) which should create a creamy sauce. Pour the spinach in and let it wilt on a low heat to keep warm until the pasta is cooked.
Drain pasta once cooked. Add the beef to the creamy sauce, along with the pasta. Stir and serve in our Onco bamboo bowl and spoon set
