Beef Stroganoff

1lb beef
1lb mushrooms
1 medium sized onion bulb
1 cup of beef stock
1/2 cup of milk (or heavy cream)
1/4 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon cream cheese (optional)
Salt and pepper

Cut the beef into bite-size pieces and set aside. Then chop the onions and mushrooms and set aside too.

Add some vegetable oil to a pan and add the beef and half of the chopped onions. Add some salt and pepper to taste. Cook the beef till it absorbs the juices it released.

Remove the beef from the pan and add about 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil, then add the mushrooms and the other half chopped onions. Sautee for about 2 minutes.

Add the beef stock and the cooked beef. Cover the pan and allow to simmer till the beef is tender.

Then add the cream cheese (if using), milk (or heavy cream) and sour cream. Mix all the ingredients well and turn off the heat.

Serve with rice or pasta garnished with cilantro.

…And of course some lucky "lab rat" at school gets a free meal :)

Hehe, there goes the Beef Stroganoff lucky taker Yemi :)

1 cup parmesan cheese
3 tablespoons butter
Granulated Garlic
1 bulb of onions
1 medium red pepper
1 medium green pepper
Salt and pepper to taste
6oz Penne Pasta (or any of your choice).

Boil the pasta and set aside.

Cut the onions and peppers into long slices and set aside.

Melt the butter in a pan, add the onions and the chicken and cook till the chicken is cooked through. Then add the green and red peppers and sautee for about 2minutes.

Remove the chicken and veggies from the pan and set aside.

Add the heavy cream to the same pan and boil for about 3-4 minutes or till it thickens. Then add the parmesan cheese and boil till it's melted. Return the veggie/chicken mixture to pan and mix well.

Add the cooked pasta to the alfredo sauce and mix well. Enjoy your delicious chicken alfredo with your friends and loved one.

Here's one weird fact about me. I don't eat my own food 'cos by the time I'm done cooking, I am already full from the aroma. lol. Soooo, that means some lucky people in school get to enjoy the food.
