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 :)
