I love easy meals.. now that I work so much and have so much going on, I appreciate even more getting dinner on the table faster. After being gone 9-11 hours a day, I am one tired momma... but I still love a home cooked meal. Sometimes I have all day to cook, sometimes a short amount of time. This is how this meal came about. I love beef stroganoff, but the original version with stew meat, take hours to simmer till it's tender. When I work all day I have about 1/2 hour after I walk in, and that's about it. My kids lunch times are early and they are starving, even with a snack. So I try and make it 30 minutes till dinner on the days I work. Sometimes I prep on the weekends, and cook multiple things, sometimes I just don't.
I use ground beef, or sometimes turkey or chicken in this dish. I also had a little Italian sweet sausage that I threw in, and boy did it jazz this dish up.. good choice :) as always use what you have. I used fresh mushrooms, but you can use canned, or dried onions, or garlic work too. I also serve this over mashed potatoes, but baked potatoes, cooked noodles,rice or toast and or biscuits work too. Enjoy
