Each weekend I try to do my cooking for the week ahead. I find that this sets me up for success and helps me avoid trips through drive-thru windows. A few weeks ago I got so hungry that I found myself eating Capt'n D's. That's not even good quality seafood. If I'm going to spend the calories to have that kind of thing, its going to be high quality, darn it! Recently, I had a craving for beef stroganoff. Whatev. I'm flexible.
I found a recipe on Epicurious.com. You can check it out by clicking HERE.
I did a decent bit of editing to the recipe in an attempt to get the calorie count down. The original recipe calls for whipping cream, oil, and close to an entire stick of butter. In my attempts to slim down, I don't need to eat more then one serving of something like that...and since I wasn't planning on sharing the yield from this dish, I made some little edits.
Here are the ingredients:

Now for a close up of the ingredients:
Instead of using oil to brown the meat, I made up some extra beef broth and used that to keep the pan moist. The meat just needed a quick sear on each side. I placed a bowl on the stove to hold the meat until I was ready to add it back in. It also collected some yummy juices that I poured in as well. Nice extra flavor.
Next step was to cook down the onions and mushrooms
Just writing this makes me want some more stroganoff. Yummy.
