Just look, look, at the intense concentration in his face. (Oh ,mercy me, those cookbooks you see are only about 1/8th of my collection. ) That's not even including all the magazines Ive accumulated! Yikes. By the way, when my FFH cooks, and I love when he cooks, I love when he cooks, I do so love when he cooks, he must have this to help him through the task. Yes, a nice COLD one. Here is the meat as he continues to cut it the way he likes. Only he can do this job, you know. Season the meat thoroughly with salt and pepper!! In a large skillet over medium heat
Melt the butter and brown the beef strips quickly,baby. Then, push the beef strips to one side. Add the scallions, and cook slowly for a few minutes, then push to the side with the beef strips. FFHs hand. Don't you adore the way he holds the wooden spoon? I like my wooden spoons. (Those tiny dark browned burnt bits you may see are sooo going to aid in making the gravy spectacular) Now, pour in your beef broth and bring to a boil. Stir constantly. Lower the heat and stir in your mustard. ( FFH insists on using regular Guldens, but maybe, just maybe dijon would be ok too??) Hey , who am I to argue when he is cooking. Have I mentioned I love when my FFH cooks for me? Cover and simmer for 1 hour or until the meat is tender. Meanwhile, take your fresh mushrooms, and cook them in about 2 tablespoons of butter,
OK, so they aren't evenly browned. I did this part of dinner for my FFH. I am NOT a chef. I just enjoy cooking. Love everything about it. Especially the eating part. Five minutes before serving, stir in your mushrooms, the sour cream, and your wine.
We prefer any type Pinto Grigio. Well, we really prefer Santa Margherita, (sp?)but this was on sale, and it tastes , yep, tastes marvelous.
To serve, we place BROAD egg noodles on a plate, top with the stroganoff, and the yummy gravy, taste of salt, and loads of freshly ground black pepper. See?Geez, I guess FFH is correct. Really does need a splash of color. Don't tell him I said he was right. I love when my FFH cooks for me. Thanks FFH for a tasty meal. I'll be looking forward to the next one. Next time I'd like you to wear your Firefighter boots while cooking, OK? Hey, how did he get in here? Well, since he did, meet Clooney our new puppy. Yes, I named him Clooney, and no, it wasn't after George. I mean do you really think I'd want to think of George Clooney every time I say, Sit Clooney, Good Boy Clooney, Come here Clooney, or BEG Clooney. BEG Clooney. BEG Clooney.C'mon now. Hope you all have a nice day. I have to go give Clooney a bath. Sigh.
