The spices for garam masala are usually toasted to bring out more flavor and then ground. “) anyway this recipe came with a seasoning packet and I thought why not give it a try? I made a few small changes to the recipe; it was pretty good for something different.  It worked out well for something quick, and the family thought it was pretty good.

Beef Stroganoff

It has been a long time since I made Beef Stroganoff. I have had the frozen on a couple of occasions when I was in a hurry; I guess I forgot how good the home made is.

Wow; this Beef Stroganoff Recipe was addicting, it was a struggle to keep from over eating. The recipe calls for the meat to be cut into strips, but I cubed it, more like stew meat which worked out fine. If you do it this way you may have to let it cook a little longer for the meat to get tender, depending on the cut you are using. If you like Beef Stroganoff, give this recipe a try and enjoy.
