A great way to revamp left overs and put a comforting and filling but quick meal on the table.
approx. 1 to 2 lbs meat or poultry
approx. 1 to 3 cups vegetables
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup choice: broth (beef, vegetable, chicken) or water
1 can condensed cream soup and/or 1/2 cup choice: broth (beef, vegetable, chicken), milk, half n half, cream, or evaporated milk
salt and pepper to taste
other seasonings to taste (optional)
1 Tbsp (per pound of beef) Worcestershire sauce (optional)
See my blog for the many options available. You are limited only by the ingredients on hand and your imagination!
Basically, melt a little butter in which to sauté onions and things like shredded fresh carrots, bell peppers, mushrooms and set aside. Alternately sauté onions, minced garlic, and mushrooms to add to meat while cooking for extra flavoring. And after meat is cooked stir in any remaining sautéed vegetables.
Brown meat, stir in remaining sautéed and any other chosen vegetables, and add 1/2 cup of either broth or water. Simmer until raw or frozen vegetables are done and tender or canned and previously cooked vegetables or left overs are heated through.
Add your choice of: 1 can condensed cream of chicken (for poultry) or mushroom soup, and/or 1/2 cup choice: broth (beef, vegetable, chicken), milk, half n half, cream, or evaporated milk, season to taste, and simmer for about five minutes.
Stir in 1 cup sour cream and simmer for a minute or two more. Serve over choice of any pasta, quinoa, rice, or any variety of bread that has been freshly toasted, or even grits.
