As promised on facebook, here's the Savory Beef recipe from Once-A-Month Cooking.
2 lbs. Beef round tip steak (I used stew beef/bought on sale)1 C sliced fresh mushrooms
1 sliced onion3 TBS vegetable oil
3 TBS all-purpose flour2 C water & 2 beef bouillon cubes (I used 2 C beef broth)
2 TBS tomato paste1 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp dried oregano1/4 tsp dill weed
2 TBS Worcestershire sauce1 8 oz package wide egg noodles*
Cut beef into thin strips (if using tip steak). Sprinkle beef with pepper, and set aside in a cool place. In a heavy skillet, saute mushrooms and onions in oil until golden; remove them from skillet. Put meat in same skillet; cook and stir beef on all sides until brown. Remove meat and set aside.Blend flour into the oil in skillet, gradually adding water/bouillon or broth. Stir constantly until smooth and slightly thick. mix in tomato paste, dry mustard, oregano, dill week and Worcestershire sauce. Stir meat, mushrooms and onions into sauce. Cool meat mixture and freeze. (After the mixture cools for a few minutes, I place it all in a zip-lock bag to store in the freezer).
To prepare for serving, thaw beef. *Prepare noodles according to package directions. Heat beef in saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly until it's bubbly. Serve meat over noodles. Makes 6 servings.
Use any leftover beef for sandwiches.
Tomorrow I will have a guest blogger, Roxanne Peterson, offer some advice on saving money by buying items second hand. Roxie has written extensively for numerous financial planning and mortgage industry websites.
Stop by tomorrow to read Roxie's suggestions on how to buy second-hand without sacrificing quality.
