Mock Stroganoff

Submitted By: John A. Jones, Jr.

    Ingredients:

  • Beef Flavored Ramen
  • 2 Tablespoons Sour Cream
  • Thick Flour water for thickening
  • 3 oz of beef (just about anykind will work, even lean hamburger)
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Margarine
  • 2/3 cup of water
  • Optional: Mushrooms

In a small saucepan cook the meat with one half tablespoon
of margarine until no longer pink. (you can add fresh mushrooms
when the meat is almost cooked or cook in a separate pan, add
canned mushrooms when the broth is boiling). Add the half cup
of water to the pan and the beef seasoning packet. Let this cook
for a couple of minutes. In the meantime cook the noodles (broken
up) and drain well. Have some flour water ready (a quater cup
of water and a couple of tablespoons of flour) pour some of this
into the boiling beef/water/seasoning, it will thicken almost
immediately. Then add the sour cream and it should get smooth.
If it is still too thick add a little more sour cream, if too
runny add more flour water. Put the drained noodles back in the
pan they were boiled in add the remaining two tablespoons of margarine.
Put on a plate and put the mock stroganoff over the noodles.
