No, I haven't forgotten about food porn

Ever since Cpl. Wolves and Married Into Wolves tied the knot, Mrs. Wolves and I have been going over to their condo on Sunday evenings and conducting cooking classes, as neither is particularly experienced in the kitchen. I bring the ingredients, a copy of the recipe, and then put the dish together with Married Into Wolves. Last weekend, they were both a little peaked, so we didn't go, but on request I went ahead and made the recipe I was planning on and let Mrs. Wolves take it over. TMI? Fine, just explaining why certain things, such as a plate shot, are not included in this post. Without further ado, I present beef stroganoff.

You will start with 2 tablespoons of butter, a pound or so of round steak, salt and pepper, a package of dry onion soup mix, 2/3 cup of water, a 3 or 4 ounce jar or sliced mushrooms, or the equivalent in fresh mushrooms, a cup of sour cream and a bag of egg noodles:


Cut the round steak into roughly 1-inch pieces:


Melt the butter in a decent-sized frying pan:


Brown the meat on medium to medium-high heat:


Add the mushrooms:


Add the water

Add the onion soup mix:


Stir it up nicely on low to medium-low heat until the mixture melds and the beef is tender. This will probably take as long as 1-1/2 hours:


When the beef, she is tender, add the sour cream:


Mix it up right and allow the mixture to warm through, but not boil:


At some point before you added the sour cream, you boiled those egg noodles. Serve the stroganoff over egg noodles and dig in. Bon appetit.
