Recipe: Paprika Rice Stroganoff
This is an easy and healthful version of the traditional stroganoff recipes…. brown rice is the key!
Prepare 6 servings of brown rice (long grain,basmati or other) according to package directions. For extra flavor, use low-fat chicken or vegetable broth instead of water, and omit the salt.
While rice is cooking, prep the rest of the ingredients:
1 lb beef (top round or sirloin), sliced into thin strips [note: the beef is optional; if you omit it, increase the mushrooms to 4 cups]
3 cups halved mushrooms (white button, baby portabellos or a mix of wild mushrooms)
3 cloves garlic, sliced thin
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 red pepper, cored and cut into strips
In a large sautee pan, brown the beef in olive oil. Remove from pan.
Sautee the vegetables in the same pan until softened but still firm.
Add 2 tsps. Racy Paprika spice blend from Your Spice of Life.
When rice is ready, add to vegetable mixture. Stir in the cooked beef.
Taste for seasoning; add sea salt or slightly more Racy Paprika according to your preference.
When ready to serve, mix in 1 cup cup sour cream. Stir to coat the rice mixture, then serve immediately.
(thickened plain yogurt may be substituted for the sour cream)
