Day 243: Beef Stroganoff…Kind of

Yield: 2 people
Time (Start to Finish): 40 min

1 flank steak
1 cup mushrooms, brown
1 cup chopped chard
1 cup white rice
3 cups beef stock
½ cup white wine
salt and pepper
1 shallot, small
1 garlic clove
olive oil
2-4 Tbsp flour

1. I used left over steak, but you can brown the steak in chunks in a pan, cooked to med rare, salt and pepper
2. In a pot, cook the shallot and garlic in a little olive oil until soft
3. Add the rice and cook for 30 sec
4. Add the beef stock and cook until the rice is cooked through. There should be left over stock
5. Add the white wine and taste. Add salt and pepper to taste
6. Add the mushrooms, chopped in slices
7. Add the flour, which will thicken the sauce. You want it to be creamy
8. Add the steak and stir until the it is still liquidly, but thick also
9. Add the chard at the end, stir and serve

Notes: Left over steak from the sandwiches last night, and a fridge full of veggies my roommate left when she went out of town, and I though, what can I make?? Stroganoff is usually on noodles, so this is a little twist on that. It is also a good way to clean out the fridge and use up some veggies. You can always throw veggies in a pot, add some stock and rice, and turn out a healthy meal. I shared this with the roomie, and some jeopardy. I hope you like it!
