Over the past year, there have been two things I’ve enjoyed when creating recipes:
Recipes that can be done in one pot/pan and making family favorite recipes a little bit better-for-us. I mean, I don’t go crazy and omit all fat, sugar, and deliciousness. But I do try to make some swaps to make meals a little bit lighter.
One of Forrest’s favorite meals is beef stroganoff. I’ve come to really enjoy the meal myself! We really loved this one pot chicken stroganoff I made awhile back, so I thought it was about time I shared a beef stroganoff recipe.
I was excited when I was asked to create a recipe for Jones Creek Beef. This is a small company out of Utah. They are one of the leading producers of all-natural, grass fed beef in the United States. They sell ground beef, roasts, and steaks. It can be tricky to find, but certain Walmarts here in Colorado carry the product.
The last time I had grass-fed beef, it was a little game-y tasting to me. However, that wasn’t the case with Jones Creek. It had a great flavor, produced less fat than other beef I have cooked with, and it just tasted very high quality. It was the perfect addition to this meal. You can find where the product is sold here.
Anyways, we all really enjoyed this meal. It was all made in one pot, and it was ready in about 30 minutes – perfect for an easy, delicious dinner!
