I had my Sunday Supper all planned out this week. I decided I'd try a new recipe for beef stroganoff. I got my dry aged beef, made my noodles and had everything simmering away on the stove. Then I got to the last step where you add the sour cream and.... crud! separating cream in hot beef sauce. Not pretty. OK, I thought, maybe it will still taste good. Well, the sauce was good. But the beef was tough. This was not the application for that particular cut of beef (I used stew beef; next time I think I'd go with tenderloin). Or, it needed to cook much, much longer (all day in the crockpot?). But, it was a little too late for that.
So, Mr. ValleyWriter and I basically ate sauce (with broken sour cream, i.e. white flecks) and noodles for dinner tonight. *Wahn wahn* A little disappointing... but into everyone's kitchen a little disaster must fall, I suppose. Right? Make me feel better here, people! *wink*
I think we'll be heading out to La Fiorentina tonight for dessert, which makes everything better. Hopefully next week's supper will turn out better!
