Beef Stroganoff

Note: This high-calorie recipe is especially for kids with cystic fibrosis (CF), who may need additional calories to meet their nutritional needs. Get a grownup's help because it requires using the stove.

This meal is easy to make. Add extra sour cream for even more calories.

Prep time: 25 minutes

What you need:

  • 2-2/3 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 8 ounces beef tips
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 package ramen noodles, beef flavor
  • 1/3 cup sour cream

What to do:

  1. Mix 1/3 cup water and flour and set aside.
  2. Cook meat and mushrooms in a small saucepan with 1 tablespoon butter until meat is no longer pink.
  3. Add 1/3 cup water and beef seasoning packet (from the ramen noodles) to the saucepan and simmer for 2 minutes.
  4. In a separate saucepan, cook noodles according to package directions. Drain noodles well. Add 2 tablespoons butter to noodles and set aside.
  5. Pour flour-water mixture into saucepan with beef mixture. This will thicken very quickly!
  6. Add sour cream and stir until mixture is smooth. If too runny, add more flour-water mixture and if too thick, add more sour cream.
  7. Serve noodles with stroganoff mixture over the top.
