Easy Ground Beef Mock Stroganoff With Peas

"This is an easy weeknight family dinner that is sure to please kids of all ages. I call this "mock" stroganoff because it uses milk instead of sour cream and the fresh addition of baby peas. My kids tore into this as though they were ravenous beasts who hadn't eaten in days--a scene certain to make any mother of picky children smile proudly! I hope you enjoy as much as our family does!"

    I changed the dried onion and garlic for fresh, added a handful of sliced mushrooms and upped the paprika to 2 teaspoons. This meal was super easy and very tasty, there wasn't a scrap left in anyone's bowl. I will be making this again.

    A lovely savoury mince - but definitely not a stroganoff! Toddler and hubby liked this, and it was quick and easy - but I was a bit disappointed it was nowhere near a stroganoff flavour. Don't know what was missing - tomato? More paprika? Nice enough but not what I was expecting.


<p>My name is Rebecca, but my family and friends call me Becky. I am&nbsp;33 years old and live in Rochester, New York, USA. I am a life-long resident of Western New York and can't say as I'd ever want to live anywhere else. I grew up on a small dairy farm in rural Western New York and love country living. Although my husband and I live in a suburb right now, we hope someday to move back to our roots and live a peaceful country life. <br /><br />My husband and I have been married for 10 years.&nbsp; We have a beautiful 5-year-old&nbsp;daughter and a 3-year-old&nbsp;son.&nbsp;&nbsp;I am amazed at how quickly our kids are&nbsp;growing and developing.&nbsp; I read a lot about and hold my own personal skepticism regarding the affects of additives such as&nbsp;preservatives,&nbsp;hormones, artificial colorings, artificial sweeteners, caffeine, allergens, etc.&nbsp; With the increasing number of children and adults with food allergies, I am suspicious that the last century&nbsp;of our nation's food industry improvements have contributed.&nbsp; I'm doing the best I can to protect my family&nbsp;from the risks, but it is difficult to avoid every additive.&nbsp; I have friends and family with food allergies and know how difficult it is to cope with food restrictions. I enjoy the challenge of&nbsp;cooking for those with food allergies but can't imagine making it an every-day affair.</p> 8727502"
