Stroganoff is comfort food for those cold autumn nights that is relatively easy to make. I thought I would change the classic stroganoff up a bit and make it into a beef and vegetable stroganoff then serve it over white rice instead of egg noodles. As I was making this, I couldn’t decide if I wanted to classify this dish as a rice bowl stroganoff or just leave the term rice bowl out of it. It very well could be a rice bowl and by all means, it is.
You can use whatever cut of beef you enjoy most. I used a top round cut that was on sale. If you use a traditionally tougher cut of meat slice it thinly against the grain to help it become a tender palate pleaser.
Sine I used a heaping pile of rice to serve this with I didn’t let the stroganoff thicken much so I would have an ample amount of sauce to soak into the rice. If you make this and find that your sauce is very runny… don’t panic, its supposed to be that way! Of course, if you serve this over noodles take the lid off and let your sauce thicken up some. In my opinion, the best stroganoff is a saucy stroganoff!
I hope you enjoy this somewhat healthier version.
