This Cubicle Chick doesn’t cook a lot at home. Blame it on my busy lifestyle or the fact that my mom didn’t cook a lot when I was younger, I’ve really worked at trying to prepare fun and healthy meals my family will love. Sometimes, I get stuck in a rut preparing the same meals over and over again because my kids are finicky and it’s hard for me to find something everyone loves. So when my grandmother gave me her recipe for Beef Stroganoff Sandwiches, I knew it was something I wanted to make at home.
And guess what? The kids loved it!
Here is what you will need for the recipe:
- 1 loaf of Italian or French bread (feeds 5)
- 1.5 pounds of Ground Sirloin (10% or less fat)
- 1 8 oz container of Sour Cream (use light for a healthier version)
- 1 bag of shredded cheese (I use Sharp Cheddar)
- 1 packet of Beef Stroganoff Seasoning Mix
- 1 tomato
- 1 onion
Total cook time (30 minutes)
Preheat oven to 350.
Begin browning your ground sirloin in a pan.
Once browned, drain the meat of access fat.
Add drained beef to pan and add Beef Stroganoff Seasoning Mix to the beef and follow instructions on the packet (which will call for Sour Cream and water).
Continue to cook ground sirloin and mixture as instructed to thicken sauce.
Slice bread and put into the oven for light toasting.
Once mixture has thickened and ground sirloin is done, remove from stove. Take out bread and begin stuffing the bread with the Beef Stroganoff Ground Sirloin. Then top the beef with shredded cheese, sliced tomato, sliced onion (you can also add sliced green peppers).
Let cheese melt on the beef and serve with your favorite side (I used french fried topped with ranch seasoning).
You can also add horseradish to the bread for a little kick.
My family loved the sandwiches and I devoured one as well. My grandmother, as always, was on point with her recipe!
This is a great meal that can be tamed for calories and fat, and is pretty much a crowd-pleaser.
I hope you try out this recipe. Let me know what you think!
