I am a selective carnivore. That’s right. I only eat the animals I like, such as chicken, fish, cute baby lambs and occaionally pigs. Generally I cannot stand beef meat, but I like the flavor of beef. So what to do when I want Beef stroganoff without the beef but still have the chest-hair-curling flavor of delicious cow?
Ground turkey my friends. Yes. You heard me. Ground turkey picks up the beef flavor fantastically and is meat. So win-win all around. I made a remark on my twitter a couple of days ago as to how beef broth and the ground turkey seemed to work and someone from face book asked me for the recipe. I wrote this on the spot as a comment on facebook and copy-pasted at my live journal, so: forgive any typos and the re-post, but it got good reception so I thought I’d share it with all of you.
I like to sear my mushrooms. To do that, I add a pat of butter, turn the pan up to medium-high, and toss about 2 teaspoons of salt or a pinch of sea salt over them, then stir quickly to coat with butter and salt and then leave be until they are brown and crispy. Stir. Leave be until brown and crispy. Once cooked down I toss them into the Crock pot. If you are going to attempt to sear your mushrooms it’s best to do so when you know you can hover over your pan like your ex hovered over your shoulder really annoyingly whenever you tried to read to ensure your ‘shrooms don’t turn into cinders.
