Over the weekend, I saw a recipe by Dan at The Food in my Beard that caught my attention: beef StrogaNog. Yes, you read this right. The recipe is similar to a regular beef Stroganoff but with a holiday twist: use eggnog instead of cream! I bought all the ingredients over the weekend and today was the day. I was so ridiculously giddy about trying this out. I knew it would either be a great success or a gross failure. Thankfully, it turned out really good!
Check out Dan’s recipe right here.
As you can see on the picture above, the list of ingredients was super short! The only mistake I made though was to buy stew beef instead of something more tender. It was a little too chewy but still very tasty!
The result was super yummy. I couldn’t have enough of the creamy eggnog goodness on my egg noodles! Making this really got me wanting to make more holiday-inspired meals that aren’t the traditional stuff we’ll eat on Christmas. So I need to come up with more ideas in the next few weeks to add holiday twists to my regular meals. This should be fun! 🙂
