World’s Best Stroganoff recipe to the rescue post shoulder surgery. Simple, savory and gluten free! (Gluten-Free)
Oh, and I probably should mention I’ve demolished 4 bags of pistachios. That’s right 4 bags of heaven. Man oh man looking at these photos now, I think I need to make myself a batch of this goodness.
That is seriously one of the best things of this recipe, there are a couple simple ingredients and BAM perfect delicious goodness. It’s actually one of my favorite childhood recipes of all time.
My mom use to make a variation of this recipe when I was a kid, but she would use beef tips instead.
As a child I would eat around the meat and just enjoy the delicious sauce on rice. Now I’m a big girl and I choose what kind of meat goes in it. My big girl executive decision decided I’m doing ground chicken.
Which easily can be changed to ground turkey or ground beef and yes of course you can use beef tips if that tickles your fancy. It’s the sauce that really makes this a winner.
Take these few simple ingredients, top the beautiful sauce on a bed of rice and you have heaven in your mouth. You might be taken back a bit with my white rice but there is a method to my madness.
Chris Kresser from The Healthy Skeptic Podcast who I have extreme respect for. He always does an immense amount of research on a topic. He makes a very valid point that brown rice though you would think is a healthier option and that’s what we have been taught over the years. Brown rice in fact has bran in it, and bran has anti-nutrients along with toxins in it. Whereas white rice has had the bran removed leaving you with a starch.
As always this is based on if your body can handle it. We are all different. It’s something that I think is totally OK on a seldom basis.
Today actually marks the one week mark of my shoulder surgery. It’s a great feeling, I’m becoming more and more independent as each day passes. First couple days I couldn’t do anything at all. By day five I was home by myself, biking on my new recumbent bike for 15-20 minutes. It’s a good feeling to have each day that passes get better and better.
