Tuesday, 26 January 2010

I'm a bit ashamed to do this, as it's Australia Day and hugely unpatriotic of me not to be having a big barbecue full of lamb steaks and sausages. But I don't, because this is the $40 Challenge, and that would be cheating! (Plus, sigh, we don't have a barbecue).

$3.25 -- Flat piece of beef
$1.83 -- Small carton of sour cream

Total amount for dinner tonight: $5.08
Total amount of weekly budget spent: $14.83

Serves 2

1/2 onion, chopped finely
Small piece of beef, sliced thinly into strips

2 large tablespoons of sour cream
1/4 cup beef stock
1 tablespoon of tomato paste
Dash of paprika
Flour for dusting
Egg noodles (cooked)

(1) Heat a small amount of oil with a touch of margarine or butter in a fry pan. Fry onion until clear.

(2) Dust the beef with a bit of flour until coated. Fry in the pan until cooked.

(3) Add beef stock and paprika, bring to the simmer.

(4) Add sour cream and tomato paste. Simmer gently for a few minutes and serve on the egg noodles.
