Stroganoff Beef Cups

Dinner time, after a busy day, nothing works better than a quick recipe. The beef cups take only a few minutes, and you can bake them while kids take a shower!

Elise has a great Beef Stroganoff recipe on her Simply Recipes site. It is such a popular recipe with kids, and I serve over rice and chips. If you do not want to make the Beef Stroganoff, try the substitute I mentioned below.

Stroganoff Beef Cups

12 slices of bread (you can use wholewheat bread)
3 tablespoons softened butter
Beef stroganoff leftovers
¾ cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Butter one side of each slice of bread and press each one butter-side down into the cups of a muffin tin. Fill each bread cup with the stroganoff or the cooked ground beef mixture below. Sprinkle shredded Cheddar cheese over the tops. Bake for 15 minutes.

Substitute stroganoff: cook 1 pound ground beef, 1 small onion. Add one can condensed cream of mushroom soup (or heavy cream), salt and pepper to taste, combine and fill the bread cups, sprinkle cheese on top, and bake 15 minutes. Serve with potato chips on top.

That is a very good idea for the next party !!! Thank you for translating. I have here one recipe to translate it for you, but by my bad english I have to read the dictionnary for every word.

Luna, yes indeed, this will be great for a party! And if you go to Babelfish you can translate your texts, but be careful, it is a poor translation.
