Beef Stroganoff and Garlic Mashed Potatoes

This is a delicious recipe that adds a new flair to an old standard.  Hope you like it :)

Beef Stroganoff
1 package Stew Meat
3 oz butter
8 oz egg noodles
2 tsp Alpine Touch
2 tsp Mediterranean Oregano
2  Mediterranean Basil
1 Zucchini (peeled & diced)
1 Summer Squash (peeled & diced)
8 oz package Cream Cheese
2 tsp Orange Emulsion
1 Cup Sour Cream
1/8 Cup Orange Juice 
1/2 Cup Cream
1 tsp Parsley

Melt 2 oz of butter in heavy bottom skillet.  Add stew meat, seasoning,and brown the meat, this should take about 6-8 minutes total.  While stew meat is being browned boil water in a separate pan for the noodles.  Add noodles and boil until al dente.  Drain and set aside the noodles once complete.  Once browned remove the steak from the pan (I store in the microwave to keep warm).  Don’t clean out the pan to ensure maximum flavor.  Add the final 1 oz of butter to the pan and add the diced veggies.  Cook until softened about 2-3 minutes.  Once softened add the cream cheese and the orange emulsion, simmer for about 5 minutes.  Add the remaining ingredients and simmer for about minute or two to mix.  Add the steak back into the sauce and stir until thoroughly mixed and warmed.  Serve by pouring sauce over the noodles when ready to eat.  Enjoy!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes 
3 Large Russet Potatoes (Peeled and chopped)
1 Cup Cream
2 Oz Butter (unsalted)
Seasoning (Basil, Alpine Touch)
2 Cloves Garlic (minced)
2 Radishes (Minced)
3/5 Cup Shredded Cheese 
Put into the potatoes into a pan and almost cover with water.  Boil until potatoes begin to soften (you should be able to mash them easily with a cooking spoon).  Empty any excess water.  Turn the heat to Low.  Add the milk and butter.  If you do not want lumps in your potatoes now would be the best time to use the whisk to eliminate any lumps in the potatoes.  Add the remaining ingredients mix and turn to Simmer until the cheese is thoroughly melted.  The potatoes should now be ready to eat.  You can add a dash of Basil on top when served to taste.
