Italy meets Russia in this take on a classic beef stroganoff. Juicy, bite-sized meatballs replace the traditional steak as the protein in this hybrid dish, and savory baby portobello mushrooms and tender egg noodles fill out this creamy, hearty meal. This dish really is perfect for the whole family. (What kid doesn't like meatballs?) The recipe below calls for ground beef, but that could also be substituted with ground pork, chicken or turkey. Whatever meat you choose, be sure to cook it thoroughly.
This recipe is particularly kid-friendly, and it's a great idea to include any helpers you may have at home to join in the kitchen and roll out the meatballs. After all, teamwork makes the dream work. There is no rule on how large or small the meatballs should be, but keep in mind that larger meatballs will need more time to cook. Leave your passport at home, and visit two countries at once with this flavorful dish!
