My daughter will be a new Mum in 2012. She has asked me (or rather suggested) that I add my many 'family meals' to my blog, so that she can make them for her mate. So, I shall, over the course of the next few months add several 'family secret' meals, here on my blog. My own Mum taught me these meals. Some I have altered. Others I've created. Feel free to add your versions or questions in the comment section. As I do enjoy reading all comments left, and I shall answer all questions in a timely manner.
|In sauce pan bring to boil enough water to cook 3/4 package of egg nooodles (more is cooking whole bag).|
|In one cup measuring cup add 1/2 cup flour, salt & pepper (yes MORE in addition to the browned meat)|
|Slowly add COLD water to cup, stirring with fork till water/flour mixture reaches one cup mark.|
Should be similar to the consistency of pancake mix.
|Slowly add flour mixture to warming meat, make sure to STIR it constantly!|
|If mixture is too thick...|
|add small amounts of water GRADUALLY, so you don't thin it too much, making it runny.|
|continue stirring, |
You want a GRAVY like consistency.
This process may take a few minutes to achieve gravy status.
|once meat and gravy are at a good thickness....|
|Cover and simmer on LOW temp of five minutes. Turn off burner and allow to sit for another five minutes.|
|Serve over hot noodles. Add tomatoes or as my daughter like to, a wee bit of ketchup. Enjoy!|
