Cumbrae’s Beef Stroganoff for Dinner

I wanted something super easy to make and tasty. Cumbrae’s usually deliver on both with their packaged meals (spoiler: not so much this time).

Today the choice was Beef Stroganoff. It’s starting to get cooler, and what could be more comforting than beef, noodles and sour cream?

What you pickup in the store

Unfortunately, it’s expensive as heck and only just fills up two people. You can really only justify the price if you compare it to ordering out on UberEats, but you can’t justify it compared to actually cooking a meal.

After squeezing it out

It’s also not terribly appetizing to look at once you’ve squeezed it out of its plastic home.

Mix it up and it isn’t looking so bad.

There’s no instructions besides to warm it up gently. I left it on the lowest heat for about 20 minutes while watching a youtube video.

Served it up in a bowl

There was enough to fill up two bowls with Beef Stroganoff, and it was eaten up quickly with room for an ice cream bar afterwards.

There’s been meals I’ve enjoyed much more from Cumbrae’s, and while this one didn’t taste bad, it didn’t knock my socks off either. The beef was tender, but the flavour didn’t do it for me. Consider trying it yourself next time you want a quick meal and want an alternative to delivery food.
