Winter Cyclone vs. Beef Stroganoff

by in View All Posts, February 5th, 2009

There is a wind tunnel right outside the Food Network offices. In the dead of winter, the dedicated employees here fight a raging vortex of frigid winds just to cross 9th Avenue to make it to work. It’s especially fun when it’s 16 degrees out, as it was this morning. 16F.

What can a dedicated FN staffer do to beat the punishing cold?

Eat some hearty, delicious, warming food. Last night, I put together what I consider the perfect dinner for a cold winter night – Beef Stroganoff. Quick and simple, I even made a few adjustments to lower the guilt factor without sacrificing flavor and richness. It was so tasty, I took a picture. Comfort food meets Healthy Eats. It gave me all the energy I needed on my morning commute, and battle with the arctic cyclone.

How are you staving off the cold where you live?

    Loads of comfort foods are keeping us warm in Upstate NY this week. We’ve had Bobby Flay’s meatloaf (featured in the latest issue of FN Magazine), Rick Massa’s tomato soup from URS (with extra bacon), and tonight open faced turkey sandwiches with more gravy than I care to admit! Fay, the photo of your delicious beef stroganoff is already warming me up and making me very hungry!

    How are we staving off the cold where we live? Well, I live in Idaho. So we eat potatoes. We cook ‘em, eat ‘em, put ‘em in our coal stoves and burn ‘em as fuel. We’d use ‘em for attic insulation if we could. (ok, I’m kidding)

    This week it was reasonably sunny, but there’s snow in the forecast, so it’s soup soup soup this weekend. Potato Leek, I think. Or perhaps Alton’s Leek Potato. Not sure yet – but it’s bound to have both leeks and potatoes in it, with plenty of ground pepper. Something about fresh cracked black pepper staves away the chills and girds the loins against the dreaded winter vortexes. (vortices?) whatever.

    Oh. And served with potato vodka, just to be on the safe side. If that won’t do it, nothin’ will.
