Do you know the best part of summer when you live on the water? Well, besides the beach. For me it’s the fresh seafood. I have such wonderful memories of going crabbing with my family in the summer. It’s so easy and a great bonding experience. I think crabbing is more rewarding than fishing, but then again I don’t care for fish.

30 minutes for a complete meal – start to finish – may seem like a pipe dream to some of you. Let me assure you it’s possible and yummy!

This Easy Beef Stroganoff will easily feed a family of 6 leaving more for tomorrows lunch or dinner. The key to making it taste amazing is in the seasoning.

So here’s my recipe for an Easy Beef Stroganoff that is ready in under 30 minutes. No thanks necessary 🙂
