My sour cream recipes


Cabbage and Meat Rissoles (Lazy Cabbage Roll Patties)

January 30th, 2016 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

EnjoyYourCooking already has recipe for Lazy Cabbage Rolls casserole, this recipe variation uses almost the same ingredients, but in form of cabbage and meat patties baked under tomato and sour cream sauce.

Again, they are much easier and faster to prepare comparing to traditional cabbage rolls (this is why they are called “lazy”), but taste is very similar.

These patties constitute complete meal, but some vegetables or salads can be served along as a side dish.

Cabbage with Mushrooms and Sour Cream

January 16th, 2016 in Main Dishes, No-meat, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

This dish offers great combination of tastes: cabbage, onions, mushrooms and sour cream braised together and seasoned with fresh dill.

Cabbage braised with mushrooms and sour cream can be served as a side or as no meat course on its own.

Time needed for cooking will vary depending on how soft you like cabbage to be, just check its readiness from time to time.

Cucumber and Dill Salad

May 23rd, 2015 in Salads, Side Dish Recipes by Julia Volhina

This is my recipe for so called Polish Cucumber salad: simple salad with cucumbers, fresh dill and marinated onions.

Marinating onions makes them less bitter and removes most of that onion breath smell therefore this salad is great for parties, cookouts and such.

I am using balsamic vinegar and sour cream as dressing here. If you like, you can replace vinegar with lemon juice, but I somehow like vinegar better.

Beef Liver with Sour Cream

March 28th, 2015 in Beef, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

Let’s bring liver back to the table: for as nutritious as it is, it doesn’t get nearly enough of the spotlight.

This easy recipe will help you to add all the goodness beef liver has into your diet.

I noticed that in US it is easier to find pre-sliced and cleaned liver, but in case you buy a whole piece, you will need to clean it, remove hard vessel parts and slice it up before continuing with the recipe.

Liver tastes great with boiled buckwheat, this is my first choice for a side dish for any main course with liver.

Rabbit Stew with Mushrooms and Sour Cream

February 14th, 2015 in Main Dishes, Rabbit by Julia Volhina

Rabbit meat is considered to be lean and overall healthy meat option. We were cooking rabbits pretty often at home in Ukraine. But here in US I was never lucky enough to see one in store.

This seem had changed recently: both, Whole Foods and Giant Eagle Market District in area where we live, now started carrying young rabbits (I hope it isn’t some kind of trial).

So I couldn’t resist, bought one and decided to share this simple and yet pretty tasty recipe for rabbit stew with mushrooms and sour cream. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Spaghetti Squash with Chicken and Mushrooms

November 8th, 2014 in Chicken, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

Fall is a perfect time to cook some squash. Spaghetti squash.

This recipe features spaghetti squash stewed with chicken and mushrooms in sour cream sauce. Prepared like this, this dish doesn’t require a side.

Stewed spaghetti squash will work great for dunner or lunch. Leftovers can be easily reheated in microwave.

Shrimps in Sour Cream Sauce

July 19th, 2014 in Appetizers & Snacks, Fish, Main Dishes by Julia Volhina

Fast recipe to fix shrimps: simmer them for few minutes in sour cream and butter sauce.

I used raw cleaned shrimps for the recipe. But boiled ones will work as well, just reduce cooking time and temperature (no need for boiling).

Shrimps prepared this way can be a dish on its own, an appetizer or a snack, or it can be served over a bed of rice or pasta.
