Brisket and Pulled Pork Stroganoff

FULL DISCLOSURE: I wrote this post last night (Sunday) under extreme exhaustion (read below) and thought I had set it to publish this am.  Apparently, I had the marshmallow and brownie sweats and scheduled this post to publish on Tuesday instead of Monday.  I hope that this disclosure puts this everything into context and that I can get myself a pass on this transgression – additionally I hope I can learn how to read a calendar and get some sleep.  I’m glad we had this little talk.




Happy Monday!  How was your weekend?  Mine was a very welcome reprieve because last week for me was a total buzzkill!

But last weekend was a blast because we had Lisa’s annual Birthday Meat Fest.  We smoked a brisket and and a pork butt and had a ton of leftovers, so when I found out at the last minute that we were having a couple of guests for dinner I decided to use it in a stroganoff.  It was delicious.




That’s Zoe. One of our dinner guests. She is one of the coolest people I have ever met and quite the old soul.




That’s Harmony.  Zoe’s sister.  She did her own makeup.  She also loves marshmallows, brownies, strawberries and cherries.  She’s 4.  And one hot mess.




They loved stroganoff for dinner and made me bake all night long.  I’m exhausted.  I forget how much work a 4 year old is.  Jeesh.




We did this.  I admit it. Candy canes, marshmallows, and strawberries.  Chocolate.  Can’t forget about that.  We were a hot mess.  We also made brownies.  I would like to sleep for the next 246 days, but oh yeah, I have to work.  Womp womp!




It was a blast and I totally welcomed the fun.  It was almost like being a kid again.




This is the face I’ll be making in the morning.




And I’ll totally be having some marshmallow violence drama.

  1. Okay.. smoked brisket AND pulled pork meets and marries stroganoff?! You are forgiven for your marshmallow high! Craaaaazy yummies going on with this comforting pasta! Total swoon fest is happening up in my belleh! AND I am totally making that sad face pictured above because I had popcorn for dinner instead of THIS deliciousness. Now THAT is a womp womp!! Ugh. Send me some of this carnivorous-nom-tastic stroganoff! Then get yourself some sleep! <3 xoxo Cheers!

    • Dude. You need to get over here for some meat festing and beer brewing. You will never make that sad face again. Unless you keep eating popcorn for dinner or choose blue eyeshadow. 🙂 xoxo Cheers!

  2. Smoked brisket and pulled pork sound delicious! Love that stroganoff. Sounds like you guys had fun last weekend! Hope you gat some rest! I’ve had similar stuff happen with scheduled posts 🙂

  3. Beef stroganoff is one of my favorite meals! I hardly ever make it because my husband isn’t a huge fan of it, but I have a feeling he would love this pulled pork version! It looks so comforting, Rachelle! Love it!

  4. Yep, that’s how I feel 24/7. I live with my little rugrats, and they have completely taken any energy I had to begin with and completely obliterated it. Those are some dang cute kids, though! It’s nice you can borrow them and return them. That’s my favorite thing to do!
    That marshmallow thing looks pretty dope, by the way. You gonna post that?
    And I am in a lifelong love affair with stroganoff. It just reminds me of being a kid and slurping delicious meaty noodles. Yours looks so good!

    • OMG! We are empty nesters and happy to be that way. It’s nice to have little visitors though. These girls are super fun and sweet and we totally get to return them on their sugar highs! 🙂
      I had intended to post the marshmallow thing, but I let the girls get crazy with the chocolate we didn’t love it. It you can believe there is such a thing as too much chocolate, that’s what happened. It also got dark, so the pics didn’t turn out. I sent the remainder with them to get it out of my house! I may try it again, but for the moment we are out of marshmallows.

  5. Step away from the marshmallows. They did nothing wrong. Haha! These photos are awesome. And the makeup? Clutch! Speaking of clutch, what an awesome way to use brisket and pulled pork. We have both in our freezer right now, so I think this combo needs to happen. And soon. With marshmallows. And makeup. 🙂

  6. What super fun dinner guests you had! Harmony looks like she could have her own reality TV show. Let’s find that kid an agent! (Maybe Zoe could do it?)

    My mom made beef stroganoff all the time. Your version looks amazing!!!

  7. OMG I wish I was invited to that birthday party, since it sounds like it was so much fun, and the girls are super cute! Now back to that stroganoff, like are you kidding me, its the most amazing stroganoff I have ever seen, all the smoked meat makes my mouth water!

  8. How sweet are those kids?! Looks like your day was full of the best kinda stuff… Adorable children – check. Brisket – check. Stroganoff – check. Toasty marshmallows – check. Success!

  9. Holy fricken mother of all things AMAZING!!! Your Stroganoff sounds wonderful and just what I want now. Your version of this classic seems waaaaaaay better. Can’t wait to try it. YARM!

  10. Hahaha, I know do you mean by Harmony’s own makeup! My 3-year old does the same saying, “I want to look like mommy”! 😉 These kids are so much fun! Loved this wonderful post and everything you guys made! This strogranoff looks awesome!

  11. THOSE NOODLES remind me of when I was younger – egg noodles, with pork chops and apple sauce. AW MAN – the hunger going on in my stomach is INTENSE YO!
