What to Serve with Beef Stroganoff
Because there is pasta in this dish I like to keep the sides bright colors and on the lighter side. Sometimes we make baked potatoes or mashed potatoes but normally it is a green something. You can make the sides as easy as you want to, a bag of steamer veggies like green beans or broccoli are easy to make sides. You can also make a fresh salad. My kids like it when I make them a bread or a roll to dip in any extra sauce that is on their plates too.

Variations of this recipe
Change up the meat. I like using ground beef and ground chicken as my meats to use when making the meatballs but you can also use ground pork, ground turkey, ground chicken or whatever combination you want to instead. I like using a high quality ground beef like ground sirloin as I think the ground sirloin and the ground chicken together make the best flavor.
Change up the spice. If you want more of a spicy kick in your meatballs then you can add more red pepper flakes, if you do not want any spice then you can skip them.
