::Creamy Dried Beef & Vegetables with Pierogies::

I usually come up with recipe ideas while i'm grocery shopping. The other day while in the frozen food section I come upon pierogies and started thinking "hmm, I bet these would be great in something." So this is where the recipe for ::Creamy Dried Beef & Vegetables with Pierogies:: starts. Most people I have met haven't heard of pierogies or haven't tried them. If you are one of those who hasn't, pierogies are a pasta filled with a potato filling. The ones I bought for this dish are "mini" ones and are potato & cheese blend pierogies. Growing up, my dad usually made these by boiling them and then frying them up a little. They are wonderful to say the least! I used some ingredients that I had already had at home and this dish didn't take long to make, not to mention very tastey! Enjoy!

::Creamy Dried Beef & Vegetables with Pierogies::
1 cup purple onion
1 cup peppers
1 can dried beef (rinse with water and squeeze out excess)
1 can corn
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup milk
garlic powder and onion powder (sprinkle 4 times across the pan)
garlic salt and onion salt (sprinkle 2 times across the pan)
olive oil

Saute onions and peppers with olive oil until tender. Add corn, crm. of mushroom soup, sour cream and milk. Rinse out dried beef and squeeze the excess water off. Cut beef into chunks and add to the mixture and heat through. Add frozen pierogies to the pan and cover for about ten minutes. Then stir, cover, and let sit again. And again until pierogies are heated through. Serve & enjoy....and remember who made up this recipe! :)

The ingredients!
Dried beef is usually found in the isle that has the tuna.

I used purple onions and a mix of red and green peppers; but use whatever you have or want.

Added the canned corn!

Roughly chopped dried beef.

Add the mushroom soup, sour cream, and milk...

Makes it creamy!

Next, add the dried beef and seasonings. Add a little salt and quite a bit of pepper. The dried beef is so salty the way it is, that is why I rinsed it off. So once the dish is done, you may have to add a little salt depending on how salty the dried beef made the dish.

Dump the frozen pierogies on top...

And cover, make sure the heat setting is on a low setting, so that you don't burn the creamed mixture.

Then mix and cover and do this until the pierogies are heated through.

And eat!
This dish is so yummy and creamy and has meat, potatoes, and veggies, with a great seasoned taste!
