Cooking with Liz: You Name It!

I threw together ingredients for dinner Sunday night and it ended up tasting pretty darn good. I plan to make it again but want a good name for it... Ingredients (I never/rarely measure anything)
  • Ground beef
  • minced garlic (from the jar in the produce section)
  • chopped onion (I cheat and buy the frozen kind- Jeff got me hooked)
  • egg noodles
  • frozen green beans
  • a can of Red Gold petite diced tomatoes mexican fiesta
  • a can of condensed tomato soup (campbell's)
  • sour cream
  • seasoned with: smidgens of chili powder, cumin, garlic & bell pepper, Tastefully Simple's "Si Si Cilantro" dip mix (very little smidgen of this)
I browned the meat with garlic and onion. Drain, rinse. While meat was browning, I cooked the egg noodles (I use the ones in the brown bag, those healthier ones- no clue what the brand is, though). When the noodles were about halfway done, I tossed some frozen green beans into the boiling water. Put the meat back into my huge skillet. Added the tomatoes, the soup, and some sour cream. Added the noodles and green beans. Added the seasonings. Let it simmer a bit. I added shredded cheese, sour cream, and fresh ground pepper to my bowl of it.

So what should we name this dish??

We have different variations of this dish - kinda just take a bunch of stuff you think is gonna taste good together and throw it all in a dish and cook it. We call it JIBLAT - I think it's a Ukranian term - and I'm sure I've spelled it wrong. Means a mish mash of stuff that tastes like a gourmet meal I'm sure LOL

my mom always made something similar. she also added corn. We called it goulash. NOT goulash, but that's what we called it.
