Note: This high-calorie recipe is especially for kids with cystic fibrosis (CF), who need to consume additional calories to meet their nutritional needs.

This meal is easy to make. Add extra sour cream for even more calories.

Prep time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2-2/3 c. water
  • 2 tbsp. flour
  • 8 oz. beef tips
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 1 c. mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 package ramen noodles, beef flavor
  • 1/3 c. sour cream

Directions:

  1. Mix 1/3 cup water and flour and set aside.
  2. Cook meat and mushrooms in a small saucepan with 1 tbsp. butter until meat is no longer pink.
  3. Add 1/3 cup water and beef seasoning packet (from the ramen noodles) to the saucepan and simmer for 2 minutes.
  4. In a separate saucepan, cook noodles according to package directions. Drain noodles well. Add 2 tbsp. butter to noodles and set aside.
  5. Pour flour-water mixture into saucepan with beef mixture. Be aware that this will thicken very quickly.
