Beef Stroganoff (Low fat)

There are as many versions of beef stroganoff as there is chili soup. You can mix the noodles with the sauce or just pour it on top. If times are tight and you know your kids will pour on the sauce, you can go ahead and mix it together. 🙂

This recipe calls for Greek yogurt, but you can use sour cream if you’re not interested in a low-fat dish. OR you can mix and match Greek yogurt with sour cream; make it half and half or just add a tablespoon of sour cream to the yogurt. I like this recipe because it can be done in under thirty minutes if you have canned beef, fried hamburger, or left-over roast in your refrigerator. I also like it because my hubby doesn’t notice the yogurt in lieu of sour cream. Win-win, right?!

Cook your noodles in water according to the directions. While the noodles are cooking,  saute onions and then add beef, cream of mushroom soup, mushrooms, and milk. Simmer until heated through. Just before serving, add the sour cream OR yogurt and heat through. That’s it, folks. I like to serve green beans and sugar-free applesauce with this dish; it makes a complete, balanced meal. A side salad goes well also.

  1. You don’t mention where the sautéed onions go or what point of the mixture. I just added them in with the rest of the ingredients as I assume that’s what you were thinking when you wrote this recipe. Thanks

  2. I went in to make the correction, and it does say “sauté onions and then add beef, cream of mushroom soup, mushrooms, and milk. . . . 🙂

    I made the beef stroganoff today following your recipe using sour cream in place of yogurt. My family loved it and requested I make it often.

  4. I’ve never made this before but it was so easy to make and tasted great. My daughter suggested we put in cooking sherry next time. We made it with beef stew meat that I cooked at low heat for several hours.

  5. Glad you enjoyed it and that you found it easy to make. “Easy” is what I go for these days. 🙂

  6. I haven’t made it yet but I have some Kettle Beef left over. I will add the sour cream to the kettle beef(which has cream of mushroom soup in it), then serve over noodles. It’s going to be great.

    I cooked the meat and onion together, added minced garlic, parsley and Worcester sauce to taste….then added the mushroom soup milk and sour cream.
    Easy and tasty, I’ll make this again!
