Serve a lightened version of the classic dish with a tossed green salad and sautéed red and green bell pepper strips for a satisfying family-friendly meal.
8 ounces uncooked medium egg noodles
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 pound ground beef, extra lean
1 cup prechopped onion
1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1 (8-ounce) package presliced cremini mushrooms
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup fat-free, less-sodium beef broth
1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup reduced-fat sour cream
1 tablespoon dry sherry
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
How to Make It
Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain and rinse under cold water; drain.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add beef to pan; cook 4 minutes or until browned, stirring to crumble. Add onion, garlic, and mushrooms to pan; cook 4 minutes or until most of liquid evaporates, stirring frequently. Sprinkle with flour; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 1 minute or until slightly thick. Stir in salt and pepper.
Remove from heat. Stir in sour cream and sherry. Serve over pasta. Sprinkle with parsley.
the reviews regarding bland flavor, I added roasted garlic, sauteed the onions and mushrooms in garlic and olive oil. Added some fresh crushed thyme, juniper berries and sage. The family loved it and it was NOT bland! this recipe did state it is a healthier version of hamburger stroganoff..not the recipe with cream of mushroom soup, cream of chicken soup, sour cream and season salt....OMG the sodium, artificial ingredients, MSG and fat are enough to call it "heart attack on a plate"! Yeah, i was brought up with that kind of food, however, I have changed the way i cook and have taught my children the same. Now, as young adults, they can't stand the taste of the artificial ingredients and all of the sodium...and neither can THEIR children.
Didn't find this bland, unlike other reviewers. We all love stroganoff and I love finding a recipe that uses hamburger, since it shaves time off the prep by being able to throw the meat in the skillet right away, instead of having to slice steak. It came together quickly, had no problems with the recipe, and all proclaimed it tasty. Great option for a quick and hearty dinner.
Hard to make a "lite" Stroganoff sauce but I've had better. Hard to get flour fully cooked and integrated. Sauce looks grainy. Taste is off, not quite the right "tang". I will go back to my old Weight Watchers recipe.
