Skinny Beef Stroganoff

Skinny Beef Stroganoff

Classic beef stroganoff is a Russian dish made with sautéed beef and a sauce made from sour cream.

The traditional American version also has onions and mushrooms sautéed in butter and is served over a bed of egg noodles.

It’s a hearty meal that’s especially comforting during colder months, but it’s very rich.

Our Skinny Beef Stroganoff has the same savory flavor but significantly reduces the fat and calories.

To make this Skinny Beef Stroganoff a dinner you’ll want to make again and again, we started with extra lean sirloin beef, and add plenty of it.

With so much hearty beef, we were able to reduce the amount of noodles and upgrade them to whole-wheat egg noodles, while managing to make the dish more satisfying.

To replicate the creamy sauce, we combined beef stock with reduced-fat Greek yogurt.

The yogurt adds the similar tang of sour cream, without the fat. A sprinkling of fresh parsley adds a welcome pop of color, fresh fragrance, and elevates the dish.
