Recipes Content


I am going to be honest. I had my doubts about this dish. Until this recipe, I had never had beef stroganoff before and most of the recipes for it involved lots of condensed soups and packets. Not really my cup of tea. However after numerous requests for a lightened up version, I started to do some more research and found out that beef stroganoff is just a simple beef dish with sour cream and mushrooms. That I could get behind. This lightened up version uses a leaner cut of beef slow cooked with mushrooms, reduced fat sour cream, and a touch of cream cheese to really make it creamy. You can serve it traditionally with egg noodles and I also found it pairs great with spaghetti squash. Also not to worry, I had a friend who loves beef stroganoff try the end result and she loved it. (I wouldn’t be the best judge since this was my first, although not last, experience with the dish.)
