Beef Stroganoff



Serving size

2 cups with 2 ounces noodles
90 Minutes

This recipe can easily be multiplied with a larger pot, and leftovers are great. Reheat gently so that the sour cream doesn’t break down.

Beef Stroganoff


3 Tbsp. Enriched all purpose white flour (or garbanzo flour)
1/2 tsp., ground Black pepper
16 ounces Beef top round (trim all fat & cube for stew)
4 tsp. Olive oil
1 large White onions (thinly sliced)
1 pound Mushrooms, white, raw (quartered)
2 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
2 Tbsp. Lemon juice
1/4 cup Reduced fat sour cream
1/4 cup 2% milk
4 tsp., leaves Dried basil
1/4 tsp. Salt
2 cup No salt added beef stock (or chicken or vegetable stock)
4 quart Water
8 ounce Whole Wheat Linguine (or gluten free linguine)


Preheat the oven to 350°F.

Place flour and pepper in a brown paper bag.

Add half of the beef cubes to the bag and coat the beef cubes by shaking in the paper bag.

Place 1 tsp. of the oil in a non-stick skillet and heat over medium heat.

Add half of the floured beef and brown on all sides.

Be careful not to let the meat touch each other or it will steam.

As beef is browned on all sides remove to a stock pot.

Repeat for the second batch of beef.

Add two teaspoons olive oil to the pan.

Add the onions and cook for about 10 minutes until they begin to brown. Stir frequently.

Add the mushrooms and cook for 8 minutes.  Stir frequently.

Add the mushrooms and onions to the stock pot with the beef.

Add the lemon juice, the Worcestershire and the stock to the pan and scrape up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan.

Add the liquid to the stew pot.

Stir in the sour cream, milk, dried basil, and salt until well blended.

Cover and place in the preheated oven.  Cook for one hour until the meat is tender.

When the stroganoff is about 15 minutes from being done place the 4 quarts water in a large pot and bring to a boil.

Add the appropriate amount of egg noodles (2 ounces per serving of pasta) and stir occasionally.

When the pasta is cooked drain and serve with the stroganoff.

Recipe Notes

Beef Stroganoff is a classic and is the ultimate comfort food. The umami forward flavor of the onions, beef, and whole wheat noodles is magnified by the Worcestershire sauce. The liberal amount of pepper combined with the basil really rounds out the recipe.

Heating reduced-fat ingredients like reduced-fat sour creams and yogurt takes care because they can break down. Heat recipes gently and you will end up with one that is rich and creamy but with fewer calories.
