Ground Beef Stroganoff is one of mine and Nate’s favorite meals and part of our regular meal rotation. I said a while ago I was going to post this recipe and now I am!
I like this recipe because even though stroganoff typically has a lot of fat in it and processed carbs, it can be adjusted to the more healthy side of things with some easy substitutions. By using lean ground beef, low sodium beef broth, lower fat sour cream, whole wheat pasta or rice it can morph into a much healthier option that is still absolutely delicious comfort food!
Healthy Ground Beef Stroganoff
1/2 pound (lean) ground beef
Dale’s sauce or steak seasoning
1 Tablespoon onion flakes or 1/2 small diced onion
1 teaspoon garlic powder or 1 clove garlic
1/2 Tablespoon ketchup
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
3/4 cup beef broth
1 1/2 Tablespoon (wheat) flour
1/2 cup sour cream (light or fat free if you please)
3 cups cooked pasta, rice, or quinoa.
Brown beef with seasoning of choice. Drain and rinse beef in strainer. Add onion, garlic, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, and 1/2 cup beef broth. Bring to a boil and simmer approximately 10 minutes to allow flavors to blend. Place remaining beef broth and flour in sealed container, such as a small Tupperware, and shake well. Add this mixture slowly to the beef, stirring well after each addition. Let simmer and thicken. Add sour cream and stir until heated thoroughly. Top noodles with stroganoff and enjoy!
