This one is a real winner. Its from cooking light. It’s a slow cooker recipe. And it screams comfort. Beef Stroganoff. Creamy mushroom sauce with beef over egg noodles. I mean, creamy anything is comfort but after being congested for days on end and worrying about your waste-line, cream is the last thing you want.

Cooking light does a great job creating a delightfully creamy recipe that is not chock full of cream. I made some last minute adjustments to this recipe based on what was available and it did not disappoint. Fair warning, I should have had leftovers of this dish but after two nights in a row of “meh” slow cooker recipes (not yet posted), we dove into this HARD. Only one of us got to take leftovers to work. (sad face).

Ingredients

1 (1-pound) top round steak (1 inch thick), trimmed
1 Medium onion, chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (Or, 1 Tablespoon dried parsley)
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried dill
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 (8-ounce) package sliced mushrooms (about 2 cups)(I doubled the amount of mushrooms)
3 garlic cloves, minced
1.5 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1/3 cup)
1 cup fat-free, lower-sodium beef broth
1 (8-ounce) container low-fat sour cream non fat, plain greek yogurt

Method:

1. Cut steak diagonally across grain into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place steak and next 8 ingredients (though garlic) in a 3-quart electric slow cooker; stir well.
2. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Place flour in a small bowl; gradually add broth, stirring with a whisk until blended. Add broth mixture to slow cooker; stir well. Cover with lid; cook on high-heat setting 1 hour. Reduce to low-heat setting, and cook 7 to 8 hours or until steak is tender. Turn slow cooker off; remove lid. Let stroganoff stand 10 minutes. Stir in sour cream. Serve stroganoff over noodles.

Creamy.

Hearty.

Delicious.

EASY!

HEALTHY!

We sat on the couch with bowls of this stuff and ate. Heads down. No talking. Just enchanted with how good this was. And we didn’t think twice before going back for seconds. We deserved it. We earned it.

This is definitely a winner and I would definitely make it again. I have already been asked to double this recipe to share with mom. Mom used to make beef stroganoff for me as a child, and not the healthy way.

Go make this. And wear stretchy pants!
