A healthy and delicious beef stroganoff- comfort food at it’s best!
Beef stroganoff used to be a real staple in my kitchen years ago, but I had forgotten all about it. I had some sour cream left over from another recipe recently, so decided to have a go at a lean version of it (I used to use a whole tub of sour cream!). I used to mainly flavour it with paprika, but in this version I tried a couple of slightly different additions, and I think it’s the nicest one I’ve ever made!
Just a little tip for adding in the sour cream at the end, if you gently warm it through before adding it, it prevents it from separating and making a grainy sauce. I have a little tiny saucepan which is perfect for this, or alternatively you could carefully warm it in the microwave.

- 500 g thin frying steak sliced into strips
- 1 onion sliced into half moons
- 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
- 200 g button mushrooms sliced
- 2 tsp wholegrain mustard

- 1/2 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
- 500 ml beef stock
- 1 tbsp cornflour
- 3 tbsp low fat sour cream

- low calorie cooking spray/spray oil
- parsley to garnish
- In a large, deep frying pan, fry the onions gently in low calorie cooking spray (or spray oil) until soft- about 4 minutes

- Add in the mushrooms, pour in the remaining stock and season with salt and pepper. Allow to simmer gently, uncovered for 25 minutes.
- At the end of the cooking time, gently warm your sour cream, either in a small pan, or in the microwave, and then add it to the beef mixture (this will prevent it from separating)
- Serve with chopped, fresh parsley sprinkled over the top.
