Ground Beef Stroganoff Recipe

We just had a cold and snowy weekend and although I prefer warmer weather, I do like the snow on weekends when I don’t have to drive to work. The best thing about winter weather is the comfort food and rich dishes that we get to cook. This delicious and hearty ground beef stroganoff recipe is always a big hit. My recipe is a variation of the traditional stroganoff recipe but it contains all the basic ingredients like beef, mushrooms and onions.

What makes beef stroganoff stand out is the addition of sour cream compared to other meat sauces. As you know here at Spoons and Stilettos we like things a little healthier so I did substitute the sour cream with a low-fat yogurt. If you like it creamier definitely go for the sour cream or heavy cream. Either way it will taste good. Another way to lighten up this meal would be to use zoodles instead of pasta. Check out my post on how to make delicious zoodles.

Contrary to popular believe eating beef is beneficial to your health. Here are some points to remind you that red meat is totally ok in moderation of course.

4 Benefits of eating red meat

  1. Great source of protein: Protein is a component of every cell and therefore a very important nutrient. It is also used to repair and build tissues and is needed to make enzymes, hormones and other body chemicals.
  2. It is a good source of iron: Red meat probably has the highest concentration of iron than any other meat. Iron plays an important role in the production of haemoglobin and red blood cells.
  3. Good source of Zinc: Zinc helps with the function of many body systems including the digestive system, immune system, metabolism and also helps reduce stress levels.
  4. Contains Vitamin B12 and B6: These are essential for the development, absorption of protein and will help with keeping your nerves and red blood cells healthy.

So there you have it! You can grab yourself that package of ground beef guilt free and make yourself a nice bowl of ground beef stroganoff . Your taste buds and your body will thank you.

  1. I really like the fact that you used ground beef in your recipe for a nice twist to the traditional Beef Stroganoff. I typically use a nice cubed chuck or stew beef; usually whatever is on sale, so I am interested in trying your recipe plus I love the fact that you have a healthier option to serve it over a bed of Zoodles.

  2. I can become quite anaemic so I am always trying to eat red meat throughout the week. I haven’t had stroganoff in ages though! I will have to try out your recipe 🙂

  3. SO many benefits of red meat as long as it is grass-fed. Corn feed beef is too high in Omega Six’s and Nine’s and typically is paired with other nonhealthy animal raising practices like antibiotics etc. Your dish looks delicious by the way.
