Low Fat Beef Stroganoff

Low Fat Beef Stroganoff

Fiona Haynes
Thin strips of a lean cut of beef and plain yogurt instead of sour cream go a long way to cut fat and calories in this healthier, low fat beef stroganoff.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes


  • 3/4 pound top round steak, trimmed of fat
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 8 ounces sliced cremini mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped shallots
  • 1 1/4 cups fat-free, low-sodium beef broth
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch dissolved in 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup low-fat plain yogurt (with 1/2 tsp cornstarch stirred in to stabilize for heat)
  • 4 servings cooked wide noodles (about 8 ounces uncooked)


Slice beef into very thin slices, then cut into pieces.

Heat oil in skillet on medium heat. Add beef and cook for 2 minutes. Remove from pan.

Add shallots and mushrooms to the skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes, until softened.

Pour broth into pan with mustard. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer.

Add cornstarch and stir as the sauce thickens.

Return beef to pan and cook for 3 minutes.

Remove from heat. Gently stir in in yogurt, then serve immediately over hot noodles.

Low fat? No way!!!, Member kris10cap

As a big beef stroganoff fan I was skeptical about this recipe. I have tried a few versions of ""low fat"" stroganoff before and was very disappointed. This recipe was AMAZING!! Super light but full of flavor and very creamy texture. The only thing I added was some steamed carrots because my daughter loves them. I just tossed them in at the end.
