One Pan Ground Meat Stroganoff is a healthier alternative to boxed noodle and sauces mixes containing preservatives and artificial colors and flavors that are added to ground beef. Yes, boxed meals are convenient. You simply add ground beef, water, and milk. But, with a few simple substitutions, you can reduce prep time and still have a healthier meal providing 6 servings instead of 5.
Unlike boxed one pan meals or frozen meals, it is easy to make this recipe your own or make slight variations.
- 1 or 2 (4 oz.) cans sliced mushrooms, drained, instead of fresh mushrooms
- 2 to 3 tablespoons chopped dried onion for fresh onion
- 93% lean ground turkey can be substituted for beef. Subtract 40 calories per serving. You can also use any ground meat for this recipe. Drain excess fat if you use less lean ground meats.
- When using parmesan cheese other than Parmigiano-Reggiano, you may have to increase the amount from 1/2 cup to 2/3 or 3/4 cup. Start with 1/2 cup and increase to taste.
- 6 oz. (170 g) sour cream for yogurt.
- 14.5 oz. canned reduced or low sodium beef broth.
- Whole wheat noodles or other dry pasta for white noodles.
- White wine for red wine
- Cut calories and saturated fat by substituting 12 ounces of 93% lean ground turkey or chicken for 16 ounces of ground beef.
- If liquid is adsorbed before noodles are tender, stir in about 1/4 cup of water or broth.
Time Saving Tip
Mix together all dry seasoning ingredients except parmesan cheese and store in plastic bags for future use.
