Lean Hamburger Stroganoff

Lean Hamburger Stroganoff is a comfort food made healthy lunch option.  Adapted from my mother’s cookbook (Thanks, Mom!  Love you), I’ve cut out a lot of the fat and sodium from the original version and replaced it with healthy options that keep the dish just as hearty and filling.

Ingredients for Lean Hamburger Stroganoff

  • 1 Tbsp Coconut oil
  • 1 lb lean ground beef (93% lean)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (roughly 1/2 cup)
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 4 oz. (1 cup) of sliced mushrooms.
  • 1 1/3 cups beef stock
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/3 cup greek yogurt
  • 1/3 cup lite sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp corn starch

Directions for Lean Hamburger Stroganoff

  1. Add coconut oil to the skillet, adjust to medium heat.
  2. Add beef, onion, and galric to non-stick saucepan or skillet.  Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring constantly.
  3. When beef is brown, drain fat.  I drain into a colander with a bowl lined with paper towels.  Wipe off skillet and add meat back to skillet.
  4. Stir in beef stock and salt.  Simmer uncovered for 10 minutes.
  5. Stir in sour cream and yogurt.  Cook until sufficiently warm for your liking.


  1. Serve over rice or cooked noodles of your choosing.

  1. This looks delicious! Stroganoff is one of our family favorites! Love that you have come up with a lean version for us to try.

  2. Mmmmmm haven’t had beef stroganoff in a long time! Thanks for sharing with us at Funtastic Friday!

  3. I am excited to try this! Stroganoff has always been my fave. At what point do you add the mushrooms? It’s missing from the steps. Do you add it with the onion and garlic?
