Ingredients for Lean Hamburger Stroganoff recipe

  • 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.

Directions to make Lean Hamburger Stroganoff recipe

Step 1

Add coconut oil to the skillet, adjust to medium heat.

Step 2

Add beef, onion, and garlic to a non-stick saucepan or skillet. Cook for 8-10 minutes, stirring constantly.

When beef is brown, drain fat. I drain into a colander with a bowl lined with paper towels. Wipe off the skillet and add the meat back to the skillet.

Stir in sour cream and yogurt. Cook until sufficiently warm for your liking.
