My Beef Stroganoff Recipe gets an E style makeover this week on Trim Healthy Tuesday!   Hope you enjoyed last weeks awesome collection of Trim Healthy Mama inspired posts…let’s start with my recipe for this week, and then we’ll look at the top favorites from last week and do the link up fun again!

Beef Stroganoff Recipe – E Style

As per usual, my family favorite recipes are fast, easy, and we think they’re really tasty.  This one gets frequent requests. And it’s an E dinner, which I know lots of you are wanting ideas for good E meals.  Give this one a try!

This is what you’ll need:

THM E recipes (1)

1 pound of ground beef, a few cloves of garlic, one onion, a mushroom soup cube, 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk (or other dairy free, low fat alternative), 0% Greek yogurt, and glucomannan and a tablespoon of butter (not pictured).  I like to serve this over brown rice, so that’s already in the cooker at this point.

Step one: Melt butter, and saute chopped up onion in a skillet until tender.  Toss in chopped garlic for just a minute or so, and then add your beef.  I like to brown my beef well…I like some dark brown crusty spots on the bottom.  It adds such a rich beefy flavor!

Make a hole in the middle of the ground beef, and pour your milk in,

Add your mushroom cube…

THM E recipes (4)

Measure out 1/2-1 tsp of gluccomannan, and get your whisk ready. Sprinkle a light layer of gluccie over the top of the milk as you whisk.  You should see it start pulling together into a rich, thick sauce.  I start with 1/2 t. and go from there.

Add your 0% Greek yogurt to the pan next.  Stir to blend it all in.  THM E recipes (3)

Add salt/pepper to taste and adjust seasonings to your liking.

Serve over brown rice with a side of steamed veggies or a side salad.

This is another fast family favorite that we would really eat every week. It's a filling and delicious E meal to fuel your metabolism. If you'd prefer to make it an S meal, then sub for real sour cream, and serve over Dreamfields pasta instead of rice.
Recipe type: Main Dish
Cuisine: THM E meal
Serves: 4-6
  • 1 T. butter
  • 1 small onion
  • 2 cloves minced garlic (the more the better, IMO...I think I usually throw in 4-5 cloves)
  • 1 lb. of ground beef
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • steak seasonings and parsley to taste
  • 1 cream of mushroom cube (from the cream of mushroom recipe here)
  • ½-1 teaspoon glucomannan powder
  • 1 cup of unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup unsweetened 0% Greek yogurt
  1. Add ground beef, and brown. Cook the beef until a toasty brown develops on the bottom of some of the meat, and it has a rich, roasted smell. Transfer meat to colander, and rinse with very hot water to remove fat. This step can be skipped if you are using a very lean grassfed beef or venison...if in doubt, just rinse.
  2. Chop up the onions and garlic. Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat. Cook onions in butter for a minute, and then add garlic and stir. Make a hole in the center of the skillet, and melt down a cream of mushroom soup cube.
  3. Pour your cup of almond milk over this, and gently sprinkle the gluccomannan into a thin layer over the liquid, whisking as you sprinkle. Stir until it comes together into a gravy.
  4. Stir in Sour Cream and seasonings to taste. Blend in well and cook until warmed through.
Serve immediately over ¾ cup of cooked brown rice (for an E meal) or cooked Dreamfields noodles, and add an E side dish (beets, cooked carrots) or an E dessert (peach Tummy Tucking Ice Cream!)

  5. This is fantastic. My family loved it! My husband said this goes into the ‘make again’ recipe book. My mom was still talking about it before dinner tonight! :)

  6. When you say “add sour cream” in the recipe, you mean yogurt subbing for sour cream, right? Will be trying this….have never subbed yogurt for sour cream but I’m sure it’s just as good.

    • Yes…thank you! The 0% Greek yogurt tastes almost *exactly* like Sour Cream to me. It’s really a fantastic sub.

      • Can you use sour cream instead? Are the calories and nut. Info just as good, or is yogurt more superior to use? Thanks!

        • Since I use this one with brown rice, I use a fat free Greek Yogurt, but you could also use ff sour cream. I believe Greek yogurt has more protein, but with the meat that wouldn’t really be critical. :)

      • Hi Cheryl, I’m sorry you’re confused. A Tablespoon of butter would not be a problem in a meal that has many servings…you’d just want around a teaspoon of fat max per serving to stay in E territory for your meal.
