I wasn’t quite sure what to call this recipe. Healthy Stroganoff? Yes. Hamburger Stroganoff? Check. Turkey Stroganoff? Ground beef or turkey works, so sure. Stroganoff from Scratch? Checkerooni. Let’s just call it Healthy Ground Turkey or Beef Stroganoff from Scratch. Rolls off the tongue, doesn’t it?

Really, it doesn’t matter what you call it as long as you serve it up for dinner! Your family will love this meaty, creamy stroganoff served over egg noodles, and you will love that it’s ready in under 30 minutes.

This recipe uses olive oil and Greek yogurt, making it healthier than the classic version with heavy cream, butter, or canned soups. Add some sliced tomatoes or a simple salad on the side, and you’ve got a perfect weeknight dinner. I hope you will come back to this hamburger stroganoff recipe any time you need a healthy, quick meal to please your whole family!

It’s easy to make a healthy stroganoff dinner from scratch with no canned soups!

  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 1x

Ingredients

Scale

 

Instructions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook noodles according to package directions, drain and set aside. If noodles are done more than a few minutes before your stroganoff is ready, you can toss them with 2 tsp. olive oil to prevent them from sticking together.
  2. Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a 12″ skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground meat, and brown and crumble. About halfway through cooking the meat, stir in soy sauce, worcestershire sauce, and oregano, and mushrooms. Continue cooking until meat is cooked through.
  3. Sprinkle flour over the meat mixture, and stir until meat and mushroom are well coated. Slowly stir in chicken broth and then milk, stirring constantly, until smooth. Reduce heat to medium, and bring to a simmer. Stir in yogurt, and return to a simmer. If sauce is thicker than you would like, stir in up to ½ c. more chicken broth to your desired consistency. Cook 2-3 minutes longer before serving.
  4. Taste stroganoff, and add salt and pepper to taste. Serve over cooked egg noodles.

 

Notes

This is even better the second day, so it’s great for lunch leftovers!

I made this it turned out really liquidy , next time I would use beef stock instead of chicken broth & less of the stock … I also added onions to it … It turned out OK but I know next time to reduce the beef stock & maybe just a 10 bit more flour

Just made this tonight and it was AMAZING!!!
I used ground beef and subbed low-sodium beef broth. The Greek Yogurt tastes better than the sour cream version. I love that the ingredient swaps are healthier than canned, cream soups.
Adding to my permanent recipe list! :)
Thanks!

Quick tip on the noodles…no need to toss with oil, just drain, rinse and let sit in fresh unsalted tap water until needed, stir through the sauce/meat to warm or do a quick reheat before combining with the meat/sauce. How do you think restaurants/diners keep noodles/spaghetti for their pasta dishes? ;-)

Thanks so much for the tip, Diane! I hope you’ve had a good weekend.

Why are some of your recipes not available to send to e-mail? I don’t have a printer attached to my e-mail acct.

Hi, Michele. I don’t have a feature to email just a recipe (because I don’t know how to do that). You can email a link. If you want to get just to the recipe, click on the “Print” button and use that link. Hope that helps!

This recipe is AWESOME! I am a huge stroganoff fan but on my strict diet I haven’t been able to have it, your recipe has all the foods I can eat! I added onions to mine because I love onions, going to try with chicken next (strips not ground). Thanks for posting!

Why would you name this Hamburger Stroganoff, and in the ingredients substitute Turkey? While I do love Turkey at Thanksgiving and Christmas, I cannot stand ground turkey at the store. I have tried every combination of cooking with turkey, from Rachel Ray’s web-site to Robert Irvine. Every dish I’ve made has a funky turkey flavor that none of my family likes nor any of my friends. I tried to give away the turkey spaghetti and not even my son would take it, and he eats anything. Why not substituent Chicken instead of Turkey? That would be a whole lot better than Turkey, in my opinion. They should both be healthy alternatives. But please, call it Chicken Stroganoff or Turkey Stroganoff, not Hamburger. If I would have know it was Turkey, I would not have even clicked on the link.

Hi, David. Wow! You really don’t like ground turkey! I mentioned a couple times in the description above the recipe that ground beef or turkey works well in this recipe, but you are right that I left out the “or beef” part in the actual recipe text. I made that change, and I hope you will reconsider giving it a try with whatever ground meat you like! Thanks for your comment.

Kathy Schmidt

I agree David I’m not a fan of ground turkey either. I do llike ground chicken. If you would prefer thigh meat to breast because it does have more flavor you can “grind” it in your food processor. I’m going to try it and will let you know how it turned out. I also think its important to use mushrooms that will add more flavor suchas; baby portabella.

Andi

Thanks for stopping by, Kathy. I love that baby portabellas have been easy to find in my grocery stores lately. Maybe they are becoming popular! You can use whatever ground meat you like in this recipe. Have a great weekend!

DAVID: Wow, could you have been any more rude when posting your comment?! This recipe ‘clearly’ stated that you could use ground turkey instead of ground beef. If you didn’t like the way this recipe sounded (or was titled) just X out of it…. instead of shooting your mouth off in such a terribly rude manner! If you read the entire post, you would have seen that Andi wasn’t quite sure what to name this recipe…. since you could use ‘either’ ground beef ‘or’ ground turkey. So, by posting your (so-called) ‘review’, you showed how very ignorant you (actually) are. If you’re such a terrific cook and also a (wanna-be) Food Critic, give us the address of YOUR blog, so that we can (all) critique your recipes!

This looks outstanding Andi! I do think think this is a dinner my kids would love! How love meaty those mushrooms look-great pic!

Andi

Thank you, Tanya! I was afraid this was going to be another gray, unappetizing looking food even though it tastes really good (like the simmered steaks last week), so I was excited that the photos actually turned out well! I even got one on foodgawker yesterday :)
