Mom's Beef Stroganoff




There are many variations of Beef Stroganoff recipes out there and chances are your favorite recipe is the one you grew up eating it as a child. Some like it with or without mushrooms, peas, wine, tomato sauce, etc.

This is the recipe I grew up eating (lightened up a bit). Now, I don't usually make recipes with canned soup, but I've always enjoyed this as a kid, so I thought I would share Mom's recipe. It's been years since I've eaten this, and this was my family's first time tasting it, so they were the deciding factor if this would get posted or not. Two thumbs up from my picky daughter! She loved it, even ate the mushrooms to our surprise!

Growing up we ate this over egg noodles but to lower the points, why not serve this over spaghetti squash?

    1. Looks great! I will have to try this really soon. Where did you find the pasta? If you say Trader Joe's I'm going to cry! There isn't one in TX. Also there is an empty dot in the recipe is something missing? By reading the recipe I don't think there is but I thought I would ask.

    4. Gina, Could you sub. ground turkey for the sirlion? How would that change the points?

    5. Would love a recipe for pulled pork, chicken, or beef. I have some but would like a lower pt. value recipe. Thanks

    6. Not sure why there's an extra dot there but nothing is missing.

      I linked to the Fiber Gourmet website, you can buy it online. Not sure where else you can find it?

    7. This is almost the same recipe my grandma has made every Christmas since I was a kid! The only difference is she adds chopped green peppers- adds good flavor and some more color. Thanks for bringing back the yummy memories :)

    8. I must be missing something. In the directions I see where you remove the meat after cooking but I don't see anything about when you add it back in. Assuming when you put the tomato soup, water etc in would be correct.Is that right?

    10. Dreamfield's pasta is good to and only 3 pts per serving. Only has 5 carbs per serving as well. For my fellow Texan, you can find it at Krogers. Black Box.

    12. I tried this recipe last night and it is delicious. Not sure what i did wrong though because the steak didn't come out very tender like i expected. i might try a different cut of meat next time. Overall I will definitely make this again!!!

    13. When I make beef stroganoff I substitute plain greek yogurt for sour cream, my picky husband never notices and I get reduced calories and tons more protein per serving

    14. Made this tonight it was FANTASTIC! I usually use a different recipe but this one is better. My husband agreed and told me to to use this one from now on....not so much left over. Thanks!

    15. Glad you liked it, this actually got my daughter to eat mushrooms, which she normally doesn't like. I don't think she even noticed them!

      ReplyDelete
    16. This was delicious! I subbed in carrots because my husband and I hate mushrooms, and it worked really well.

    17. can you subsitute can of tomato sauce for the tomato soup or cream of mushroom? i don't have this in my kitchen and i want to make it tomorrow.

    18. I haven't tried it, but I'm sure it would be ok.

      ReplyDelete
    19. Is the 7pt+ with or without the rice/pasta...I assume it is without, but I wanted to make sure!

      ReplyDelete
    20. This was fantastic! Didn't have steak in the freezer so I used beef country ribs and cut them as described in the recipe. It worked just as well - great tasting and tender. My hubby took leftovers today and said that this recipe is a keeper. Thanks, Gina, for a great recipe. (Noreen from PA)

    21. Yes, it's without.

      Noreen, I always enjoyed this myself growing up.

    22. If I use Sirloin Steak and add 1/2 cup of Red Wine how does this change the point value?

      ReplyDelete
    23. I'm not quite sure, you'll have to check on ww e tools.

    24. Would the Crockpot work for this dish?

      ReplyDelete
    25. I haven't tried, but it should be ok.

    26. I made this for supper tonight.........it was sooooooo good! I 'cut' the recipe - to make only one portion - and it's a good thing - because I'd have eaten 2 portions, if I'd had them! :)

    27. Another great dinner thanks to you! Delicious! Thank you so much

    30. This was really easy to make and very good. My hard to please husband loved it! Thanks.

    31. I just tried the "miracle noodles" and they would be GREAT with this recipe without adding any points at all.

      ReplyDelete
    32. I didnt see where it had the Pts + value. Is it 7 for both programs, old and +?
      Thanks so much, cant wait to try it! Hoping my picky daughter will eat the mushrooms as well :)

      Thanks

    35. Made this last night, no substitutions. It was a huge hit with the family. Definitely a keeper. Thanks for another great recipe, Gina.

    36. This was really delicious. Very flavorful. Although it was SUPER watery? Like way more watery than the picture. Wonder what I did wrong? Seems like I should have omitted the cup of water entirely.

      ReplyDelete
    37. Absolutely stunning, made for dinner tomorrow and must have had a portion just nibbling. Really wasn't sure I'd like something made with tinned soup!!!!! But it is gorgeous. Another success Gina x

    38. I made this tonight and it was very tasty. Mine was also very watery so I put noodles in it toward the end of cooking to absorb some of the liquid. Will probably reduce the amount of water I add next time. YUMMY!!!

      ReplyDelete
    39. Mine was really watery too. I don't think you need the water at all. Then I tried to burn off some of the liquid and overcooked the meat.. eeks. I will definitely try again though.

    40. Turned out really good! Thanks for another great one Gina, it's perfect for my shoe - string in grad school budget!

      ReplyDelete
    41. Hi Gina! thank you for the recipe:) do you know if this freezes well?

      ReplyDelete
    42. I had the same watery problem--I should have read through the comments first! The flavor was really great though, so I'll definitely be making this again without adding any water :-)

      ReplyDelete
    43. I wonder if anyone has had any success making this in the crockpot. I want to try it, but wanted to see if anyone had done it and what adjustments they might have made.

      ReplyDelete
    44. Hi! I just found your site and am excited to try your recipes! Working on a grocery list now. : ) I am a WW member and am curious, are the points listed just counting the stroganoff? I am assuming the egg noodles would be calculated separately?

      Can this be done in the crockpot? I used to make a crockpot version, but don't remember how..?

    46. I cooked mine in the crockpot tonight and it was WONDERFUL! I just found your website a week ago and visit 3-4 times a day for ideas. For those who may be looking for tips on crockpot, this is what I did. I first emptied tomato soup and worcestshire into crock on Low. While that was warming, I cut my onions, mushrooms (portabello), and garlic. I then began browning my meat. While that was browning, I sauteed the mushrooms, garlic and onion together. Poured it into crock. Finished meat and poured in with the rest of base in crock. My cut of meat wasn't the best, but I was so happy that it still turned out great (Angus Stew Meat--Pork Roast). I let this all simmer together for 4 hours on Low. I did not add the sour cream until the last hour. As far as the water question---my cooking method was different but I added 1/3 can water (from soup can) and the flavor and texture/consistency was amazing. Also, I tried yellow squash and zucchini noodles for the first time tonight and Oh my heavens, I'm never going back to grain. They were so light and smooth and a wonderful compliment to this Stroganoff. Thank you Gina! Keep 'em coming! I have found my inspiration!!!

    47. I am an idiot and forgot to add sour cream and IT WAS STILL AMAZING. :)
