Beef Stroganoff is classic winter comfort food unfortunately it is also a classic winter calorie bomb. Originating in 19th century Russia and named after a person of high nobility the recipe has been altered a countless number of times throughout the ages. This Beef Stroganoff recipe takes measures to lighten the calories and taste great! It reminds me of my mom, home cooking, and is really easy to prepare. Our test kitchen was able to produce the dish in under 30 minutes start to table. The traditional dish requires the cook to make meatballs. Using a flank steak classes it up while cutting calories and prep time. By using Silk Pure Almond Unsweetened instead of 1% milk we were able to save 60 calories. Also, adding actual mushrooms and deglazing the pan really punches up the flavor.
