This is another one of those comfort food dishes. My version, like most does not truly resemble the version that surfaced in 1912. Still, I find it tasty and comforting. No picture for this one though, why? Well, true to its peasant food style I make my dish in a way that just plain isn’t pretty. You can doll this up by making the meat out of strips of steak or into meatballs but sometimes you just want to dig in to something comforting and tasty rather than pretty. This is for those times.
- 1 lb extra lean ground beef
- 1 pk onion soup mix
- 1/2 cup red wine
- 1 can fat free cream of celery soup
- 3 gloves of garlic, minced
- 1 cup fat free sour cream
- 3 tbs ketchup
- 1 tsp herbs de provence (optional, I love the flavour it adds though)
- 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- Sautee minced garlic until aromatic. Add ground beef and brown.
- Add soup mix, pepper, and herbs de provence. Mix.
- While stirring add the wine, canned soup (undiluted), sour cream, ketchup, and worcestershire sauce. Heat to a slight boil.
- Season with salt and pepper as needed. Serve. I usually serve this over egg noodles.
Serves 4, 335 calories each serving.
As a side note this recipe freezes very well for those times you don’t need four servings hanging around. Make your own comforting calorie wise frozen dinners! Just cook the noodles to just al dente, top with the stroganoff in a container, allow to cool and freeze. That way you can just pop them in the microwave for a couple of minutes and you are ready to go! I find it useful to mark the calories of the dish combined on the label of the dish so you can quickly count those calories too.
