Mom’s Lightened Beef Stroganoff from Skinnytaste

I always love a good Beef Stroganoff, but I always make my Beef Stroganoff in the crock pot. When I came across this recipe for Mom’s Beef Stroganoff that was made on the stove top, I decided I needed to try it.  All of the other Skinnytaste recipes I’ve tried have turned out really good, so I knew this one would probably be good.

[Adapted recipe from Skinnytaste]


  • 1-1/2 lbs lean tri-tip sirlion steak, cut in thin 1/4″ x 2″ strips
  • 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 10 oz of sliced mushrooms
  • 1 can of Campbell’s tomato soup
  • 1 cup of beef broth
  • 1 small fresh bay leaf
  • 2 teaspoons worcestershire sauce
  • 2/3 cup of light sour cream


In a heavy saucepan (I used a Dutch Oven), heat pan over high heat. When pan is hot, add the  oil and let it heat up for about a minute or so. Add steak and let it brown on all sides. Remove meat from pan.

Lower heat, melt butter, then add onions. Cook about 2-3 minutes until translucent, add garlic and mushrooms and sauté about 2-3 more minutes until cooked.

Add a can of tomato soup, steak, beef broth, bay leaf, and Worcestershire sauce. Cover and cook on low about 40 minutes. Remove bay leaf and mix in sour cream.

Serve over noodles or rice.

I served Sunny Anderson’s Easy String Beans & Onions with this meal as well. They are my favorite! So…I thought this was a really good dish! As you can see we had ours over Noodles.  I think the next time I might cook the meat in the liquid for a little longer – maybe an hour or so. I thought it could’ve been a bit more tender, but I still enjoyed it. I LOVED the addition of the sour cream, and I think the bay leaf is a key ingredient. This meal is a keeper and leftovers the next day for lunch were delicious as well!

  1. I haven’t had beef stroganoff in so long! Probably at least 10 years possibly 12. This sounds incredible! I’m always looking for skinny versions of delicious dishes. Great recipe!

  2. This looks great! I always have extra pieces of tri tip to use when I buy one since they’re so big.
