(Fake) Crab Stroganoff

Total Time

Our son always loved this recipe. He never knew it was made with you-know-what, FAKE crab, until after he worked on a crab boat a few years ago! Of course, you can always use real crab. It's easy to put together and with a salad it makes a nice meal. I always make it with lowfat sour cream, lowfat soup, and I just use butter flavored cooking spray to replace the butter. When done this way it cuts out almost all the fat, and it's still good.

Delicious, PotPie! Used some dry white wine in place of the Marsala; but I bet the Marsala is wonderful in this...Next time! Served over linguini. YUM! Definitely a keeper!

This was very good. I added a little Old Bay seasoning to the sauce but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I wonder how this would taste with shrimp and/or scallops.

The low fat subs might not have richness of their full fat brothers but they make it possible to have lovely dishes like this. I used No Yolk noodles, low fat mushroom soup, fat free evaporated milk and low fat sour cream. The (fake)crab in place of beef was a lovely change. I did add some finely diced onion to the mushroom saute. Thank you for a dinner dish that I'll make again with no guilt.
