Faux Ground Beef Stroganoff (Turkey)

Total Time

This is made with ground turkey, which has a lot less calories and fat than ground beef. Even people who don't like ground turkey like this! As usual, fast, easy and tasty, and a nice comfort food.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown turkey well in a large frying pan.
  2. When brown, add the brown gravy mix, water, herbs and pepper Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and let slow boil for 15-20 minutes to thicken the sauce.
  3. (the sauce does have to thicken or it will be too watery and thin. You could use less water but this slow boiling keeps the turkey moist and adds the beef flavor to the turkey. If you do use the canned gravy, skip the 2-1/2 cups of water, but do add at least a cup) Add sour cream, mix well and serve.
  4. You can add mushroom, peas, onions or whatever to this.
  5. If I add onions and mushrooms, I usually saute them with the turkey.
  6. Serve over egg noodles, with a big salad and a slice of french bread.

We added a can of cream of mushroom because it turned out dry, but absolutely delishous! We loved the dill in it! We had no leftovers. It was quick on a weeknight.

I really loved this easy recipe. So good and easy to prepare. Why didnt think to make this earlier?
Had all the simple staple ingredents on hand.
Also added some white wine, beef bullion,some Gravy Master, and sub'ed ricotta for sour cream and served it with mixed leftover pasta which I had in the pantry (penne and egg noodles. )
A huge hit with the hubby. I also added green peas.
Made a good amount for leftovers.
Thanks for posting, dgpat.

Absolutely delicious! This tasted so much like beef. DH loved it as well. I used extra-lean ground turkey, brown gravy mix, and fat-free sour cream. I added onion and peas as well. I also added a crushed beef bullion cube for extra beefy taste. The long simmer really makes the flavor wonderful. I served this over toast. Thank you dgpat.
