Faux Ground Beef Stroganoff (Turkey)

Faux Ground Beef Stroganoff (Turkey) created by yogiclarebear

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

directions

  • Brown turkey well in a large frying pan.
  • 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.
  • (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.
  • You can add mushroom, peas, onions or whatever to this.
  • If I add onions and mushrooms, I usually saute them with the turkey.
  • Serve over egg noodles, with a big salad and a slice of french bread.

    This recipe was amazing! Instead of a packet of brown gravy mix, I used reduced sodium turkey gravy, and I added chunks of fresh garlic while cooking the ground turkey (I love garlic). I would have added onion and peas as well, but I didn't have them on hand. This was the perfect stroganoff recipe for my husband because he doesn't like mushrooms at all unless they are hidden by lots of pizza toppings. He loved this meal so much he had two huge helpings of it. Also, I used whole wheat egg noodles (the Catelli brand). All in all, it was a successful recipe that I will definitely be using again. Thanks dgpat!

    I really loved this easy recipe. So good and easy to prepare. Why didnt think to make this earlier?<br/>Had all the simple staple ingredents on hand. <br/>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. )<br/>A huge hit with the hubby. I also added green peas. <br/>Made a good amount for leftovers. <br/>Thanks for posting, dgpat.

    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 enjoyed this yummy, inexpensive comfort food. I used only 1/2 pound of ground turkey and just under 3/4 cup sour cream in order to stretch my food budget. I sliced and cooked 1/2 package of mushrooms and 1/2 onion with the turkey. I served it over rice.
