My Mushroom Stroganoff recipe is really popular so I thought I would come up with a similar beef Stroganoff for all those who prefer a meat dish. It is really easy to make and all the family will enjoy it. Not only that but as it is made in a similar way to the mushroom stroganoff if, like us, some of the family are vegetarian and some are meat-eaters it is easy to cook them alongside each other in separate pans!

It is the reader’s responsibility to check Slimming World syn values, WW points and any other allowances themselves as those given are approximate.

Choosing the beef for this recipe

The best beef for this recipe is sliced steak or beef chunks. It is important to avoid stewing steak as this is tougher and works much better in slow-cooked recipes when the beef is slowly stewed.

The beef needs to have all visible fat removed. This is partly to keep you healthy but also to ensure the dish tastes nice and isn’t just greasy and fatty unnecessarily!

Enjoying the Beef Stroganoff for weight loss

If you follow Slimming World, Weight Watchers (WW), Noom or any other weight loss plan you can usually count the ingredients within this recipe in your allowances. It is of course important to check yourself any plan you follow and remember all nutritional information and ingredients are found in the recipe card below.

This recipe is perfect to enjoy on Slimming World as in my opinion it is syn free and incorporates lots of your speed vegetables.

To make it even healthier you could serve it with cauliflower rice or add extra vegetables on the side such as broccoli.

Making this recipe – a few easy steps

This is a really easy recipe to make so please don’t be put off. If you can make something like a spaghetti bolognese then you can make a beef stroganoff it really is pretty foolproof!

If you are serving it with rice then I would suggest putting the rice on to cook at around the same time as you start the beef stroganoff. If it is cooked sooner it will stay warm so don’t worry too much.

Firstly, spray a large frying pan or wok with low-calorie cooking spray and place over medium heat. As it warms up add the beef strips or pieces and fry, stirring occasionally until cooked throughout.

Remove the beef from the pan and empty out any liquid that has come out of the beef and then wipe the pan of any residue before returning the pan to the heat.

Leftovers of your healthy Beef Stroganoff

Any leftovers of the recipe can easily be put into a microwavable container to reheat in the next 3 days.

The healthy beef stroganoff can be frozen either with or without the rice in portions and defrosted before reheating.

When reheating the healthy beef stroganoff it can occasionally lead the fromage frais in the recipe to split and change the appearance slightly. If this happens it is merely an aesthetic issue and it should still taste good.
