Cheat Mushroom Stroganoff FAQ’s
It’s a simple, classic Russian noodle dish traditionally made with Beef, a variation of spices and sour cream.
You sure can! Just add your meat to the pan with the onions after step 2. Once it is browned, continue to step 3. I would recommend ground beef.
As always, I encourage you to take this dish and run with it! You can add other veggies like peas, carrots, or broccoli.
Or add oyster mushrooms or even porcini mushrooms to really bring out the umami. Or maybe you want it to have a little kick. Crushed red pepper is a great way to add some heat.
Totally. Opt for a reduced fat soup and use oil instead of butter. Easy as that!
I love this dish with wide egg noodles. In my grocery store, they are actually found in both the regular pasta section as well as the international aisle in the Israeli section. You can also use regular egg noodles with a delicious outcome.
Green tip: Mushrooms are not only delicious but considered sustainable produce. They have a relatively small environmental footprint as they take little water and energy to grow and emit little CO2. Subbing them for beef here is a great way to reduce your ecological footprint.
