Spring Stroganoff


Give beef stroganoff a plant-based spin by reducing the meat and noodles and adding loads more veggies. It's a fresher, prettier dish than the classic.

6 cups


  • 4 - 6 ounce dried mafalda pasta, broken into 2-inch pieces, or mini lasagna noodles

  • 1 bunch (12-oz.) asparagus, trimmed and cut lengthwise into thin strips

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen peas

  • 8 ounce beef flank steak or sirloin steak (optional)

  • 2 tablespoon butter

  • 3 cup sliced mixed fresh mushrooms, such as cremini, shiitake, baby bella, beech, or hen of the woods

  • ½ cup sliced green onions

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • ½ cup dry white wine, dry sherry, or additional beef broth

  • 1 ½ cup reduced-sodium beef broth or vegetable broth

  • 1 5-8 ounce carton plain whole milk Greek yogurt or sour cream

  • 2 tablespoon all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest


  1. Cook pasta according to package directions, adding asparagus and peas the last 2 minutes of cooking; drain.

  2. Meanwhile, trim fat from meat. Thinly slice meat across the grain into bite-size strips and season with 1/4 tsp. kosher salt. In a 10-inch skillet melt 1 Tbsp. of the butter. Brown meat, half at a time, turning once. Remove meat from skillet; cover to keep warm.

  3. In the same skillet melt the remaining 1 Tbsp. butter. Cook mushrooms, green onions, and garlic over medium-high 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add wine; cook and stir until bubbly, scraping browned bits from bottom of pan. Stir in meat and beef broth.

  4. In a small bowl stir together yogurt, flour, and lemon zest; stir into meat mixture. Cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 1 minute more. Season with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper. Add pasta mixture; toss to combine. Serves 4.

Instead of noodles, you could serve this over sauteed zucchini noodles or cauliflower rice.
