Now that the weather is getting a little cooler, I find myself grilling less and using my slow cooker more. One of my favorite cool weather meals is beef stroganoff. Since Jay and I both have been trying to watch what we are eating and “lighten up” some of our favorite meals, I figured a lighter version of my favorite crock pot beef stroganoff was in order.
Crock pot beef stroganoff is one of my favorite meals for busy weeknights simply because it is so easy to make. I wanted to make sure that my more modern and lighter version was still easy or I knew I would never make it. Turns out I was able to just make a few substitutions to lighten up my recipe and it was still as easy and as tasty as ever!
To make cooking the recipe as easy as possible, I take a few shortcuts: I buy already cut up beef stew meat, I buy chopped frozen onions and washed and sliced mushrooms. Of course, you can use whatever works best for you! How did I lighten up the recipe? I removed 1/2 lb of the meat and replaced it with portobello mushrooms, replaced full fat dairy products with fat free, and replaced regular egg noodles with No Yolks Noodles which stay nice and fluffy and light when you cook them.
