beef stroganoff recipe large

Here is another great muscle building recipe that I simply love. This recipe is super easy to make, very nutritious and tastes awesome. Total prep time is about 20 minutes or so.


  • 1 cup of whole wheat spaghetti or linguine

  • 16 oz beef, thawed. You can also use extra lean ground beef or extra lean ground turkey

  • 2 tsp olive oil

  • 1/2 cup onion

  • 1 cup mushrooms

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper

  • 8 tbsp fat free sour cream

  • 6 oz water

  • 1 tsp chopped parsley

  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg

  • 1/2 tsp minced garlic

  • 2 tsp mayonnaise


Cook and drain spaghetti and set aside. You can also cook your beef while the spaghetti is boiling.

Cut beef into long, thin strips.

Heat olive oil in a large saute pan. Saute onion, mushrooms, black pepper, parsley, nutmeg, and garlic. Add beef and mayonnaise. Add water to dilute. Stir the mixture around to mix the mayonnaise. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 to 40 minutes or until beef is tender. Add sour cream. Stir well. Pour over spaghetti.
