Beef Stroganoff

Don't expect this recipe to taste like your traditional creamy beef stroganoff.  However, this is a much lighter, much much more healthy version that omits all of the sour cream, heavy gluten filled noodles and all those extra calories.

1 lb beef sirloin, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 large onion, chopped
3 cups sliced mushrooms
1 carrot, sliced
4 cloves garlic, minced or pressed
1/2 cup low-sodium beef broth (be sure to confirm it is gluten-free)
1 cup whole plain greek yogurt
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste

1. Brown the beef in a large nonstick skillet coated with olive oil cooking spray
2. Add onion, mushroom, carrot, garlic and continue to cook another 6-8 min
3. Add beef broth, salt, pepper, bring to a low boil
4. Add yogurt 1 tbsp at a time, stirring constantly
5. Cover and simmer for 15 min on medium-low heat
6. Remove lid, add cheese and stir until blended

Serving Suggestion: We served ours over Spaghetti Squash noodles but you can try quinoa noodles or your other favorite gluten-free noodle.

A view of Step #2:
Note that this recipe contains dairy so it's not Paleo, but it is still gluten-free!
