  • 2 lbs boneless chuck roast trimmed lean
  • 1-1/2 cups diced carrots approximately 4
  • 1 large yellow onion diced
  • 8 oz mushrooms roughly chopped
  • 4 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 10.5 oz can fat free low sodium beef broth
  • 1/3 cup Light Sour Cream plus additional for garnish
  • Salt and pepper
  • Olive oil
  • 1 lb whole wheat fettuccine noodles
  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley plus additional for garnish


  • Trim chuck roast of fat and cube into 1-inch pieces. Liberally salt and pepper.
  • Lightly cover the bottom of a dutch oven with olive oil. Over a medium-high heat brown meat. Don't crowd and brown in batches if necessary. Remove meat.
  • Add carrots and onion to the pan and cook until slightly softened 3-4 minutes.
  • Reduce heat to medium. Add meat back into the pan.
  • Sprinkle with flour and allow to cook until no visible flour remains approximately 2 minutes.
  • Pour in beef broth and stir until thickened. Stir in the mushrooms.
  • Simmer for approximately 1 hour.
  • Cook pasta in salted water according to package directions.
  • Remove stroganoff from the heat. Salt and pepper as needed. Stir in Hiland Dairy Light Sour Cream and parsley.
  • Serve over noodles and garnish with additional Light Sour Cream and parsley.


Simmering beef will allow it to tenderize and will enhance flavor. Cooking time can be reduced if desired.
