Lighter Ground Beef Stroganoff

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure policy.

With currently doing Weight Watchers, I have started to look at some of my favorite recipes and making some healthier swaps so I can still enjoy those recipes. Today, I am sharing my lighter ground beef stroganoff recipe. I have several that I love, but this version is the one that work best to lighten up.

My goal when I lighten up a recipe is to still keep the same taste. I want my family to have no clue that I lightened up the recipe. I totally succeeded with this version. Both my husband and daughter thought it was my standard stroganoff recipe. This recipe could be made even more WW personal point friendly, but I don’t want to sacrifice the flavor.

I kept the same regular egg noodles. This is a way that you could reduce the points even more if you opt for a gluten free option or whole wheat version. Next, I used light sour cream. This lowers the fat content significantly. You could lower it even more by using a fat free sour cream or 0% Greek yogurt.

Another swap I made was using a 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup. This reduces the whole recipe by 3 points. You also need to be sure your beef in the 95% lean. That swap will also reduce the entire recipe by 9 points. After all my swaps, this recipe come out to be 10 WW Personal Points per serving. The original recipe is 15 points per serving.
