Beef Stroganoff with Greek Yogurt Sauce
Nothing feeds a growing family like a hearty, home-cooked meal. Beef stroganoff
has always been a traditional dinner dish as generations of families have gathered
around the table to share in this robust meal. It's no wonder that families have
fallen in love with the rich, velvety sauce of seared beef and mushrooms that perfectly
complement a warm bed of noodles. Our version of this dinnertime favorite holds
true to the familiar flavors while adding creamy Cabot Greek Yogurt, smoky paprika,
and baby bella mushrooms for a healthier, heartier sauce.
