Beef Stroganoff with Whole Wheat Egg Noodles

This is what we ate for dinner tonight and it’s so good, I just had to share a photo and point you over to Elise’s wonderful Beef Stroganoff recipe at Simply Recipes. I’ve also been meaning to tell you how much my husband and I have been enjoying whole wheat egg noodles, and this is the perfect excuse to do so!

So far, the only brand I’ve tried is Ronzoni Healthy Harvest, but they are so good I haven’t wanted to try any other kind.  While this Beef Stroganoff recipe is far from healthy, at least we’re getting some extra fiber and protein from the egg noodles (twisted logic, I know). Each serving of the pasta contains 6 grams of fiber and 8 grams of protein.  Not bad, huh?

Of course there are probably healthier ways to enjoy whole wheat egg noodles, but lately I just can’t stop craving comfort foods!  If you’re in the same boat, you can at least make small changes (like using whole grain pasta) to increase the nutritional value of these not-so-healthy meals.  I think I’ll use these whole wheat egg noodles the next time I make Tuna Noodle Casserole, too!  They really are good.

Now back to the Beef Stroganoff.  I followed Elise’s recipe to a T and it is absolutely delicious!  The fresh tarragon and fresh-grated nutmeg sets this Stroganoff apart from anything I’ve had before.  And I suggest using a nice cut of beef just like she suggests.  I found some tenderloin in the freezer (how on earth did I forget about that?) and it turned this into a special occasion-worthy dish.  What’s the special occasion?  Well, is it wrong to still be celebrating my birthday?

I’m kidding, I grudgingly gave up the birthday celebrating early Monday morning when Justin woke me up asking if I could help him get out the door on time by making him some coffee.  Oh well, the party can’t last forever!

But tonight, with this meal, it kind of feels like a party all over again.  I hope you get a chance to try the Stroganoff at least once this season, it’s the perfect thing to warm you up on these cool winter nights!

I’ll be back with my own recipes soon.  Expect many more fattening recipes throughout December!

    Looks like it turned out well. Much better looking than the leftover turkey casserole I had tonight:-)

    What a great inspiration. I haven’t had Beef Stroganoff in a long time. I would probably deglaze the pan with a couple of tablespoons of sherry or beef broth. And yes, the good cut of beef is a must!

    I’m making this tomorrow night, i’ll let you know how it turns out!

    My dad used to make beef stroganoff for us all the time growing up and it was so good. The pictrure of your dinner totally just took me back there again.

    I’m always on the lookout for a good whole wheat noodle. I’ll have to give this one a try.

    Hi Nicole, so glad you like the recipe! It’s one of my favorites. One time I had to make dinner for my friend’s kids and made this recipe, used “lemon yogurt” instead of the sour cream, and it still turned out all right. A little sweet (oops!) but the kids loved it. 😉

    This looks absolutely delish!!!! I agree with the rest that the whole wheat noodle is a nice addition. This recipe definitely brings a new and improved “beef stroganoff” vision to my mind! Thanks for the recipe, I’ll have to try this ASAP, especially in the colder winter months 🙂

    Tried it. Absolutely delish. Only thing I did differently was add a a tablespoon of Sherry and two tablespoons of beef broth to deglaze the pan after sauteing the shallots and mushrooms. That adds a nice depth to the sauce.
