Turkey Stroganoff Recipe

Beyond the Beef

Traditionally, stroganoff is made with beef. However, ground turkey offers a lighter and healthier alternative, while still delivering rich, savory flavors. It readily absorbs the delicious sauce, making each bite a delight.

Mushrooms and Worcestershire Sauce Add Depth of Flavor

This recipe goes beyond the basics, doctoring up the classic stroganoff experience with a few key additions. Sliced mushrooms add an earthy depth, while the garlic-shallot puree provides a touch of aromatic complexity. Sour cream and Worcestershire sauce create a creamy and tangy base, and fresh herbs like thyme or rosemary elevate the flavor profile with a touch of sophistication.

Turkey Stroganoff

Recipe by Jason Hill –
This easy turkey stroganoff recipe uses ground turkey, but you can also substitute ground beef or ground chicken in its place. Ground turkey stroganoff is certainly not the classic version, but my kids love it, and it comes together in roughly 30 minutes.
I doctor it up with sliced mushrooms, garlic-shallot puree, sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, and fresh herbs (such as thyme or rosemary).
