Things around our house have been pretty hectic lately, so I was looking for something quick and relatively easy for a weeknight meal. This dish is pretty down-and dirty, but at the same time, it had a wonderful rich flavor, was very filling and much lower in fat and calories than a traditional stroganoff.

I used 95-percent lean ground beef and sauteed it with fresh mushrooms and onion with garlic and mustard powder. You'll want to be sure to drain off any fat and the liquid from the mushrooms. I added a combination of low-fat sour cream, low-fat mayonnaise and low-sodium beef broth. The flavors of beef, mushrooms and sauce all came through individually and melded together wonderfully. And all for 322 calories with 13 grams of fat and 1 gram of fiber. I served it with steamed fresh green beans.

Let's eat!

Deal of the day: All the heat we're having has me craving my sister's margaritas. Amazon has this margarita glass set on sale for $14.99.

About Me
I love food! But I let that love get the best of me and my weight ballooned to more than 300 pounds. My wife and I joined Weight Watchers and, over a three-year period, I lost 100 pounds. However, I refused to give up on the foods I love, from Alfredo to cheeseburgers. I set out to find ways to eat almost anything I wanted, but to prepare it in a healthy way. Now, I'm sharing my love of food and cooking with others interested in living a healthy lifestyle.
