Turkey stroganoff recipe gives tangy blend of flavors

Turkey Stroganoff with Egg Noodles. TNS

Turkey stroganoff, an old Russian standby, can be made with turkey breast meat or leftover homemade cooked turkey. If you use cooked turkey, add about 2 cups at the end of the recipe. This will allow it to warm through in the sauce. The mixture of mushrooms, tomato paste and mustard gives the stroganoff sauce a tangy blend of flavors and a thick texture. It tastes even better the next day. If you have time, double the recipe and save the extra for another quick dinner.

Helpful Hints:

Diced fresh onions can be found in the produce section of the supermarket.

Any type of mushrooms can be used.

Use a skillet that is just big enough to hold the meat in one layer. The sauce will boil away in a larger skillet.


Place water for noodles on to boil.
