This Ground Turkey Stroganoff is the epitome of comfort, doncha agree?!

There are many variations of this dish and my version is very modern and simplified. It is a family favorite and super simple to make!

This dinner is made with lean ground turkey and cooked in a creamy sauce in the slow cooker or crockpot for ease.

It’s one of those comfort foods that is so simple to make and has a relatively short ingredient list filled with pantry staple ingredients like Dijon mustard, Worcestershire and cream of mushroom soup!

Ground Turkey Stroganoff Ingredients

  • Ground Turkey: I chose ground turkey for a lighter option to this typical heavy meal. You can also use ground beef if you prefer.
  • White Mushrooms: Fresh white mushrooms work best. You could also use a combination of mushrooms such as white , baby bellas and cremini.
  • Cream of Mushroom Soup: Adds to the creamy, savory and comforting taste of this family dinnertime staple. You can also use cream of chicken soup in a pinch.
  • Beef Broth: You can use vegetable broth or chicken broth if you are out of beef broth.
  • Sour Cream: This gets added in at the very end for an extra creamy sauce. It’s optional, but we always add it in! No sour cream? You can use heavy cream or Greek yogurt instead.
  • Noodles: We love this ground turkey stroganoff served with tender egg noodles but you can really serve it with any noodle you like, or even rice!

Tips for Making Ground Turkey Stroganoff

  • Sauté the mushrooms, onions and garlic together. Don’t be shy on the mushrooms, add more if you prefer!
  • If you don’t have onions, shallots lend great flavor to stroganoff as well. They are more delicate in flavor.
  • Stir in the sour cream at the end, right before serving. No sour cream? You can use Greek yogurt! Place some sour cream on the table too for anyone who wants an extra dollop.
  • Serve ground turkey stroganoff with with any pasta shape you prefer, or even rice. Garnish with your desired toppings as well.


Can you Freeze Ground Turkey Stroganoff?

Yes – it is okay to freeze ground turkey stroganoff in an air tight container or baggie for up for 3 months.

How do I make this on the stove?

Follow the same instructions, but instead of pouring everything into your slow cooker, pour and mix it all into a large pot or stockpot. Heat until warm, being sure to stir occasionally.

I love that this is a light bit lighter of a take on a traditional stroganoff. Crock pot meal is an added bonus! Definitely a favorite in our house hold!

I made this last night. I added some spinach and extra mushrooms. My sauce turned out very watery despite draining the meat. I used reduced fat sour cream, not sure if that is the reason but I would use full fat next time!

No sure of your diatery goals/requirements but I add a bit of flour or cornstarch and it helped to thicken mine up a bit. 🙂

This was very good! I used lower sodium soup and beef broth to cut down on the salt. I also used plenty of fresh ground pepper. Delish!

Easy and yum yum yummy!! Accidentally forgot the “slow-cooker” part and prepared on the stove…still easy and delish. I’m not usually a stroganoff fan but I’m hooked on this particular recipe now.
