  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 12 ounces cremini mushrooms (sliced thick)
  • 1 small yellow onion (diced)
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced. About 1/4-1/3 cup)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons dried thyme
  • 2 teaspoons Paprika
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 8 ounces uncooked egg noodles
  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt (I used 2% fat, but nonfat works too!)
  • 2–3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

In a large, deep sided skillet or dutch oven melt the butter on medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and onions. Sauté, stirring occasionally until the mushrooms are tender and lightly browned. This should take about 5 minutes.
Add ground beef to the mushrooms and onions and season with salt and pepper. Brown and crumble the beef, cooking for 3-5 minutes. Once the beef is crumbled and browned, add the garlic, thyme, and paprika. Cook for about 1 minute until the garlic is fragrant.
Stir in the flour for about 1 minute until lightly browned. Add the broth and scrape any bits off the bottom of the pan. Air in dijon mustard and egg noodles.
Bring to a boil, cover the pan, reduce the heat to low and simmer until the noodles are cooked. About 8-10 minutes.
Once noodles are cooked, gently stir in the greek yogurt. Garnish with parsley and serve immediately.
