Ingredients:

  • 1 lb. extra lean top round roast
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 8 oz. cremini mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • ¼ cup fresh parsley, chopped

  • 1 cup two percent fat-free plain Greek yogurt
  • 2 cups whole wheat egg noodles, uncooked

  3. Cover and cook on low for six to seven hours.
  4. About 30 minutes before it’s done, add in the cornstarch/broth mixture. Continue cooking until sauce has thickened. Then, stir in the Greek yogurt.
