Beef Stroganoff? (Gluten and Top 8 Free)

"What's for dinner?"  They never stop asking this question!  And I don't usually have something in mind.  I'd love to be a better meal planner, but lately I've resorted to winging it.

For some reason, beef stroganoff came to mind tonight.  It's not something I've ever made before, or even knew where to start to make it safe for my kids.  I was even more lost after looking up recipes online.  Mushrooms?  We don't keep those on hand.  I needed to make do with what was in my pantry and fridge.

Here's what I came up with.  I'm not sure it actually qualifies as beef stroganoff, but that's what we're calling it tonight.  All four kids ate it up and asked for seconds, so it is definitely blog post worthy.

 Need s a quick and easy dinner for your busy weeknights?  This is it.

Ingredients:

Gluten-free noodles (cooked and drained)
1 lb ground beef, cooked (I used grass-fed only beef) 
1 c dairy-free yogurt (I used So Delicious vanilla yogurt)
1 c beef or chicken broth
2 Tbsp dairy-free butter (I used Earth Balance Soy Free)
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp onion powder
1 Tbsp parsley
1-2 Tbsp corn starch (or enough to make sauce as thick as you want)

Instructions:
While noodles and beef are cooking, mix together yogurt, broth, butter, and seasonings over medium heat.  Whisk in corn starch as needed until sauce is desired thickness.  Mix sauce into cooked beef.

I mixed the noodles and beef together, but you could easily just top the noodles with the beef mixture if you so choose.

I also added a few shakes of nutritional yeast for a little cheesy flavor.  You can really use any seasonings you'd like.  This list just happens to be what I grabbed from my spice rack.  Also, measurements are approximate.  I really just dumped things in a pan and hoped for the best.
