Make Ahead and Freeze Instructions
  1. In one gallon freezer bag, place meat, drained mushrooms, onion, apple juice beef base, garlic, thyme and pepper.
  2. Place one container Greek yogurt in one quart zipper bag.(Freezing can make yogurt liquid separate. Just stir it back together before adding to the stroganoff.) Place it and the meat package into a second gallon zipper bag, label and freeze.
  3. Mark one bag of noodles "Stroganoff" and place in pantry.
  4. Thaw overnight before cooking as above.
