Originating in Russia, Beef Stroganoff or Stroganov is a dish of sauteed beef served with smetana (a European soured cream). We’ve cut the carbs in it to create this delicious keto version.

No canned soups or ready-made packets of anything, and no coating the beef with any flour. Just a beautiful, silky cream sauce with a hint of wine aromas gently simmering away on the stove.

To avoid chewy beef, make sure to only sear the strips of meat for a short amount of time – that way they stay tender. Just two simple rules for juicy, tender beef: using the right cut…

The best cut of meat for beef and mushroom stroganoff

The best cuts of beef for stroganoff are tender, juicy cuts such as boneless rib eye, boneless sirloin, sirloin steak tips or beef tenderloin. They stay tender during the cooking process without drying out and causing overly chewy pieces of meat in your sauce.

There are so many different variations of Beef Stroganoff: some with or without sour cream, and some using brandy instead of wine. During testing, my family, friends, and everyone who tried it absolutely loved this version the most. I also include Dijon mustard in this one. And don´t forget to make this sauce pretty much perfection.

And another tip is the 30 Second Sear. A super quick sear in a smoking hot skillet. And when I say super quick, I truly mean it. 30 seconds on each side, if you miss some pink bits too bad! 

Leftover beef stroganoff can be stored in the fridge for up to 1 week or frozen for up to 3 months. To reheat place the keto beef stroganoff in a saucepan over low heat or use the low power option on your microwave.
