Beef Stroganoff is a simple yet decadent dish that can easily be transformed into a low carb feast. While a traditional stroganoff is typically served over rice or pasta, we keep our version keto friendly and stick to just the beef, cream and veggies. Hearty beef dinners are a staple in your weight loss menu. Stay on plan and prepare a meal that the whole family will love with classic flavors and simple ingredients.

To make this homestyle stroganoff, simmer sautéed steak strips, garlic, onions and mushrooms in beef broth and heavy cream to create a creamy sauce. After about 15 minutes, add sour cream, salt and pepper to the pan and garnish with parsley before serving. Enjoy it over a bed of cauliflower rice, cooked spaghetti squash or spiralized zucchini as a low carb alternative to rice and pasta.
