Who grew up eating Hamburger Helper Beef Stroganoff raise a hand 🖐 Us too! While we can’t say that the boxed dinner version of the recipe is our favorite, we do love this Keto Beef Stroganoff that’s made with fresh whole ingredients in just one pan in less than 30 minutes.

What is Beef Stroganoff?

Beef Stroganoff or Beef Stroganov is a Russian dish of sautéed pieces of beef in a sauce with smetana (smetana is a type of sour cream). It originated in the mid-19th-century in Russia and has become increasingly popular around the world. Recipes vary but this one is the closest to what we remember eating growing up, just ketofied 😉

Ingredients in this Keto Beef Stroganoff recipe

  • thinly sliced steak – we used beef tenderloin but you could use top sirloin, filet mignon, ribeye, or even ground beef for a ground beef stroganoff
  • extra-virgin olive oil – we LOVE Bragg
  • unsalted butter
  • yellow onion – any color will work if that’s what you have on hand
  • mushrooms – we used your typical cremini mushroom but we love wild shrooms too, you can use whatever type you like
  • garlic cloves – always fresh, never prepackaged garlic as it doesn’t have the right flavor to mimic fresh
  • sea salt
  • black pepper – freshly ground is preferable
  • beef broth – you can use vegetable broth or chicken broth if that’s what you have on hand
  • dijon mustard
  • Worcestershire sauce – most Worchestershire sauce is gluten-free, both Lea and Perrins which is arguably the most common household brand, but we use a love Annie’s
  • sour cream

How to make low carb beef stroganoff

  1. Heat a 10” (or larger) cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil, followed by the beef in a single layer. Season generously with salt and pepper.
  2. Cook until browned, about 1 minute on each side, then remove from the skillet and set aside. Cook beef in batches to avoid crowding the pan.
  3. Reduce heat to medium, add butter, mushrooms, and onion to the pan, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5-7 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  4. Stir in beef stock, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Add in the dijon, Worcestershire sauce, and sour cream until smooth and creamy and sauce begins to thicken, about 5 minutes.
  5. Serve over a bed of cauliflower rice or with any noodle replacement of choice.

Pretty simple eh? We love this recipe and it’s always a hit.

How to make Beef Stroganoff dairy-free

Simple! Make the following swaps:

  • Use vegan butter in place of regular butter (we like Miyokos)
  • Use a vegan sour cream in place of regular (we like Forager)

How to store leftovers

We partial to these glass meal prep containers. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. We love eating leftovers cold but if you’d like to reheat simply heat back up in a skillet or in the microwave.

What to serve with this 30 minute one pan dinner

Beef Stroganoff is usually served with egg noodles. While delicious, they are neither gluten free or low carb. Here are a few options:

  • cauliflower rice
  • low carb pasta noodles
  • zucchini noodles
  • with steamed broccoli
