Keto Beef Stroganoff

This is one of my favorite comfort foods, even without a mountain of buttered egg noodles. I slow cook a big batch of it on the weekends and get to enjoy it for lunches throughout the week. This keto beef stroganoff makes me all warm and fuzzy inside.

  • 2 lbs stew beef
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp onion powder
  • 2 cups crimini mushrooms
  • 1 large yellow onion chopped finely
  • 4-5 cloves garlic chopped finely
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 2 tbsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 cup white wine optional
  • 4 cups low sodium beef broth
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 5 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 lemon
  • 1 bunch Italian parsley for garnish optional
  • Salt & Pepper


  • Season the beef with paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper.
  • Heat a large skillet on high. Add a pad of butter and brown meat in batches. Set aside.
  • Add pad of butter and crimini mushrooms to pan. Cook 4-5 minutes until browned. Set aside.
  • Reduce heat to medium. Add pad of butter and onions. Sprinkle some salt and sauté for 4-5 minutes until translucent. Add garlic and cook through.
  • Add tomato paste and Dijon mustard. Mix well and warm through. Set aside.
  • Deglaze pan with white wine and reduce by half.
  • Combine all the ingredients previously set aside back into the pan. Add beef broth and nutmeg then bring to a boil. Reduce heat to a low simmer.
  • Cook for 4-5 hours until meat is tender.
  • 20 minutes before serving, add sour cream and lemon. An additional pad of butter is also recommended to give a nice shine to the sauce (and what's a little more butter?). Season with additional salt if necessary. Garnish with some chopped parsley and serve.
