Do you know the origins of beef stroganoff?
Beef Stroganoff is a Russian dish of sautéed pieces of beef served in a sauce with sour cream. From its origins in mid-19th-century Russia, it has become popular around the world, with considerable variation from the original recipe.”
My low carb version is a super-filling recipe with steak, mushrooms, paprika, beef broth, and sour cream! Although traditionally made with cheaper cuts of beef, I have used steak and then added it later into the cooking time than normal. You could also choose to cook the steak whole, then slice it just before adding it to the sauce. It depends on how you like your beef!
Oh and don't skip the parsley and sprinkling of paprika garnish – it really gives the dish a touch of flavor and color!
How to Make Low Carb Beef Stroganoff
Pour some olive oil into a cast iron skillet and add some cubed sirloin steak. Cook until browned all over.
Transfer the steak to a plate. In the same pan, add a little more oil and add some sliced white mushrooms. Continue to cook until they have softened slightly, about 5 minutes.
Add beef broth (I love the gorgeous bone broth from Kettle and Fire), together with some heavy cream, onion powder, and paprika, and bring to the boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Return the steak to the skillet, stir well, and cook for another 5 minutes.
To finish the sauce, stir in some sour cream, and season with salt and pepper.
Garnish with chopped fresh parsley and a sprinkle of extra paprika.
