Keto Ground Beef Stroganoff

This keto ground beef stroganoff is a hearty meal of beef in a heavy cream sauce. Beef stroganoff is a Russian dish typically made of sliced beef paired with a sour cream sauce. This meat dish has become quite popular all around the world, with all kinds of variations from the original recipe. And this savory keto ground beef stroganoff is no different! First, it’s keto. And secondly, it’s make with a ground beef, not cubed or sliced beef.

This delicious keto ground beef stroganoff was inspired by a friend that I have been knowing since we were kids. We had not talked in a couple of years, so it was nice to discover that they are on the keto diet. So, I cannot take credit for this delicious idea. I am glad the recipe idea was shared with me with permission to use because it’s a unique combination of flavors that I do not often play around with. With that said, I did change the recipe a bit when I made it myself.  The original recipe called for beef cubes, but I used ground beef because it’s fast and easy to cook. In addition, I used half cream cheese and half sour cream for the base, whereas the original recipe called for cream cheese and heavy cream. I had a container of sour cream in the fridge and no heavy cream. Since an authentic beef stroganoff is made with a sour cream sauce, I did not hesitate to use sour cream instead.

Either way, the keto ground beef stroganoff turned out to be delicious.

Besides the beef and cream sauce, a nice combination of herbs and spices are used to flavor this dish. I sauteed portobello mushrooms, sliced yellow onions and minced garlic to get the flavors started. Then, while cooking the meating and merging the ingredients together, a worcestershire sauce is used to flavor and add the brownish color to the all white sauce. As you can now probably imagine, it is a very soothing and savory comfort food type of dish.
