Beef Stroganoff Recipe with Sour Cream (Gluten-Free)

Keto Beef Stroganoff

This beef stroganoff recipe is one of my absolute favorite low-carb dishes. It’s creamy, delicious and very filling.

It’s also a perfect winter dish, especially in those cold days when you want to eat something warm and soupy.

There’s not a more comforting dish than this one to make in the winter months.

I promise you.

But What Exactly Is Beef Stroganoff?

Beef stroganoff is a Russian sautéed beef dish in savory sour cream sauce.

While there are many ways to make this dish, this easy recipe is made for a low-carb Keto diet. Perfect for your ketogenic meal plan.

But that’s not all you love about this recipe. It’s mess-free, easy, and convenient.

It’s a one-pot meal with a cooking time of 30 minutes, and its ingredient list is very minimal.

I also love that there are no unfamiliar ingredients you often see in keto recipes and foreign dishes.

Delicious comfort meal with least bit of hassle is very much my kind of recipe. And nothing fits the bill better than this beef stroganoff keto recipe.

Since the stroganoff sauce is very rich and thick, it goes really well with cauliflower mash or rice. Zucchini noodles would also make a good pair.

If you are ready, let’s get started.

Hi, I'm Tina, a mom, and wife who loves to write about nutrition and dieting. When I'm not writing, I also enjoy baking healthy pastries with my 7-year-old daughter.

  1. I made this recipe yesterday, and let me just tell you, this is one of the most delicious things i’ve ever eaten in my life. Consistency is just right, I seasoned it with some Herbamare (herb salt) instead of just normal salt and used a little more garlic, and this was just blow-your-socks-off amazing! Not only boyfriend-approved, but even in-laws approved! Really fantastic recipe, and easy to follow too! Thanks!

    1. Hi Antonia,

      Thank you for your sweet comment!
      It’s so amazing to hear you and your family loved the beef stroganoff dish!
      The recipe is so easy and can totally accommodate little twists here and there to make them just the way you like it.
      I hope you try other recipes too!


  2. We just had your beef stroganoff for dinner. It was the easiest quickest stroganoff i have ever made. Forget it being a winter meal, i am in Australia. It is 44C ( 111 F) today but this was a quick meal to saute up and serve with a garden salad. Absolutely delicious. Thankyou

    1. Hi Paulene,

      Thank you for reading my blog and leaving such a nice comment. I’m really happy to hear that you enjoy the beef stroganoff recipe! It’s one of my favorites to make, and you are right. It’s a great delicious dish for any day of the year.

      I’ll be sharing more recipes like this so keep checking back.


  3. This is SO good! I goofed and let it simmer too kong and it got super thick and creamy. I am so glad I did that. There is less of it now but the taste is absolutely phenomenal.

    1. Hi Deborah,

      Thank you for reading my blog and leaving such a nice comment. I’m really happy to hear you enjoyed the beef stroganoff recipe. It is one of my favorite dishes to make too. More recipes like this is coming, so stay tuned.

      Thank you again!


  4. I made this tonight for dinner and it was absolutely amazing!! It tasted like something you would get a Biaggi‘s restaurant ❤️ I will definitely be making it again!!

  5. This was exceptional. I used London Broil because it was on sale and simmered it a little longer to make it tender. I cooked up some cabbage “noodles” and it paired beautifully. My husband, who’s a trucker, will definitely love this. He’s getting bored with just grilled meats. This is one I’ll freeze and send with him on the road. Well done!

  6. This looks great but could you tell me an avocado oil substitute? I’m more low carb than keto.

  7. Do you serve this over noodles? Want to yry this wo my hubs knowing so that he can loose some weight too!!

  8. Made this for dinner tonight with cauliflower rice and fresh green beans. Definitely a keeper. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

  9. I made this tonight using a Certified Angus Beef coulotte. It tasted fantastic, but mine suits bit thicken, even though I cooked or longer. I did double the recipe though, so maybe that was the problem. I served egg noodle and zoodles on the side and both worked well with our.

    1. Hi Shawna,

      I’m so sorry to hear that.
      I’m not sure where it went wrong, but when all things fail, one way to naturally reduce is to simmer without a lid.
      Nevertheless, the combination of sour cream and heavy cream should’ve made it creamy. I’m sorry it didn’t work.


  10. This was amazing! I tweaked a tiny bit and idea sherry to deglaze the Pan after cooking the mushrooms and onions. Served it over cauliflower. Delish!!!!!

  11. I read some comments on here about it being watery and not thickening. So I decided to try it for myself. It is very true, there is no way this is thickening after only 15 minutes of simmering. I definitely followed to a T. Made sure all juices were drained from browning the beef as well. I am not an amateur at cooking either. It has currently been simmering for close to 30 min and is just now starting to thicken with a creamy consistency. My advice to those of you making this going forward, I would give it a 40 min simmer. You will like it much better than the water downed version. However, thus far the flavor is delicious 🙂 Thank you.

  12. Made this for a crowd…tripled the recipe…taste was delicious, served with cauliflower mash.
    I had to add some Xanthan Gum to thicken it a bit. Very good

    1. Dee,

      I’m so happy to hear the beef stroganoff recipe worked!
      I have to say, pairing it with cauliflower mash is my favorite way to enjoy this recipe too.

      Thanks for the tip on the Xanthan Gum too. I’ll have to try that myself.


  13. Husband started on keto diet so we tried this new recipe, it is a winner! Kids ages 7, 5, & 2 all cleared their plates which is near miracle in our home. It was a little thin so we used bowels and to get the last drop they had bottoms up on the bowels! Kids used noodles and hubby cauliflower rice, it is a keeper and family friendly!

  14. What does the sour cream do for the recipe? I want to make it but my husband and sour cream do not agree with each other. If I left it out would it make a big difference?

  15. I made this with vegetarian Quorn steak strips, added more buttered sauteed mushrooms, it was fabulous and so easy! Thank you!

  16. I’m on the Keto diet also, this was amazing! I did let it simmer awhile only because I was waiting for my husband to get off work. I served it with steamed Cauliflower. It was perfect!
    I wish I knew what a serving size was. I will definitely be making this again.

  17. This is so amazing! I will make this again and again! This is what I love about keto – that I can eat things like this. It’s so rich and decadent. Thank you!
