It was my dad's 65th birthday last week and I decided to share a recipe that he loves. As the name suggests, it's adapted from a traditional Russian stew that is commonly served with pasta that can easily be replaced with zucchini noodles - you can add some if you like. It's meant to be eaten as a main dish. If you plan to have it as a starter, use half a serving.

Ingredients (makes 6 servings)

  • 2 large beef rump (sirloin) steaks (800 g/ 1.76 lb)
  • 600 g brown or white mushrooms (1.3 lb)
  • 1/4 cup ghee or lard (55 g/ 1.9 oz)
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 medium white or brown onion, chopped (110 g/ 3.9 oz)
  • 5 cups bone broth or chicken stock or vegetable stock (1.2 l/ quart)
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard you can make your own
  • juice from 1 lemon (~ 4 tbsp)
  • 1 1/2 cup sour cream or heavy whipping cream (345 g/ 12.2 oz) - you can use paleo-friendly coconut cream
  • 1/4 cup freshly chopped parsley
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper

Optionally, you can use a thickener: 1 tbsp ground chia seeds (+ 0.1 g net carbs per serving) or arrowroot powder (+ 1.2 g net carbs per serving) mixed in 1/4 cup water or use cream & egg yolk mixture like I did in my Pork & Kohlrabi Stew.

Instructions

  1. Place the steaks in the freezer in a single layer for 30-45 minutes. This will make it easy to slice the steaks into thin strips. Meanwhile, clean and slice the mushrooms. When the steaks are ready, use a sharp knife and slice them as thin as you can. Season with some salt and pepper. Keto Beef Stroganoff Soup
  2. Grease a large heavy bottom pan with half of the ghee. Once hot, add the beef slices in a single layer - do not overcrowd the pan. Quickly fry over a medium-high heat until browned from all sides. Remove the slices from the pan and place in a bowl. Set aside for later. Repeat for the remaining slices. Keto Beef Stroganoff Soup
  3. Grease the pan with the remaining ghee. Place the chopped onion and minced garlic in the pan and cook until lightly browned and fragrant, for about 2-3 minutes. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook for 3-4 more minutes while stirring occasionally. Keto Beef Stroganoff Soup
  4. Add Dijon mustard, paprika, and pour in the bone broth. Add lemon juice and bring to a boil. Cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the browned beef slices and sour cream. Take off the heat. Keto Beef Stroganoff Soup
  5. If using a thickener, add to the pot and stir well. Finally, add freshly chopped parsley. Eat hot with a slice of toasted Keto Bread or let it cool down and store in the fridge for up to 5 days. Keto Beef Stroganoff Soup Enjoy! Keto Beef Stroganoff Soup

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.

Made this and used 1 1/2 cups of cashew cream instead of sour cream/ heavy cream. Thickened up sooo well.
Tastes delicious!

Thank you Jennifer, that sounds delicious!

Incredibly delicious! We loved this recipe so much.
I didn't want to change the recipe other than adding about two cups of cabbage.
I added it close to the end so it was slightly al dente.
It made a great substitution for the traditional pasta in stroganoff.
I was lazy though and just threw it all in the crock pot for a couple of hours. ;)

Thank you for your kind words! That's actually a great substitution for pasta 😊

Can I freeze this once it’s cooked?

Reply

I haven't tried freezing it and I think the cream may separate but you could give it a go. In any case it would still taste ok but the texture may not remain smooth.

Steak here in Canada is so expensive, can I use stewing beef instead?

Reply

You could use less expansive steaks like flank or skirt and cut them really thinly against the grain. I hope this helps!

I would like to try adding the zucchini noodles.  How would you suggest going about that?

Reply

Hi Mari, you can add them for the last 2-5 minutes of the cooking process, depending on how you prefer them - "al dente" or soft.

What is the calorie intake per serving size? what is the serving size?

Reply

Hi Alex, "calories" are listed as kcal. I didn't measure/weigh the serving size but I'd say it's 2 cups per serving (it also depends on the level of evaporation). I hope this helps!

Thanks for this recipe.  It's wonderful!

I just made this soup with some left over BBQ steak. It is so good! I also subbed dill pickle juice in place of the lemon juice. Great recipe! Thank you.

Thank you Lindsay!

I love stroganoff, I haven't had any in years, it looks delish even without the noodles, Thanks!!

Reply

Thank you! I hope you like it! 😊

When you say 1.76 pounds of steak, is that per steak or total pounds of steak?

Reply

Hi Shay, that is the total amount of meat used so that will be 2-4 steaks depending on the size.

Reply

To make this as a stew & not a soup, how much do I reduce the stock by - would 1-2 cups work ok?

Reply

Yes, I'd say that 3 cups should be enough for a stew (instead of 5 cups)
