For an easy keto meal, try ground beef stroganoff. This hamburger meat recipe comes together in one pan for a quick and delicious dinner. It packs all the flavor of the traditional dish without the extra carbs!
I love finding new recipes for one-pan dinners. When you don’t have a lot of time, they’re great for getting easy, delicious meals on the table.
Skillet ground beef stroganoff is a perfect example!
This dish is made with budget friendly hamburger meat and a super creamy sauce packed with flavor. It tastes like something that takes all day to cook.
But it can actually be ready in 20 minutes or less! And everything comes together in just one skillet. This makes both cooking and clean-up so easy.
The traditional version dredges beef in flour before frying, then serves it in a creamy sauce over egg noodles.
To make a keto stroganoff, I simply eliminated the flour and served it over low-carb noodles instead!
This dish is so easy to make because everything comes together in one pan. This is also great for infusing the whole meal with flavor!
Just follow these simple steps:
- Cook the hamburger meat. Melt 1 tablespoon of butter in a pan, then add the minced garlic and sauté until golden. Add the ground beef to the pan and season with salt and pepper. Cook the beef until browned, then remove from the pan and set aside.
- Prepare the creamy sauce. Melt another tablespoon of butter in the pan. Add mushrooms and wine (or water), then cook until liquid is reduced by about half and the mushrooms are softened. Remove the pan from heat and mix in the sour cream and paprika.
- Combine sauce and beef. Return pan to low heat, then stir in lemon juice and cooked ground beef. Adjust seasonings to taste if needed then remove from heat.
Your hamburger stroganoff is ready to enjoy! I like to sprinkle mine with chopped parsley right before serving.
The traditional version of this Russian dish is served over egg noodles. Thankfully, there are plenty of low carb alternatives.
One of my favorite options is to serve the stroganoff over spaghetti squash. I like to use Instant Pot spaghetti squash as it's the easiest cooking method I've found.
For a different vegetable noodle, you could also try spiralized zucchini noodles.
Another option is to use your favorite brand of low carb noodles. There are more and more options popping up all the time! Simply cook them according to the package directions.
Finally, you could whip up a batch of my keto egg noodles! They’re made from egg yolks, cheese, and spices for a super low carb option.
You really can’t go wrong. In my opinion, noodles are just a vehicle for eating sauce. The real star of this dinner is the ground beef stroganoff!
This recipe is for four servings. For me, it’s the perfect amount to feed my family for dinner.
If you do end up with leftovers, they can be stored covered in the refrigerator for 3-4 days. If possible, I recommend storing the stroganoff separately from any leftover noodles.
For longer storage, you could also freeze the hamburger stroganoff in an airtight container. It should stay fresh for several months.
