KETO BEEF STROGANOFF
On the Mother’s side, I come from an Eastern Europe family. When I was a little girl, she would take me to the Russian Tea Room in Chicago. There, we would dine on foods that she grew up on and talk about her childhood. Creamy Beef Stroganoff was my favorite. There’s something about the rich flavors that just spell out comfort and luxury and the same time.
On cold winter nights, I still love to indulge in Beef Stroganoff. To make it keto, I omit the flour and noodles. I use cream cheese and portabella mushrooms to amp up the fat and add flavor. Actually, I’ve found that I prefer the dish made using my gluten free and low carb recipe. The noodles didn’t add any flavor—they just extended it. Anytime I can increase my vegetable intake, I consider it a win.
If it doesn’t taste good, it’s wrong. My Beef Stroganoff is gluten-free and delicious.
While Beef Stroganoff might seem expensive to make for a weeknight, it doesn’t have to be. By breaking down a whole beef tenderloin, you come out with the tail and scraps. These pieces can be used in a variety of recipes with a minimum of cost. That’s KetoLuxe.
