Low-Carb Beef Stroganoff

There aren't many comfort dish recipes more classic or traditional than beef stroganoff.

Made with a creamy, savory sauce, noodles, and ground beef, it's a dish that warms you up and keeps you full for hours after you eat it.

Problem is, traditional beef stroganoff recipes are definitely not suited for a low-carb diet. 

One serving of pasta or noodles alone is enough to put you over your daily carb count on a diet like keto. And the majority of the ingredients aren't paleo, either.

So if you wanted to replicate this classic dish, you'd need to make some adjustments.

That's why we love it when our customers find creative ways to use FBOMB products. Thanks to Nancy for this delicious low-carb beef stroganoff recipe!

Ingredients Used:

What is Stroganoff?

Stroganoff is a typical eastern European dish that has been served in Russia since the mid-19th century [*]. Named for Count Stroganoff, it was one of many dishes created to keep bellies warm and full during the cold Russian winter.

(As it turns out, the Stroganoff family dates pretty far back. They're pretty famous in Russia for fighting back against the reign of Ivan the Terrible.)

It's traditionally made with sautéed pieces of beef, sour cream and spices, then served over rice or pasta. A great meal for a cold fall or winter day, or just a delicious meal that combines savory and simple ingredients!

How this Recipe Compares to Traditional Versions

In short, this low-carb beef stroganoff recipe is very different. The taste, texture, and appearance might be the same, but the ingredients vary greatly to help make this fit on a low-carb diet.

Two of the major changes are:

  • Using low-carb rotini instead of regular pasta: Thanks to this delicious and handy invention by the Great Low Carb Bread Company, you're able to have your beef stroganoff over some noodles. Amazingly, they only contain 7g of net carbs per serving!
  • The addition of FBOMB Bone Broth: Many savory sauces call for chicken or beef stock, but we do you one better with the addition of FBOMB Bone Broth. The flavor is amazing, it's loaded with protein, and you get a healthy dose of collagen in your meal!

These two adjustments make this recipe not only healthier, but more flavorful and unique.
