Keto Beef Stroganoff

Okay fine, it’s water buffalo!!

While growing up there wasn’t much of a ‘food scene’ and restaurants were either India, Chinese or Continental. Under the wide banner of continental cuisine was everything from burgers to pizzas to nachos. Looming under the ‘main course’ section was normally chicken a-la-kiev or paprika chicken and beef or chicken Stroganoff. I don’t recall how authentic it was but I do remember it being one of my favourite dishes to eat, a rich creamy gravy, tender beef (at least back in the day) and always served with rice.  This recipe is my recreation of those childhood memories and I’m making it Keto friendly and trying to also make it as close to what’s the real authentic Stroganoff.

Cookin Low and Slow

I wish I could experience the wonderful world of beef that exists outside India on a regular basis. But for now I’m stuck here. I’ve said this several times, you get ‘beef’, ‘mince’ and ‘tenderloin’. For this recipe I used beef which has to be cooked low and slow to become tender. Speaking of beef, we got some other killer beef recipes like my Beef Massaman curry, Blue cheese beef burger and my Keto steak with a herb butter.

Servings 5 servings


  • 800 grams Beef (Chuck or any slow cooking cut)
  • 200 grams White Mushrooms
  • 100 grams Chopped Onion
  • 75 grams Sour Cream (5 Tbsp)
  • 50 grams Heavy Cream (3.5 Tbsp)
  • 15 grams Butter Try this one
  • 15 ml olive oil I use this one
  • Chives/Spring Onion Green for Garnish
  • 1 Tsp Paprika
  • 1/2 Tsp Cayenne Pepper
  • 1 Tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 Tsp Salt Use 1/2 to season the beef in the start and slowly add the rest as the cook progresses


  • Slice the mushrooms and onions
  • Cut the beef into long strips and season with salt and pepper
  • Heat some olive oil in a dutch oven and brown the beef in batches. You want to do this on a high heat so that you beef doesn't stew.
  • Add a knob of butter and sautee the onions and mushrooms on a medium-high heat.
  • Season with salt, pepper, paprika, cayenne pepper
  • Add in the beef and 1/2 liter of water. Turn it up to a high heat and bring to a boil and once it is boiling turn the heat down to low.
  • Cover and cook till the beef is fork tender and the liquid has reduced by half or more
  • Add in the sour cream and heavy cream and mix in well
  • Turn off the heat and garnish with chives/spring onions green


Don't keep the heat on after adding the sour cream as if boiled it can split.

  4. Hi sahil i rrally love your recipes. So easy to make and yummy in taste.
    But i always face a problem with mushrooms .
    Whenever i eat them.after cooking the way you and everyone else on youtube suggests to shaloow fry or saute them .. They taste as if uncooked in taste … Rubbery and raw..
    I do much want to try this recipe too but mushrooms which never seem to cook properly are a hurdle in my way. Plzzzzz help

    1. hey Alma, maybe you just dislike mushrooms so I will say make this without mushrooms. Just use some other vegetable you like or leave them out.

  5. Hey Sahil .I loved this recipe. Your recipes makes our day. It’s tasty and and keto friendly. Enjoying my Beef Stroganoff with germinated breads… Is it possible that you can show us some recipe with Shirataki Rice/Noodles(Miracle Rice with 0 carbs)??

    Thanks and Keep It Up

  6. Hello Sahil

    I work in the music biz, mostly with metal bands. Toured the world. So I definitely enjoy the theme.

    I loved the recipe and will definitely make it again. Only wanted to mention two corrections:
    – in the video you say to cook for an hour, but the recipe says 20 minutes.
    – you don’t mention cook temperatures. I assumed medium-high for the beef, then mushrooms & onions and to bring to a boil. I then assumed to simmer after covering, but the water did not cook off. So it must have been to cook covered on medium-high?

    Thank you! Love the recipes & videos!

    1. Hey Cooch! That’s good to know! Which bands do you work with? Sounds like fun!
      Right so I fixed the cook time in the video. Basically cook till the beef is tender. I think I used tenderloin in mine since that’s all we get here and that takes 20 min. I will add in the cook temp and a few more details but once everything is in the pot you bring to a boil and then turn it down to low and let it cook. Sautee everything on a high heat.
