Beef Stroganoff
 
My husband just loves Stroganoff! So I cook it occasionally for him. This is how I usually put it together…..pretty simple, actually. We low-carbers can’t have it on noodles, so I have mine on steamed cauliflower. But for my husband I cook some Dreamfields lasagna noodles cut into strips after they are done. This recipe is OK for Induction only if served over veggies or alone. Here's a pic of it over noodles:

INGREDIENTS:

1 lb. sirloin steak, trimmed & cut in thin strips
4 T. butter, unsalted
4 oz. onion, chopped
8 oz. mushrooms, sliced
3/4 c. beef bouillon
c. red wine (omit if still in Atkins Induction)
c. sour cream
xanthan gum to thicken

DIRECTIONS: In a large non-stick skillet or wok, brown the onion. Add meat strips and continue searing until done. Add mushrooms at this point. Saute for a few more minutes until they, too, are done. Lower heat to lowest setting. Add bouillon & wine. Simmer 5-10 minutes to blend flavors. Cover with lid and simmer (or bake at 350 ) for 1 hour. Check and stir occasionally during cooking. Slightly thicken with several light dustings of xanthan gum, whisking continuously between additions. Right before serving, with fire off, remove lid and gently stir in sour cream. Do not bring to a boil after adding sour cream or it will curdle and be visually off-putting. Serve over buttered cooked cabbage strips, cooked zucchini noodles or cauli-rice.

Boy, that looks good, Buttoni! I have some mushrooms that I need to use and I know there's hamburger in the freezer so I think I'll give your recipe a try tomorrow or Wednesday. Thanks for posting and the pic!:up:

And thanks to you Dixie for posing the question!:)

Thanks for the recipe and pic. That looks really delish! Want some comfort food because it's cold! Since I don't have any "gum" will add some cream cheese to thicken. That should work - don't you think?

Yes, that should thicken it. Or if you have it, a light dusting of glucomannan powder dusted into the liquid would also work. I have my thickeners in salt shakers with very fine holes. That works really well for me.

Thanks Buttoni! Have ordered the gluc. powder from Netrition - want to make your dumplings recipe. Love country pork ribs and sauerkraut mixed together and the dumplings would be great - used to use Bisquick for the dumplings.
