Oh yes…yes yes yes. I LOVE Beef Stroganoff! I haven’t figured out what to eat it over, but by itself, it sure is goooooood. My husband and son ate the leftovers this morning (I tried not to show my contempt when I saw that they were eating the rest of it because it’s MINE). IF you want a thicker sauce, use 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream and 1/4 cup sour cream. If you like a semi-thick sauce, use 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream and 1/2 cup sour cream. This is a great trick for thickening sauces because once you’re simmering the heavy whipping cream, it will get to a point where it just gets thicker and thicker. No flour or other thickening agents necessary! I am just providing the sauce recipe because I haven’t found a low carb meatball recipe that’s just right. It would be amazing with strips of beef or chicken though. It really was soooooo good!
I tried this over cauliflower rice, and it was “good”, but I actually liked it better just eating it plain.
- 1 Tbsp Kerrygold butter
- 2 cups sliced mushrooms (more if you really love them)
- 1 clove chopped garlic
- 1 1/4 cup chopped onion
- 1 1/2 cups beef broth
- 1/2 cup heavy whipping cream (1/4 cup if you don’t want it quite as thick)
- 1/4 cup sour cream (1/2 cup if you don’t want it quite as thick)
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1/2 tsp black pepper
Melt butter over medium-high heat, and cook the mushrooms. About 8-10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove to a bowl. Add garlic and onion and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add beef broth, heavy whipping cream, and sour cream, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to a low boil, stirring often. Add mushrooms back in and cook for 20 more minutes or until desired thickness is reached (stirring often).

umm so…how do you make the meatballs??
As I mentioned in the beginning of the recipe, I haven’t found a meatball recipe just yet that works for me, so I only included the recipe for the perfect sauce.
Thank you, I will certainly try your recipe. I’m Serbian-American and our traditional cuisine includes a keto meatball. They are called cevapcici, and if you search that, you will find recipes. They are shaped into little football shapes, and some people call them sausages, but it’s a mix of ground meats and no starches. I do either a pound each beef and pork, or beef and lamb, with a tsp each paprika, marjoram, garlic, salt to taste, and I broil them. That’s how I plan to serve this sauce.
Wonderful! Thank you!
Delicious! I made the meatballs you suggested. Thank you!
For my Low Carb Meatballs- I Use ground beef and ground pork, 2-3 Eggs, Parmesean cheese, onion power, garlic powder, Worcestershire sauce, S&P. (I just eyeball everything. Sometimes I add cream or Olive oil if the meat seems dry) Mix and Use a scoop to make meatballs same size and bake at 375 till done. Or you can fry them. Or cook them in your sauce. Use Ground Chicken or Turkey.. Its very versatile.
Quick and yummy
Can you use Greek yogurt in place of the cream?
Its worth a try!
Thank you for giving me permission to your blog. I’ve been using this recipe for about a year & my family loves it! I mix the sauce with cooked ground beef (or turkey) & we throw that over a small serving of carba-nada noodles. Delicious!
