Do you want to create delicious, wholesome foods for your family, but never seem to have the time to go beyond opening a package and sticking it in the microwave?

Heather at has the desire to help time crunched foodies create the comfort foods they love, in the precious little time they have.

Today, she shares a post on how to make easy beef stroganoff!

This one pot meal is a family favorite, even in the summer. It’s warm and comforting in the cooler weather months, but since it comes together so quickly, I love to make this all year long.

Traditional beef stroganoff is served with mushrooms added, but the boy doesn’t like them. For his sake, I usually leave them out. If you want to add them, add 8 ounces of sliced mushrooms with the onions and garlic.

IS BEEF STROGANOFF EXPENSIVE TO MAKE?

No. This creamy beef stroganoff uses 2 pounds of cubed sirloin steak, that you can often find on sale. However, if you need it to be less expensive, you can substitute ground beef, or even stew meat for the sirloin steak. 

IS THIS BEEF STROGANOFF KETO FRIENDLY?

To make this beef and noodles keto friendly, you will need to make a few substitutions. 

  • Substitute the flour for arrowroot powder (not necessary if using cream)
  • Swap out the egg noodles for shiritaki noodles
  • Cut down the amount of onions to 1/2 an oion
  • Use heavy cream instead of milk for the roux, and you can forgo the arrowroot powder

CAN YOU MAKE THIS BEEF STROGANOFF RECIPE GLUTEN FREE? WHAT ABOUT DAIRY FREE?

Sure! Simply swap out the flour for arrowroot powder, and use gluten free noodles instead of plain egg noodles to make this creamy beef and noodles gluten free. To make this dairy free, use vegan butter, and beef broth instead of the milk.
