🔪 How To Make
This Quick Low Carb Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff is super easy to make.
I think you will find the creamy gravy is addicting for sure. There is no denying that this crockpot beef stroganoff with sour cream and cream cheese is scrumptious. It's my favorite part!
Here are the step-by-step instructions for making slow cooker beef stroganoff:
One. Prep and Assemble
Spray your crockpot with nonstick spray.
Prepare all the ingredients.
Two. Add Ingredients To Crock Pot
In a slow cooker add the beef stew meat, cream of mushroom soup, onion soup mix, and fresh mushrooms.
Stir until combined.
Three. Slow Cook
Cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
Four. Add Remaining Ingredients
About 30 minutes before serving add cream cheese that has been brought to room temperature and cut into cubes. Allow it to melt, stirring occasionally.
Tip: let cream cheese and sour cream come to room temperature before adding to slow cooker.
Once the cream cheese is melted add sour cream, then salt and pepper to taste. Because of the dried onion soup mix, you will more than likely not need to add additional salt.
Tip: if stroganoff is too runny, keep the lid off after adding cheese and sour cream to allow moisture to evaporate. You can also whisk in 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum to the sauce and allow it to thicken as well.
Serve and Enjoy!
Serve over riced cauliflower if you're on a low carb or keto diet, otherwise, it's delicious over egg noodles or rice.
Sprinkle with fresh parsley or thyme. That's it! Super simple.
💭 Top Tips
- Let cream cheese and sour cream come to room temperature before adding to the slow cooker. Cut cream cheese into cubes for faster melting
- You can substitute different kinds of cream soups to change the taste. The BEST tasting and lowest in carbs is to make your own condensed cream of mushroom soup. It's not terribly difficult, you can make a bunch at a time and save some for future in the freezer! Recipe: Homemade Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup (Low Carb and Keto)
- If stroganoff is too runny, keep the lid off after adding cheese and sour cream to allow moisture to evaporate. You can also dissolve 1/2 tsp of xanthan gum in 1 tsp olive oil as a low carb thickener. Add mixture to the crockpot juices and mix. Allow to sit until thickened.
Is there a low carb onion soup mix?
A package of onion soup mix only has 4 g of carbs with less than 1 g of net carbs. A serving size in one package is 8. That is only 0.5g of carbs per serving.
This keto beef stroganoff recipe serves 10, so of the total carbs in this recipe coming from the onion soup mix are only 0.4g. I consider that a low carb onion soup mix!
How can I tell when my stroganoff is done cooking?
Your stroganoff is done when the meat is tender and breaks apart easily with a fork.
Best meat for making stew and beef stroganoff?
Beef stew meat or a beef chuck roast is my favorite cuts of beef for slow cooker beef stroganoff. Bottom round, eye round, rump roast, and top round are also good choices.
How can I make this a low-fat recipe?
You can lower the fat in this recipe by substituting fat-free or low-fat cream cheese, using a low-fat cream soup option, and using a low-fat sour cream.
Keep in mind that using lower fat ingredients may cause your keto beef stroganoff to be runnier.
