Beef Stroganoff Paleo Style
Beef Stroganoff used to be one of our favorite dishes before Paleo. I actually haven’t found or created the one to most closely resemble our old favorite yet, but this one is at least close (and very delicious.)
Myheartbeets.com is one filled with treasures. This was the recipe I began with. The flavor was excellent, but for some reason my sauce was very thin. This may have been the way it was supposed to be, but we wanted a bit more consistency. Let me first give you a link to her delicious recipe: http://myheartbeets.com/paleo-beef-stroganoff/
For my first try on this, I didn’t have the bone broth (I have a goal to learn to make this this year). I used the not so prestigious beef broth. I used Zuchinni Zoodles versus the Whole Food Paleo Noodles she mentioned. And most likely I will stick with Zoodles as we do like them very much.
Remembering how I made the Beef Enchillada sauce using beef broth, coconut cream and arrowroot powder, I tried it again reserving some of the called for coconut cream and adding arrowroot to it. We thought it was perfect.
3 T Ghee melted Benefits of Ghee
1 # Grassfed Stew Meat (Ashley says Grassfed Lean Hamburger Meat is also delicious to use)
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Fresh Black Pepper
1 tsp. Onion Powder
1 tsp. Garlic Powder
1/2 tsp. Cayenne
Brown the Stew Meat in the melted Ghee for about 2 minutes. Add the above spices and cook 5 minutes.
1 Onion Finely chopped
4 Cloves Garlic minced
1 T. Worcestershire Sauce
2 t. Dijon Mustard
1 1/2 Cup Bone Broth
Add all and bring to a boil. Turn to low and cook covered 45 minutes.
6oz Package of Portabello Mushrooms (Even more is good)
1/2 C. Coconut Cream (refrigerated first to obtain the cream at the top.) I used a little more Coconut Cream with 4 tsp. Arrowroot Flour shaken in a jar until the Arrowroot was dissolved.
Stir this mixture into the other, cover for 10 minutes as cooks. (I actually stirred until the sauce was thickened to the consistency we like.)
Serve over Paleo Pasta (Found at Whole Food Store) or Zoodles (made from Zuchinni Squash with an inexpensive Zoodle Maker, which can be found for about $10.)
