Keto ground beef stroganoff is one of my favorite keto ground beef recipes. Fresh mushrooms and ground beef are simmered in a rich, savory sour cream sauce for comfort food your whole family will love!


Units Scale
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons salted butter
  • 2 cups sliced baby Bella mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup chopped yellow onion
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard powder
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 quart beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon beef bouillon base
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, chopped into cubes
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped


  1. In a large skillet, heat olive oil and brown ground beef over medium high heat.
  2. Push beef to side of pan and melt butter. Add onions, mushrooms, garlic, and Worcestershire sauce. Sauté until onions are translucent.
  3. Season with salt, pepper, mustard powder, paprika, and onion powder. Stir to combine.
  4. Add beef broth and beef bouillon base. Simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. 
  5. Turn off heat and stir in cream cheese until cheese completely melts and mixes into the sauce.
  6. Fold in sour cream and xanthan gum to thicken the sauce.
  7. Garnish with fresh parsley.


  • Serve over low-carb vegetables or noodles.
  • Brown the ground beef for maximum flavor.
  • Add the xanthan gum at the very end and don't over do it. It thickens sauces without heat.
  • Add sour cream at the end, after turning off the heat, to keep the sauce from breaking.
