Keto Beef Stroganoff using Instant Pot

Updated: Feb 24, 2021

This Keto Beef Stroganoff is one of my son's favourite keto dinner. I have tested a few versions and this is the most keto friendly variation without adding worcestershire sauce. Instead, red wine vinegar is used for a lower count on carbohydrates and no sugar.

Another tricky part of making beef stroganoff is the gravy. The original recipe called for starch as thickener which is totally non-keto compliant. Hence, to keto-fy it, I use xanthan gum as substitute.

Beef stroganoff is best served hot. You may blanch some broccoli or cauliflower as side. Another good option to add-on is keto dinner rolls. Break the roll into bite size and dip it into the sauce. Oooh my, it's soooo delicious!! That reminds me to make some keto dinner rolls the next time.

As this recipe is not the kind that you can dump everything into the instant pot, I have made a step-by-step video so you can easily replicate this recipe at home.
