Yields4 ServingsPrep Time5 minsCook Time15 minsTotal Time20 mins

One of the most famous dishes in the world ... Beef Stroganoff ... made simple and Paleo but just as delicious as the original. AND I've included several tweaks FROM the original once served to Russian czars to make it even more yummy.

 1 tbsp Dijon mustard, or to taste
 1 ½ tsp sugar (I use Lakanto)
 1 tsp salt (I use fresh-ground kosher or colima)
 1 tbsp ghee
 8 oz cremini mushhrooms
 1 lb lean ground beef
  tsp ground pepper
 ¼ tsp garlic powder
 2 tbsp cassava flour
 1 cup beef broth plus 1/4 to 1/2 cups more to taste
 ¼ cup coconut creme from one can of regular coconut milk
 1 medium onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings (or use thinly sliced fennel)

Place can of coconut milk in the fridge the night before. If you forget to do this, you can place the can in the freezer just before you start prepping the recipe (or use canned coconut cream).


Clean the mushrooms, then thinly slice them. Thinly slice the onions (or fennel).


Add the ground beef to a large saute pan along with a few grindings of salt, garlic powder, and pepper. Saute over medium heat, breaking up clumps, until cooked through and no longer pink. Add cassava flour and stir until beef is coated. Place browned meat in bowl and set aside.


Add ghee to same pan. Add onions and saute 5 to 7 minutes until soft. Add mushrooms and saute 3 to 5 minutes more until browned.


Add the beef broth, mustard, and the coconut cream to the pan. Stir to incorporate, then add back the beef. Simmer until thickened. If the mixture is too thick, add more beef broth to desired consistency. Serve over rice, cauliflower rice, or cooked spiralized vegetables.
