Easy Ground Beef Stroganoff (Gluten-Free, Low-Fructose)

Easy Beef Stroganoff (Gluten-Free, Low-Fructose)

I love me some stroganoff. It's so creamy and filling. It's very satisfying in the winter, but I even find myself making it in the summertime. Mostly because it's so easy. If you love stroganoff too, check out my recipe for Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff from Scratch. This beef recipe is adapted from one found on I make it much healthier, draining the fat from the meat and skipping some of the butter. I highly suggest using grass-fed beef. I serve this recipe over gluten-free pasta or rice.

  1. hi there, this recipe looks so delicious! thank you for making it both gluten and sugar free. I've included it in my Weekly Meal Plan for 2:

  2. I just want to thank you for your blog. I was diagnosed with fructose malabsorption five years ago. My three-year-old, while not officially diagnosed, also has issues with fructose. I've been able to tolerate wheat fairly well, so gluten-free hasn't been an issue before, but a good friend of mine recently found out that gluten was what was causing her pain and suffering. I am loving that your recipes are both gluten free AND low fructose, so I can cook for both of us. More than just the recipes, I really enjoy reading about your food journey. I feel less alone in my own journey. By the way, this recipe was delicious, and very simple.

    1. Thanks for the comment! I'm glad you are enjoying my blog and recipes. It's great to hear I can help someone with similar issues!

  3. Delicious and easy, didn't have fresh mushrooms so used jarred and used my GF fettuccine noodles. Will make again!

  4. I'm making this for dinner. I'm allergic to dairy so I'll leave that out of my portion. thanks. Kitty
