Beef Stroganoff with Zucchini Noodles

(Teresa Coffman) #1

I made this recipe up last night and was amazed at how great it turned out.

I diced a onion and cooked it with a pound of grass fed ground beef (85%/15%fat). Next time I make this I’ll actually use sliced steak but it was just a quick week night dinner and I was making it up as I went so I used ground beef.

After a bit I added a big pile of sliced mushrooms, a splash of vermouth, a splash of red wine vinegar, thyme, marjoram, salt, pepper and ground bay leaf and cooked that all down for a few minutes. I added finely diced Serrano chilies because I like everything spicy - you may want to skip this.

While this was cooking I peeled 4 fairly large zucchini’s and tossed the peelings. Using my potato peeler I made wide noodles working my way around the zucchini until I started to see the seeds in the core and I tossed that.

Lastly I added about a cup of sour cream and when that was melted and I tasted and adjusted the seasonings I added the zucchini ribbons and tossing it all together gently cooked it just until the ribbons were halfway cooked (about 3 - 5 minutes). I swear it looked almost exactly like the picture below which is off the internet and has real pasta, and it was delicious!

I know! I’m such a fraud. My bad. My hubby and I gobbled it down (we had been fasting all day) and it wasn’t until after it was gone I realized I should have taken a picture. It looked amazingly like regular pappardelle pasta.

Took me a bit of restraint at meal time to photo my food and create my own keto food porn for the “What did you keto today thread, part deux”. You should check that out if you haven’t yet.
