Carnivore Stroganoff Recipe

Ground Beef Stroganoff

I grew up with ground beef stroganoff. It wasn’t until recently I learned many recipes use beef fillet or steak instead.

Since ground beef is so easy to work with, widely available, and cheap, why change something that isn’t broken?

This carnivore dinner recipe is quick and easy to prep without any vegetables while still retaining the classic creamy beefy flavors of traditional stroganoff. (1)

With 24 grams of protein, 20 grams of fat, and 0 grams of carbohydrate per 4 ounces (113 grams), ground beef is a macro-friendly choice for many meals. (2)

If you’re a bacon lover, consider adding 4 rashers of chopped bacon to the meat while cooking. Th UK Carnivore Club’s Zero Carb Stroganoff recipe adds bacon and liver – it’s also amazing!

  • Lightly brown the meat in a skillet over medium-high heat. Break apart clumps with a spatula as needed.
    1 pound ground beef
  • Pour in bone broth and cream cheese. Season with salt.
    1 cup Beef Bone Broth, 1 teaspoon salt, 4 ounces cream cheese
  • Bring to a simmer and continue to cook for 5-10 minutes until liquid reduces by half.
  • Serve hot.


Cream cheese may also be replaced with 1 cup of heavy cream if you prefer.
I only have access to lean meat and therefore, usually, add 1/2 tbsp cooking fat before browning the beef. If your ground beef is sufficiently fatty, you don’t need additional cooking fat.

  1. It is improved with sour cream, which most stroganoff recipes call for. I also added one clove of diced garlic, and 1/2 cup of diced onion, which adds about 5 carbs, and a lot of flavor.

  2. I made this carnivore recipe and it was DELICIOUS! I eat a lot of beef and can get tired of ground beef sometimes, but this dish was so tasty! I’ll be making it regularly. I did add a dollop of sour cream on the top. 🙂 Thank you!

    • Thanks, Laura. It’s always nice to hear our recipes are helping alleviate the monotony this diet can sometimes bring.

  3. 5 stars
    Oh my goodness, this is so good. I just made it and it delicious. I didn’t have beef broth so I used chicken and I used sour cream. It’s so simple yet so flavorful. I will definitely make this again. Thanks for sharing:)

    I love this. I make a chaffle (with egg whites and cheese) and then add the egg yolks (and stir) to the stroganoff mix after removing from the heat. I pour the stroganoff over my cut up chaffle. Yum!!

  5. I am wondering if I could use sour Cream in place of part or all of the cream cheese. I use the Daisy brand sour cream. Thank you.

    Thank you for providing a great resource to the carnivore community. I’m currently preparing this stroganoff for my afternoon meal and it smells heavenly. Gotta go now, I’m drooling on my keyboard!!
    Thanks again,

  7. why couldn’t one use sour cream instead of cream cheese as it is, in fact, much closer to traditional strogonoff.?

  8. 5 stars
    I swear this recipe originally was made with heavy cream… if I’m not crazy… could I have the ratio/amount needed or can you email me that version to keep please!!! Thanks!

    • Hi Neil! You’re right I originally made it with heavy cream but did some testing with the cream cheese which seems to give a thicker texture which people say they like. You can choose between 4 ounces of cream cheese or 1 cup of heavy cream. I’ll add a note in the recipe card in case others prefer this too. What makes you like the version with heavy cream more? I think they both taste great 😀

        I made this last night and it is wonderful! I did make it with the heavy cream and it was a bit runny. I wonder if this could be made with mascarpone cheese in place of the cream cheese to make it a true zero carb meal since cream cheese does have carbs and added sugar?

      • Hi Rachel, what a creative idea to use mascarpone cheese instead. I don’t see why that wouldn’t work out well. Do double check your cream cheese ingredient list because as far as I know plain cream cheese does not have added sugar and only 2 g carbs max per 1 ounce. Philadelphia cream cheese, for example, as less than 1 carb per 1 ounce serving.
