Easy Beef Dinner for Weekly Meal Prep

Slow cooker recipes like this one will quickly become your favorite for meal prep because they are so easy! Nothing is better than adding everything to the crock pot, turning it on, and walking away until dinner time.

Once the meat cooks, serve it all around. Pair the saucy meat with the low-carb serving suggestions I share below. For non-keto dieters in the family, let them enjoy it with rice or noodles. I like to bulk prepping carbs for the family and keep them prepared in the fridge. Then, I can cook meat and vegetables and grab whatever else with ease.

Low-carb beef stroganoff is such a minimalist meal. Plus, it only has 3 g net carb per serving!

Ingredients

Chuck roast – A favorite for slow-cooking because it’s cheap and softens nicely after cooking long and slow. (1) I suggest grass-fed chuck roast from White Oak Pastures.

Mushrooms – Slice them up and let them simmer in the creamy sauce. After, they are so tender and delicious!

Onion and garlic – Need I say more? How can we not add these flavorful ingredients? They are a classic component of many savory dishes. 

Bone broth – I prefer a homemade beef bone broth and almost always have it in my freezer. However, Kettle and Fire makes an organic shelf-stable broth you can store in your pantry. You can read my Kettle and Fire Bone Broth Review and learn why they are my top choice.

Apple cider vinegar – Just a splash here for a little sweetness and tang!

Sour cream – This thickens the sauce and makes it super creamy!

Crockpot Stroganoff FAQ

Is beef stroganoff keto?

When served as meat with a creamy mushroom sauce, traditional beef stroganoff is, in fact, keto! However, the carb content skyrockets when you add noodles or serve it over rice.

What can I eat keto stroganoff with?

Stroganoff usually accompanies noodles or rice. However, these ingredients are not allowed on a keto diet. Instead, I recommend low-carb alternatives such as spiralized vegetable noodles, cauliflower or broccoli rice, spaghetti squash, or any variety of pasta from the Miracle Noodle brand.

Revisit my links posted above in the “directions” section for specific details and directions.

How to thicken beef stroganoff in a slow cooker?

You’ll notice Xanthan gum is an optional ingredient in this recipe. If you find your sauce is too thin, sprinkle 1 teaspoon of Xanthan gum evenly over the surface of the meat and liquid in the last 15-30 minutes of cooking time. Mix well to combine, then leave to sit and finish cooking.

    I was looking for a new recipe to try in my slow cooker, and I found this beef stroganoff recipe. I followed the directions, but I added mushrooms and onions for extra flavor. It turned out amazing! The meat was tender and flavorful, and the sauce was rich and creamy. I’ll definitely make this again.
