This beef stew recipe (of Russian origin) is now so popular that many different variations have been invented. Major chefs (including Betty Crocker and Jamie Oliver) have all put their stamp on this traditional dish.
For those of you unfamiliar with this dish, it originally consisted of sauteed strips (or cubes) of beef topped with a mustard sauce and a small amount of sour cream.
Nowadays, beef strogranoff (or stroganov) often also contains onions and mushrooms in its sauce and is served over pasta or rice.
While this dish is not typically considered Paleo (because of the sour cream, flour that is used to dust the beef pieces, and the pasta/rice it’s served with), it is fairly easy to Paleo-ify.
So, below we’ve found 13 delicious Paleo beef stroganoff recipes for you to enjoy.

Fajitas are delicious, and if you eat them without the tortilla wraps, then they’re Paleo and Ketogenic.

For a quick and satisfying meal, give this simple Paleo and Ketogenic-friendly recipe a try.
I highly suggest cooking this dish with ghee as it adds that buttery flavor that’s delicious. And to give the sauce more flavor, you can also add extra chopped onions to it if you wish.
This is a really easy meal, but it’s more exciting than a simple steak and sweet potato dinner. Plus, it’s a great way to eat some different vegetables like asparagus and mushrooms that you might not get a chance to cook regularly. The ginger and parsley in this dish really help to add flavor and the small amount of cherry tomatoes and diced onions add a touch of sweetness to the dish without adding too many carbohydrates for those on a ketogenic diet.
Tender and delicious beef stews don’t get much easier than this! And in the pressure cooker, you’ll be able to fix this dish up really quickly.

I used zucchini and broccoli for this recipe to keep the carb count low, but you could use other vegetables instead if you prefer.

I actually wasn’t sure if I should call these mini spinach meatloaves or spinach egg muffins as they’re partially both. There’s both beef and pork (as well as veggies) in them but also eggs to hold everything together well.
Whatever you choose to call these, they make a really nutritious and filling snack if you’re hungry. They can also make a great breakfast, packed lunch, or dinner! They’re easy to make (you do need a muffin tray though) and easy to eat. Plus, they’re low in carbs and suitable for both a Paleo and Ketogenic diet.
You can make these mini spinach meatloaves in advance and keep them in the fridge for a few days to eat so you don’t have to be cooking every day.
I love bone broth, and I often make it in my slow cooker – I usually go for a really really simple bone broth recipe (like this one) and then add in spices when I drink it or add in vegetables and herbs when I make soups with it.
But you can also make flavored bone broth directly by adding in vegetables to the slow cooker so that all those delicious flavors cook into the bone broth. One of my favorite additions to bone broth is ginger and carrots. They add a delicious and warming flavor to the broth (the flavor is very delicate and not overwhelming).
This yummy Paleo and Ketogenic-friendly spaghetti squash bolognese recipe is easy to cook and makes a great dinner for the whole family. It’s gluten-free and uses spaghetti squash instead of regular wheat spaghetti for the “pasta.” (For other Paleo pasta options, check out this post, 9 Types of Paleo Pasta.)
You can also change the meat in this recipe for ground turkey or chicken if you prefer (although those meats are typically lower in fat which might not be desirable if you’re on a high fat ketogenic diet).
Make sure to add in the freshly minced garlic and diced basil leaves as they really give the dish a ton of flavor. And adding in those ingredients toward the end of the recipe makes those flavors stay in the dish better.
The instructions below tell you how to cook your spaghetti squash in the microwave (full instructions with step-by-step photos here). But if you’d prefer to cook the spaghetti squash in the oven, then follow this recipe here for Coconut Oil Baked Spaghetti Squash.

It’s super fast because the beef and the zucchini are chopped into thin strips so that they cook quickly, and it’s delicious because the garlic, cilantro, and gluten-free tamari soy sauce (use coconut aminos instead of tamari sauce if you’re on AIP) add tons of flavor to this dish .

A good steak salad can be delicious! This super quick and easy steak salad recipe was inspired by a dish I found at a local cafe. I loved the crunchy vegetables in the salad as well as the flavorful steak meat that had been marinated in soy sauce.
As many of you know, I love fast and easy recipes, and grilling or pan-frying steak is super fast so this steak salad recipe takes hardly any time to put together. I went for some nice and crunchy vegetables like peppers and radishes, but you can use whatever veggies you have at home.

Just one word of caution before you get started. The amount of carbohydrates each person can eat on a ketogenic diet and still stay in nutritional ketosis will vary. So, while some people may be able to eat an apple and still stay in ketosis, other people won’t. So, please experiment and see what your tolerance levels are. Many of the recipes contain ingredients like onions, tomatoes, carrots that are fairly low in carbs, but if you eat too much of them, they could still kick some people out of ketosis. If you need to stay lower in carbs, then pick recipes that don’t include those ingredients or else decease the amount you add into the recipe.
This breakfast recipe is a fantastic way to use any leftover meats from the night before. It’s also a great opportunity to add in your favorite herbs. I used leftover beef when I made this, but it would work with leftover turkey, chicken, or ham. So, remember this recipe for the morning after Christmas dinner!
