Is Beef Stroganoff Keto?
I will admit before I started cooking with fresh ingredients in 2004, I used to be a Hamburger Helper Mom and my favorite was the stroganoff. I honestly loved it and could have eaten it every week. Even after I started cooking fresh I would grab a box and add stuff to it to make me feel like I was making it healthier.
Then I went low carb and well, ya know that had to stop!
Traditional stroganoff, with at least 22 grams of carbs in a one-cup serving, is in no way keto-friendly.
This Keto version contains less than 6 net carbs per serving!
And I even add port wine because I am fancy like that and want you to feel like you are “gormeting” it up too! But, if you choose to not use the wine you can always use more beef bone broth in its place and that will take off about 3 net carbs per serving.
Another thing that will add carbs to your meal is of course whatever you choose to serve the Beef Stroganoff over.
Traditionally it would be served over noodles or mashed potatoes. So that just tacks more carbs on with 1 cup of mashed potatoes containing 35 grams of carbs and egg noodles bringing 40 grams of carbs to the party!
The carb count for 1 cup of each of those would be:
- Cauliflower rice – 3 net carbs
- Mashed cauliflower – 5.5 net carbs
- Zucchini noodles – 2.4 net carbs
- Spaghetti squash – 7.8 net carbs
- Hearts of palm noodles – 1.6 net carbs
So, a serving of this Instant Pot Ground Beef Stroganoff served over hearts of palm noodles would only be 7.5 net carbs!

Detailed measurements and instructions can be found on the printable recipe card at the bottom of the page.
HOW TO MAKE INSTANT POT GROUND BEEF STROGANOFF
Turn the Instant Pot on sautee, high. Add the oil and brown the ground beef. Drain off any fat and liquid. While still on sautee, add the onions and garlic. Cook an addition 2-3 minutes or until onions are translucent. Add the beef bone broth, thyme, mushrooms, salt, and pepper.
Turn the Instant Pot onto Pressure, High, and set it for 6 minutes. Lock it up. When the time is up, let it release naturally for 3 minutes, then manual release and open the pot.
Turn the Instant Pot back to saute and add the cubed cream cheese whisking well until it melts and is incorporated into the sauce.
Add the sour cream and mix well.
Season with salt and pepper, and whisk in the xanthan gum if desired.
Serve over mashed cauliflower, cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles, spaghetti squash, or Palmini noodles, and enjoy!
FAQS ABOUT INSTANT POT GROUND BEEF STROGANOFF
Do I have to use the wine in this recipe?
No, you can omit the wine and just add an additional 1/2 cup of beef bone broth. The wine does add a nice depth of flavor though.
Could I make this with ground chicken or pork instead of ground beef?
I have not made it that way myself but I would think the results would be tasty too.
How should I store the leftover Instant Pot Ground Beef Stroganoff?
Store any leftover stroganoff in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days, or in the freezer for up to 3 months.
Last thoughts about Instant Pot Ground Beef Stroganoff
This recipe actually became a meal prep recipe when I was making some meals for my son and DIL for the month after their baby was born. I wanted easy things my son could pop into the slow cooker, or Instant Pot, set it, and WALA dinner.
Although the sour cream/cream cheese and xanthan gum were an extra step, the other ingredients were tossed into a large zip-top freezer baggie and it made it super easy for him to get a delicious meal on the table for the family.
I did brown the ground beef before I put it in the bag but I know many people cook ground beef from frozen in the Instant Pot.
If you try it that way please let me know how it comes out!
