Best Beef Stroganoff - KETO friendly
This was SO good and works for Keto and Low Carb diets, gluten-free (add gluten-free noodles) or vegetarian (use Seitan, Tofu, Gardein "beef" strips instead of the steak though that will add to the sodium content. ) I made it for my husband last night and he gave it an enthusiastic two thumbs up!
