Ingredient Notes

  • cremini mushrooms: These mushrooms, also known as “Baby Bella”, are darker, firmer, and more flavorful than other varieties. They hold up quite well in liquid, which is why I prefer them for this recipe.
  • ground beef: I love getting grass-fed, organic ground beef from Butcher Box!
  • beef broth: My favorite brand is Kettle & Fire. It’s shelf-stable, packed with collagen, and made with 100% grass-fed beef! You can find it at Thrive Market, Target, or your local grocery store.
  • Jovial Foods Gluten Free Fusilli: This can be found on Thrive Market and in the gluten free section of most grocery stores!
  • dairy free sour cream: Click the link for my super easy 6 ingredient dairy free sour cream!

How to Make One Pot Dairy Free Beef Stroganoff

  1. Melt the ghee in a large deep skillet or pot. Add in the onions, garlic, and mushrooms. Sauté for 3-5 minutes until they begin to soften.
  2. Add in the ground beef and cook for 3-5 minutes, breaking it apart with a spoon as it browns. Sprinkle in the thyme and salt and stir.
  3. Pour in the sherry cooking wine and stir, scraping up any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. 
  4. Add in the coconut aminos, dijon mustard, beef broth, and pasta. Stir well and cover. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cook for 9-10 minutes. Test your pasta to make sure it’s not getting overcooked!
  5. Stir in the dairy free sour cream. The sauce will thicken upon standing. Garnish with fresh parsley, serve, and enjoy!
