As the cold weather creeps in for most of us northern hemisphere dwellers, so does the temptation for hearty, creamy, warming goodness.
The crock-pot is a game changer for macro counters, particularly in the colder months. So many easy recipes with so much time saved.
That being said, there are only so many broth-based stews and soups one can eat before needing something different. Something rich and creamy. Low fat sauces and stew alternatives are available in jars but they are often full of thickeners and preservatives. Also, they usually pack extra carbs in lieu of the fat that has been removed.
Beef Stroganoff is a winter classic. Traditionally it packs butter, flour and sour cream into the mix to give that thick, rich taste and texture. However, this take on Beef Stroganoff is amazing and will have your family questioning if you’re cheating on your diet!
I could say that this recipe is perfect for those with macros lower in fat, but honestly, this recipe could replace the real deal. Like any good macro-friendly recipe, you can customize the ingredient ratios to suit you, too.
If you’ve got carbs to play with, serve over egg noodles, rice or pasta. Otherwise, it’s delicious on its own. If you’re feeling frisky, add a dollop of sour cream, but don’t forget to adjust the macros!
We love this recipe because its rich flavors and textures are completely natural. No packet flavors or sauce jars in sight!
