  • 2 Tbsp avocado oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion sliced
  • 3/4 to 1 lb beef sirloin steak thinly sliced
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 8 ounces baby bella mushrooms sliced
  • 1/3 cup beef broth
  • 1 (15-ounce) can coconut milk cream only
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp whole grain mustard
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley
  1. Slice the steak thinly and sprinkle with sea salt and paprika.

  2. Heat the avocado oil over medium heat in a cast iron or stainless steel skillet. Add the onion and saute, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent and beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.  Transfer the onion to a bowl and set aside. Place the skillet back on the burner. 

  3. Place the slices of beef on the hot skillet in a single layer and sear until golden-brown, about 1 to 2 minutes. Use tongs to flip the slices and sear another 30 seconds. Transfer seared meat to a bowl and set aside (note: You’ll likely need to sear the meat in two batches, depending on the size of your skillet).

  4. Wipe out skillet with a paper towel, add another 1 to 2 tablespoons of avocado oil, and place back on the burner. Add the sliced mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden-brown, about 3 to 5 minutes.

  5. Add the beef broth to de-glaze the skillet and bring to a full boil. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, until liquid has reduced slightly.

  6. Add the remaining ingredients to the skillet - onion, beef, coconut cream, lemon juice, and mustard. Stir well to combine and bring to a full but gentle boil. Cook until sauce has thickened to desired texture, about 1 minute. Taste the stroganoff for flavor and add sea salt and/or more mustard or lemon juice to taste.

  7. Serve beef stroganoff with steamed white rice, gluten-free pasta, zucchini noodles, or side dish of choice with chopped parsley.
