  • 2 oz. 50 g butter
  • 1 lb 450 g chorizo or other good quality sausage
  • 1 oz. 30 g sun-dried tomatoes in oil, preferably in olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons 2 tablespoons dried thyme
  • 1¼ cups 300 ml heavy whipping cream or sour cream
  • salt and pepper
Fried cauliflower and parsley rice
  • 1½ lbs 700 g cauliflower
  • 4 oz. 110 g butter
  • 4 tablespoons 60 ml chopped fresh parsley

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Fry or grill the sausage until fully cooked through, put aside to cool a little.
  2. Cut the bell pepper and onion in thin slices.
  3. Fry the pepper and onion in butter in the same pan used for the sausage on medium high heat.
  4. Cut the sausage in bite-sized pieces and add them back in the pan with the vegetables. Stir and fry for another minute.
  5. Add all remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil, lower the heat to medium low and let simmer and thicken for about 10-15 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Serve with fried cauliflower and parsley rice.

Cauliflower and parsley rice

  1. Shred the cauliflower using the coarse side of a grater. You can also use a food processor, just stop in time so you don't end up making it too finely shredded.
  2. Heat up a large frying pan and add butter. Fry the riced cauliflower on high heat for a few minutes while stirring it. Salt and pepper to taste. Add chopped parsley and mix before serving.

Tip!

You can use strips or cubes of beef or chicken instead of sausage. This may require additional seasonings like garlic and paprika, as the spices in the sausage adds to the flavor.

    What? This is not stroganoff!!!! Since when does Russian stroganoff contain chorizo sausage, bell pepper, tomato paste, dried tomatoes and thyme?!?!?!

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Beef_Stroganoff

    Stroganoff: beef, bouillon, sour cream, onion, and fat for frying (beef tallow or butter).

    You took a perfectly good classic LCHF dish, and added carby foods to it. Bizarre! Why would you do that?!?!

    Hi Apicus!

    Thank you for your comment.
    By no means do we claim this to be an authentic stroganoff. This is, as it says in the description, a take on the classic version. It does have more carbs to it and is therefore best suited for people eating low carb in a moderate or liberal way.

    I agree, Apicius.
    The true stroganoff is already LCHF and keto as well. It's an awesome dish I prepare all the time in the slow cooker. This sausage dish is too carby for me, but could be better if, instead of trying to emulate stroganoff, you simply fried up the sausage and then added a cream and pesto sauce to them (like the sauce used on your hamburger + feta cheese dish).

    Here's the recipe:
    Sausages, 1 cup heavy cream, 2 tablespoons tomato pesto.
    Fry sausages thoroughly. Remove from the fry pan. Turn heat low and add the cream and pesto. Cook until it thickens. Pour over sausages. Serve with fried cabbage or butter-roasted cauliflower. Simple and delicious and totally LCHF.

    This was amazing! Used andouille sausage. So, so good.

    Ok, so its not authentic, they never claimed it was.

    I made this tonight using small french toulouse sausages (100% meat) and it was delicious! I did not add the sun dried tomatoes, so added small spoon extra of tomato paste.

    Very rich and satisfying. Will definatly make again.
