Beef Stroganoff – Konjac Noodle Goodness!

20200423181307_IMG_1589One of the food items we’ve had to learn to replace are any kind of noodle.  You name it, we love it…macaroni, tagliatelle, rigatoni, farfalle, penne, spaghetti, etc.  Luckily, the konjac noodle options aren’t that bad.  The one we enjoy the flavor of the most is from Skinny Pasta.  You can find their website here.  We don’t find the smells or too weird of a texture with this company.  It’s definitely worth a try if you’re trying to cut carbs.

20200423173757_IMG_1585When we prepare it, we pan fry them.  Some people boil them, but I like to just put them in a dry pot or pan and let them sit over medium-low heat on the stove until I’m ready to add them to the dish.  For the stroganoff, I added them to the dish before adding in the sour cream.  It allowed them to soak up the flavor of the beef.  You could absolutely leave them in there, but I chose to remove them to plate them in the bowls first.

This recipe was great, and the flavors were perfect.  I think that various stroganoff recipes can have too much sour cream in them, but this one ended up with a great balance.  You can find the original recipe by clicking here.  It’s a great site and has lots of awesome recipes.

Enjoy!
