If you are looking for a delicious and very LCHF meal – look no further! I made this last week and it has to be one of my favourites! Creamy beef Stroganoff!
Served with shredded fried cabbage that works as a form of noodle. It really is delicious and filling meal. You can find the recipe for the Stroganoff over at The Travelling Chopsticks, HERE
In that recipe I used 2 tablespoon of flour to thicken the sauce, however depending on how strict LCHFer you are, this can be easily omitted. The sauce may not be as ‘thick’ but it will not impact the flavour at all.
To make the cabbage noodles it is very easy, you will need the following:
- 1/2 head of cabbage, cut into thin strips
- 2 tblsp butter (at least)
- 1 tbslp oil
- Salt and Pepper
Heat the olive oil and 1 tblsp of butter in a large frying pan. Once the oil is hot and the butter is melted add the cabbage to the pan. You will have a lot of cabbage, but you have to bear in mind this will shrink considerably.
Mix the cabbage around in the oil and butter and let it fry on its own, stirring it occasionally so it does not burn at the bottom.
Fry the cabbage until it has reduced considerably and is soft. Keep adding butter as needed. Although you mustn’t let it burn, do not be afraid of letting the cabbage brown, as this really releases a lot of wonderful flavour in the cabbage.
Once the cabbage is done, season with salt and pepper.
If you are using the cabbage as ‘noodle’ to accompany something like a stroganoff keep the flavours simple. However, you can always spice up you cabbage noodles with herbs, garlic or bacon if you want to use it more as a side dish.
Hope you enjoy it 🙂
