Easy hamburger stroganoff is hot, creamy, comfort food that won’t throw you off your low-carb eating plan.
I think Texas has gone crazy. It was 8- degrees on Friday and now, three days later, we had a high of 31 and a low in the teens. It was so cold that the kids didn’t even have school.
I know that probably sounds crazy to those of you from places where it gets cold often but we don’t get that kind of cold much — especially not in March. Just remember, we are not phased by those 110F days that cause rolling blackouts and deaths in the northern areas of the country.
I don’ like cold. I can handle those scorching hot Texas afternoons with no problem but cold? It hurts me all the way to my bone marrow — I swear. I love the way snow looks as long as I am inside by a fire in a quilt. Add a cup of coffee and the world is a lovely place… as long as I am not out in it.
When the weather is cold I want carbs. Creamy, hot, comfort food with plenty of flavor is exactly what I am looking for. That’s all fine and good but when you have no thyroid gland and just looking at a carb causes weight gain, it is really frustrating. I am always looking for recipes that will handle that craving without making me fat.
This easy hamburger stroganoff really works for me.
It is velvety and creamy with everything I love about beef stroganoff without that one thing I don’t like — carbs. I like to add the cauliflower into the sauce but your can serve it over the cauliflower, make cauliflower mash and serve it over that, or even make cauliflower rice.
You can make this up and freeze it in batches if you want. It may make the sauce separate but once you heat it up and stir it you won’t be able to tell.
Easy hamburger stroganoff with cauliflower is low carb comfort food that you can make in a snap. It makes it easy to stick to your low carb eating plan!
