Expert tips for making Low Carb Beef Stroganoff
  1. Use a large heavy iron skillet if possible to help with browning the mushrooms and ground beef.  Browning helps add flavor to the dish.
  2. Spread the ingredients out in the skillet for better browning results.  If your skillet is small, simply cook the ground beef in batches.
  3. Take the skillet off the stove before adding the sour cream.  Prevent curdling by "tempering" the sour cream by adding a small amount of the hot liquid from the dish to the sour cream and stir.  Remove the dish from the stove then stir in the sour cream.
  4. Use more beef broth if you prefer.
