A simple low carb and dairy free option for classic beef stroganoff!


  • 1 block Yam Cake (or yam noodles)
  • 1 lb Ground Beef
  • 1/4 whole Onion
  • 1 pkg (227 g) Sliced Mushrooms
  • 1 Can Coconut Cream
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 3 Cubes Beef Bouillon
  • To Taste Garlic Powder
  • To Taste Pepper
  • To Taste Salt


  1. Cut yam cake into thin slices and then into desired noodle size. Alternatively Yam noodles can be used, but these are long like spaghetti instead of thin and flat noodles.
  2. Rinse, and then boil yam noodles (improves flavor).
  3. Brown hamburger and drain grease as desired.
  4. Add yam noodles, mushrooms, and onions to hamburger and fry until onions and mushrooms are cooked as desired.
  5. Add coconut cream.
  6. Add beef bouillon and seasonings, stir until evenly combined.
  7. Bring to a simmer, and cook down to desired consistency. Stirring often.

Additional Notes

  1. Add 1 Tbsp of lemon juice and a dash of vinegar to the coconut cream a few minutes prior to adding to beef to imitate the flavor of sour cream.
  2. Other Noodles can be used in place of yam Noodles, but this will significantly impact the nutritional facts.
  3. If you’ve never used yam noodles before, be prepared for an unpleasant odor. Rinsing, boiling, and pan frying not only makes them taste better (flavorless really), but improves their texture.
  4. A pinch of xanthan gum can help to thicken the coconut cream.
