Allergy Free Beef Stroganoff
Dairy, egg, soy, wheat/gluten free

Beef stroganoff is usually off limits to those avoiding dairy, egg and wheat. That's because traditional recipes contain a creamy sauce that includes sour cream and it is typically served over egg noodles.

As this recipe from 8 Degrees of Ingredients by Melisa Priem demonstrates, it can easily be made allergy free using a few substitutions.

The sauce is made with beef broth thickened with cornstarch and Dijon mustard is added which gives it the tangy flavor that traditional recipes get from sour cream.  

If you’re avoiding corn, you could substitute tapioca starch for the cornstarch in this recipe.

As suggested in 8 Degrees of Ingredients, we serve this over quinoa and corn pasta.  The buttery flavor of the pasta complements this dish well.  Plain corn pasta, brown rice pasta or rice would be other options to serve this with.

 This is a great dinner to make on a night that you don’t have much time to cook. It’s quick and easy to make and doesn’t require a lot of pots and pans making clean up quick, too!
