This Low Syn Beef Stroganoff is also very, very tasty. If I could have this every night for a year I most certainly would!

Mushroom Stroganoff (recipe coming very soon!) was a permanent feature on our restaurants menu, and we’d make it with mustard, double cream, and stock.

This Low Syn Beef Stroganoff isn’t made the same way, but tastes pretty damn good!

Some people like to put Paprika or even tomatoes in their Stroganoff, we’re not one of those people! That’s not to say you can’t put it in, it’s just not something we’d do.

The same goes for what you serve this Low Syn Beef Stroganoff over. We prefer boiled rice (and perhaps some chips too!), but you could use pasta too, or chips – lots of chips. Oh yes!

The Steak

For the steak, I’d urge you to get hold of our Protein Food Shop hampers. They’re packed full of the BEST quality meat we’ve ever come across from an online butcher. The hamper is incredible value for money, working out FAR cheaper than the supermarket.

The steak is lovely, and lean, and all of their beef is sourced from British farms, giving the reassurance of meeting all the animal welfare trading standards regulations.

We also have a few other exclusive hamper deals available, so it’s well worth checking them out.

Whenever we need to replace oil in cooking we use Frylight. Perfect for everyday frying and cooking, it delivers exactly one calorie per spray, which makes it Syn free!

The Avocado flavour is ideal for this Low Syn Beef Stroganoff recipe, but you could use the Sunflower or Rapeseed as well.

Frylight Find Out More

The last thing that isn’t essential, but will make your life SO much easier is a decent knife.

Being chefs we’re a bit obsessed with our knives, but if you can, you should have one good knife.

Doing Slimming World, you’re probably going to chop and prepare a LOT of vegetables.

A good knife will make your life so much easier!

If you’ve already got a decent knife then one of these knife sharpeners may be useful.

You can pick one up from Amazon.

How many Syns are in this Low Syn Beef Stroganoff?

We’ve used 2 Healthy Extra A choices of Philadelphia Lightest in this Low Syn Beef Stroganoff, which means you only have to count the Syns for the brandy and the Dijon mustard.

This means that each portion works out at half a Syn IF you use half of your Healthy Extra A choice.

Of course if you choose not to use your Healthy Extra A choice you will have to Syn the Philadelphia Lightest at 11 Syns, which will bring the Syn value up to 3.5 per portion.

You must make sure all visible fat is removed from the beef in order to keep the meat free.

  1. Can’t wait to try this 😁
    Just a quick note step7 in both the pictorial step by step guide and the written method says to add the mustard along with Worcestershire sauce – the video adds the Brandy at this point.

    Love your recipes and your site. Many many thanks.

    1. Hi Mandy
      The video is a visual representation, but it’s the written details in the recipe and step-by-step which are important! Stick with the written method and you’ll be fine. 🙂

    1. Hi Kerrie
      This recipe won’t really work in the slow cooker. There are a number of steps that need to be done on the hob in the preparation process, and one they’re done the dish is just about ready!
