Lean Beef Stroganoff

Beef is an excellent complete protein source that supplies amino acids to build and repair – a must for anyone who weight trains. This low-fat meal will help sustain lean muscle and keep you in great condition. Traditionally a heavy cream-based dish, this version will leave you feeling satisfied without all that unnecessary dairy.





  • 1½ cups mixed mushrooms
  • 1 eye fillet (approx 350g)
  • ½ cup organic beef stock
  • 1 cup baby spinach
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley
  • ½ teaspoon organic coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika (optional)
  • 1 brown onion, sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, diced


  1. Slice brown onion, and mushrooms, then dice the garlic clove.
  2. In a hot pan, sauté onion and garlic in coconut oil until soft.
  3. Add mushrooms for 5 minutes until brown and tender.
  4. Set mix aside in a bowl.
  5. Season eye fillet on both sides with paprika and slice into thin strips.
  6. Sauté beef in the same pan until browned (no additional oil needed).
  7. Pour in stock and return onion mix to the pan.
  8. Simmer for 5 minutes over a low heat.
  9. Add spinach to pan until just wilted, sprinkle with chopped parsley and serve.

Make sure you buy organic grass-fed beef from your local butchers if possible. It contains more nutrients than supermarket meat and has more flavour.
