Photo of Dairy Free Beef Stroganoff | Traditionally, beef stroganoff is a creamy-sauced comfort food made with European smetana, or soured cream. Braising beef chunks low and slow in the oven results in beautifully tender beef -- IF you have the time. If you can't have dairy and don't have that kind of time, I've got good news for you!

Dairy Free Beef Stroganoff for the Instant Pot Recipe

My challenge this month was to create a dairy free beef stroganoff utilizing Wildly Organic’s organic coconut milk powder. To be honest, I wasn’t sure how it would work but I ended up devouring a good helping of the first batch I made. It’s really delicious! I didn’t think my husband would like it as it does have a faint coconut taste but he thought it was great!

The trick? Dairy free sour cream made with coconut milk powder!

You can find vegan sour cream in stores but many are made with soy, which you may also want to avoid. This vegan “sour cream” is super easy and surprisingly similar, aside from a bit of coconut flavor. It definitely does the trick of lending that traditional sour creaminess to this beef stroganoff.

Short on time? Use an Instant Pot!

Using your Instant Pot means fork-tender beef in 20 minutes of pressure cooking, too. That means getting this classic comfort food on your table in no time. If your pressure cooker has a “warm” function, which keeps food at a safe temperature for several hours, you can also prepare this ahead of time. Just a bit of attention after it’s cooked results in delicious, creamy dairy free beef stroganoff!

This dish is even better after it’s sat for a while, anyway. All those flavors get to mingling and the result is an amazingly flavorful comfort food perfect for cold weather days.

Serve this delicious, creamy, dairy free beef stroganoff over your favorite noodles, rice, or potatoes. In addition, using “zoodles” (zucchini noodles), cauliflower rice, or mashed cauliflower means a supremely satisfying low-carb stroganoff that is also gluten free.

You can also be like me and just stand there and eat it out of the Instant Pot. Seriously, it’s that good!

    Hi Joanna! While I haven’t tried this what I would if I were in your shoes is sub whatever kind of Non dairy milk you can have then either cook it down until it’s as thick as you like or use a thickening agent. Hope that helps!
