Keto Beef Recipes
– Paleo Flourish
Ingredients: flank steak, coconut oil, olive oil, white wine vinegar, sea salt, cilantro, parsley, garlic, tomato paste, peppers, onion flakes (or onion powder), garlic powder, oregano, cumin powder.
Since this dish is cooked in a slow cooker, you can afford to use slightly cheaper cuts of meat and still have it turn out tender. This recipe is for a shredded beef dish which looks and smells delicious. If you use different peppers such as red and yellow, you can add a slight sweetness and fabulous color to this meal.
Beef is very satisfying meat and can be served throughout the year, especially in a stir-fry form like this. Try to use a good cut of meat, but if you are on a budget, cheaper cuts can also be used. Instead of chopping the zucchini into strips, you could also try serving this keto beef recipe over spiralized zucchini, which resembles noodles.
Stir-frying is a great way to make tasty meals in a flash! The ingredients in this keto beef recipe are great, but feel free to try adding other veggies. Red onion adds a hint of sweetness, just like carrot ribbons, so these are just a couple to try. Stir-frying also helps to maintain the goodness in the food as it is cooked quickly.
A word on tomatoes – they’re one of the best fruits you can eat on keto (yes, they’re a fruit!). According to Registered Dietitian Megan Ware RDN, LD, “A tomato is a nutrient-dense superfood that offers benefit to a range of bodily systems. Its nutritional content supports healthful skin, weight loss, and heart health.” This dish is a great way to get them in!
Sometimes you just want a simple but flavorful keto salad, and this one fits the bill nicely. You can make it from start to finish in under 30 minutes and it’s easy enough to make in a larger batch if you have a lot of people eating. The Asian flavors mix really well with the beef to create a delicious and unique ketogenic beef salad.
Broccoli beef can be ready to serve in just 20 minutes, so this is a quick and easy meal when you are short on time. With the garlic and ginger seasoning, this beef recipe is so yummy and has a real Chinese taste to it. Broccoli can be an earthy vegetable which goes so well with beef and helps to make the meal hearty and healthy!
– Keto Summit
Ingredients: shirataki noodles-fettuccine, beef steaks, salt, ground black pepper, coconut oil, onion, garlic cloves, white button mushrooms, gluten-free tamari sauce or coconut aminos, beef broth, Dijon mustard, coconut cream (from the top of a can of coconut milk), fresh parsley
Stroganoff is usually delicious – but full of cream! However, using coconut cream instead gives the desired smooth texture to the sauce, letting you enjoy a naughty dish in a healthier way. This is traditionally a warming and slightly spicy dish, and this keto stroganoff recipe won’t let you down. Resting the beef for a couple of minutes allows the meat to be tender and juicy. Serve with zucchini noodles or shirataki noodles for a complete ketogenic meal.
– Holistically Engineered
Ingredients: corned beef, onion, radishes, garlic, beef broth, salt, pepper.
Corned beef hash has long been a favorite in a lot of families, but of course, the traditional one uses the potato. This recipe uses radishes instead which might make you think would be too hot, but cooking the radishes gives them a much more mellow flavor. If you have any cabbage or spring greens, these can make a tasty addition to this dish.
This is a slow cooker Keto beef recipe that produces a comforting and satisfying meal. The bacon flavors go so well in this dish – just remember to check the seasoning as the bacon and beef bone broth often already provide sufficient saltiness!
– That Paleo Couple
Ingredients: beef chuck, white onion, curry powder, garlic, ginger, whole fat coconut milk, salt, chili sauce.
Like many curries, this one has a base made from onion, garlic and ginger, giving it a warming and fulfilling flavor. If you are using a cheaper cut of meat like chuck, which is great for curries, resting the meat for a few minutes before serving can improve taste and tenderness. This recipe is great on its own, or try serving it over keto cauliflower rice.
Meaty Paleo Chili
– Swiss Paleo
Ingredients: ground beef, stew meat (chunks of beef), onions, green pepperoncini, red and green bell pepper, garlic, tomatoes, chili powder, Thai chilies, dried chili flakes, bone broth (or water), salt.
Chili is such a versatile dish because it can be spiced to suit your own palate. This delicious ketogenic beef dish can also be topped with various things such as avocado, red onion rings or chopped green onion. And if you have any leftover, second-day chili always tastes even better since the spices have had more time to develop.
– South Beach Primal
Ingredients: beef tongue, onion, red bell pepper, yellow red pepper, jalapeño pepper, garlic, salt, pepper, Cajun choice spice, tomato sauce, chicken stock (or water), butter, green onions.
The tongue has been a misunderstood ingredient for a long time, but rest assured it is delicious, especially when it is cooked slowly. This Creole dish looks and tastes amazing, and is colorful and rich with heat from the spices. The tongue can quite often be bought quite cheaply and goes a long way, so is ideal for feeding a family. And if you are sensitive to butter, then try using ghee for this recipe instead.
The meat in this recipe is juicy and delicious and suits well to being served as a lunch or for a family meal. Roasting the cabbage helps to get rid of any of the bitterness and gives it a natural sweetness, making it appealing to everyone.

Ingredients: chuck beef, preferred stock, salt, pepper, oregano, cumin, ancho chile, paprika, cinnamon, garlic, tomato paste, skimmed stock/meat juices, onion, garlic, jalapeños, salsa, tomatoes or sauce.
Shredded beef looks so tasty that you can serve it cold in a salad, warm with a sauce like this recipe, or just in a bowl and eaten on its own! This is a great dish for people who like to experiment with spices and flavors – the more often you make it, the better your recipe will become. Cool it down for the family or spice it up for parties!
– Paleo in Practice
Ingredients: ground beef, jalapeño pepper, ground cumin, ground garlic, red pepper flakes, onion, salt, pepper.
These keto-friendly burgers are so easy to prepare and only take a few minutes to cook, so they are great after a busy day, or for friends and family parties in the garden. If you are not keen on pink in your beef, simply leave them to cook for another couple of minutes, and you can also adjust the spices to suit your taste.
Liver has quite a strong flavor, but it’s full of iron and other nutrients. The problem is that not everyone likes the taste. This keto burger recipe uses chicken livers which can be lighter in flavor and can add a richness to the taste of these delicious burgers. The seasoning and the ground beef help to cover up the liver taste so that you can get all the health benefits of liver even if you don’t like the taste.
This Keto recipe has its roots in Puerto Rico and, with only a few ingredients, is a cheap yet filling meal. Steak and onions is a true favorite with most meat lovers and with the seasoning, on this meat, the whole dish is bound to be delicious. For a slightly sweeter taste, try using red onions instead of white.
This dish would be perfect for a dinner party, where all your guests sit around the table and fill their own lettuce wraps from the beef dish at the center. The authentic Thai flavors of lime and fish sauce give a depth of taste and freshness that everyone will enjoy. Instead of the ground beef you could use chicken or pork and change the broth to chicken instead of beef – this will change up the recipe enough to enjoy on another night of the week!
– Popular Paleo
Ingredients: ground beef, Napa cabbage, water chestnuts, bamboo shoots, ginger root, garlic, coconut aminos, scallions, sesame seeds, black pepper, lard.
This is a stir fry recipe with Chinese tones thanks to the bamboo shoots and water chestnuts. The beef and cabbage cook at the same time so you will have no timing issues with this meal. Ginger root can be stored in the freezer so you don’t need to buy a large piece when all you need is a little bit. One suggestion is to serve this beef dish with cauliflower rice.
Steak and mushrooms is a classic combination! Simple ingredients, yet an absolute delight when put together. Don’t panic if you can’t find wild mushrooms; although they add a special flavor, this Keto beef recipe works very well with other types as well – why not try some unusual ones like shiitake or oyster mushrooms a try. And if you’re staying dairy-free, then try using ghee or more olive oil instead of the butter.

Ingredients: beef sirloin roast, onion, celery ribs, carrots, garlic cloves, water, dried onion flakes, dried oregano, coriander seeds, Himalayan salt, black peppercorns, chili pepper flakes.
If you are a fan of roast beef, then this keto beef recipe is just for you! To ensure you have enough leftovers for the next day, buy a bigger roast than you need. And slice the roast beef thinly when cold and store it in the fridge to keep. The spice mix used in this recipe is great since roast beef absorbs the flavors as it cooks, giving you an exceptional roast dinner, or spiced beef for another time!
A good rib eye steak can have your mouth watering before you eat it, and it’s such a satisfying dinner! When grilling steak, some chefs recommend you oil the meat, not the grill, and this helps the seasoning to stick to the steak. If you have any left over, simply slice thinly and serve the next day with a keto salad for lunch!
Keto corned beef hash is a lovely way to use up leftover corned beef and can be a hearty and cheering meal to fill the whole family. Using cauliflower means this dish is low carb and because the cauliflower is caramelized slightly, it brings a deeper level of flavor to the hash. If you are using leftover corned beef, you may find it is a bit dry so just add a little more oil.

Ingredients: beef heart, bacon, yellow onion, button mushrooms, garlic, Himalayan salt, black pepper, Ceylon cinnamon, nutmeg, spinach leaves.
You may be a little scared to try beef heart, but its texture and flavor are really fantastic! It has the delicate flavor of a good roast beef, but with the texture of a steak. Putting bacon with it is a great idea too – you know how well bacon and liver go together, so why not with heart? You might find you have a bit too much stuffing for this recipe, but that’s fine! Keep it to one side, then heat and serve once the heart is ready to carve.
