So, heat up your wok (or skillet) and grab a few ingredients so you can make this delicious Keto Chili Basil Beef Noodle Stir-Fry recipe.
Recipe Suggestions and Cooking Tips
Don’t get me wrong, this recipe is absolutely delicious as is. However, I’ve included a few modifications to suit your taste buds as well as what is already in your refrigerator or pantry.
First, the chili pepper is absolutely optional! If you are not a fan of spicy foods, you can omit it and enjoy a non-spicy version.
And you can always use red pepper flakes instead of a chili pepper. But with anything spicy, use the amount to suit your taste.
Next, you can use any cut of beef steak that you prefer. Sirloin, tenderloin and tri-tip are typically the best cuts to use in stir-fries. However, you can use whatever you have on hand.
Ground beef is a great option, too! Plus, it cuts down on time since no slicing is involved.
Pork and chicken can be used instead of beef as well. Personally, I think pork is a bit closer to the taste and texture of beef in this recipe.
But chicken is delicious as well. Just be sure to add a bit more cooking time since chicken takes longer to cook than beef.
And you can use any color bell pepper you prefer. Red adds a great color to the dish but yellow and orange are fine to use as well.
Green peppers can be used. However, they have a stronger taste than other peppers. So, if you don’t want your dish to have a lot of bell pepper flavor, you can use half of a green bell pepper.
Oyster sauce is completely optional for the dish. If you have any on hand, I would suggest using it.
However, there is no need to go out and buy a bottle just for this recipe. And yes, oyster sauce does contain sugar, but I don’t think it’s a big deal since so little is used.
Of course, just leave it out if you are completely sugar-free.
And while I love shirataki noodles in this dish to help give it more of an Asian flavor, you can use any Keto pasta that you prefer.
