Drunken Five Spice Beef

Keto Recipes > Dinner

I really wasn’t sure what to call this dish once I made it. It’s not exactly a Mediterranean dish, after all. But, it has the flavors some of the Mediterranean dishes had when I was over there.

The five spice is more Asian, but it definitely has hints of sweet and savory (reminding me more of cinnamon in this dish). The cumin definitely gives it that eastern vibe and plays together very well with the beef – adding a distinct richness. The beer…well, I was going to add wine but while I was cooking I realized I was out. This just so happened to be the last Coors light I had (who knows how long it’s been sitting in the fridge), so I decided to just toss it in for liquid. It came out with a great mellow flavor as it cooked down.

If you find that tasting throughout, it tastes a bit salty – don’t worry. The ketchup at the end brings the sweetness and acid you need to play down the saltiness in the dish – it’s the final touch and it does its part!

You may have noticed lately I’ve been adding gram measurements to some of the vegetables. Well, I’ve always had a food scale, but I thought I’d start accurately measuring things instead of using cups to do so. If you don’t have a good scale – I highly recommend getting one. I use this food scale for all my weighing, it’s quite good (and stylish)!
