Being on a keto-friendly diet doesn’t mean missing out on all of your favorite dishes! This Asian-inspired keto dish is the ultimate comfort food and, best of all, is low-carb, high in protein, and keeps you satiated.
The ground beef with the Korean-inspired sauce tastes fantastic. The soy sauce provides a salty umami flavor, while the sesame oil and ginger give an excellent depth to the dish. Brown Swerve is a sugar replacement that imitates brown sugar in recipes. As traditional Korean beef calls for brown sugar, Swerve is a great alternative. However, if you prefer, xylitol or stevia are possible options.
Ground beef is a popular keto-friendly meat choice as it is effortless to cook and always tastes great in whatever dish you include it in. Beef is also high in heme iron, meaning it’ll be easier absorbed in your body, and it has plenty of essential vitamins like B6 and B12 to keep you focused and energized.
Cauliflower rice works well in this recipe as it’s light and has a subtle taste. In addition, cauliflower can take on any flavor it is paired with, so eating the cauli rice with sticky, salty beef means you don’t lose any of the flavors in the sauce!
This dish is hearty, comforting, and perfect for a cold night in. This recipe calls for a dash of red pepper flakes which add a nice spicy kick, but you can always adjust the amount depending on your spice preferences.
