There are a million different ways to prepare beef and all of them end up with the same thing: a juicy slab of meat. But not all of us know how to braise or pan-sear beef without ruining a few pieces first. Fortunately, tossing all your ingredients into the skillet is a super easy way to cook meat (and veggies) for a keto-friendly stir fry.

You can vary the types of meat, veggies, and spices used to create a million different stir-fry combinations. Experiment with spinach, eggs, asparagus, jalapenos, almonds, bacon, artichokes, hot sauce, whatever. This recipes keeps it simple. It also includes some avocado chunks to increase the fat and make it more ketogenic friendly. The 23 net carbohydrates may be higher than you're used to. But as long as you don't cheat before or after your meal, these carbs won't kick you out of ketosis. Even if you happen to eat both servings yourself (like I did). Remember, the veggies add valuable nutrients like B-Vitamins, Fiber, Potassium, and Vitamin C.

    1. Looks tasty enough that I'm actually salivating, but it has far too many net carbs to really be considered keto (some people are only afforded 25g of net carbs per day). To keep with the Asian theme, you might consider including some bok choy and broccoli - both of which are very low carb - and reducing the amount of onion, bellpepper, and shitake mushroom.

      1. Definitely agree that there are other low-carb vegetables that could be substituted in this recipe. Especially love the broccoli suggestion. But I should clarify that this recipe makes two very large servings. So that would be closer to 11ish carbs per meal. But that still may be pushing it for some keto-ers. Thanks for the feedback!
