Low-carb ground beef recipes can help make keto dinners easy and budget-friendly. A staple ingredient in many households, ground beef dinners are common on many weekly menu plans, but many are high in carbs. However, with a few simple swaps, it’s usually quite simple to take these familiar dishes and turn them into a meal that is keto-friendly, but that the entire family will still enjoy.
Can you eat ground beef on keto?
If you are on a low-carb, high-fat diet, the first thing that might pop into your head is to grill a steak for dinner. But ground beef, that common kitchen staple, is a great option for keto meals too.
You might immediately think of recipes like meatloaf and meatballs, which often have carb-filled ingredients like bread crumbs, or tacos served on corn or flour tortillas. But it’s not hard to swap out a few things here and there and still make many of the dishes you love.
For those who want to stay in ketosis, choosing ground beef that is 85% lean or less actually makes these budget-friendly options, as well. These will be the most inexpensive packages of ground beef in the grocery store, and they often go on sale. Or buy in bulk at a warehouse store and wrap in 1 to 1 1/2 pound portions.
