Keto Korean ground beef
My version of keto Korean ground beef is similar to the traditional Korean beef (Bulgogi) but quicker since we are not marinating or slicing beef and its sugar free. This version is also gluten free and low carb. Each serving has 3 g net carbs and 11 g total carbs!

It also makes amazing leftovers. I like to serve it on shirataki noodles for dinner and then for lunch the next day, I reheat the beef and wrap it in leaves of romaine lettuce. A lettuce wrap also makes a fantastic appetizer at your next get together with friends and family. You can make this a “rice” bowl by serving it in a bowl over hot caulirice. However you decide to serve it, you’ll love every bite!
