Keto Korean ground beef is a savory-sweet recipe with a little heat that is easy and quick to make. It really doesn’t get any easier than this. If you know how to brown ground beef, you can make this recipe and it will only take you 15 minutes to make! And since we are using ground beef, this recipe is also budget friendly!
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!
Korean beef is a favorite food of mine, so I keep this recipe in our meal rotations every month. I love the combination of spice, salt and sweetness in the brown sauce. There are so many ways you can enjoy this delicious meal which makes if perfect for busy weeks.
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!
