Slow Cooker Beef Casserole

This is a keto-friendly version of a casserole that we’ve had in my family for years. It’s not quite as good as the original recipe, but is still very tasty and filling.

I cooked it in my slow cooker, but you could easily cook it in an oven (reducing the time accordingly) if you don’t have a slow cooker. Because I cut the meat into bite sized pieces, and because my slow cooker is quite hot [Read more…]

Cheesy Taco Mince

We created this recipe through trial and error when we were looking for something quick, easy, and tasty to make with mince.

Although we would like to use more taco seasoning (we love taco seasoning), we limit the amount to keep the carbs down and use tabasco sauce to add to the flavour. We also use a significant amount of cheese [Read more…]

Bacon Wrapped Beef Patties with Cheese

I came across these delicious looking photos of a meal in a reddit post several months ago. As there was no recipe posted with the photos, I thought that there were enough step-by-step photos for me to be able to try to build a recipe myself. Despite my limited culinary skills. I don’t know what I was thinking. [Read more…]

Roast Beef and Gravy

This is a simple slow-cooker roast beef with a plain gravy. The taste of the gravy will be strongly influenced by the beef stock you use – I used Campbell’s liquid stock and we both thought it was a reasonably good substitute for regular carby gravy. [Read more…]

Slow Cooker Beef Goulash

I adapted this recipe from a non-keto recipe I found on the internet. It tasted quite good, without being anything special. We’ll probably have it again, but I think there’s probably room for improvement [Read more…]

Beef Rissoles

I adapted this recipe from a non-keto recipe I found on the internet, and I was very pleasantly surprised at how well it turned out. The rissoles are very tasty, and are particularly nice with plenty of tomato ketchup. [Read more…]

Slow Cooker Chili

This recipe is based on Caveman Keto’s recipe here, with a few small tweaks to quantities and spices.

I never would have thought of cooking chili in the slow cooker, but it really does work so well (the idea is genius!). The long cooking time seems to aid the flavour and makes the mince really tender. We absolutely love this chili! [Read more…]

Shredded Beef Burgers

We have missed burgers since starting keto, so we decided to make our own. These turned out really well – delicious actually! They are not as firm as ordinary burgers (due to the oopsie rolls being softer than ordinary burger buns), which means they can be a little messy to eat. They’re also fiddly and time consuming to make. But the taste and enjoyment more than makes up for both the mess and the fuss. [Read more…]

Shredded Beef

We like this shredded beef recipe for the slow-cooker that we found here. It’s simple to make, and the flavour was good enough to eat on its own. We also used this shredded beef in our shredded beef burgers and it was perfect! [Read more…]
