Keto Beef Stew

Keto Beef Stew

So far, snow and winter weather have dominated 2019 for me. My husband and I live in the Midwest, so we are definitely experiencing intense storms! Unfortunately, I am not sitting on a beach right now. However, I did make the most comforting beef stew to handle all the cold! My husband was convinced this stew included potato, but it simply had cauliflower. This stew is cooked very low and slow, resulting in the tenderest meat and most amazing flavors. It’s a rich and satisfying stew. I’d consider it to be very traditional, without any carb heavy ingredients. It’s also very easy to make – the hardest part will simply be waiting to enjoy it!

Keto Beef Stew

Cooking Method: Dutch Oven

For this stew, I specifically used my dutch oven. If you don’t have one, I’d recommend you get one! They’re great for stews, due to their large size and overall construction. They may be one of the most versatile items I own, which is a huge necessity for me. They can tolerate a wide range of temperatures and cooking methods. Here is a great option, if you’re looking for one – This specific dutch oven is even dishwasher safe! Those are pretty much my 2 kitchen criterion. I like appliances that are not fussy and that are dishwasher safe!

I have this recipe consisting of 3 servings, resulting in just 7 net carbs, 16 g of fat, 34 g of protein, and 330 calories per serving. I’d recommend to incorporate a nice fat-heavy side or dessert to go along with this beef stew! For instance, my cheesecake bites are still fairly low carb, but have a great amount of fat included, with each bite resulting in 120 calories, 11 g of fat, and 1 net carb. They would be a great addition:

Hope you enjoy!
