Steak has got to be at the top of your list of favorite #foods #ketogenic. Unfortunately, when you go on a restrictive #diet like #keto, some of those #recipes comfort foods you look forward to are off-limits. Lucky for you, #steak is still your friend.
Whether you have some steak in the fridge you don’t know what to do with, or you truly can’t live another day without putting a #juicy keto steak in your mouth, you’ve come to the right place.
In case you need a refresher, the ketogenic diet entails getting roughly 80% of your calories from fat, and slashing carbs to fewer than 50 grams per day.
Steak on its own is pretty keto-friendly, where you can get into trouble and tip your carb intake overboard is with the typical sides, like mashed potatoes or fries.
So some tasty steak recipes won’t mess up your keto diet.

2. Keto Beef Teriyaki With Sesame And Kale

Mushrooms and asparagus are a great accompaniment to beef, and this recipe could not be easier to make.

“Choosing asparagus is easy. Just look for firm, fresh, spears with closed, compact tips and uniform diameter so that all spears will cook in the same amount of time.
According to the folks at the Michigan Asparagus Advisory Board, larger diameter spears are more tender (they should know).”

This would be a great dish to serve up at a dinner party!
9. Grilled Flank Steak
The author had added some avocado to the chimichurri, which is not necessary, but boy does it taste good! Additionally, healthy fats are always good to have on the ketogenic diet.
The flank steak is grilled and quite simple to make, add some salt and pepper and throw it in the pan as usual — nothing fancy here.
10. Paleo-Italian Carpaccio
Carpaccio is a traditional Italian dish in which raw meat is enjoyed with a side of greens, it is best enjoyed cold, just how sashimi is usually served.
The trick to making this dish perfect is to make sure you slice the meat as thin as you possibly can to get the right texture and the best taste experience.
11. Low Carb Stuffed Flank Steak
While not as easy to make as the previous recipes, and while not as low in carbs, this recipe is perfect for blowing your guests away: they’ll never know it’s keto-approved!

12. Butter Coffee Rubbed Tri-Tip Steak
We’ve all heard of bulletproof coffee and fatty coffees which contain butter, but this receipt wanted to mix this super drink with some super steak.
These tri-tip steaks are rubbed with instant coffee, which creates a depth, smokey flavor throughout the meat.
13. Garlic Butter Steak Bites
This steak recipe is the exact opposite of the previous one: it shouldn’t take you more than 5 minutes to make, and there are only four ingredients (olive oil, butter, garlic, and parsley leaves).
If you’re looking for a quick keto lunch or you hate being in the kitchen, this recipe is for you.
14. Braised Sirloin Steaks
The secret to the tenderness of these steaks is that you are grilling first to get the charring, then simmering them in the oven to ensure you have a steak that can be cut with a fork!
Try not to grind the spices too much as you want to keep a lovely texture to the meat.
This mix of spices and seasoning will give you steaks that are full of flavor and impressive enough for a celebration meal or dinner party.
15. Filet Mignon
Filet mignon is found at the end of the tenderloin cut of beef and is regarded as a luxury cut.
It is quite expensive, but it is so worth it, especially for a celebration or fancy dinner party.
You can cook this on the grill or in the oven, but try to avoid piercing the meat at all because this will make the juices escaped and the filet less tender.
