Ground beef is an affordable, versatile and delicious keto ingredient that can be used in many recipes. Not only that, but its high protein content makes it perfect for keto meals!

In recent years, the keto diet has grown increasingly popular. It’s a high-fat, low-carb meal plan that encourages weight loss and promotes overall wellbeing.

Taco Soup

Taco Soup is a classic soup made with ground beef, tomatoes and beans. It makes an excellent low carb meal that can be topped off with sour cream or cheese for extra flavor.

This low carb taco soup recipe is simple to make and the whole family will love it! With only 30 minutes to prepare time, this keto recipe should be added to your cookbook!

To begin making this soup, begin by browning ground beef on the stovetop. Drain any fat and return the meat to the pan, breaking up any clumps as necessary.

In the same pot, saute onions and peppers until soft. Stir in garlic and paprika until thoroughly mixed.

Add the beef back to the pan along with water and sliced carrots. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to medium and simmer for 45 minutes.


Goulash, an iconic American comfort food, is made with tender noodles tossed in ground beef, veggies and a zesty tomato sauce. It’s an easy but filling meal perfect for busy weeknights.

This keto recipe for ground beef is quick and effortless to prepare, whether in the crock pot or stove top. Plus, it’s low in calories – ideal for anyone on a keto diet or looking to reduce their carb intake.

Traditional goulash (gulyas) is typically made with chunks of carrot, onion and sometimes potato stewed in a thick beef broth. This keto version uses chopped mushrooms and tomatoes simmered in the same beef broth as well as extra beef for even more flavor!

This soup has plenty of flavor without the fat, making it ideal for those on a keto diet. You can substitute ground beef with turkey or chicken if you’d prefer a leaner option.


Ground beef is the ideal ingredient for keto dinner recipes due to its affordability and versatility. From meatloaf and goulash to chili and vegetable dishes, ground beef has something special to offer everyone.

For optimal results, use high-quality lean ground beef. 80/20 ground beef is ideal, but leaner options are also available.

For a delicious keto recipe, cook the meat slowly until it is completely cooked through. Doing this will guarantee that the meat is juicy and tender.

For this soup, I’ve used fat-free half-and-half and light cream cheese to reduce the fat content. You can also top off with some sour cream or salsa for an extra creamy finish. This keto soup is a real winner – easy to prepare and makes enough food for everyone in your household; plus it’s convenient to reheat and store for later. Perfect for meal prepping or taking on road trips!

Stuffed Bell Peppers

Stuffed peppers are a timeless comfort food that never goes out of style. Not only are they easy to make, but their delicious taste is hard to beat.

This recipe utilizes ground beef and an exquisite spice blend to fill bell peppers. They’re then topped off with cheese and baked until golden brown for a meal everyone will love.

Make these delish stuffed peppers with just a few ingredients in no time! Plus, this dish makes an ideal make-ahead dish that tastes even better the next day!

These delicious stuffed peppers are packed with ground beef, tomato sauce and rice before being topped off with cheese – then baked to perfection! Enjoy them on their own or add veggies for a complete meal!

Before stuffing the peppers, they are precooked to keep them tender and prevent dryness or sogginess. You may opt out of this step if you prefer your peppers more crispy; either way, this simple trick guarantees your stuffed peppers cook through perfectly every time.
