KETO BEEF HOTPOT WITH SWEDE AND BUTTERNUT SQUASH

keto beef hotpot with swede and butternut squash

Keto Beef Hotpot with Swede and Butternut Squash: easy, delicious and a great winter warmer. Just 12.5g carbs. This may sound like a lot of carbohydrates for a ketogenic dinner. But it’s a satisfying, rich, all-in-one meal and about 1/2 of a keto daily carb allowance (20-30g carbs daily is the norm). If you want less carbs, just reduce the amount of swede (rutabaga) and/or butternut squash. Or you can omit the peas (-1.25g carbs per serving). My Keto Beef Hotpot with Swede and Butternut Squash makes my ketohusband (aka munch monster) Continue reading KETO BEEF HOTPOT WITH SWEDE AND BUTTERNUT SQUASH

KETO BEEF SHIN WITH CREAMED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

Keto Beef Shin with Creamed Brussels Sprouts: beautiful, comfort food at its best and only 8.5g carbs per serving. How can anyone resist meat when it’s so sweetly succulent and tender? Shin, also known as shank, isn’t a popular cut of meat. But that’s probably because many people regard it as a hard, chewy meat. What they perhaps don’t realise, is that the tough connective tissue that runs through it brakes down when cooked for a long time over low heat. Braising, or slow cooking, results in a tender, moist, richly flavoured Continue reading KETO BEEF SHIN WITH CREAMED BRUSSELS SPROUTS

Best Keto Italian Ragú aka Bolognese Sauce: the classic way…with some keto extras. Just like mama used to make. For real. This recipe was passed on to me by my mum and is the tastiest ever, ragú or bolognese sauce you’ll ever eat. My original ragú recipe was buried within my ricotta gnocchi post and wasn’t easy to find at all. I thought tagging would be enough, but apparently, lots of people don’t realise that by entering a keyword in the search box you could find it. So many readers have asked Continue reading BEST KETO ITALIAN RAGÚ aka BOLOGNESE SAUCE

LOW CARB HEALTHY CHEESE BURGERS

low carb healthy cheese burgers

You can make these tasty low carb healthy cheeseburgers in less time than it would take you to go to the shop and buy ready-made ones. Packaged burgers are full of fillers and additives. Even ‘premium’ ones cannot beat home made patties made with YOUR choice of minced meat, YOUR choice of herbs and spices, and YOUR choice of flavourings.  I must admit that, before my ketogenic days, I too used to buy burgers at the supermarket. It used to take me ages to choose the ‘best’ ones. I would spend literally Continue reading LOW CARB HEALTHY CHEESE BURGERS

These little low carb pork and beef polpette burgers are so quick and easy that you will want to make them all the time. So, I hear you ask, what on earth are polpette ? They are an Italian sort-of meat patties, sometimes incorrectly referred to as meatballs, which are usually fried and served with a side salad or maybe mashed potatoes. Traditionally, polpette contain bread, milk, boiled potatoes and breadcrumbs, as well as meat, egg and seasoning. Where meatballs are small and ball-like, polpette are bigger, rounder and flatter, with a slight dome. Continue reading LOW CARB PORK AND BEEF POLPETTE BURGERS
