This recipe for ground beef kefta is loaded with flavor and 100% keto diet friendly. The beefy kefta have a Mediterranean vibe because they are seasoned with lemon zest, herbs, smoked paprika, and cumin. The key to making flavorful ground beef kefta is to season aggressively – be be aggressive hey!
You want the ground beef kefta to be so tasty that it just slaps your taste buds in all the right places – and remember, overcooking ground beef is a no-no. So if you are not sure when the kefta are done, cut one in half. The last thing you want is dry little sad kefta. 😉
I serve these juicy ground beef kefta with a cool and creamy lemony yogurt sauce. It pairs great with the flavors of the kefta and I absolutely love the temperature difference of hot kefta and cold yogurt.
Keto Ground Beef Recipes
If you are on the keto diet and looking for tasty beef recipes, then you have to make this one. This is an easy keto recipe that anyone can make for meal prep for the week, and it makes 5 servings.
I also have the best stuffed bell pepper recipe that happens to be keto as well. This keto beef recipes is served with low carb veggie pilaf. A traditional pilaf is rice-based. I just decided to get rid of the rice and use all veggies!
Cauliflower and broccoli are chopped into small bite size pieces and cooked with onions, garlic, and mustard seeds. The seeds add a really nice floral flavor to the veggies, much like Indian dishes have.
The key is to cover the pan with a lid. That way the veggies steam while they saute. To add even more flavor, I like to grate in some lemon zest. I mean you don’t call me obsessed with zest for no reason. Fr a bit of texture, I like to add some pecans. You can toast them if you want to make them even more tasty.
Budget Recipes For Ground Beef
If you see that ground beef is on sale, buy in bulk and put it in the freezer. This entire budget friendly meal comes in at under $4 per meal. Can you believe we are getting this kind of nutrition and flavor for such a cheap price!?
The key for budget recipes is to buy when items are on sale and also buy veggies that are inexpensive. Broccoli and cauliflower are always cheap, and they happen to be low carb and delish.
