How to Make Keto Korean Beef

Here’s everything that you’ll need to know in order to stir fry your ground beef and then prepare the homemade spicy sauce:

  • Cook the beef. Add the ground beef and stir fry until done.
  • Cook the remaining ingredients. Add the minced garlic cloves, soy sauce, 15 drops of liquid stevia, and red pepper flakes and continue to stir fry for 2-3 minutes or until the sauce has thickened to your liking.

How to Store Keto Korean Beef Leftovers

You’ll want to first allow your korean beef leftovers to cool completely before transferring them into an airtight container to store in the fridge (you can add the beef and the sauce into the same container).

Your leftovers will keep in the fridge for up to 2-3 days.

You can also freeze your leftovers by storing them in the same way in the freezer for up to 4 months.

Best Way to Reheat Keto Korean Beef

When you’re ready to reheat your korean beef, there are only two options I would recommend when it comes to preserving the maximum amount of flavor.

You should either warm it up in the microwave or stir fry it in a wok once again until the beef is heated through.

  1. What fat content for the ground beef would be best? I usually use 93\7 so I don’t have to drain lots of water or fat from the pan. That was pre Keto though and now I just don’t know. Help! This recipe looks great and I’d love to make it soon.

    • Hey Debbie! You can definitely go as lean as you want with the ground beef.

      I personally like to use 80/20 or 85/15.
