Quick tip before getting started; we use the highest fat ground beef that is available which is called “3 stars” or 15% fat. There will be some rendering of the fat as it cooks and it will look like water in your frying pan – we want that fat to stay with the beef, please don’t drain it off.

This Keto Basic Ground Beef recipe makes 8 portions of approximately 200g/7oz. Each of these portions can be used to make a different meal.

Store leftover Keto Basic Ground Beef in the fridge for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 3 months.
