WHAT KIND OF GROUND BEEF TO USE
When I shop at Giant Eagle, I always check to see if they have Certified Angus Beef® ground beef on sale. I feel that this is the best quality of beef and Giant Eagle has a large selection to choose from.
I usually buy the 85% ground beef because I want some fat for flavor but not too much excess grease. If you have a preference for a fattier meat, just drain some of the grease out and if you want to use a leaner beef, you may need to add a bit more oil to some of these recipes.
Why ground beef is great on a keto diet
I love ground beef for keto recipes for 3 reasons. It is :
- Inexpensive – You can buy hamburger meat just about anywhere and it doesn’t break your budget. Sometimes I buy large quantities of ground beef when it’s on sale and freeze it in 1lb servings.
- Tasty – I flavor my ground beef in many different ways. On burgers I love to use steak seasoning, taco seasoning, Italian seasonings, etc. I just depends on the recipe. But you always have the meaty taste that goes great with vegetables, cauliflower rice, zucchini noodles etc.
- Versatile – Below you will see how versatile hamburger meat is. It’s a good way to add protein and fat when on a keto diet and it has 0 carbs. I use it in soups, salads, casseroles, burgers, pastas, stir fries and more.
