Ground Beef FAQ
Ground beef is an excellent keto-friendly ingredient for general meal prep. It’s quick to cook, easy to find, and one of the most affordable cuts of beef.
Per 4 ounces (113 grams), a serving of 80/20 ground beef has 20 grams of protein, 22 grams of fat, and 0 grams of carbohydrate. Each serving is 278 total calories.
Any ratio will be fine for a keto diet. However, 80/20 is the kind I use most because it’s fatty enough to taste good and cook well but not too greasy that it should be drained.
If your ground beef is very lean, adding a small amount of cooking oil will prevent the meat from burning and sticking to the pan.
Unlike steaks and roasts, ground beef does not need any rest time. Instead, cook it evenly by breaking large pieces apart with a spatula and occasionally stirring until no pink remains.
Store cooked beef in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for three to four days. Freeze for up to four months.
