Quick and Easy Weeknight Dinner Meal

I rely on easy keto recipes like this one for lunch and dinner during the week.

This simple stir fry recipe is a great way for beginners on a keto diet to gain confidence in the kitchen, use up leftover ingredients, and get a family-friendly meal on the table in record time.

Since the keto stir fry is so flexible, you can use just about any low-carb vegetables you already have on hand in the fridge. Feel free to swap in asparagus, snap peas, broccoli, kale, or whatever else you might have.

Cook the veggies, mix in the meat and add sauce. The process is practically fool-proof!

If you follow these keto meal prep tips, you know meal prepping with precooked meat can save a lot of time. Bulk cooking keto basic ground beef, then dividing it into individual recipes will make this recipe go even faster!

Ingredients

The bright medley of colors is so pretty in this recipe. Everyone is sure to enjoy it.

  • Coconut oil – Using oil rather than butter or duck fat keeps this recipe dairy-free. Coconut oil has a mild flavor too. It’s nice to have a neutral base that does not compete with the other flavors.
  • Red onion – A spicy red onion is my first choice, but you can use any onion you have on hand. White and yellow onions will also work.
  • Garlic – Isn’t everything better with garlic?
  • Ginger root – You can’t make a Chinese stir-fry without this signature flavor. Substitute 1 teaspoon ginger powder for fresh ginger if preferred.
  • Vegetables – I use green beans, mushrooms, and red bell pepper, but you can mix and match any low-carb vegetables you have on hand. Take a look at our Keto Shopping List for more ideas.
  • Ground beef – 75/25 ground beef is perfect for this; it has a higher fat content that keeps recipes moist and delicious. Buy ground beef in bulk to save money on your grocery bill! You can use 80/20 or 85/15 ground beef too.
  • Salt – I like salty, savory food and never miss a chance to use different types of culinary salt.
  • Keto soy sauce – Make your own homemade Keto Soy Sauce or use a store-bought option like tamari (gluten-free, organic soy), Bragg’s liquid aminos, (gluten-free, non-GMO soy) or coconut aminos (gluten and soy-free) to add the classic Asian flavor.
  • Sesame oil – Toss the cooked ingredients in sesame oil for an authentic Asian finish.
  • Green onion – Finely chopped green onion makes the dish pop with color when you serve it and adds a bit more flavor.

Directions

Follow step by step to make the perfect keto stir fry!

How to Store Stir Fry

Since there are 4 servings of ground beef stir fry in this recipe, it’s usually an appropriate size for a family dinner.

There are two options for storing leftovers.

Pack the remaining portion in an airtight container and store it in the fridge for 3-5 days. Alternatively, place the meat and vegetables in a freezer bag or container and freeze for up to 3 months. Always be sure to label and date the container, so you remember what it is!

What to Serve with a Low Carb Stir Fry

I usually serve this low-carb stir fry all by itself because it’s a complete meal of meat and veggies. However, there are many other sides you can pair with it if you need to stretch the dish for more servings or like adding sides.
