There’s nothing like a warm, hearty bowl of soup on a cold day or evening. This keto Italian beef stew is the perfect soup for those such days. This stew is filled with chunks of beef, tomato, your favorite keto vegetables and it’s simmered in the oven for several hours.

I like making keto soups when I meal prep because they are easy to make up and easy to reheat a few days later when you want to serve the soup for dinner.

Beef Stew Vegetables

Vegetables add a ton of flavor to your keto stews. The best part is that you can add any of your favorite vegetables to your soup as long as they are low carb.

Some of my favorite keto vegetables to add to a keto stew recipe are:

  • onions
  • mushrooms
  • celery
  • tomatoes
  • zucchini
  • bell pepper
  • kale
  • spinach
  • chard
  • carrot

In case you are wonder, carrots are high in carbs and some don’t think they are allowed on the keto diet, but as long as you keep your macros low enough, you can enjoy a little portion of carrots in the stew for flavor and color. This recipe includes a few ounces of carrots – which is just a few carbs for the entire stew.

Instant Pot or Slow Cooker Instructions

If you don’t want to cook this stew in the oven, you can cook it in an instant pot or a slow cooker.

To cook this keto stew in a pressure cooker, saute your beef with the olive oil until browned. Then add in vegetables. Saute for 2-3 minutes. Add in almond flour, wine, chicken broth and tomatoes. Pressure cook on high for 35 minutes. Let pressure release naturally for 10 minutes before releasing the valve.

To cook the beef italian stew in the slow cooker, saute the stew meat in a skillet with olive oil to brown on all sides. Transfer to a slow cooker, along with remaining ingredients. Slow cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.

  1. I made the Low Carb Italian Beef Stew Recipe.
    It was fabulous! I added a little more meat as we are hearty eaters. And a garden salad in the side. Very good!

  2. Delicious! I love carrots so I did add some. Definitely will be making this again. The wine really gives it great flavor.
