Recipes Using Keto Steak & Peppers
This is a keto recipe that you can use to make other recipes. That’s what makes it an ideal keto meal prep recipe. Use the shredded steak and peppers in your fajitas. Or you can add it on top of your taco salad or low carb tacos. Another favorite is to make a keto fajita pie
with the leftover steak as a filling.
My favorite way is to top the steak and peppers mixture over cauliflower rice or shirataki rice. My favorite shirataki rice is by Zeroodle
. It is very low in carbs and doesn’t have that weird smell or texture like other shirataki noodles have.
Another option is to pour the keto steak and peppers mixture over low carb noodles. You can use shirataki noodles
or a low carb pasta like the ones by Great Low Carb Bread Company
