CAN YOU EAT GROUND BEEF ON A KETO DIET?
Absolutely! It perfectly fits the bill. Living a keto lifestyle

Cream cheese and heavy cream are used in many keto ground beef recipes and this one is no exception. Together, with the ground beef, they create the perfect most flavorful sauce that is reminiscent of Beef Stroganoff, at least that is what I’ve read in the hundreds of comments on Facebook.

WHAT IS THE BEST CAST-IRON SKILLET?
I prefer to use a cast-iron skillet when I make this keto recipe with ground beef as it goes from stove to oven with only one dish. If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet, they are very affordable and last forever. This 10.25 Cast Iron Skillet works perfectly with this recipe.

DO I HAVE TO HAVE A CAST-IRON SKILLET TO MAKE THIS KETO GROUND BEEF CASSEROLE?
No, it is not necessary. Any skillet will do. If your skillet isn’t oven-safe, simply transfer the keto ground beef mixture to a baking dish before adding the green beans and cheese. Most everyone has casserole dishes that can be used for any type of skillet meal if a cast-iron skillet isn’t available.

doesn’t mean that you have to feel as if you’re missing out. You can enjoy many of the same comfort foods and tastes that you’ve always eaten. There are many delicious keto ground beef recipes that provide lots of variety in tastes and flavors.

VARIATIONS TO THIS RECIPE:
I’ve had many comments from those who are adamant that they don’t like canned green beans. I created this low carb ground beef casserole recipe with canned green beans since most have a can or frozen green beans in their pantry. Fresh green beans go bad quickly so they may not be an option for everyone. However, feel free to swap out the canned green beans for frozen or fresh. Depending on how you prefer your green beans you may want to steam fresh green beans first. Here are a few other ideas:

Use Fresh Bean Greens
Use riced cauliflower, broccoli, or another favorite low carb veggie in place of the green beans
Replace ground beef with ground turkey, ground venison, or shaved skirt steak
Change up the cheeses! Try adding Pepper Jack, Colby Jack, or another favorite cheese.
Add additional spices such as more garlic, paprika,
HOW TO STORE LOW CARB GROUND BEEF CASSEROLE
Keto and low-carb casserole are typically great for meal plans as they keep well for several days. Store this low-carb Ground Beef Casserole in the fridge for about three to five days. If you can’t eat it all during that time, store in the freezer for six months in airtight containers. It does contain dairy products, which sometimes break down when frozen. It shouldn’t change the taste, but the texture of the sauce might change.

Seriously…look at all the cheesy goodness! You’ll love this hearty meal!
