Keto beef ramen

Noodle on this: spicy Asian noodle soup with noodles that aren't noodles. Well, perhaps they are noodles, but they're noodles without the carbs. For a flavorful keto take on this ramen-esque classic, dig into a tasty bowl with beef, broth, bok choy, and eggs. Plus noodles—sort of.

Tip!

Shirataki noodles, also known as konnyaku noodles or miracle noodles, are made from konjac, a plant that grows in eastern Asia. They are naturally gluten-free and have little to no taste by themselves. Shirataki noodles are sold packaged in water, and they should be drained and rinsed before using.

In order to make this into a simple weeknight recipe we’ve used ready made bouillon cubes but if you want to take this dish to the next level we recommend using a homemade broth.

    The Keto Beef Ramen recipe is missing how to cook the bok choy. I used the coconut oil after I cooked the rib eye.

    Delicious! First time trying these noodles; they were different at first, but after they soaked up the broth, amazing! Such a great carb noodle substitute. I put the bok choy in raw and it was great.

    Where can you find these noodles? I've looked everywhere. Noodles are the one thing I miss on Low carb.

    You can get them at most grocery stores in the US, also online from Amazon or other retailers. You do have to be careful to read the ingredients because many will have extra starches, meaning your carbohydrate count goes way up.

    C -- I live in the middle of nowhere, USA and our walmart carries them. For us, they're in the produce section with the (refrigerated) tofu, vegan cheese, etc. Little plastic packs.

    I much prefer the old way of displaying the recipes; this new way uses too much paper.

    No Miso? Is Miso Bad on Keto?
