Ingredients

  • 23 lb 300 g ground beef
  • 3 oz. 75 g butter
  • ½ lb 225 g broccoli
  • salt and pepper
  • ½ cup 125 ml mayonnaise or crème fraîche (optional)

Instructions

Instructions are for 2 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Rinse and trim the broccoli, including the stem. Cut into small florets. Peel the stem and cut into small pieces.
  2. Heat up a hearty dollop of butter in a frying pan where you can fit both the ground beef and broccoli.
  3. Brown the ground beef on high heat until it is almost done. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Lower the heat, add more butter and fry the broccoli for 3-5 minutes. Stir the ground beef every now and then.
  5. Season the broccoli. Top with the remaining butter and serve while still hot. It's also delicious to serve with an extra dollop of crème fraiche or mayonnaise.

Tip!

This strict keto dish can be cooked with other low-carb vegetables like zucchini, asparagus, green beans and spinach. Feel free to flavor with your favorite spice – chili and paprika powder, some herbs or onion powder all add flavor!

    What do you do with the mayonnaise or creme freche (if you decide to use it)?

    I prefer twice as much vegetables.
  3. janet
    it says "optional" i'm guessing you would mix it in after it has finished cooking... just for creaminess.

    Heating butter on high torches it. Is this acceptable?
  5. Rita

    It's no very clear if you use some of the mayonnaise & cream while cooking, or just after. The word "extra" confuses me

  9. Rosa Maria

    When it says "4 1/2" ounces broccoli, is that on a food scale? Or in a measured cup? There is a big difference! The cup is way smaller :)

    Thanks,
    Katie

    This dish sounds so very simple. However, it seems to have been written by a high school drop-out. Please update it to include what exactly to do w/ the mayo mixture.
  15. Sarah
    Whoever suggested mayo, needs to be beaten with a stick. Completely nauseating...
  16. Mooney
    It’s very clear and obvious to me.

    Should I drain my ground beef..?

  18. Kristin Parker Team Diet Doctor
    That's up to you! There are different levels of fat content in different ground beefs. If you feel it's too greasy, you can drain it.
  19. Doing keto again.
    In the nutrition fact part, you put 5g of carb and under it 3g of fiber
    So the net carb intake is 2g or did you already reduce it ?

    This is 5g net carbs, as we recommend people track. We know some people do count total carbs or need to keep track of fiber intake so we list that separately.

    Do I have to fry the veggies? Can I steam them and then add butter or mayo on them? The frying is making me have this gross feeling

    You can prep the veggies however you enjoy them the most.

  26. Ariana
    I just made this and it’s soooo goood! I added garlic, smoked paprika, a little cayenne, mayo and hot sauce and it’s to die for! And its keto! I’ll be making this often from now on. Great and simple recipe, thank you!
  27. Sylvia
    I made this tonight and it was so good! I couldn"t believed how much 3 oz of butter (i made for 2 people)! I didnt measure brocoli, just used what I had and added some left over green beens. Cooked onions with it too.

    I'm trying this recipe tonight. I think that adding onions or spices is to whatever your taste buds like. I think i will add cream cheese to my dish tonight. Adding spices like chili powder, onion powder, paprika, pepper and possibly a small amount of cayenne. Fingers crossed. Our 13 year old is really tiny so i think i will make a small amount of rice for her though. Thanks for the recipes.

    Kaite.....I believe it is 4.5 ounces......pretty much...add as much as you like. If you want less broccoli, then I'd measure by cups. Pretty much add or use as little or much as you like. I suggest more....Yum!
