Keto Minced Beef with Beans and Spinach

This Keto Minced Beef with Beans and Spinach recipe resembles sticky Korean Stir Fry, a beautiful balance of sweet, spicy and salty. Whether you are on a Keto diet or not, this is a very tasty dish that you could enjoy with family.

Ground beef is an easy-to-prep component of Mexican or Asian dishes like enchiladas, tacos, menudo, stir fry, and so much more. But the thing that keeps me thinking, is ground beef the same as minced beef. In the Philippines, we call it ground beef but here in New Zealand, it is called minced beef. What is the difference? According to my research, when you say minced beef is 100% pure beef while ground beef is the blended version. Minced beef has no additives unlike ground beef has an “extended product”. Now that I know, I guess I can say that I am pretty lucky I can buy minced beef instead of ground beef. That also explains why ground beef is so much cheaper than the minced. Anyway, let us start cooking this delicious dish that is Keto-friendly and Asian inspired.

How to Make Keto Minced Beef with Beans and Spinach?

In a large non-stick pan or wok over high heat, add sesame oil, garlic, chili and onion. Stir fry for 2-3 minutes or until fragrant. Add the minced beef and stir fry until browned. Pour in the sauce and cook until it has reduced and thickened. Make sure that the minced beef is coated with the thickened sauce. Remove the pan from the heat and mix through the scallions and sesame seeds.

NOTES:

  • Adjust the amount of sweetener in this dish if you wish. It really depends on your personal tastes.
  • You can use coconut oil instead of sesame oil if you don’t have one, but I think sesame oil gives a nice kick to the dish.
  • You can use either minced or ground beef.
  • Serve with cauliflower rice.
  • Leftover Keto Minced Beef with Beans and Spinach Stir Fry can be stored in the fridge for up to 3 days, or 3 months if frozen.
