Keto Mongolian Beef Crockpot Recipe


This keto Mongolian Beef Crockpot recipe has been a saving grace for me. Overall I’ve been super happy with the keto diet but one thing I miss is eating out at all my favorite places like Chinese, Spanish, and Mexican restaurants. This recipe checks the boxes for a great keto Chinese food option at home. Not only is it really easy to make, but it also tastes as good, if not better than takeout.

I’m not sure if you read my post about getting fiber on keto but this recipe falls into a good option to increase fiber too because of the broccoli that’s served on the side, and the sesame seeds and green onions that are a garnish. To increase fiber even more you could sprinkle some flaxseed in at the time of cooking.

Keto Mongolian Beef Inspo

This recipe was inspired by All Day I Dream About Food (one of my favorites!) and I pretty much followed her recipe. At the time of making I didn’t have sesame oil so I used avocado oil. I also didn’t have brown swerve so used white. The brown swerve would have made it more of a molasses base which is important for the gravy but mine was still amazing! She also waits to put the xantham gum into the end. It’s used as a thickener. I was in a hurry and accidentally put it in at the start. It turned out great so going forward that is how I will do it. Just throw it all in, whisking well.

Leftover Keto Mongolian Beef

I love the leftovers. All the ingredients meld together and it tastes even better the next day. I also mix everything together to keep the rice and broccoli moist. A little secret, I do this the first night too. Some people don’t like their foods to touch but I love it all combined to get every flavor in one bite. A mouth explosion! Doesn’t this leftover Mongolian beef dish look good?

If you aren't doing keto this crockpot Mongolian beef recipe is still going to be a hit with you and your family. Keto is all about FULL flavors, not low fat. So, if you don't have swerve (sugar substitute), like the recipe calls for and you are not doing keto, you can substitute it with real brown sugar.
