Keto Cube Steak Recipe

No matter what anyone tells you, the secret to any low carb cubed steak recipe is time. Minute steaks are typically made with beef that comes from the top or bottom round.

Since these cuts contain a high amount of collagen, they require more cooking time to become tender.

This is why this recipe is made using a crock pot, even though it could be cooked on the stove top or air fryer.

Ingredients You’ll Need

Steak – This recipe is made with cubed steak, but you can also substitute it with round steak.

Mushrooms – The low carb content of mushrooms make them a great compliment to any ketogenic dish.

Heavy Cream – Used as a base for the mushroom gravy.

Cream Cheese – Blends with heavy cream to add a rich taste and smooth texture to the gravy.

Beef Broth – Adds a touch of umami flavor.

Tips and Variations

  • Eggs and Cheddar: Garnish the steak with scrambled eggs.

    Eggs can add a tremendous amount of flavor when they get combined with the cheese.

  • Cream of Mushroom Soup: You can cut out the mushrooms as well as the heavy cream and cream cheese and substitute them with 12 oz cream of mushroom soup.

    This will lower the calories of the dish and make it lighter.

  • Chicken Fried Steak: Dredge the steaks in almond flour and parmesan, then dip them in cream and eggs.

    Fry on each side until crisp.

  • Breakfast Sandwich: Pan frying the steaks is a great way to turn them into a healthy breakfast sandwich.

You can store the cube steaks in the fridge and consume them in the next 3 to 5 days.

To keep the taste inside better I also recommend covering the dish with plastic wrap.

    • Hey,

      Yes, that’s possible – it’s why I put a disclaimer right underneath the nutritional chart. It says that it “should only be treated as an estimate”. Regardless of the calories, this recipe is absolutely keto. I hope the steaks turned out delicious though!
